We keep innovating around the content of the PowerShell Summit to ensure it remains fresh and relevant to our attendees. This year we’re introducing the Iron Scripter competition. As a run up to the main competition I’ve written a number of challenges. The first half of the Iron Scripter puzzles are available.
The puzzle is published on a Sunday with a commentary the following Sunday. I’ve listed the first six commentaries:
Puzzle 1: fix code to get monitor information and create objects – https://powershell.org/2018/01/21/iron-scripter-prequel-puzzle-1-a-solution/
Puzzle 2: change text output to objects and create format file – https://powershell.org/2018/01/28/iron-scripter-prequel-puzzle-2-a-commentary/
Puzzle 3: web feeds – https://powershell.org/2018/02/04/iron-scripter-2018-prequel-puzzle-3-a-commentary/
Puzzle 4: legacy utilities – https://powershell.org/2018/02/11/iron-scripter-2018-prequel-puzzle-4-a-commentary/
Puzzle 5: working with performance counters – https://powershell.org/2018/02/18/iron-scripter-2018-prequel-puzzle-5-a-commentary/
Puzzle 6: determining uptime – https://powershell.org/2018/02/25/iron-scripter-prequel-puzzle-6-commentary/
The commentary documents supply the puzzle and then the commentary. If you’ve not looked at them they are designed to have some serious learning points.
You don’t have to be attending the Summit to work through the puzzles.
