Council Spotlight: Be Our July TechNet Guru! Supply a Sizzling "Sunny Season" Scoop!

On Thursdays, we highlight a project being run by the TechNet Wiki Community Council, and today we're featuring the TechNet Guru competition!

You have 8 more days to enter the July competition!


Up here in the Northern Hemisphere, things are hotting up!

And in TechNet Guru land, hot is cool!

So once again, we ask you for your sizzling "Sunny Season" scoop.

Your blazing and boiling blurb, and your hot how-to's!

Step up Gurus and please provide us some engaging essays and exciting expositions!

Now is the season for your fascinating feature, your classic composition, or your tasty treatise!

Let the community warm to your write-up, industrial item, professional passage or specialized story.

We need high-tech high hitters!

It is your time in the sun my friends!

Enjoy it while it lasts! (the sun that is)

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.

  1. Ed & Peter – thanks for writing this. I have re-tweeted the post to my followers to try and encourage more writers.

  2. "Hotting up" – XAML guy, is that a phrase in the UK?

    Because here in the US we use the proper English… "Heating up"


  3. Andy ONeill says:

    I’m sure you could turn that into a fascinating TnWiki article Ed.
    The technical content is kind of tricky but I’m sure you can think of something to tag on the end and save it. ;^)
    Hey.. maybe Wiki: UK vs American English.

  4. Andy ONeill says:

    Oh dear.
    Someone’s broke the competition page.
    I’ll take a run at fixing it.

  5. Andy, ha! Maybe it’s a Small Basic or VB program that runs a trivia game to see whether you use UK or US terms? =^)

    Looks like you fixed the Wiki article. It looks good. Thanks!

    And if it ever gets real bad, the Revert button is pretty handy.

  6. Saeid Hasani says:

    Thanks Ed and Pete for posting the this one! Although, we have started it earlier! 😉

  7. Saeid, yeah, I was a little late on this one. =^)
