SOCK(net): Communities in Technology

In this episode of the SOCK(net) podcast, Yadin and Tony talk about the importance of getting involved with the greater technology community and are joined by special guest Aaron Bolthouse who is the Manager of IT Infrastructure at Hatco Corporation and on the steering committee for the Wisconsin VMUG.

Community is more than just the people that sit next to you. Immersing yourself in the greater technology community has a myriad of benefits that extend beyond certifications and skill sets. Growth opportunities exist for community members as well as their organizations and our discussion with Aaron reveals some very easy ways to get started.

Among the issues discussed:

  • How to get started: Where to find resources and how to take the first step.
  • What’s in it for you: How do the community experiences directly translated to personal and professional growth.
  • What’s in it for your company: How member participation translates into real world value for the companies they work for.
  • And most importantly: One thing that you should never, ever do.
