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 November, 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 November 2013 and must be in English. However, the original blog or forum content can be from before November. 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).

Who can come up with articles in DB section for November month
Where I can see the winners for October month.
Hi HimanshuSharma ,
Yet to be announced , Watch out here - blogs.technet.com/.../wikininjas or
Winners are here: blogs.technet.com/.../technet-guru-awards-october-2013.aspx
Himanshu, looks like you got very close. Very tough competition for T-SQL in October. Your article was great, and it was very close in the running. You should contribute again for November. There are no articles in T-SQL for November yet. I'm sure there will be a few, though, so you'd have some competition.
Shanky, just Uwe so far.
Ed, will any of the virtualization solutions be added to the Guru contribution? (App-V, Hyper-V, Remote Desktop Services)
Danny, do you have a link to the forums? I'm curious how active their forums are.
Aaahhggg! The SharePoint category has been outdone by Biztalk and the Windows Server categories! Actually, Mr X has has written as many articles just himself! Well done all!
