Get Social with DevCentral

That title sounds so 2009 but let’s go with it anyway. #Flashback…no, #Throwback…no, how about #TinkerTuesday? Is there such a thing? (There is.)

#DevCentral will be ramping up our social activities in 2018 and we wanted to share some of the media channels you can join to stay connected and engaged with the community.

dctwitterDid you know that the Twitter bird has a name? It’s Larry. And while dc’s blue ball logo doesn’t have a name, you can find your @devcentral team members @psilvas, @jasonrahm, and @JohnWagnon on twitter sharing their technology insights along with some personal daily happenings and thoughts. Stay connected for new articles, iRules, videos, the Agility Conference and earn additional DevCentral points for answering the question of the day!

Don’t feel like reading anything and prefer to watch stuff? Then head on over to our YouTube channel for hours of instructional videos from our ‘Make it Work’ series, cool tech tips along with the awesome Lightboard Lessons. Lightboard Lessons are one of our most popular pieces of content and by subscribing to our channel, you’ll get the first alerts via email that a new video has published. You’ll probably even get to watch the video before it even posts to DevCentral. That’s right, early access.

dc linkedinPrefer to hang out with the LinkedIn crowd? While the F5 Certified! Professionals LinkedIn group is very active, the F5 DevCentral LinkedIn Group has been a little dormant recently so we’re looking to gear that up again also. With a little over a 1000 members, it’s a great way to converse with other members as we march toward the 12,000+ participants in Ken’s group.

When DevCentral started back in 2003, it was one of the original ‘social’ community sites when social media was still in its infancy. Members range from beginning to advanced devs, industry thought leaders, and F5 MVPs.

I’m also aware that there are BIG-IP discussions on Stack overflow, repos on github, the F5 Facebook page, MVP Kevin Davies’ Telegram F5 Announce and others. Where else should we engage with you and where should we be more active? Hit us up with the hash, #whereisdevcentral and we’ll meet you there.

Peter is an F5 evangelist for security, IoT, mobile and core. His background in theatre brings the slightly theatrical and fairly technical together to cover training, writing, speaking, along with overall product evangelism for F5. He's also produced over 350 videos and recorded over 50 audio whitepapers. After working in Professional Theatre for 10 years, Peter decided to change careers. Starting out with a small VAR selling Netopia routers and the Instant Internet box, he soon became one of the first six Internet Specialists for AT&T managing customers on the original ATT WorldNet network.

Now having his Telco background he moved to Verio to focus on access, IP security along with web hosting. After losing a deal to Exodus Communications (now Savvis) for technical reasons, the customer still wanted Peter as their local SE contact so Exodus made him an offer he couldn’t refuse. As only the third person hired in the Midwest, he helped Exodus grow from an executive suite to two enormous datacenters in the Chicago land area working with such customers as Ticketmaster, Rolling Stone, uBid, Orbitz, Best Buy and others.

Writer, speaker and Video Host, he's also been in such plays as The Glass Menagerie, All’s Well That Ends Well, Cinderella and others.
