The scripting games took place from 26th of April to May 7.
Although I sometimes struggled to get the scripts submitted on time,I really need to start working on my time management skills :), it was a lot of fun.
This is actually the first time I participated in this event and I was a awesome experience!
The community participating was all around twitter and the forums, any questions asked where rapidly answered,… etc.
I also liked the idea that multiple judges grated the scripts submitted. As there are several approaches you can tackle a problem, your vision might not always be the most efficient.
This actually brings me to the only drawback of the 2010 Scripting Games. If a second opinion would result in a downgrade of your script, it’s useful to have the ‘why’ communicated.
The greatest advantage of participating really comes down to one thing: I learned a lot.
The events were challenging and forced me to start exploring new items (like remoting, winforms/WPF,…), searching for useful information and so on.
Powershell is not about reading a book but getting your hands dirty and the 2010 Scripting Games provided that opportunity whether you’re a novice or advanced scripter.
Anyway, all things need improvement but already now this experience was top of the bill!
See you all again next year!
