IT Pro’s and the Tech Community – Yadin Porter de Leon - Ep 57
One of the favourite parts of my role over the last few years has been my involvement in tech community, whether that's been working with advocacy groups like the NetApp A-Team, with local user groups like TechUG, presenting at a range of different community events or just answering questions in technical communities, all of these investments (and they are investments) have paid back, they've introduced me to great people, given me access to resources and expertise I would never have found normally and opened up great opportunities for travel and too develop some great friendships.
One of the challenges with tech community is however its size and if you are new to it or even a part of it, it can be overwhelming and hard to know where to start? How do you find the resources you need, find out which events you can attend or find out who the leaders are that you can engage with ?
Last year I was invited to get involved in a project called "Level Up", a project started by this week's guest on the podcast Yadin Porter de Leon, Yadin has been on the show before in his capacity at data protection company Druva, however that's not what we discuss this week as we chat about the Level Up project, why he started it, the project aims and how it can help you in your career.
In this week's episode we discuss why you may want to get involved in community and what benefits it can bring and how involvement in the wider community can benefit both you and your business providing you with opportunities to develop your skills.
We wrap up by asking Yadin about another project he is involved in which is the excellent Tech Village Podcast, again focused on career development and the technology business, a great show which I'd recommend anyone gets on their regular podcast list.
Enjoy the Show...
