Peter Laker will be back later with the list of winners, but we have quite a few contributions for June for the judges to go through! See TechNet Guru Contributions - June 2013.

Which articles do you think the judges should pick? Leave a comment below!

 

BizTalk

The TechNet Guru June competition is announced in this BizTalk forum thread.
Here are the June contributions:

New category for June! BizTalk contributors came in late, but we have three different contributors this month with a solid showing!

 

SharePoint 2010

The TechNet Guru June competition is announced in this SharePoint General forum thread and in this SharePoint Development forum thread.

Here are the June contributions:

SharePoint takes the cake this month for the most contributions! Matthew Yarlett (our winner from June) is going to try to get a second medal in a row (two contributions this month), but the competition is steep! We also have two contributions from Sunny and Ashish, 3 from Mohammad, and 6 from our fellow Wiki Ninja author (and SharePoint Europe award winner), Gokan Ozcifci! That's some steep competition!

 

Small Basic

The TechNet Guru June competition is announced in this Small Basic forum thread.
Here are the June contributions:

Small Basic is another new category this month. Nonki almost dominated with 6 contributions (tied with Gokan), but then Jibba Jabba jumped in to give Nonki a little competition!  

  

SQL Server Analysis Services

The TechNet Guru June competition is announced in this SSAS forum thread.
Here are the June contributions:

It looks like Yogish is the contributor to this new category and will take the gold. But the judges will still need to decide which article.

 

SQL Server Integration Services

The TechNet Guru June competition is announced in this SSIS forum thread.
No June contributions:

  • none

So unfortunately, the community doesn't seem interested in this competition. We'll need to retire this category for July (unless an SSIS expert commits to authoring an article in July).

 

SQL Server Reporting Services/Power View

The TechNet Guru June competition is announced in this SSRS forum thread.
Here are the contributions:

SSRS is a new category for June. It looks like Tim is going to run the table for June with a lot of articles for the judges to pick from! Tim also contributed 6 articles for June (the same number as Gokan and Nonki).

 

Transact-SQL

The TechNet Guru June competition is announced in this T-SQL forum thread.
Here are the June contributions:

Naomi, our gold medal winner for June (with an impressive tie with two articles in first place), is back with four more contributions! But she has some solid competition with Kalman, Sathyanarrayanan (2 articles), and Johnny Bell (2 articles)!

   

Visual Basic

The TechNet Guru June competition is announced in this Visual Basic forum thread.
Here are the June contributions:

Our VB winner for May, Reed Kimble, looks to win the gold two months in a row! But one of our competitors is guaranteed the silver! =^)

 

Visual C#

The TechNet Guru June competition is announced in this Visual C# forum thread.
Here are the June contributions:

C# was the most-contributed-to category in May (with 8 contributions). But for June, Dan jumps in to (likely) win the competition! Well played, Dan! 

 

Windows Phone

The TechNet Guru June competition is announced in this Windows Phone Development forum thread.
Here are the June contributions:

Isenthil, our winner for May, has his competition cut out for him, going against Tiziano, Ken, and Lohith! 

 

Windows Store Apps

The TechNet Guru June competition is announced in this Windows Store app development forum thread.
Here are the June contributions:

Sachin dominates in this new category and looks to get his second gold medal (the first was for C# in May)! We'll need to decide if we want to remove the category for July and ask the contributors to post in C# or VB again (like we did in May). What do you think? 

  

WPF

The TechNet Guru June competition is announced in this WPF forum thread.
Here are the June contributions:

And finally, some WPF contributors jumped in toward the end of the month! I encouraged XAML guy to enter this competition (even though the competition is his idea). We'll get others to judge the contributions for this category. There's some nice choices that the judges will need to pick from! 

 

Overall

The Category with the most contributions:

  1. SharePoint 2010 - 20
  2. Transact-SQL - 9
  3. Small Basic - 7

The individuals with the most contributions (6 each):

  

 

So a hearty thank you goes out to all the contributors! You're helping make it far easier for people to find your fantastic content that you (likely) originally came up with while helping people in the forums! Thank you to all and good luck in the competition!
