Behold! It’s the June TechNet Guru Contest!
Your chance to get your name known, raise your profile, get credit where credit is due!
Yes my friends, this is your chance to get listed along-side some of the industry’s greatest community heroes!
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!
HOW TO WIN
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.
