First I like to thank other authors, who shared their articles in social media. I come up with such articles and I saw the announcement of TechNet Guru Competition happenings. I was eager join the competition, so I started to learn, write and share the Microsoft Technology stuffs in the TechNet platform.
As I mentioned earlier, I am a technology enthusiastic. Microsoft TechNet is really helpful to learn latest buzz and innovative solution and provide real world example shared by others and also share our own ideas with others.

I would like to thank you all the authors, supporters for making my articles to reach more readers in the world.
Do you have any tips for new Wiki authors?
For new authors, I would like to suggest few things. You should have a passion to learn new things and sharing knowledge to others. This makes them to get involved and research more on the technical concepts.
As a Chinese proverb says,
I hear. I forget.
I see. I remember.
I do, I understand.
Newbies should implement their own ideas for understanding the concepts. This will make a way for them to achieve in their field. As an author I would suggest new authors to practicing the guidelines tech net community standards when writing articles. They can follow few of the document styles:
- Introduction to the subject
- Implementing the ideas or solution
- Procedures for developing a sample code (This may differ based in the domain you are)
- Code snippets
- Conclusion &
- Reference section
Finally, you can share the articles on social medias such as Facebook, LinkedIn and twitter. It will be impact to reach more readers. You can reach me at:
