scriptingdudeThe 2011 Scripting Games begin on April 4, 2011, and run through April 15, 2011. The Scripting Games are the premier learning event of the year for IT pros and others who want to master Windows PowerShell. For each of 10 events, registered contestants have seven days to script a solution to a scenario-driven problem and post their code to an MVP-maintained script repository. A panel of internationally recognized judges scores each submitted script. And daily leaderboards and prize drawings help keep interest high throughout the two-week international, online event.

Last year, people from more than 200 countries visited the Script Center during the Games. Interest is so high because the scripts are written for real-world scenarios and problems, and they are of immediate value to participants and spectators alike.

Preparations for the 2011 Scripting Games are well underway, with step-by-step tutorials, videos, a learning guide, and other related resources being created on a daily basis. We encourage you to go to the 2011 Scripting Games all-in-one page, which is the portal for the Games themselves. The 2010 Scripting Games all-in-one page is still available, as are the events from the 2009 Scripting Games.
