Scripting Blitz - FAQ

Question asked by mkieran on Jan 2, 2014

Have you ever used scripting to solve an especially difficult or repetitive task? Would you like to get recognition for your effort?

 

Nimble Storage is excited to announce the first Nimble Scripting Blitz – an opportunity for us to reward NimbleConnect members who share their most innovative scripts with the Nimble community. The script must be non-proprietary; it can written in any language (such as Powershell, Perl, Shell, Python, or Javascript),; and it can perform any storage-related function with Windows, VMWare, or Linux, with or without using Nimble Storage arrays.

A panel of Nimble Storage engineers will review submissions at the end of January and announce winners on February 7th. We’re looking for innovation, simplification, and ease of use (including installation).

  • Third prize: $50 Amazon gift card
  • Second prize: $100 Amazon gift card
  • First prize: Your choice of a PlayStation 4 or Xbox One

To enter the contest, add your script as a page anywhere in NimbleConnect, and simply tag the page "scriptingblitz".
