System Center Virtual User Group

As you might have read earlier, the System Center Virtual User Group was launched, on March 27th. It’s a user group dedicated to providing resources for education and collaboration between users of Microsoft System Center technologies everywhere. Check it out at www.systemcenterusergroup.org.

To get the user group off to a fun start, we were discussing the possibility of hosting a contest for the best custom System Center solution, and need to know if you’d be willing to participate. Please read the following, and then post a comment to this thread if you would be willing to play.

The contest would showcase the best custom System Center community solution for a number of categories, including custom Management Pack (Opsmgr / Essentials), Configuration Pack (SCCM), Scripts (any System Center product), etc. Users would submit their entries to the site for judgement by a panel of System Center experts. Prizes would include XBOX 360 (for the overall winner), a Zune for the first couple of runners-up overall, and then books and miscellaneous prizes for the runners-up in each category.

Would you be willing to participate?
If so, register on the site (free) and add a comment to this post. If it looks like there will be a good number of participants, we will announce something official in the next few days! So, what are you waiting for?
