I was approached by the gentlemen over at Druva to be a guest on their monthly podcast SOCK(net). They wanted to focus on community with this episode so they asked me on to discuss my experiences with the VMware User Group (VMUG). We spend just under an hour discussing thoughts, trends, and experiences with regards to the tech community.

Community is a great way to expand your knowledge and increase your personal and professional network! User Groups are where I have focused here but they are not the only option. Forum communities, volunteer work, meet-and-greets, you name it there are plenty of other options to get involved and grow as a professional.
