SAPIEN Technologies, Inc., developer of PowerShell Studio and PrimalScript, will award a full conference pass for Microsoft Ignite 2017 to a woman in the Windows PowerShell community, or any individual who is new to IT or devops within the last two years, and works with Windows PowerShell in some capacity. SAPIEN encourages other Ignite vendors to match this award and support the attendance of technical women and new talent at IT and devop conferences.
The pass provides “All access. All breakout sessions. All social events,” including meals at the conference.
Candidates must be women who are currently learning and/or using Windows PowerShell in some capacity OR any individual who is new to the IT industry using Windows PowerShell in some capacity, and who will be able to attend the conference if awarded this pass. The award consists only of the attendee conference pass. The award recipient is responsible for all other costs including travel, lodging, and food and drink outside of the conference. SAPIEN assumes no liability. The awarded pass must be used by the recipient; it is not transferrable.
To be considered for this award, send an email introducing yourself and describing your work with Windows PowerShell and the PowerShell community to firstname.lastname@example.org by August 11th, 2017. Include a statement verifying that you will be able to attend the conference if you receive this award.
SAPIEN will select and announce the recipient soon thereafter, leaving plenty of time for securing hotel and travel arrangements. Selection of the recipient is entirely at the discretion of SAPIEN Technologies, Inc.
