Carole Selected for Networking Field Day 6

We are excited to announce that Carole Warner Reece has been selected as a technical delegate to the September Networking Field Day #6 hosted by Gestalt IT.  Carole is a Senior Consultant at Chesapeake NetCraftsmen and CCIE #5168. She follows in the footsteps of Terry Slattery and Peter Welcher, past Field Day participants from NetCraftsmen.

Tech Field Day events bring together innovative IT product vendors and independent thought leaders to share information and opinions in an interactive format. Attendees get a chance to learn about new technologies and products, get their questions answered, and learn from other participants. Vendors get a chance too engage with some of the best and brightest minds in the industry. Invited delegates are typically full-time IT staffers, contractors, integrators, and community leaders in the areas of technology covered at each particular Field Day. They actively write blogs, participate in online communities, work with user groups, and share their insight and knowledge about IT infrastructure products. Carole is looking forward to gathering some new blog material from the week!

Most of the presentations will be streamed live on the event page: After the event, this page will contain the video recordings, and portions of presentations are also posted on YouTube.
