Featured Member of the Month: jared_f


Profile Photo.pngAt just sixteen years old, Jared is likely the youngest member of the Meraki Community. He does part-time IT consulting for 1:1 deployment and network builds, and says he is "into all things technology - networking, 3D printing, builds, and much more." He has been very active in the Mobility Management board here on the community since joining the community just after we launched in August.


I asked Jared a few questions: 


Tell us a little about yourself and how you got involved in MDM

I got involved in MDM when I received my first managed iPad for school. I was a fan of how administrators were able to push mandatory apps, but allow us to pick apps we wanted on our devices. I found Meraki when I was searching for an MDM to learn. Meraki was free at the time and was a great tool to learn with. 


How does the community help you in your day-to-day work?

The community helps me with my day to day work when I have questions or just want to discuss ideas. Also, the ability to discuss feature requests is great and just shows how much MDM/EMM needs have evolved in just a few years.


What recommendations do you have for other young people interested in technology?

Do not be afraid of failing your first time trying something! Also, get involved in communities like this to ask questions and learn.


Anything else you'd like to tell us?

I would like to thank everyone in the Meraki Community for sharing and helping! Also, shout out to the Meraki employees and staff who make this community possible and participate in discussions!



Thanks, Jared!
