Are you a technology guru? Show us your solutions and become the Integration Services Guru for June 2013!!
TechNet Wiki is looking for and celebrating the best of the best!
Is that you? Do you consider yourself an expert or authority on SQL Server Integration Services?
Show us your forum solutions and become MICROSOFT TECHNOLOGY GURU OF THE MONTH!
This is an official Microsoft TechNet recognition program, where people such as yourselves can get the recognition you deserve, for the time you've given the community.
If you spend any amount of time crafting an awesome answer to a forum question, then why not get the most back for your efforts, by posting it to TechNet Wiki.
1) Please copy over any solutions you post here to TechNet Wiki.
2) Add a link to it on THE JUNE TECHNET GURU WIKI 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.
This is a new initiative, currently only rewarding "textually" in the TechNet blogs, similar to Peter Laker's weekly contributor awards. Once you're "on our radar" and making your mark, you will probably be interviewed for your greatness, and eventually even invited into other TechNet/MSDN circles!
Either way, winning this award in your favored technology can only be good for your career! ;)
All you need to do is find any forum question you have ever answered in this forum (either with a blog post or in the forum thread). Then turn it into a Wiki article in June 2013, and add it to the list on the June TechNet Guru Wiki page! For the May contributions, see TechNet Guru Contributions - May.
For more information on the benefits, recognition points, and glory of posting to TechNet Wiki, please read this sticky note.
Feel free to ask any questions below.
Thanks in advance!
SSIS is the one category for June with no contributions!
So unless someone wants to commit to publish an article in July, it looks like we'll retire SSIS from the TechNet Guru competition.
True. But blogs and wiki aren't exclusive...
After you get into using a wiki, blogs become more like...
- Selfish Authoring (you don't know what this means until you experience how amazing social authoring is)
- Long tweets
One of the reasons is #3 in Wiki Life: Why should I use TechNet Wiki if I already blog about Microsoft technologies?... the Recognition Points and Achievement Medals. It's like you're not getting credit for your accomplishments.
And none of this is a slam on blogs. I blog a lot as well. It's just that if content lives in a social authoring platform, then it can grow, breathe, and get connected to the rest of the content. But if that content is also announced, originally created for, and advertised in a blog, then that's valuable social synergy!
In fact, some people thought it was crazy for me to create a blog about a Wiki. But they didn't understand first hand how valuable a blog can be.
