Summary: Caught up in the excitement of all the 2012 Scripting Games prep work, the Scripting Manager agrees to be a judge this year.
Microsoft Scripting Guy, Ed Wilson, is here. I have a bit of exciting news! Dave Bishop, "the Scripting Manager," has just agreed to be a judge for this years scripting games. What happened is this...
He has been reading my weekly status reports for the last several months, and each week I add a bit of new information about the 2012 Scripting Games. Today, he was overcome with all the buzz surrounding the games, and he emailed me asking me how he could participate. I am always looking for well qualified judges—in fact, next to planning the games, judging the Scripting Games is the most work. Now, one thing to keep in mind is that managers at Microsoft are generally all technical people. In fact, many extremely technical people become managers at Microsoft. This is the case with Dave. He has many years of experience as an IT Pro, and he has been an avid scripter for about as long. Therefore, having him sign on to be a judge is a HUGE win for this year's games.
By the way, here is a list of this year's Scripting Games Judges. If you happen to meet one, make sure that you tell them thanks. This is also a great time to review the 2012 Scripting Games judging criteria. Remember, these criteria are more than just for the 2012 Scripting Games—they are also a great check list for all enterprise Windows PowerShell script development.
In 11 days, we can shout out, “Let the Games begin...” Until then, see you tomorrow.
Ed Wilson, Microsoft Scripting Guy
