This is the start of an awesome podcast series called MVPITPro. I am excited to be working with MVP Andy Syewicze from Altaro Software to produce this series of podcasts for all the IT Pros out there. Episode one is with my fellow MVP and friend Symon Perriman of FanWide, and 5nine Software before that. 🙂 So sit back and enjoy the ride!!! And maybe you learn a little bit about being an MVP!!
Enjoy, until next time, Rob Corradini, MVP, Cloud & Datacenter
