VCDX Panel Discussion – VTUG 2015 Winter Warmer

VCDX-merch-300x82

Last week I had the pleasure of speaking at the New England VTUG Winter Warmer for the fourth or fifth time.  As always the Patriots were practicing on the field for the third year in a row, which was cool.  The session I did was a panel discussion with some local VCDX holders to talk a little about how and why they decided to pursue their VCDX.  This is the first in what I hope will be more interview style videos.  I plan on having some recording gear at PEX as well to capture some more short videos with existing OR current VCDX’s so be sure to find me!

Special thanks to Luigi Danakos for putting the video together on short notice!
