I am a positive thinker. As per my view nothing is impossible, if anyone try and do hard-work he/she can achieve anything. I love challenges and believe in innovative ideas/work. With this thought, I have written few innovative articles.

4. What do you do with TechNet Wiki, and how does that fit into the rest of your job?
First I would like to thank the TechNet Wiki team for creating this great platform. The reason for thanking them is:
I feel TechNet Wiki is making a live platform where we can share our Knowledge and readers can enjoy the benefit of asking their questions by posting comment on articles.
TechNet Wiki Encouraging Authors by allowing authors themselves to nominate their article for TechNet Guru Monthly Contributions and selecting best 3 articles category wise.

TechNet Wiki has lots of very good Authors who are doing their best for contributing for the community. I have seen many good articles which helps me lot .There are few Authors whose articles impress me a lot they are Chervine, Emiliano Musso , Richard Mueller , Carmelo La Monica and many others.
I am still a learner, there is lots of things need to be learn on Microsoft Technology. I always read new and old articles from TechNet Wiki which makes me fresh and give me more ideas to write better articles for community.
I started contributing to the Visual Studio Gallery last year. Here is the link.

6. Do you have any tips for new Wiki authors?
For new Authors I would like to say, keep on contributing without expecting anything. Sharing our knowledge with others is a great art. Share your thoughts with easy steps so that fresher’s and others can get more benefit. Don’t worry about any negative comments, take all the negative as positive and focus on how to make things better. Your each contribution is more valuable, which will stands for years and years and day by day more and more people will get benefit from that.
I personally feel Source Code is very important for learners. I would like to kindly request all the authors to add source code and explain your work step by step from A to Z .Starting from how to create the project till how to run the project. It will be more helpful for everyone especially for fresher’s, If we give step by step explanation along with the source code. Thank u all.
