This week's episode of Conversations with Tech Experts features Jim Dettman, Experts Exchange Fellow and President of Online Computer Services of WNY. Jim joins Experts Exchange CEO Randy Redberg and Director of Bus. Dev. Thomas Bernal to discuss how a tech expert can give back to their community. They start the show by revisiting Randy and Jim's trip to ride motorcycles in Pismo Dunes, California. Jim goes on to tell us how giving back to the tech community is something he learned at an early age, and how important it can be to pay it forward. He also dives into his "no one is an expert at everything" mentality toward giving back. Jim tells the crew what it takes to maintain Microsoft MVP status, and gives his advice to young professionals trying to grow their careers. He finishes with his big idea: always keep learning.
Our community of experts have been thoroughly vetted for their expertise and industry experience. Experts with Gold status have received one of our highest-level Expert Awards, which recognize experts for their valuable contributions.
