Congrats, everyone, and thank you for your contributions! We have some great swag this month; hope you like it!
Q & A with Wade Alsup
I had a few questions for Wade Alsup, this month's featured member.
Tell us a bit about yourself and your experience with Meraki.
I’m 29 and live in Wichita Falls, Texas. I’ve been in the IT world for about 10 years and an avid Meraki user the last 2 and a half years. I started at Air Tractor (we make Big Yellow Cropdusters, among a few other aircraft, and have a network of dealers around the world) in early 2014 in a newly created position as the first true IT employee. Using the Meraki full-stack has really helped me retroactively accommodate to Air Tractor's growth over the last 10 years.
Any particular Meraki product / feature that you're particularly fond of or couldn't live without?
As the only current IT guy here, I don’t think I could live without the Dashboard. That single pane of glass approach really gives me time to focus on other tasks like server administration, desktop support, and developmental tasks in our ERP. As the whole IT department, that is a Godsend for me!
How does the community help you in your day-to-day work?
The community has been such a stress reliever for me. The fact that daily there are other IT folk that are seeing issues that I’ve seen and haven’t… it’s that reality of our positions and the fact that we aren’t alone… it’s nice to have that support to lean on as well. I love the Meraki Community!
