TechNet Guru Contributions - June 2013

TechNet Guru Contributions - June 2013

 
 

Introduction

If you contribute any new code, or solutions to problems in the following categories, please add your content (that you write for a Forum or Blog) to TechNet Wiki, and then add a link to your TechNet Wiki article below, to let us know.

Submissions for June are now closed. July submissions should go HERE. Winners are announced in this blog post.

This is a TechNet Wiki awards program, so we only want WIKI LINKS for articles created in June, not old, external forum or gallery links. If you have already made a contribution on the forums or gallery, simply copy it into the wiki and reference the original article, like shown here.
 
One winner in each category will be selected each month for glory and adoration by the MSDN/TechNet Ninjas and community as a whole.
This includes a dedicated blog post in the Wiki Ninjas blog, a tweet from the Wiki Ninjas Twitter account, an announcement on your forum, and other acknowledgement from the community.

Winners will be voted on by five judges. The judges consist of 3 TechNet Wiki Community Council members and 2 Microsoft Employee SMEs (Subject Matter Experts -usually the people making the technologies). The judges will be looking for articles that are thorough, technically accurate, visually clear (images might help, but aren't necessary), and well written. (Any community member can help with the "technically accurate" part by reviewing the articles below and either fixing inaccuracies in the article or commenting on them--asking questions or suggesting fixes.) The articles must be written in June 2013 and must be in English. However, the original blog or forum content can be from before June. Make sure you aren't taking credit for someone else's content (you have to be the author of the original content and of the Wiki article). The categories listed are targeted to the most popular forums/technologies and ones that we are able to support. We will add more categories as we go (please don't add more categories, instead, leave a comment at the bottom to suggest a new category).

How to Enter

We'll remove some categories for July if they don't receive contributions in June. We might remove Windows Store Apps for July (since those articles can likely be C# or VB articles). We might combine SharePoint 2013 and SharePoint 2010 for July. Some technologies that are being considered to add for July: FIM, SQL Server Database Engine, and Excel 2013 (+ PowerPivot + Power View). Leave a comment with more suggestions!

  • Naomi, I'm adding links to the forum threads that announce the contest. Please don't remove them!!!!

  • Ed/ Xaml guy, is there an index page listing links to each month's contest pages?

  • I am not removing them, I fixed the incorrect link in T-SQL forum, but I see that you posted new sticky thread in every forum with the wrong link. The first link is linking to May article, not June

  • Paul, see my new article

    social.technet.microsoft.com/.../17641.technet-guru-contributions.aspx

    Feel free to add more content and improve it

  • Naomi, thanks for adding the overall list.

    But you did remove one here, right after I added it: social.technet.microsoft.com/.../compare.aspx

    I'll update the other links on the forum threads. Thanks!

  • The link for SharePoint category in the TOC is not showing (I tried to fix this without success...)

  • At one point my changes overwrote yours although I think I compared versions before submitting my changes. It is possible I missed something.

  • Christopher and Naomi,

    Unfortunately there's a bug where a zero ("0") in the header will omit that header from the TOC! =^(

    It's on our list to fix it. The workaround is to update the "a name=" tag in the HTML to not include a zero in it. Looks like XAML Guy already fixed it. Thanks!

  • Added my name tag to easily find

  • It was Robert M who fixed the TOC problem
