Drinks with IT is our series of episodes where IT professionals guest star on the podcast, we crack open a cold one and let the conversation flow naturally. Our goal with these chats is to let you be a fly on the wall during our conversations so you can get an idea of the types of things IT professionals talk and care about.
In this episode of Drinks with IT, we were joined by an IT professional from Canada. Here are some things we talked about!
Fireworks ⇨ Our podcast guest has the perfect view of the neighborhood fireworks from his house in the mountains. As long as the fireworks don’t get too close to the house, everything is safe.
Distinct Smell of Smoke ⇨ If you were around during the Pyros and IT episode, then this might sound a bit familiar. All IT professionals have a fear of one very distinct smell: smoke from overheating computers or systems.
LAN Parties ⇨ This is a gathering of people with computers or compatible game consoles where a local area network (LAN) connection is established between the devices in order for people to game together. Doritos and salsa are a must for these gaming sessions.
Productivity ⇨ As long as you are accomplishing what you need to, the amount of time that you are at work should not matter. Take smokers and parents for instance. They leave work or take frequent breaks, making them more productive during the time that they are at work in order to make up for lost time.
Entrepreneurship Vs. Corporate Jobs ⇨ In an entrepreneurial job, workers have more freedom and flexibility but more risk. In a corporate job, workers have more routine and time-sensitive schedules but have the reassurance of a constant paycheck.
We loved chatting about these topics and more! Listen to this week’s episode of Humanize IT to get the full conversation.
