I must say it feels like it was ages ago when we started games, but we are almost at the finish line. I have no idea who is going to win the whole thing, but I have few candidates in mind that did wonderful job and quite frankly: I was learning from them, not other way around. Looks like I’m getting rusty with whole this “scripting” thing.
I must say I was a little puzzled when reading description for this event. For me the main issue in this even is the lack of information about DHCP server. I assumed this is Windows 2012 (same as Hyper-V host), but I can’t find it anywhere in event description (I may be tired though and simply missed it). To be honest: we are not event told that DHCP server runs on Windows.
We are very close to the end of Scripting Games 2013. But before we finish with event 6, time to say few words about event 5… This time I will focus on things I liked, and things I didn’t like, without paying too much attention to category where I’ve seen either.
It looks like I missed another deadline. Luckily, I’m not participating this year, so the only negative outcome of it is the fact that I will post my solution after most of you already seen entries done by others. I haven’t (I promise!) so you can expect many mistakes you’ve avoided by giving it second, third or fourth thought. I also had no chance to test it on some “real” material like some participants did (yes, I’ve seen your tweets and I’m sure you did it better, thank you for sharing! ). Wonder how I could improve it… Surely – will find out soon. One note: I decided to focus on IPv4. Mainly because I started so late, and didn’t wanted to spent too much time on handling IPv6 addresses, that are less obvious to match with regular expression (IMO).
Active Directory is one of those things I just love to work with. That’s why I was looking forward to the entries in this particular event. I found out few things I was not aware of while reading some of the entries, but also seen some mistakes that I would like to highlight. As always: I will start with Beginner category “positives”, and move on until I get to “negatives” in Advanced category.
Scripting Games is chance to learn things. You can learn by good example, or by mistakes, but often – mistake for one person is perfect solution for other. In PowerShell there are usually many ways to skin the cat, some of those I like – some, not so much. So what did I like and dislike so far? Here are few notes I made.
