Ok, I’m really excited about this one. Quest Software (my employer and sponsor of all PowerGUI development) has created a PowerGUI contest! Whether you are a newcomer to PowerShell, a seasoned PowerShell scripter or somewhere in between, why not experiment with all of the creative things you can do with PowerGUI and PowerShell and enter the PowerPack Challenge! All you need to do to enter is create and/or update one or more PowerPacks during the contest period (between July 1, 2008 and September 30, 2008). There are some great prizes to be won, as described on the PowerPack Challenge contest page!
So now that you know about the contest, what should you do next? Since the contest period doesn’t start until July 1, 2008, you have some time to prepare yourself for the contest. if you aren’t totally familiar with PowerPacks or how to create them, you can learn how to do that by watching the flash demo I created here. If you want to browse existing PowerPacks to get an idea what is already available, you can look in the PowerPack library here. Or if you are attending the IT Pro week of TechEd 2008, there are a lot of sessions, hands on labs, instructor led labs, and more with PowerShell content and you can learn more about PowerShell and PowerGUI by visiting the demo station in booth 1101.
And please, just like anything else I post on this blog, if you have questions don’t hesitate to ask.
Thanks and good luck with your contest entries!
