Today the Microsoft Scripting Guys have officially announced the 2012 PowerShell Scripting Games.
Long-time readers of this blog will know that every year I recommend taking part in the Scripting Games as a great way to learn PowerShell through completing some real-world tasks.
The exciting thing about this year's games is that you can use a pre-release version of PowerShell v3 to take part, so even if you're already familiar with PowerShell, you can challenge yourself to use some of the new features in your solutions.
I'm definitely going to be taking part when the events start in April, and by then I'd expect the North East PowerShell Script Club to be up and running, so we'll perhaps look at some of the challenges together.
Keep an eye on the Hey, Scripting Guy! Blog for more info.
