What was the last ITProTV course you watched?

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”.

Tell us about your career/what you do. 

  • IT Support Specialist

One of ITProTV’s values is facing challenges with optimism. How did you face challenges with optimism? (tell us a crazy “on the job” story)!

  • 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!

How has ITProTV helped you in your career?

  • I began as a Service Desk support. My employer supports employee development by offering certifications tests for free, so I started with the easy Microsoft MTA stuff. Now I’m MCSE, working with server support and got my promotion!

Tell us about your career/what you do. 

  • Used to be workstations support. Now it’s servers. NDA so I can’t talk about it much.

  • I wish I had such story to tell.

What’s your dream computer setup?

  • Lenovo T480s -laptop and a HPE ProLiant DL560 Gen10 server to remote to.
