Calling all Microsoft Technology fans! Your chance to win love and glory! Be our November TechNet Guru!

You cannot vote on your own post

November has been designated National Novel Writing Month and National Blog Posting Month.

But we don't want that! We want a professional wiki article!

TechNet Wiki provides anyone the chance to contribute Microsoft technology related content to the community!

And we'll love it, and tweak it, and show the world!

Everyone has an equal chance of becoming our TechNet technology Guru, every month.

Separate teams of judges (6-8 per category) read every article submitted.

Some of the most influential members of Microsoft in your favourite technologies contribute their judging time to this competition.

TechNet Guru awards also help to promote your progress within the community... and its inner circles.

These competitions also help towards real awards, even MVP recognition!

All you have to do is add an article to TechNet Wiki from your own specialist field. Something that fits into one of the categories listed on the submissions page. Copy in your own blog posts, a forum solution, a white paper, or just something you had to solve for your own day's work today.

Drop us some nifty knowledge, or superb snippets, and become MICROSOFT TECHNOLOGY GURU OF THE MONTH!

This is an official Microsoft TechNet recognition, where people such as yourselves can truly get noticed!


1) Please copy over your Microsoft technical solutions and revelations to TechNet Wiki.

2) Add a link to it on THIS WIKI COMPETITION 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.

If you win, we will sing your praises in blogs and forums, similar to the weekly contributor awards. Once "on our radar" and making your mark, you will probably be interviewed for your greatness, and maybe eventually even invited into other inner TechNet/MSDN circles!

Winning this award in your favoured technology will help us learn the active members in each community.

Feel free to ask any questions below.

Thanks in advance!
