WIKI LIFE CHALLENGE: Can you add one article to a portal?


This is a blog post. And you're reading it.

Do you know TechNet Wiki?

It's this thing:


On the front page, there are 8 portals.

Here are two of them:

Wiki: Technologies Portal

Wiki: Development Portal


Well, you know how we've had all those great Guru articles lately? Here are a bunch of them:

The Microsoft TechNet Guru Awards! (April 2015)

The Microsoft TechNet Guru Awards! (March 2015)

The Microsoft TechNet Guru Awards! (February 2015)

The Microsoft TechNet Guru Awards! (January 2015)

The Microsoft TechNet Guru Awards! (December 2014)

The Microsoft TechNet Guru Awards! (November 2014)


Wouldn't it be great if everybody took a moment to find their favorite recent TechNet Guru article and add it to a Portal?

Well that's your challenge!


See if you can add one article onto one portal! 


If the article is already on that portal, then there might be another applicable portal that it's not on yet. Any portal.

Just go grab your favorite article from one of the Guru winners (links above), and pick a portal to add it to!

Here are all the portals:

Portal of TechNet Wiki Portals


Leave a comment when you complete the challenge and let us know what you did! I'll do it too!


Thank you everyone, for a small step to helping more people read a great article!

    Added all the Azure Guru articles from Nov 2014 to Apr 2015 to the cloud portal.

  7. Hi Ed,
    Thanks for bringing this to our attention. I wasn’t aware of it. I’m happy to jump in and make the updates. So far I have updated the following-
    1) Visio portal -Added links to 2 articles there.
    2) SharePoint 2013 Server Portal – Added links to 7 articles there.
    As Saeid said, I’ll add my future article’s there as well.

  8. Chervine – thanks for updating the cloud portal. I had already added my two articles there so thanks for adding all the rest.

    Ed – I recently found the TechNet Guru Contributions – Azure page and updated the medal winners on there from Nov 2014 to Apr 2015. All the other pages need updating too. Perhaps a challenge for the future?

  9. Ken, yes, that’s a great idea!

  10. Thank you Dan! Those updates help a lot!
