And below are the results for the TechNet Guru Awards, September 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 (5 per category, 2-3 in each are MS experts), 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 just 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.
PLEASE ALSO NOTE...
A few entries were missed from the voting, for technical reasons, but they will be carried over to this month (October). Our apologies to those that were affected.
Congratulations to all three above. It's great to see our very own Ninja Blogger, true guru and BizTalk demi-god Steef-Jan leading the charts this month! Special thanks also to runner up Maheshkumar S Tiwari, better luck next month!
Congratulations to Matt for winning gold AND bronze. Special thanks also to nunespascal, Daniel Christian & Nilesh Jain for their superb entries. Please continue to compete, as you only just missed out. The judges decision is final, however we may be changing the rules soon so people only win one (their highest) award, so hopefully we see you in the medals next month!
Nonki deserves silver and bronze, as there were only three entries last month! Congrats to Timo for heading the medals with a superb winning article! C'mon Small Basic folks, lets see your code!!!
Three entries, three winners! Great stuff too, thank you for these excellent contributions, we all learn from you.
Wow, all three medals for SathyanarrayananS!! Also a special thanks to Yogish Bhat for his noble contribution. That's just the result from the voting tool, the way it currently works. Please keep contributing, as you may get more chances in future votes.
Some outstanding pieces above, really worth a read. Thank you all so very much for your time and generosity in sharing these with the SQL community. Also a big thanks to SathyanarrayananS & DIEGOCTN who JUST missed out in the month's votes. It was very close as we had some supurb work from everyone in the SQL category in September.
Only two entrants with three entries in total for September :(
Still, what pure gold we got! Thanks to both John and Paul. Lovin' your work guys!!
Three entrants for September, with six articles between them, and all three get a mention in the medals, which is nice to see.
Great work folks, thanks for your continued contributions, you deserve all the love we bestow upon you over the coming months :D
Three entries, three new gurus. All entries were well worth the read, we are very lucky to have your wisdom bestowed upon us. Please keep up the great work, as you've certainly got our attention!
Thomas and Jordan are our honourable winners for September.
We may be setting a quality/content bar for medals very soon. Congratulations to all the winners!
Amazing contributions from two regular gurus, thanks to both of you for keeping this category going.
Hang in there till the rest of the community catches up!
Personally, I missed the deadline, so couldn't contribute for September D:
Some great contributions here, thank you to all three of you. FIM looks like it will grow into a very interesting category.
Only the two entries for this category, but both deserved winners, thanks to both of you for entering articles in this category and looking forward to seeing if anyone else has anything to offer in the coming months.
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 create a more useful, clever and better presented wiki article than the winners above, here's your chance! :D
Best regards,Pete Laker
