Automating the world one-liner at a time…
The 2009 Summer Scripting Games have officially begun. For the last few days the Scripting Guys have been revealing the events one day at a time. For more information on the events, you can refer to this post from ScriptingGuys. This year’s scripting games are partnered with the Microsoft PowerShell MVP’s at PoshCode.org. The new PoshCode allows you to review other people's scripts, to vote on the scripts you think are best, and to modify other people's submissions and submit the changes you like. This is how most scripters work. They look for scripts, find something they think is useful, and modify it. The same three steps are allowed in this year's scripting games. Here are the details for logging onto the PoshCode site and the procedure for submitting scripts. The Competitor's Pack is available from the Microsoft Download site.
Two resources will prove vital to you during the Scripting Games. The first is a special Scripting Games Forum, and the second is the Scripting Guys Twitter page. The Scripting Games Forum is where you can ask questions about the different events, report issues, and express concerns. Twitter is where you will get real-time, up-to-the-second status information about the Scripting Games and all things related to the Script Center.
