HackHunterdon Radio Volume 2 Show 3B Virtual Meetup 3-26-2020
Volume 2 Show 3B Virtual Meetup Due to the current Covid-19 quarantine, our normally scheduled HackHunterdon meetup on March 26th at the Lone Eagle Brewing Company was cancelled. But thanks to a few of the members of the group, we decided to hold a virtual meetup instead. Dennis was instrumental in setting up the Zoom conference call and for recording the call. Brandon from Knack.com was gracious to offer to be the speaker. He has run Knack as a virtual company from its inception, so he has a wealth of experience with the work from home experience. Since the meetup lasted almost two hours, I decided to present this as a two-part podcast show. Part A includes Brandon’s introduction and a round robin query of the group. Each member was given an opportunity to tell us about their new or old work from home experience. Part B is the main presentation Brandon gave with questions from the group interjected from time to time. If you are new to working from home, this will be a valuable look into what issues you may find and how it can be done successfully. Even if you have been working from home pre-pandemic, you may find some of Brandon’s experiences helpful to add to yours. This is Part B of Volume 2 Show #3. If you are listening to this part first, a brief intro – this was a virtual meetup that replaced our canceled in person meetup at Lone Eagle Brewing Co. This part is where Brandon presents his experience running a totally virtual company from scratch for the past 6 years. Whether you are now forced to work from home or have been a veteran of working from home, Brandon offers some great insight into this style of work. So let’s rejoin the meetup in progress…

In the past, we recorded these shows live via the Hunterdon Chamber of Commerce streaming radio service. There was video as well so people could see everything via Facebook live. I have archived the audio portion of the shows and posted them to our new podcasting feeds. Future shows will now be audio only podcasts that will be posted to our feeds. Please subscribe to the podcast via your favorite service and you will be notified when new shows are available. Currently, we are on Google Podcasts, BluBrry, Deezer, TuneIn, Spotify, Android, or you can go to the HackHunterdon Radio page on the HackHunterdon website. We have applied to several other services. Check back to see if your favorite service was added. The plan is to start posting 4 shows per month. In other HackHunterdon news, our last meetup was held on February 27th. We had the chance to try out two escape room table top games provided by Mike from Space Escapes. It was fun to solve puzzles as a team and get to the answers. Space Escapes was moving to a new location as part of the upgrades to the Northlandz complex off of route 202. So check them out! We meet the last Thursday of every month @7pm at Lone Eagle. So let’s get right into the show. Today Eric and I discuss what it was like to change managed IT providers and perform an entire IT upgrade at the same time. This meant changing out computers, server, and network gear. It also meant upgrading software and operating systems. Let’s take a listen…
