What is vRealize Automation - Episode 21
IT Reality Podcast
I have been listening to Podcasts for many years. Everyday while driving to and from work I would listen to a Podcast. Anytime I traveled to a conference I would download hours worth of Podcasts to listen to while flying. Most of the Podcasts I listen to are Technology related. Here are some of my favorites:
- IT Reality
- Virtual Speaking Podcast
- Develop Great Managers
- vBrown Bag
- Mac Power Users
- Twit Network of Podcasts
I have had an interest to be a guest on a Podcast for several years. I always thought to myself, when I get to a point in my career that I could share my knowledge, I would try and be a guest on a Podcast. After doing several presentations about VMware vRealize Automation, I wanted the next step to be a guest spot on a Podcast to reach a larger audience. When I saw a post on Twitter that the IT Reality Podcast was looking for everyday Technology people passionate about a topic and willing to share the knowledge, I reached out to them to show my interest in appearing on their Podcast. We had a meeting and the Hosts felt I had a good story to tell, so we scheduled a time to record the Podcast. The hosts, Vince Wood and Sam Larch, were awesome to work with. They also invited Nathan Bennett to be on the episode as a guest and he was also great to talk with. The experience to talk with these guys was a good way for me to appear on a Podcast. While recording the Podcast I learned some knowledge from Nathan that I will use in my current Automation environment.
If it wasn’t for other people sharing knowledge by creating Blogging web sites or appearing on Podcasts, I wouldn’t have the knowledge that I do today. I hope that I can give back to the vCommunity like they have done for me. I would encourage anyone who wants to share their knowledge to Just Do It! Create a Blogging Web Site or start attending local User Groups and “Little Hacks”. It can be very rewarding.
