  • These are a few of my favorite things: Podcasts

    I drive… a lot and one of my favorite things to do when driving is listen to training and podcasts. There are a lot of good podcasts out there and I decided to post some of them that I listen to and ask what podcasts you listen to…

    I am only going to list the ones that are technology related for me, mostly focused on VMware, Citrix and end user computing (EUC).  I have broken them up into groups below. I also encourage you to join live when you can, sometimes the best moments are after the recordings stop 🙂

    • Ask Eric by +xenappblog 
      • Description
        • Eric gets a lot of emails from his blog visitors and customers of his training. Many of the questions are being repeated time after time. So, Eric decided to dedicate an entire podcast show to answering your questions instead! Each episode is only 5-8 minutes

    There are others I listen to and the EUC ones are fairly new and I am looking forward to seeing how those develop.

    This isn’t all of them that I listen to but now my question to you is what podcasts or things do you listen to?

  • Winds of Change, now with Varrow

    Lately my blogging activity has been a little slacking. I am going to let you in on a probably not so secret secret. Sometimes opportunity knocks softly and sometimes it hits you with a hammer on the head and you have to recognize and seize that opportunity.

    The winds of change have taken me to Varrow focusing on delivering End User Computing solutions. Varrow has developed a reputation for hiring great talent. I don’t know how I got hired but I hope I can do this company justice. Varrow has three speakers at VMworld this year and now has 5 vExperts on their staff.

    Read Jason Nash’s blog here and go to their sessions, you will not be disappointed.

    Also make sure you mark your calendar for Varrow Madness 2013 #VM13 
    Varrow Madness 2013 will be in Raleigh, NC on March 21st!

    Expect the same variety but mainly with a focus on the user and how these products and tools can help a customer succeed with their goals.  I expect to continue my blogging around Citrix, VMware and other exciting technologies in the End User Computing arena.
