You can be our next Spring T-SQL Guru !!

    General discussion



  • In the northern hemisphere at least, Spring is here! (apparently)

    And at TechNet Wiki, we're hoping you're all hatching new ideas for this month's TechNet Guru competition!

    We're looking for more shoots and leaves of wisdom to sprout forth from the great tree of MSDN/TechNet life.

    We're also hoping some of our old Guru winners will be coming back out of hibernation and flexing their grey matter!

    So, pick up your pen and MARCH into TechNet History! This could truly be the start of something BEAUTIFUL!

    What delightful new arrival will YOU be bringing into this world?

    All you have to do is add an article to TechNet Wiki from your own specialist field. Something that fits into one of the categories listed on the submissions page. Copy in your own blog posts, a forum solution, a white paper, or just something you had to solve for your own day's work today.

    Drop us some nifty knowledge, or superb snippets, and become MICROSOFT TECHNOLOGY GURU OF THE MONTH!

    This is an official Microsoft TechNet recognition, where people such as yourselves can truly get noticed!

    HOW TO WIN

    1) Please copy over your Microsoft technical solutions and revelations to TechNet Wiki.

    2) Add a link to it on THIS WIKI COMPETITION PAGE (so we know you've contributed)

    3) Every month, we will highlight your contributions, and select a "Guru of the Month" in each technology.

    If you win, we will sing your praises in blogs and forums, similar to the weekly contributor awards. Once "on our radar" and making your mark, you will probably be interviewed for your greatness, and maybe eventually even invited into other inner TechNet/MSDN circles!

    Winning this award in your favoured technology will help us learn the active members in each community.

    Feel free to ask any questions below.

    Thanks in advance!

    Got any nice code? If you invest time in coding an elegant, novel or impressive answer on MSDN forums, why not copy it over to the one and only TechNet Wiki, for future generations to benefit from! You'll never get archived again!

  • Hi all

    anyone know if/how can we look at the real numbers in the articles statistics?

    I got this message in my profile:
    The article shrink SQL database during restore on the TechNet Wiki is pulling away from the pack. Way to go!

    what is this mean? what are the numbers? is it mean that 2 people looked at the article but other articles looked by 1, or maybe 1 million people looked at the article and all the others  looked by 500k... I want to see the numbers

    Thanks,
    Ronen
