I think this is kinda cool…
The Community-Submitted Script Center is open for business.
Are you proud of a script you’ve written? Share it with the world! This is a place where you can upload and share your scripts. And if you’re not a scripter, but you’d like to see what others have done, then you can browse and download them from here, too.
“What’s in it for me?”
Ah… well, if you upload a script between now and February 28th, 2006, and it meets the criteria for being published, you’ll be sent an access code for a free online e-learning course offered by Microsoft E-Learning. (See the script center for a link to the selection criteria.)
“Are there many scripts there yet?”
No.. actually at the time of this blogging there are none there. So now’s your chance to be the first!
“How did you learn about this?”
Well.. I subscribe to the TechNet Flash email newsletter. If you’re an IT Pro, I think you should do the same.
UPDATE: Tom Shinder commented about wanting resources for how to start scripting. Silly me for forgetting to add a link to the Microsoft TechNet Script Center. There you'll find links to many many resources, as well as to main "LearnIt" page.
Additionally some scripting guys who call themselves "The Scripting Guys" have done some wonderful, very highly-rated webcasts and series', and post daily "Hey, Scripting Guy!" articles, too.
Do you have any advise for people who want to learn about writing scripts from the ground up? I'm talking about people who have NO programming or batch file writing experience at all, but who are really jiggy with the Windows platform and server system? Thanks! Tom firstname.lastname@example.org
(Dude... I love your ISA Server 2004 book. Seriously.)
I'm really sorry I didn't put a link in the posting. I had intended to do that, but forgot.
I'll add an update right away. Thanks!
