LOS ANGELES, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 05/14/09 -- At Microsoft TechEd 2009, PowerShellCommunity.org, an online community where script writers connect and share knowledge, today announced a key alliance with the Microsoft Script Center (aka Scripting Guys) and PoshCode.org to host the 2009 Scripting Games, June 15-26, 2009.

"We started the Games to challenge scripters everywhere, invite them in to become part of a fun community, and to learn in a cost-effective way," said John Merrill, IT content evangelist and publishing manager in the Windows Server Division User Assistance group. "We are pleased to work together with PowerShellCommunity.org in helping deliver a premium scripting experience for the two weeks in June when we host the Games."
