And below are the results for the TechNet Guru Awards, July 2013 !!!!
The TechNet Guru Awards celebrate the technical articles on TechNet, contributed from valued wiki authors like YOU!
Each month, the contributions are scored by a panel of judges, and the winners of each category are showered with love and attention from all corners of TechNet.
See the links at the bottom, to find out more about the competition and how to enter.
We have picked the top three highest scored contributions for each category to bestow our awards upon.
The awards are in gold, silver and bronze, the gold obviously being the top winner of the category.
The last column is a few of the comments judges made during the judging process.
In some cases, we have not obtained permission to use the judges names, so they have been reduced to initials.
My fellow wiki ninjas will be digging deeper into some of these articles in this blog series, so watch out for those.
A big thank you also to the other authors who did not make the top three of each category.
Some articles only just missed out, so we may be returning to discuss those too, in future blogs.
We had five entries in BizTalk for July, and all were very nice quality. SAAkhlaq just missed the medals this month, but his Loop for a Specific Number of Times using Scripting Functiod in BizTalk Map article is well worth a mention and a look.
We had twelve entries for this category in July, a fantastic show! Thanks go to Ashish Gupta, Julie Boudro, Mohammad Nizamuddin, Jesper Arnecke & Daniel Christian, who all just missed out on medals this month.
A shame we only had one entry for Small Basic for July. Let's hope we can drum up some more interest from the SB community for August!
Four entries for this category, but only three entrants, who all won a well deserved medal. Paul's article especially filled the ticket!
Two great articles for this category, and hopefully something for us to build on. Thanks to both entrants, keep the articles coming!
Naomi holding up the T-SQL category for July, thanks Naomi. This should be a category many disciplines can contribute to, so maybe August will pick up. Thanks nonetheless to Naomi for some great contributions!
Five articles, from three entrants, all who have won an award for July. Some great articles too! Thanks again folks, hopefully see you all in with a chance of winning more for August!
Despite four entrants for this category, Jaliya won all three awards for July! We may limit the number of awards per month in future results as we still figure out the perfect format for these awards. But for now, congratulations go to Jaliya for an outstanding collection of contributions! Love also goes to Karl Mitschke, chilberto & Mohammad Nizamuddin for their entries. Maybe you'll have a better chance in future months.
Congratulations to Senthil for taking Gold, and to Ken and Lohith for Silver and Bronze. Some great subjects covered in July. Let's hope August is even better!
Nine great articles contributed for July, thanks to everyone in the Windows Store category. Sachin S also contributed FOUR great articles for July and narrowly missed a medal. Hopefully we will see more from all these players in August?
Only three entries and all three are winners for July. WPF is a popular technology, so hopefully we will see more entrants soon.
Just the two entries, so Bronze goes unclaimed this month. Great work however from the two we received.
Congratulations to these three. Some great knowledge shared with the community. Mohammad Nizamuddin just missed out on a medal for July, so hopefully we'll see him return and try again for August!
A great big thanks to EVERYONE who contributed an article to last month's competition.
Hopefully we will see you ALL again in this month's listings?
If you have not yet contributed an article for this month, and you think you can produce a more useful, clever and better produced wiki article than the winners above, here's your chance! :D
Best regards,Pete Laker
