3rd PowerGUI Challenge Begins

Create a PowerPack or PowerGUI Editor Add-On, post it, become famous and win prizes! And obviously have lots of PowerShell fun along the way. 🙂 These are the key rules of the 3rd annual PowerGUI Challenge.

The contest has just started and will last till November, 15th. Just like in all previous years, there is an amazing panel of judges (Jeffrey Snover, Hemant Mahawar, Don Jones, Jeffery Hicks, Shay Levy, Brandon Shell, Aleksandar Nikolic, Marco Shaw, Kirk Munro, and myself), great prizes (up to $1000! Thank you Quest Software. ;)) and blog posts from us promoting each entry and participant.

However, unlike previous years, this time you got to chose how you want to participate. You can do so by creating either:

  • A PowerPack – extention to the PowerGUI administrative console – PowerShell-based GUI to manage a particular platform (for ideas, see last year winners list or browse PowerGUI Library), or
  • A PowerGUI Script Editor Add-On – adding whatever functionality you have always wanted to have in the script IDE of your dream (for ideas, see the add-ons we already have in our library).

Or both. Or a few of both – we have prizes for the most active participants too.

Keep in mind that the earlier you start posting  your creations to PowerGUI.org – the more feedback and suggestions you get, so the bigger are your chances of winning the contest!

Here are a few links to help you get started:

Plus, we are always there to help! Just post your questions to the forum here. Don’t wait! Enter the contest now! 🙂
