Welcome to Wiki Life Wednesday! For this Wiki Life, I'm bringing back one of my favorite series to blog about: social synergy.
First, I want to say that this topic isn't new. For years, we've been preaching the value of using MSDN and TechNet Gallery in conjunction with TechNet Wiki! In fact, this blog post is over 3 years old: Wiki Life: Should I use the Gallery or TechNet Wiki?
And there's no real reason to repeat all that, because it's still the same! All the arguments are still golden!
Read all about it here:
- Wiki Life: Should I use the Gallery or TechNet Wiki?
- Synergy between the TechNet Wiki and TechNet Gallery
- Community Win: Social Synergy across TechNet Forums, TechNet Wiki, TechNet Gallery, TechNet Wiki again, and now TechNet Blogs
- Using TechNet Wiki as Documentation Platform for CodePlex
So then what is today's blog about?
Well, thanks to XAML guy's amazing-tastic monthly TechNet Guru contest, we've had a lot of great articles posted on TechNet Wiki in the last year and a half, and those articles have had a LOT of code in them! And that was a great place for us to recommend best practices of putting your larger code snippets and samples up on the Gallery!
In other words, when we wrote those blogs above, we were writing about WHAT WE WANTED TO HAPPEN!
We weren't writing about what was happening.
But times have changed!
And now, I present to you a list of all the AMAZING articles from our wonderful community that have synergized with MSDN and TechNet Gallery!
Check them out and see the clever ways they link to the Gallery items!
And if you're writing up code snippets, samples, or even tools to accompany your TechNet Wiki articles, then I recommend putting them on the MSDN or TechNet Gallery and linking to them from your Wiki article!
For example, when you write a Wiki article, you want to break up your code a lot and explain it all, so that people can follow along! But you also want to have the code available as a single unit that they can download or copy from. That's where the Gallery item comes into play. It's the best of both worlds, and as the articles mention above (you did read them, right?), YOU BUILD TWO SOURCES OF COMMUNITY, RECOGNITION POINTS, and ACHIEVEMENT MEDALS instead of just one!
What could be better than that?
And so with one further ado...
Here are your wonderful TechNet Wiki articles that include links to Gallery Items (MSDN Gallery, TechNet Gallery, CodePlex, or GitHub):
