Community.

I wanted to take a moment to talk about the community and share the ones I participate in most. If you’re like me, I find a lot of value in being able to conversate, brain-storm, and dork around with people who are doing the same things I’m doing. Sometimes, that project you’ve been working on for weeks just needed that fresh pair of eyes to end shed some light and share some insight.
Above anything I'm likely to post on this blog, these resources should be the thing to take home.

Reddit
Oh boy, do I spend a lot of time on Reddit. Most of that time isn’t productive, but when it is, these are the subreddits I use:
www.reddit.com/r/SCCM
www.reddit.com/r/sysadmin
www.reddit.com/r/homelab
www.reddit.com/r/PowerShell

Slack
Slack is a modern chat/workplace platform. You can use it on the web, on your phone, or with a desktop app. The WinAdmins Slack has over 4,000 members, and 40 channels dedicated to different Windows Admin focused topics.

Twitter
While I’m new to Twitter, it didn’t take me very long to understand the value of being able to interact with other admins in such an immediate and open way. Now, I’m following all the MVPs I can think of that contribute to the #ConfigMgr community, as well as a lot of the #ConfigMgr product team, and it’s helped me stay afloat in this rapid iteration world we live in.
