Iron Scripter prequels: Puzzle 10 - A commentary

This is the commentary on the last Iron Scripter prequel puzzle: Iron Scripter Prequel Puzzle 10 - A commentary

Next weekend will mark the start of summit and you can work on the Iron Scripter preludes - 4 daily puzzles as a lead in to the main event on Thursday 12 April 2018. If you haven't chosen your faction yet you need to hurry

Iron Scripter Prequels: Puzzle 9 - A commentary

Here's my commentary for puzzle 9: Iron Scripter Prequel Puzzle 9 - A commentary

In this puzzle you were cleaning up the TEMP folder and the recycle bin plus working with scheduled tasks and/or scheduled jobs.

One more commentary to come - probably early next week rather than Sunday and then we're into the Summit and the main event.

Iron Scripter Preludes and Main Event: Rules and Info

Information is now available at IronScripter.us for the at-Summit events, and participants are advised to refresh themselves on the Rules.

Participants attending Summit should begin choosing their faction and getting to know their teammates in the faction-specific channels of the DevOps-Summit Slack team (open only to attendees and alumni).

Participants hoping to participate remotely may wish to start choosing a faction and finding a way to get in touch with them. The Faction Discussion may be a good way to do that.

Iron Scripter prequel: Puzzle 10

Activity on the Iron Scripter forum and Slack channels has reduced for the last few puzzles leading me to believe that I've been giving out too many challenges. I've decided that this will be the last prequel puzzle: Iron Scripter Prequel Puzzle 10

There won't be a puzzle 11.

Next week I'll publish the commentary for puzzle 9 and the week after that for puzzle 10 meaning you get 2 weeks for these last 2 puzzles.

Next year, if we repeat Iron Scripter and the prequels, we'll space the prequels out a bit more so that we don't overload you.

Details on the iron Scripter challenge itself will be published soon - until then enjoy this last prequel puzzle.
