Ninja Award Most Updated Article Award  
Largest amount of updated content in a single article

 

The article to have the most change this week was new arrival, Migrating BizTalk Server maps to Windows Azure BizTalk Services (WABS) maps, by Sandro Pereira

This week's reviser was Sandro Pereira,

This is an entry by Sandro for the February Guru Competition, and another fine piece of work it is to, from somewhat of a legend in the BizTalk chronicles.

Good luck Sandro, thanks for giving us such detailed awesomeness!

Also in the news, the March competition page has just been released!

Let's see who's first to contribute!

 

Ninja Award Longest Article Award  
Biggest article updated this week

 

This week's largest document to get some attention is Hybrid Cloud Infrastructure Design Considerations, by Thomas W Shinder – MSFT

This week's reviser was Craig Lussier,

This is just a colossal tome of knowledge from Thomas and always worth a mention.

This is just full of eye popping and mind expanding stuff, it would enrich the most experienced cloud user developers with at least one more thing they never knew they didn't know. 

 

Ninja Award Most Revised Article Award  
Article with the most revisions in a week

 

This week's most fiddled with article is The Man Behind TechNet Wiki, by XAML guyJayakumaur (JK)Ed Price – MSFTSteef-Jan WiggersRichard MuellerDurval RamosNaomi NBruno Lewin – MSFTPeter Geelen – MSFTDavut EREN – TATCraig Lussier & Margriet Bruggeman. It was revised 69 times last week.

This week, the TechNet bloggers and councilors came together in an outpouring of gushy love for the big man that is Ed Price.

When we heard it was his birthday, we colluded behind darkened doorways and shady chat rooms, to concoct a birthday page for the man that we all agree drives TechNet Wiki to new heights!

Happy Birthday again Ed.

Ninja Award Most Popular Article Award  
Collaboration is the name of the game!

 

The article to be updated by the most people this week is TechNet Guru Contributions for February, by XAML guy

Ninja Award Ninja Edit Award  
A ninja needs lightning fast reactions!

 

Below is a list of this week's fastest ninja edits. That's an edit to an article after another person

Wow, some great activity this week, with most new content based around the Guru competition and most activity based around Ed's secret birthday surprise.

It was heart warming to see how quickly the bloggers and councilors came together with birthday messages for Ed.

It is also amazing to see how many top quality professionals are gravitating to the Wiki through the Guru awards.

I am very proud and honoured to get to know you all.

 

Best regards,
Pete Laker

  1. Thanks for the birthday surprise! I actually was out of it that day with back to back meetings, so I didn’t even notice!

    Thank you, everyone!

  2. Congrats to Benoit, Gokan, and Alan for some great contributions!

  3. Saeid Hasani says:

    Happy Birthday Ed! 🙂 … Thanks Pete for informing this event! … Congrats Benoit! you are far far away at top of the list!

  4. Durval Ramos says:

    Congrats to all, especially for Benoit, Gokan and Craig, improving the content in our Community.
    Congratulations also to Alan, Hezequias and Yelenah_ creating new articles in the TNWiki and TNWiki Brazil.

  5. Durval Ramos says:

    Ed, we are all happy that you liked this article. We were counting minutes until you read the article and there was always someone helping during the little time left, you can see the “Edit Ninja Award” =^D

  6. Durval, yes, that’s really cool and it’s very encouraging! Thank you!

  7. Pete Laker says:

    A well deserved fella indeed!

  8. Pete Laker says:

    It is surprising we didn’t have any VB entries for last month’s Guru competition.

  9. Pete Laker says:

    February entries are now with all the judges at Microsoft and the TechNet WIki Council. We should have results ready by about mid month. They’re a busy bunch, they need a couple of weeks to judge, or return from trips.

  10. Congrats to all contributors!

  11. Pete Laker says:

    Yes, Ninja Edit Award says it all this week 🙂

  12. Durval Ramos says:

    XAML guy, I believe the trend is to reduce the interest on VB and VB.Net, this because new developers don’t want to learn about this language and only seek information when it’s necessary make to maintenance in legacy applications, but I don’t see this as a problem.

  13. Durval Ramos says:

    Unprejudiced, I programmed for many years in VB (my first job with VB4 32-bit) and I’m very grateful for everything that I learned from this language.

  14. Recep YUKSEL says:

    Congrats to all members. Thank you very much.

  15. Congratulations!!! good job thanks
