Paul's Security Weekly #537
Recorded November 16, 2017 at G-Unit Studios in Rhode Island!
Tech Segment: Mike Roderick & Adam Gordon, ITProTV - 6:00-6:45PM
Mike Rodrick from Norman, OK found his niche a little later for his life in the raucous scene of the 90s country western bar scene. It was there he developed the skill that would propel him to mullet fame: Line-Dancing. It is here at ITPro.TV his true skill shines. He’s our resident IT Security Kung-Fu Master only equaled by his skill in flattering our fearless ITPro.TV leader! With 10 years of IT instruction experience, he was hired as an ITProTV Edutainer in 2014. Mike enjoys working at ITProTV because he helps others become successful in IT and gets to learn new technology every day. ITProTV's learning method is his favorite because it's casual, informative, entertaining and gets viewers excited about IT.
Not too long ago rock star legend Jimi Hendrix posed the important question, “are you experienced,” foreshadowing the birth of one of the most expert Microsoft experts in the history of experts, Adam Gordon. Holding 160 certifications and counting, Adam’s encyclopedia of knowledge is only rivaled by his massive, and quite ridiculous, collection of socks. Adam’s 30+ years as an IT instructor in the private and public sectors are fueled by his passion for gobbling down espresso like a college kid downing beers at Oktoberfest. His long hair and assortment of bracelets are a memento of his days working in the music industry, rubbing shoulders with celebrities in exclusive European clubs, but he now lives the quiet, married life in South Florida, teaching and traveling with his wife and two daughters. Adam has been a SME for ITProTV for a long time, and we are excited to welcome him as a full-time host; check out his 19-page resume when you have a couple of hours to kill and want to feel like an underachiever. Learn all things Microsoft with Adam and stay updated on the latest trends in sock fashion live and on-demand with ITProTV.
