IT Takes A Village...

"IT Takes a Village", taken from the African proverb, "It takes a village to raise a child." might seem like an odd sentiment and title for a blog about Information Technology and Virtualization.  As I mentioned in my introductory post I am also very passionate about the IT community and this growing passion is what ultimately led to my decision to finally step outside of my comfort zone and start this blog.

I recently attended VMworld 2017 and the great conversations I had the opportunity to engage in while there were absolutely priceless. I wouldn't have asked my current employer to send me to VMworld in the first place if I hadn't been encouraged to by a number of community members. These conversations and the advice I received gave me that final push I needed to start this blog, to step out of my comfort zone, and to be more active in the IT community.
