People

In this section, I cover stuff that is not about the technology and the products. This section is about us, the individual. It’s about the Architect, the Engineer, the Operations team, etc that earn a living via our knowledge on virtualisation and VMware. Yes, it is about us the people that make up the wonderful virtualization community.

It’s also covering the non-technical knowledge. Things such as soft skills and our productivity as IT Pro are covered here.

  • Some posts on this blog were written by Guest Bloggers. It’s a good way to start if you are not sure if you can commit the time.

Productivity

  • Email is a key component of our work life. I shared tips that I’ve been using for a long time here and here.
