Quest Software’s PowerPack Challenge’09
OK pal – you think you got what it takes to be the big boss of scripting? Give it your best shot in Quest Software’s PowerPack Challenge.
Experience for yourself what all the hype is about. Whether you are new to PowerShell and want to learn more, or are you an early adopter who is passionate about POSH, come and take the PowerPack Challenge.
Quest Software is sponsoring this contest where you can test your PowerShell scripting skills and get paid. Just create some cool PowerShell scripts using Quest’s PowerGUI, and then post them to our site. You’ll get a score and our celebrity judges will weigh in as well. Winners can receive up to $1,000 USD to spend on Amazon.com.
Here’s How It’s Gonna Go Down:
To qualify for an award your submission must be posted by 11:59 PM PDT 15 November 2009
The Most Active Contestant will be determined by identifying the person who accumulated the highest point value for all valid PowerPacks submitted by this person during the contest. The more packs you pound out the more points you pile up. The Second Most Active Contestant will be the person who accumulated the second highest sum of point values for all of the valid PowerPacks submitted by this person during the contest. A PowerPack is posted on the powergui.org library that calculates the score. This is the official scoring methodology.
Candidates for The Best PowerPack will be selected from the ten (10) highest point value entries during the contest. A Promotion Judging Panel will judge the 10 entries by two additional criteria. The Panel will award up to ten (10) points for the complexity of the PowerPack and up to ten (10) points for the business value of the PowerPack (for a maximum additional score of 20). This is where your scripting muscle can get you paid.
A big thanks goes to our panel of PowerShell Celebrity Judges:
