This is the biggest contest I have had in the 10+ years I have been blogging! In all12 prizes to give away!

The top prize of $100 will be awarded to the person with the best feedback! This could be good, bad, doesn’t matter just provide an honest review and assessment of the single server or domain setup scripts (forgive my poor PowerShell skills and spelling mistakes), BizTalk on IaaS, how you might use the scripts, or your Azure Virtual Machine experience in general. A panel will review the comments and select the winner. All decisions are final. The other 11 prizes will be awarded at random.

Call to Action – Get the Scripts:

  • Single Server Microsoft Azure BizTalk 2013 Developer Edition Setup Scripts
  • Domain Microsoft Azure BizTalk 2013 Enterprise Setup Scripts

Lets talk about what is at stake in this contest. Top prize is $100 cash paid via PayPal in US funds sponsored by BizTalk 360. If you live in a country that does not accept PayPal you can select another prize if you win. Other prizes include 5 30-day unlimited memberships to Pluralsight and 6 eBooks of the new book “Getting Started with BizTalk Services 2013” sponsored by Packt Publishing.

Three ways to enter, enter all three ways to triple your changes to win one of the 11 random prizes!

Only one prize per winner. In each case please comment on the new PowerShell scripts, BizTalk on IaaS, or Microsoft IaaS in general.
The good, bad, did they work for you, did you look at then – if not why? You do not even need to run the scripts or even download them if you do not want to. Any comment is welcome but constructive feedback is appreciated over just a simple “they suck”.

1. Enter via Twitter – Tweet your comments about the PowerShell scripts, Ensure to include @StephenWThomas and the hash tag #msbts. If you have too much to say, you can link to a post of your comment / review you have on a blog or on this site. Or link to either the Single Server or Domain PowerShell scripts. It’s that easy.

2. Enter via Facebook – Like BizTalkGurus on Facebook if you don’t always. Post to our wall about your experience with the PowerShell scripts. Link to one of the download pages or to your own review / comments / blog.

3. Enter via a Comment on either Single Server or Domain PowerShell download pages above. If you comment on both, only one will count. If you post a comment without being logged in, ensure we have a way to contact you if you win.

The contest is open now through Monday June 30st at 11:59 PM CST. Winners will be announced around Thursday July 3rd.

Good luck!
