Xtreme Podcast: Tech conferences put the ‘pro’ in IT professional

Welcome to this week’s installment of the Xtreme Minute. This is our weekly rundown of the TechGenix Xtreme Podcast with Louise Chalupiak and Peter King with links that will take you directly to the articles up for discussion along with additional TechGenix content.

We start the day with an article by Amy Babinchak, Why you – yes you! – need to attend tech conferences. Love them or hate them, technical conferences confirm our role as a professional and keep us in the game. Not only does Amy confirm the importance of keeping our knowledge up-to-date, she also provides great attendance tips to help us all make the most of this investment.

Next up is an article by Lavanya Rathnam titled, U.S. vs. Huawei: This skirmish is really about a bigger war. As we brace for a potential change in world order, control of the next information medium appears to be on the front line. As we watch from the sidelines while the political powers battle it out, Lavanya warns that there will be an impact to the end user.

Closing off, we discuss an article by Mitch Tulloch, Riding the Windows lifecycle without falling off: Are you supported? Windows 10 will live on forever. Or will it? Support of each update is provided for 18 months. Or is it? Version numbers indicate the year and month of release. Or do they? Mitch, along with “The Other Mitch” confirm that we are all justified in scratching our heads.
