IT Notes from the Powertoe – Tome Tanasovski

Scripting Games 2011

I have been honored again this year to be asked to judge the 2011 Scripting Games. If you are not aware of the games here’s a letter from The Scripting Guy, Ed Wilson where he describes the event in 234 words:

The 2011 Scripting Games begin on April 4, 2011 and run through April 15, 2011. What is the Scripting Games, you may ask? Well simply put, the Scripting Games are the premier learning event of the year for IT Pro’s and others who wish to master Windows PowerShell. Comprising 10 events, a registered contestant has seven days to create a solution to a scenario driven problem and post their code to a MVP maintained script repository for evaluation by a panel of internationally recognized judges. Daily leaderboards and prize drawings help to maintain the suspense throughout the two-week international event.

During the 2011 Scripting Games hundreds of contestants will submit thousands of scripts that will be reviewed by dozens of judges. Hundreds of thousands of spectators from all around the world will view the games themselves. Last year, participants from more than 100 countries participated in the Scripting Games. With an emphasis on real world scripting scenarios and problems, the scripts will be of immediate value to both the participants and to the spectators.

Preparation for the 2011 Scripting Games is already underway, with a learning guide, step-by-step tutorials, videos and other resources being generated on a daily basis. The 2011 Scripting Games all in one page is the portal for the games themselves. The 2010 Scripting Games all in one page is still available, as are the events from the 2009 Scripting Games.

I personally think this is a better 234 word description of the event:
