We observed some confusion about the relationship between TechNet Script Repository and All-In-One Script Framework. TechNet Script Repository is a great platform for sharing, finding, and downloading script samples. All-In-One Script Framework (AIOSF) is focused on creating script samples. The script samples created by All-In-One Script Framework are eventually published on TechNet Script Repository.
The key value that All-In-One Script Framework is trying to deliver is Scenario-Focused Script Samples driven by IT Pros’ real-world pains and needs. The team of AIOSF is monitoring all TechNet forums, and collecting frequently asked IT scenarios. For example, if more than three forum threads are asking about the same IT task, we will regard it as an IT Pros’ pain point, and consider creating a script sample to automate the task and save IT Pros’ time. We are also monitoring all IT Pros’ support calls to Microsoft, and will start to monitor the script requests submitted to TechNet Script Repository. Therefore, the source of script topics in All-In-One Script Framework is different from the tradition. There is customer evidence behind every script published in AIOSF. All our effort is to deliver script samples that can better align with and meet IT Pros’ real-world needs.
All-In-One Script Framework is actually a new sister project of All-In-One Code Framework (AIOCF) in the developer area. In 2009, we started AIOCF for the developer community. Today, AIOCF has over 1000 customer-driven code samples, 6 million downloads and lots of customer kudos. We see that customers love the customer-driven content that can address their real-world needs. The team started to expand the audience from developers to IT Pros, and thus All-In-One Script Framework was born.
All-In-One Script Framework is a joint effort across many Microsoft teams. We work together to triage script ideas, compose script samples, test and review samples based on a streamlined process. We also hope to have deeper engagements with communities and MVPs to collect script topics, vote for existing script topics, and raise the quality of scripts to a new level.
Dear community, we hope to learn from you how you think about the value of this project effort. The team of All-In-One Script Framework sincerely hope that these customer-driven automation script samples can help our IT community.
Thank you and have a nice day!
