2011 Scripting Games: All Links on One Page


2011 Scripting Games badge

The 2011 Scripting Games begin on April 4, 2011, and run through April 15, 2011. The Scripting Games are the premier learning event of the year for IT pros and others who want to master Windows PowerShell. For each of 10 events, you as a registered contestant have seven days to script a solution to a scenario-driven problem and post your code to an MVP-maintained script repository. A panel of internationally recognized judges scores each script you submit. And daily leaderboards and prize drawings help keep your interest high throughout the two-week international, online event.

Last year, people from more than 200 countries visited the Script Center during the Scripting Games. Because the scripts are written for real-world scenarios and problems, they are of immediate value to everyone, participants and spectators alike.
