Who are you, where are you, and what do you do? What are your specialty technologies?

Image: It is me! :)  

I was born in Balikesir and living in the beautiful city of izmir in Turkey. I have been in the sector approximately for 10 years, and for a long time I have been a part of IT projects in the banking sector. Currently I am working in a corporate firm as a System Manager, and in this position I have managed various projects in the System Center. I have been trying to explain my experience with the articles I have published. From now on I will be sharing my experience via Technet Wiki. Additionally, you can follow me with the following links: www.davudows.com and www.davuteren.com.tr

My special technology is Active Directory and System Center Family.


What are your big projects right now?

I completed a big deployment project with SCCM in my company for which I was recently awarded. Nowadays, I have been preparing for an MCT certification. I, together with my team, wrote an e-book about Microsoft Infrastructure Management and about System Center Service Manager (SCSM 2012), (I improve it, day one day.)  I have also been preparing to write a new e-book about System Center Configuration Manager. And also planning to give a seminar in end of july 2014 about System Center with my team friends. Really, I love System Center Family.

What do you do with TechNet Wiki, and how does that fit into the rest of your job?

Generally I spend most of my time in TechNet Wiki and in forums and blogs.

On what Wiki articles do you spend most of your time?

Nowadays, I spend most of my time with System Center Survival Guide and Active Directory Audit Powershell Scripts.

What are your favorite Wiki articles you’ve contributed?

My favorite article is TechNet Wiki Turkish Ninjas Guide Microsoft Infrastructure Management.


What are your top 5 favorite Wiki articles?

This is not including my own articles: 

Windows 2012 R2: Active Directory Best Practices for SharePoint Use

Active Directory Services Audit - Document references

Active Directory: PowerShell AD Module Properties

T-SQL: Relational Division

How to Extract Data in XML to Meet the Requirements of a Schema



What could we do differently on TechNet Wiki?

I wish Technet wiki had a page for event id. On this page people can search event id and try to resolve their problems with the help of other peoples’ past experiences about the same event id.

Who has impressed you in the Wiki community?

Absolutely Gokan Ozcifci and Ed Price,




Thanks, Davut! It's great to have you part of the TAT family, and we're super excited to have you join us here, as an author on the Wiki Ninjas English blog!

It's also good to see you contributing in System Center! We just added System Center as a TechNet Guru category, so perhaps you can translate one of your articles into English and then we'll have a few of us review the English grammar for you. Then we can enter it (or more than one) into the TechNet Guru System Center category for February. =^)


Everybody, please join me in thanking Davut for all his contributions to our community and please welcome him to the English Wiki Ninjas bloggers!
