How has ITProTV helped you in your career?

  • Yes! I’ve had an account with ITProTV for a while. It’s nice having a discussion based video series. Different but it’s better than being “taught at”.

  • I learned there is always a workaround. With that mindset, anything can be resolved. I don’t know about crazy but I recently used a bootable Linux USB to recover files on a system that crashed. My co-workers with over 15 years experience never thought to use Linux in that way!

What’s your dream computer setup?

  • Any computer with great CPU/Memory. I really like virtualization and love testing out multiple operating systems!

Who is your favorite Edutainer? 

  • Don. I think that’s his name, he’s so knowledgeable!
