2014 Winter Scripting Games: The Event Authors

We’re now announcing the authors and scenario names for our four (plus on practice) events in the upcoming 2014 Winter Games!

  • Our Practice Event was authored by MVP Richard Siddaway, who is also serving as Games Master for these Games.
  • Event 1 is entitled Pairs, and was authored by none other than Microsoft Scripting Guy Ed Wilson.
  • Event 2, entitled Security Footprint, will be brought to you by Windows PowerShell team member Lee Holmes.
  • Event 3, entitled Acl, Cacl, Toil and Trouble was created by MVP Jeff Wouters.
  • Event 4, entitled Monitoring Support, was also authored by Richard Siddaway.

As you can see, we have a huge variety, including a great deal of international support, in this year’s events. I can promise you that they’re complex. You will absolutely need the assistance of a team member or two to chug through these, and the scenarios definitely encourage modular development, meaning you can potentially divvy up the work in order to get it all done in the week allowed. Frankly, whether you win or not, a high score in this year’s Games really points to you being a strong PowerShell scripter and team player!

PhillyPoSH – May, 2nd 2013

Please join us Thursday, May 2nd where Jeff Wouters will be presenting on his chapter from PowerShell Deep Dives book: Avoiding the pipeline (aka using the pipeline more efficiently). Jeff will also cover improving the PowerShell learning curve, and how to improve teaching it.

Here’s a little bit about Jeff:

Jeff Wouters (B ICT, MCITP, MCSA, MCSE) is a freelance Technical Consultant from The Netherlands with a main focus on high availability and automation using Microsoft and Citrix products by using technologies such as virtualization, redundancy, clustering, and replication. He also has a great passion for Windows PowerShell and is a founding member of the Dutch PowerShell User Group in 2012.

You can find Jeff on social media (Twitter @JeffWouters | Facebook @JeffWouters | LinkedIn @JeffWouters) and at his blog. He speaks and blogs mainly about Windows PowerShell and virtualization, but every now and then something else slips in that piques his interest.

Jeff is also a contributing author for a book project where 30+ authors from all over the world work together to create a Windows PowerShell deep-dive book that will be published in 2013.
