TechNet Guru Contributions for October 2013

TechNet Guru Contributions for October 2013

 

 

Introduction


October's competition has now closed.
Submissions for November should go here.

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.


This is a TechNet Wiki awards program, so we only want WIKI LINKS for articles created in October, 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 October 2013 and must be in English. However, the original blog or forum content can be from before October. 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


1) Create a new TechNet article

YOU CAN COPY YOUR CONTRIBUTION FROM MSDN/TECHNET FORUMS OVER TO TECHNET WIKI (IN October) TO QUALIFY FOR THESE AWARDS. You can also create a new article not related to your forums contributions.

A) Log into TechNet/MSDN with your Microsoft credentials

B) Add your content as an article to TechNet Wiki: http://social.technet.microsoft.com/wiki/contents/articles/add.aspx

If you are copying and pasting your MSDN/TechNet forum solutions over to TechNet Wiki, please give some introduction to the problem, make sure your steps are clear, and then link to the original forum post. You can also paste in your blog posts (rather than forum content).

2) Tell us about it

To add a link to your article:

A) Log into TechNet with your Microsoft credentials

B) Click the "Edit" tab, above this article title, and copy in the URL to your TechNet Wiki article into the appropriate section.
 

3) When and how we announce the winners


The competition closes at midnight PST. Any entries added to the page after that will not qualify. We then load all the entries into a voting website and contact all the judges. We usually give the judges a week or two to get their votes in, as these are very busy people. This means it could be up to the middle of the next month before we post the results. results are posted in this TechNet Ninja blog, and then proliferated out to the forums over the next day or so.

  • Good luck everyone!

  • Maheshkumar S Tiwari edited Original. Comment: Added entry in BizTalk Section

  • Hello XAML guy ,

    Last month Ed proposed an idea of merging SSAS,SSRS & SSIS categories as SQL BI , does it needs to be merged for this month ??

  • Ed Price - MSFT edited Revision 3. Comment: Updating the links...

  • Sathya, yes, XAML guy will do that. And we also hope to merge Windows Phone and App development. I'd like to see a Windows Server category and a Windows Azure category.

  • I've done a quick pass to fix the categories. I'll update all the forum links hopefully tonight. Thanks for the reminder.

  • what about "asp.net" (MVC / WebForm) & "windows forms"? don't you want to ad those tech?

    * I'm pretty sure that these technologies much more used then WPF. Maybe it is enough to separate the categories by the target rather than the technology. After all there are several dozens of technologies. For example separate "windows development"(winform, wpf, Phone, Store...)  with "web development" (mvc, webform, silverlight...)?

  • The categories look cleaner. Thanks for combining!

    XAML guy, did you ever announce in Win Server and Win Azure? I'll check and do so.

    Thanks!

  • pituach,

    They actually use a different Forum site because ASP is Open Source. So we could, but I think it might be rough to get it to the community, pinned in a forum over there, and get enough of the community to contribute. I also need to check to see if they have a dedicated Wiki over there or something else going on.

    Thanks!
