Awesome start to the New Year being mentioned in Lee’s post, along with some other great blogs!

Man, there are soooo many smart people out there doing wireless networking. I’m guessing that if you’re reading this, you have no trouble bubbling up at least a few names of people who are seen and heard often in the WLAN community. Maybe they are very active on social media, or frequently present at conferences, or have a podcast that you enjoy. We’re fortunate in this realm to be in the company of awesome folks that are happy to share of their knowledge and of their opinions/philosophies on matters that matter to us.

As 2018 kicks in, I’d like to direct your attention towards a half-dozen blogs that might not currently be on your radars. I’ve come to know of these from different circumstances for each, but have found value in all of them.

ANZ Wi-Fi Pros

I’ve been quiet with blog posts since returning from Wi-Fi Trek due to focusing on studying and passing the CWAP and CWSP exams, all done now! I passed CWDP at Wi-Fi Trek, so now I am preparing my CWNE application.

Whilst at Wi-Fi Trek Peter Mackenzie (@MackenzieWiFi) provided an overview of the WLAN Association (@WLANAssociation) and the goals of standardising best practices and assurance for Wi-Fi network delivery. 

Along with the great community spirit at the conference some of us from Oceania recognised we didn’t have much in the way of an established community Down Under; so @WiFiNZ@WazzFi , and I decided to start the ANZ Wi-Fi Pros (@ANZWiFi) Twitter page to share information, jobs, and events in our region.     

So if you’re a Kiwi or Aussie wireless professional interested in growing our community support in the region, please join us and follow the group!                                     

CWNP Wi-Fi Trek – Orlando!

CWNP Wi-Fi Trek conference kicks off today! Over 200 wireless professionals attending from around the world from various industries and backgrounds; from junior through to exec job roles, and zero to expertly certified.

The opening keynote was presented by Dr Kevin Snyder, a fantastic leadership and motivational speaker! A great way to set up for 3 days of technical presentations.

Thoroughly impressed with the setup here, and the resort is something else.

In addition to the fantastic training courses over the last 3 days (I attended CWAP run by guru Peter Mackenzie), it has been immensely valuable to network with other professionals in such a passionate area of the ICT industry; and I’ve still yet to meet so many more people!
