Council Spotlight: Calling All Wise People! Microsoft TechNet Wiki Gurus Needed! Apply Within! No One Turned Away!


April fools out of the way, now let’s find an April genius!

The name “April” is derived from the Latin verb “aperire“, meaning “to open” in reference to being the season when trees & flowers start to “open”.

And I have to say, judging from the quality of contributions in recent months, I can’t wait to OPEN and read this month’s community gold!

Things are hotting up in TechNet, and the Wiki has become a shining example of what the community has to offer.

If you can find the time to enrich us with your latest revelations, or some fascinating facts, then not only will you build up a profile and name for yourself within the gaze of Microsoft’s very own glitterati, but you will be adding pages to the most respected source for Microsoft knowledge base articles. This could not only boost your career, but would benefit generations to come!

So don’t be an April fool. Please realise the potential of this platform, realise where we are going, and join us in growing this community, learning more about you, and opening the minds of others!

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 favoritetechnology will help us learn the active members in each community.

Feel free to ask any questions below.

  1. Kamlesh, it seems that the link ‘interviewed for your greatness’ needs to be corrected.

    1. I updated the link to go to the Wiki article. That article provides a nice list of all the interviews:

      http://social.technet.microsoft.com/wiki/contents/articles/17840.interview-with-a-wiki-ninja.aspx

      Thanks!

    1. Great point. The content is located on GitHub, and there’s now an editor that lets you go in and submit changes. I believe the changes have to be validated.

      So two key differences for the Wiki:
      1. It’s your content.
      2. No validation/bar. Although we’ll push you toward excellence, nobody is going to refuse your content. There is no chance that you’re wasting your time. Even if the article isn’t perfect, it’s out there, and it’s likely still very valuable. It’s going to help someone. And that is of great value!

  2. Big thanks to Kamlesh for driving this promotion!
