The Winter Scripting Games 2008 are right around the corner, starting February 15. Last year, these “games” gave me the kick in the pants to try out Microsoft’s PowerShell scripting, and I must say it might be one of the better skills I acquired through last year; something I could use both at home and at work.
I plan to participate again this year in the PowerShell division(s), but I see they are also including Perl in the games this year. I think I will try to put the most effort into the Perl section since I’m horribly rusty with it.
So check it out, give them a try, and pencil in those dates to save some evenings for devoting some time to the challenges.
