What was the last ITProTV course you watched?

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.

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 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.

Who is your favorite Edutainer?
