A few weeks ago, just before the announcement to start recruiting your team for the 2014 Winter Scripting Games, I was contacted by Don Jones and Richard Siddaway about an opportunity to become the Head Coach for the Winter Scripting Games. I was honored to have been contacted and I’m a firm believer of taking advantage of opportunities when they emerge, especially when they’re PowerShell related, so I graciously accepted.
One of my first responsibilities was to recruit a small team of coaches. I immediately went to work before potential coaches committed themselves to participating on teams. We had a huge number of people in the PowerShell community who had volunteered to be a coach and while we would have liked to have selected everyone who volunteered, we only had a specific number of positions to fill. Without further ado, here is the list of the coaches for the 2014 Winter Scripting Games:
To keep up with the latest news and announcements about the Scripting Games, I recommend following the Scripting Games announcements on PowerShell.org. Did you know that you can also subscribe to the RSS feed for just the Scripting Games category on PowerShell.org?
You may also want to consider following the coaches on twitter as well as visiting their blog sites (click on a coaches name in the list to visit their blog site).
Registration for teams begin on January 2nd, 2014 so start unofficially building your team now with social media (#PshGames on Twitter) or via contacts that you’ve made. Teams can have between two and six members and there are some additional details about teams that I recommend reading about on PowerShell.org: 2014 Winter Scripting Games: Team Formation Tips and Important Scripting Games Login and Operational Information.
Additional items that I recommend taking a look at are: “2014 Winter Scripting Games Schedule” and “2014 Winter Scripting Games Players’ Guide”.
