The 2011 Scripting Games start on April 4th.

This year is the first year that all the scripts must be in PowerShell.

If you are not familiar with the Scripting Games, they are two weeks of real world inspired challenges that allow you to demonstrate your scripting chops.  Every day a new challenge (or event) is revealed.  There are two categories, Beginner and Expert, so there are challenges for everyone, no matter how experienced.

After each event is revealed, competitors can submit their scripts to the Scripting Games PoshCode repository, where an internationally recognized judges will score every submission (guess what.. I’m a judge this year..).  After the event closes, an “Expert Solution” will be provided as a sample of the event could be solved, including an explanation on how they got there.

If you are new to scripting, this is a great way to get started, no pressure, with real examples and solutions from recognized experts.

If you really want to find out more about how the even runs, take a look at last year’s events and solutions..

This is a great opportunity to flex your scripting might or start building your scripting muscles..

Hope to see you there!
