Let's get to the interview!
Who are you, where you are and what you do?

I am Nicolas BONNET. I live near Aix en Provence (France). I am a computer consultant for SSII Marseillaise and I'm an MVP Expert in Windows IT Pro. I am working with clients for projects in Active Directory, Server Administration, and the deployment of desktop or mobility projects (Intune).


What are your specialty technologies?

I have expertise in several areas. The server part, my expertise concerning Active Directory (administration, support, migration or upgrade) ,and the administration of the other server roles (print server, file, WSUS,...). I have a second expertise with the deployment of workstations (SCCM and MDT). Finally my last expertise concerns Intune mobility.



How did you learn about TechNet Wiki?

After having written numerous articles on the wiki and be interviewed many times on the forums, someone already present from the TechNet Wiki team put me in contact with Ed Price, who gave me access to the Technet Wiki Ninja blog.



What was your first collaboration on TechNet Wiki?

My first collaboration was writing the blog posts on the TechNet Wiki Ninja FR blog!

What are your major projects now?

I wish to continue like it's the first time I started! Eventually I want to lead seminars and make training videos.


What do you do with the TechNet Wiki and how does it integrate into your work?

TechNet Wiki allows me to transfer acquired skills. After I face a technical problem with a client, I put the solution I found on TechNet Wiki.


What interests you the most about the TechNet Wiki?

The transfer of skills is the point that keeps me interested in TechNet Wiki.

Among the articles that you have contributed to the TechNet Wiki community, which is your favorite?

The article concerning the problem of IIS with WSUS 3.0 is the one I prefer:

What impressed you about the Wiki community, and why?

Ed Price is someone who impresses me because in addition to his involvement and his huge work in his community, he oversees all of the other communities. He is also available when you need him.
