10 PRINT "HELLO WORLD!"
Isn’t that the quintessential title of the first post on a tech-focused blog? Completely unoriginal yet familiar and comforting. All I need to add is a Star Trek/Wars reference to cement my geek ‘cred’ and we could call it a day. Or I guess I could skip that and just say I authored this blog in vi.
So who am I and what is this blog for? My name is Tyler Britten and I am an IT infrastructure geek. I’m currently employed by EMC as a vSpecialist on the VMware Affinity Team. Previous to that I worked as technical consultant for a small infrastructure reseller, a network engineer for a Fortune 1000 company, and I also freelanced as an IT consultant for small businesses. I’ve also cleaned pools, directed traffic, been a short order cook, telemarketer, and made ice cream. I have certifications from EMC, Cisco, VMware, NetApp, Riverbed, Microsoft, CommVault, and I'm sure a few others.
I’m obviously fascinated by technology and I decided to start this blog (besides all the usual narcissistic reasons) to share not only my opinions, but also tips and tricks I discover along my travels with enterprise tech as well as consumer electronics. Of course, all opinions expressed are my own and do not represent my employer.
Hopefully you’ll find something interesting here. Of course feedback is always welcome.
