I was fortunate enough today to talk with a great engineer from IBM about his experience at IBM Tech Fest, Keith Thuerk. Keith is based in the South East and is a FTSS (SE) for IBM and has been helping clients find IBM storage solutions in his area for over two years. He has a strong background in networking and works hard on finding solutions that are creative and fit customer's pain points. This week, Keith and other engineers from the East came together for technical training on IBM storage.
Keith and I talked about training and how important it is to keep up your skills. We also chatted about how social media is changing the marketplace.
Keith is also a blogger for IBM and is tweeting information about IBM storage. You can find his blog, Data Center 7.0 here and follow him on twitter, @kthuerk
Here is the audio file from our conversation.
