Featured IT Blogger of the Week: Andy Dale

JennyMack Jenny Mackintosh Profile: JennyMack

This week’s featured blogger is Andy Dale of AboutSharePoint.com. Andy Dale is a Senior SharePoint Consultant at a Microsoft Partner company. His blog discusses many different aspects of SharePoint software, from the benefits of using it in different sectors, to the important points of upgrades. His writing style is clear, not full of jargon and techspeak, and his expertise is broad. For those of us who could use some brushing up on our SharePoint skills (and that’s likely most of us), Andy’s blog is a great resource.

You can visit AboutSharepoint.com here.

JennyMack Jenny Mackintosh Profile: JennyMack

Now through the end of April, you can not only show off your IT skills by asking and answering questions on ITKnowledgeExchange.com, but you can earn the chance to spend some quality time honing your bad-guy-vaporizing skills on your very own Xbox 360.

From today (March 18th) through April 30th, you have a chance to win one of three Xbox 360 consoles. The winners will be the top 3 community members who have the most Knowledge Points earned and have asked 5 IT-related questions (you still earn Knowledge points for asking questions) during the contest period. So tell your friends and co-workers to post their IT questions on ITKnowledgeExchange.com so you can answer and rack up your Knowledge Points.

The top three Knowledge Point earners (who have qualified by also submitting 5 IT related questions) will earn:

1st Place: Xbox 360 Elite
2nd Place: Xbox 360
3rd Place: Xbox 360 Arcade

Some important details:

  • This contest is only open to members in the following countries or regions: United States, Canada, United Kingdom and Western Europe.
  • Previous Xbox contest winners are not eligble for this contest.
  • All answers, discussion and questions will be reviewed for validity.

JennyMack Jenny Mackintosh Profile: JennyMack

This week’s featured IT Blogger is Andy Willingham of Andy, IT Guy.

Andy is an Information Security Officer who learned the ropes being a security administrator for a financial services holding company. He first started there as a network admin, and has since gained a wealth of knowledge that has propelled him into the blogosphere. On Andy, IT Guy, you can read about security news and events, mainly in the Atlanta area. You can also gain some insight into his recent trip to Madrid for the Security Blogger Summit (yes, Spain… I’m a little jealous), or read his opinion on any number of security-related topics. Andy recently featured IT Knowledge Exchange in a post on his blog, here.

Andy, IT Guy is a great blog to visit if you are involved in the realm of security — we’re happy to feature him as our IT Blogger of the Week!
