2012 Scripting Games Wrap Up

A couple of weeks ago I got an email from Ed “Scripting Guy” Wilson at Microsoft, It was this nice certificate of participation in the 2012 Scripting Games.

While I cant say that I killed it in the games, personally I think I did pretty well for myself. I entered into the beginner category as I have only really just started scripting. I also wasn’t sure what to expect and figured it was the safe bet.

I missed out on Event 8 mostly because I was trying to overthink it and just gave up. So out of the 9 events, 4 scripts received 5 stars, 1 was given 4.5 stars and 1 was given 4 stars, which to me seems pretty good for a first time go!

While I haven’t really made any use out of the scripts that I created for the games (expect for the server uptime script), it has given me a better understanding of how things work in PowerShell and enabled me to write some other scripts that I use for work.

I can most certainly say that I will be participating in next years games (Hopefully in the Advanced category)
