Back in January, I had the pleasure and honor of being the very first guest on the Frontline Chatter Podcast with the great Andrew Morgan and Jarian Gibson. You can listen to that episode HERE. The guys have since produced some amazing stuff with far smarter guests than I! If you work in Enterprise IT or even if you don’t and you’re just in to all things Tech, you owe it to yourself to checkout this amazing Podcast. You can find it at HERE and of course, you can subscribe to the Podcast in iTunes, if you please
The EUC (End User Computing) Podcast is hosted by a panel of the best and brightest in the community. It’s like being a fly on the wall during a meeting of the brain trust. The co-horts include: Dane Young, Andrew Wood,Steve Greenberg, Mike Nelson,Chris Rogers, Barry Coombs,Thomas Poppelgaard, Cláudio Rodrigues, Alexander Ervik and Dwayne Lessner This podcast is not only available on iTunes to download. It also streams live! And whilst it’s streaming you can partake in the discussion using on Crowd Chat
Ask Eric is hosted by Trond Eric Haavarstein and you can find it HERE.. Eric runs the very popular Xenappblog.com and appv5training.com. He has been very committed to contributing in a big way to our online community in the past. Not only through his blog posts but also by providing an excellent platform for webinars. I have had the pleasure of presenting a couple of webinars which were very well attended, which I believe speaks volumes about the popularity or Eric and his site! The Podcast itself is different to Frontline Chatter and the EUC Podcast. The format is Eric answering your questions. They are pointed questions with definitive answers. It’s a great idea and I love that each of the three podcasts that I’ve mentioned here are unique in format and content!
Recently, I saw a tweet from Steve Greenberg speaking about trying to start up a User Group in Phoenix, Arizona. This part of a larger movement that I believe was started during Citrix Synergy. It’s the CUGC. I hope to be involved with my local User Group. If you’re interested in getting involved, you should check out your own local on the CUGC site!
Some of the big vendors also have platforms such as Microsoft’s excellent Channel 9. There’s lots of great content on that site. They also give some of my fellow MVP’s a platform to share their knowledge on the site, which is great.
When I was in Ireland, I collaborated on the Irish IT Pro Technet page by contributing some App-V tutorial videos. If you’re in Ireland and would like to participate, reach out to Dave, he’s a great guy and willing to give you a place to share your knowledge, like HERE
The great thing is that our online community is very supportive. There’s many, many opportunities for you to learn from peers and also to contribute yourself. I would encourage everybody to get involved. You might not think it right now but I bet everybody reading this has more than enough knowledge to blog, present or even have your own Podcast. When is a good time to start? NOW!
