I have been trying for the past month to get permission from my company to submit some of my scripts developed on company time, but due to intellectual property agreements and security concerns of making the scripts public, I have not been able to secure permission.  Is there a way to enter the contest w/o making the code public?


Hi Sean,

Thanks for your efforts to share information with the community, it sounds like you've jumped through some hoops to get these published. With this contest the goal is to share the content with the broader community. When you say public, are you talking about ownership of the code or use? If you publish it on Connect then you would be giving permission for others to use your code.

If you go to your Profile under Account in the top right, you can see all of the terms and conditions - this might help with your employers.

Again, thanks for your attempts to share your scripts.

Thanks, Kimberly.  I went ahead and took some time to re-write one of my scripts in Perl on my own time to submit to the contest.
