Andy Whiteside: they’re here posting our videos so all the podcasts for the last year or so have a video piece of it that are now going on this integrity YouTube channel, so all the little visual things we’ve been doing start to become a little more relevant.

00:01:21.660 –> 00:01:24.960
Chris Feeney: awesome perfect I look forward to that I am.

13
00:01:25.980 –> 00:01:35.640
Chris Feeney: I have a youngster who just finished college last week so he’s kind of in the interviewing sort of preparing thing so i’m like all right well.

14
00:01:36.690 –> 00:01:40.410
Chris Feeney: Maybe there’s opportunity for him to get some experience, while he’s waiting for that big interview.

15
00:01:41.430 –> 00:01:51.450
Chris Feeney: With the he studied Intel and security so he’s kind of looking at like military intelligence that type of thing federal federal type stuff so.

00:01:52.230 –> 00:01:53.340
Chris Feeney: that’s what those things.

17
00:01:53.340 –> 00:01:56.670
Andy Whiteside: are so not cyber security or cyber.

18
00:01:57.690 –> 00:02:04.860
Chris Feeney: Not right now, he didn’t see didn’t go and study you know cybersecurity specifically, although they definitely touched on that in his in his studies.

19
00:02:05.970 –> 00:02:06.480
Chris Feeney: But.

20
00:02:07.740 –> 00:02:11.190
Chris Feeney: That may be ultimately a path that you know, for his career.

21
00:02:12.150 –> 00:02:13.290
Chris Feeney: Yes, I was just talking to my.

22
00:02:13.350 –> 00:02:18.780
Andy Whiteside: My son on the hallway while I was waiting on my daughter to read the keys to my office to give you a little more insight into what just happened.

23
00:02:19.950 –> 00:02:26.760
Andy Whiteside: And you know we’re talking about you know what what he wants to do i’ve got them taking a bunch of certifications because that helps the INTEGRA.

24
00:02:27.180 –> 00:02:32.550
Andy Whiteside: And gets them exposed, all the same time, helps them build up our partnership with different vendors.

25
00:02:33.270 –> 00:02:39.330
Andy Whiteside: And I just i’m trying to fish out of them what they want to do course her freshman in college so we’ve got they got a while.

26
00:02:40.200 –> 00:02:52.050
Andy Whiteside: But i’m trying to find out and i’m implying to them, you know do what you want to do, but get into the key parts of technology, like cyber security and you’re going to make money for at least a little while if not forever.

27
00:02:53.850 –> 00:03:04.290
Andy Whiteside: I made a joke about parks and recreations as an example which is no joke to anybody who’s doing it that’s if it’s what you want to do it’s what you want to do, but I also told him, you know go make some money and technology, and you can.

28
00:03:04.830 –> 00:03:15.210
Andy Whiteside: organize groups to go help the national parks or state parks, you can you can find a way to do both follow your passion, but also follow follow the money.

29
00:03:16.290 –> 00:03:18.450
Chris Feeney: There you go so yeah.

30
00:03:18.930 –> 00:03:22.740
Andy Whiteside: Or you can be like seven, and you can follow your passion in the mind, all the same time.

31
00:03:23.820 –> 00:03:24.720
Sebastien Perusat: that’s even better.

32
00:03:25.260 –> 00:03:26.400
Chris Feeney: Be passionate with your money.

33
00:03:29.100 –> 00:03:29.910
Andy Whiteside: You know what i’ll say.

34
00:03:30.720 –> 00:03:32.010
Andy Whiteside: For the three of us.

35
00:03:33.390 –> 00:03:44.970
Andy Whiteside: I think, knowing the three of us, I think we’ve done exactly that right we’re doing something we find exciting and get getting energized to get up every day, and do, including technology podcasts like this.

36
00:03:46.170 –> 00:03:50.730
Andy Whiteside: And we also make a living doing it, I think that’s something to be thankful for.

37
00:03:51.570 –> 00:03:55.830
Sebastien Perusat: Oh yes, doing something that I was doing as a hobby when I was extremely young.

38
00:03:56.400 –> 00:04:04.020
Sebastien Perusat: Again, just say that i’m extremely thankful for everyone who gave me the chance to work in that area without having studied, etc.

39
00:04:04.320 –> 00:04:17.250
Sebastien Perusat: Because that’s something which is not such common in Germany or in France so that’s something where i’m extremely thankful for all the people enabled me to do that, but it’s definitely fun and i’m doing some work with that that so really enjoying.

40
00:04:18.390 –> 00:04:25.710
Andy Whiteside: So, Sam you’re trying to say you can’t you can’t do it alone right you gotta you gotta follow your head in your heart and you also need a little help and some friends, which.

41
00:04:26.160 –> 00:04:36.510
Andy Whiteside: You know, for a lot of people that that networking that human networking element of all this is probably something that’s woefully overlooked and it’s not a trivial thing.

42
00:04:37.170 –> 00:04:46.110
Sebastien Perusat: And don’t be boring to make mistakes, because that’s something that will happen by its own so don’t be worried just make the mistakes and learn from it yeah.

43
00:04:46.140 –> 00:04:49.530
Chris Feeney: Right, as long as those mistakes don’t take down the Internet so.

44
00:04:53.970 –> 00:04:54.330
Chris Feeney: What.

45
00:04:54.540 –> 00:04:56.310
Chris Feeney: Is it a venture that DNS change.

46
00:04:57.060 –> 00:04:57.240
yeah.

47
00:04:59.670 –> 00:04:59.910
Andy Whiteside: well.

48
00:05:00.930 –> 00:05:07.890
Andy Whiteside: I think that’s a really good segue said today, we want to talk in the spirit of holidays in the spirit of careers in the spirit of helping people.

49
00:05:08.670 –> 00:05:20.310
Andy Whiteside: Get connected with each other, the the eye gel community and the latest with the Community in terms of updates did you have something specific to share for a visual or do we want to just talk through it.

50
00:05:20.760 –> 00:05:27.570
Sebastien Perusat: No, we can definitely good to the visual and speak about that so i’ll just share my screen if you make it to our.

51
00:05:28.620 –> 00:05:30.330
Sebastien Perusat: moderator row that would be.

52
00:05:30.390 –> 00:05:38.700
Sebastien Perusat: Perfect I just met let’s say appropriate some some retrospective Chris for what the agile Community what we did also the Center of this here.

53
00:05:39.090 –> 00:05:43.770
Sebastien Perusat: And just covering maybe something that people are not knowing from.

54
00:05:44.490 –> 00:05:55.530
Sebastien Perusat: From our audience, because if you think of the azure Community you might think of asking a question and getting an answer that’s right and that’s definitely a huge part of our daily business.

55
00:05:56.010 –> 00:06:04.890
Sebastien Perusat: But I added some value to that and that’s something that I will just bring us through just a short presentation not 35 flights just six in a row.

56
00:06:05.790 –> 00:06:18.120
Sebastien Perusat: With a few figures and numbers report that I did for our today’s podcast so we’ll just start the screen sharing and the presentation mode, so you should see now the presentation and not the presentation mode right.

57
00:06:18.840 –> 00:06:19.050
Andy Whiteside: With.

58
00:06:19.350 –> 00:06:21.510
Andy Whiteside: The presenter mode it doesn’t matter for the sake of.

59
00:06:21.510 –> 00:06:22.140
Sebastien Perusat: This okay.

60
00:06:22.290 –> 00:06:22.890
Andy Whiteside: It doesn’t matter.

61
00:06:23.400 –> 00:06:27.270
Sebastien Perusat: We can definitely switch that one so let’s start so.

62
00:06:27.450 –> 00:06:31.260
Sebastien Perusat: What I did is I created a short summary about the what the other community is doing.

63
00:06:31.290 –> 00:06:39.180
Sebastien Perusat: And one big part of our daily business like I said answering questions and creating content but which kind of content.

64
00:06:40.170 –> 00:06:46.560
Sebastien Perusat: we’re doing monthly meetup that’s something that some people are not knowing because they’re justin’s agile community in slack and.

65
00:06:46.800 –> 00:06:56.070
Sebastien Perusat: throwing out natural so actually Ms question, maybe, or maybe answering question by themselves, but we also organizing on a monthly basis and meet up where.

66
00:06:56.400 –> 00:07:11.730
Sebastien Perusat: We have topics covered from external windows from internal people where we are explaining teaching maybe sometimes also showing actual use case of our product and our ecosystem.

67
00:07:12.780 –> 00:07:19.620
Sebastien Perusat: But, just in case, if someone is not knowing that you don’t have to be agile Community Member to.

68
00:07:20.220 –> 00:07:31.050
Sebastien Perusat: To be informed about that monthly meetups you don’t even have to be registered, if you want to join just register for the meeting and then, if you are happy just join us on the agile community itself.

69
00:07:31.470 –> 00:07:36.420
Andy Whiteside: He said, let me Let me set the stage a little bit as you continue to go through this i’ll give you a quick story I.

70
00:07:37.140 –> 00:07:40.920
Andy Whiteside: met with several people recently about the citrix user group community.

71
00:07:41.280 –> 00:07:49.350
Andy Whiteside: And they said okay Andy since you complain so much, how should we do this, and I just simply said go talk to i’ll go look at what I just know and they’re great example.

72
00:07:49.590 –> 00:07:59.190
Andy Whiteside: of how the company I gel is investing in their community and it reciprocates across the Community and it’s the way to do it and just kudos to Jen and Doug and you.

73
00:07:59.760 –> 00:08:11.640
Andy Whiteside: and the Members for what you guys have done and the main thing to me is your head and your heart was in the right place as to where it came from, not just try to make it a business initiative.

74
00:08:12.330 –> 00:08:19.560
Sebastien Perusat: Yes, and that’s definitely from, thank you for that feedback me because we’re not trying to compete with any kind of support or something like that right, we are.

75
00:08:20.070 –> 00:08:27.720
Sebastien Perusat: Just yeah sharing our love, I would say or passion with our products was our members and the Members are giving.

76
00:08:28.290 –> 00:08:38.520
Sebastien Perusat: Also, a few things back to us not only giving answers but also giving blog article so sometimes I will cover a bit later on, but I definitely agree it’s something extremely unique at the moment.

77
00:08:41.910 –> 00:08:54.210
Sebastien Perusat: On the next 10 what we have is that something that we are covering thanks to INTEGRA on a bi weekly basis on our podcast the so called tactic choose the video so just short 10 to 15 minute.

78
00:08:55.410 –> 00:08:59.670
Sebastien Perusat: tutorial that we are showing mostly on a weekly basis, sometimes on a bi weekly basis.

79
00:09:00.750 –> 00:09:06.870
Sebastien Perusat: With some content coming from the Community, also from customer related situations where i’m still a little bit.

80
00:09:07.710 –> 00:09:18.420
Sebastien Perusat: involved in and i’m seeing here is this topic is covered in our kb, yes, but maybe not in the depth that we need or that our customer base is needing so that’s something if you do not know that.

81
00:09:19.080 –> 00:09:28.050
Sebastien Perusat: We have a website, which is called videos that as your community.com where you can use any kind of content will not in without being registered.

82
00:09:28.530 –> 00:09:35.640
Sebastien Perusat: So we are doing, new content there, and if you need something on that you’re seeing in the clinics and take our podcast that.

83
00:09:35.970 –> 00:09:47.790
Sebastien Perusat: We don’t explain enough or you might need that’s a deep dive into specific topic just please reach out to me via email or via slack or via linkedin and it will be happy to cover your topic with some other people.

84
00:09:48.840 –> 00:09:58.380
Andy Whiteside: So, said that when you got the kb which applies you’ve got the little the blog that you write up the associates the video of tech tip Tuesday.

85
00:09:59.490 –> 00:10:13.560
Andy Whiteside: Which is really where you need to go to learn specifically and see what’s going on, and then we covered in this podcast with additional context from myself and Chris where we kind of ask you questions and get even deeper into what you’re showing in these videos yeah exactly.

86
00:10:13.800 –> 00:10:26.430
Sebastien Perusat: that’s something where we are learning, also from you from Chris and Andy because the question you are asking mean that something wasn’t covered enough maybe in the detective juicy video so i’m trying to adapt that.

87
00:10:26.910 –> 00:10:37.080
Sebastien Perusat: On the fly more or less for the next for the next recordings, just in case because that’s something that did mentioned so often, but we haven’t obviously natural Academy.

88
00:10:37.560 –> 00:10:55.080
Sebastien Perusat: The agile Academy, is not what we’re doing and the tactic juicy to there we are just covering one specific need one specific topic without any transition from another one that the Academy really brings you from eight to that from one to 100 and from zero to hero.

89
00:10:56.280 –> 00:11:03.240
Sebastien Perusat: In our whole ecosystem was a really great red line between one topic to the other going through every.

90
00:11:03.660 –> 00:11:16.860
Sebastien Perusat: product that we are protective Tuesday videos has definitely absolute different kind of approach and obviously you don’t get any kind of of certifications out of it just how to do that let’s get the video out of it.

91
00:11:17.100 –> 00:11:24.330
Chris Feeney: yeah just a comment on academy so from, from my perspective, I always say my focus is is on enabling our partners.

92
00:11:25.980 –> 00:11:26.460
Chris Feeney: and

93
00:11:28.020 –> 00:11:29.460
Chris Feeney: The way we view academy is.

94
00:11:30.660 –> 00:11:41.070
Chris Feeney: It was an opportunity, as it got launched to sort of pull in the best practices sort of the guidelines, the blueprints, if you will, for the agile technology, knowing that it’s a.

95
00:11:41.460 –> 00:11:49.770
Chris Feeney: No way possible, a certification course is going to be able to cover everything and but at least having a baseline of understanding of sort of.

96
00:11:50.250 –> 00:12:03.540
Chris Feeney: Digital technology in and of itself at the the basic and then the advanced level as you get into that and then having a forum, like the Community where you can gather together and share really cool things.

97
00:12:05.910 –> 00:12:10.740
Chris Feeney: it’s just as continuing education, and I think we’ve seen it certainly with the V mugs and the.

98
00:12:11.610 –> 00:12:20.010
Chris Feeney: CG sees and stuff like that that’s kind of the general idea here is, you know, but we would want partners and many respects we actually require.

99
00:12:20.550 –> 00:12:28.230
Chris Feeney: them to have that base level of certification, but that’s just the starting point, get definitely involved with the Community.

100
00:12:28.650 –> 00:12:37.740
Chris Feeney: attend those monthly meetups watch this tech tip tuesday’s listen to our podcast you know just maintain that knowledge, if you really want to embrace it Joe and everything that we’re about.

101
00:12:40.110 –> 00:12:51.540
Sebastien Perusat: Exactly I mean, sometimes we have to react quite quickly to it’s a pandemic situation new work from home step new vpn connectivity or whatever.

102
00:12:51.990 –> 00:13:07.320
Sebastien Perusat: And if you think back about last year we created a said modest two weeks, maybe after the first cause hit us to make an ice tutorial online things to.

103
00:13:08.010 –> 00:13:13.650
Sebastien Perusat: attach manic or last block now, or if I kraton for the German speaking part of.

104
00:13:14.100 –> 00:13:23.580
Sebastien Perusat: presets were able to deliver that content like I said in two weeks, then we had a hardening guide, which came then out of it, because people were asked, now we have ice in place.

105
00:13:23.940 –> 00:13:29.670
Sebastien Perusat: Now we have a Detroit how to use it on a Roger was no no ecosystem now, we would like to make it secure.

106
00:13:30.270 –> 00:13:37.170
Sebastien Perusat: And that’s something which is not part of the Academy, because we are touching operating system settings we are touching.

107
00:13:38.010 –> 00:13:51.480
Sebastien Perusat: services that are not sometimes part of it, but more part of the Linux world and that’s where the tactic use it as a monthly meetups definitely have maybe I would say most suitable and having just a kb article.

108
00:13:53.670 –> 00:14:04.110
Sebastien Perusat: That was just something I wanted to to mention, I mean, even if, most of our listeners, who are joining the podcast already knowing that we have detective QC videos, but I just wanted to throw it out just to.

109
00:14:05.430 –> 00:14:06.810
Sebastien Perusat: Just will keep me.

110
00:14:07.620 –> 00:14:15.630
Andy Whiteside: So said I think that’s great because no matter what it is, in my life, whether it’s fixing something in my car whether it’s changing out a filter on my.

111
00:14:16.230 –> 00:14:24.240
Andy Whiteside: You know my hood vince I i’d much rather just find a quick video that shows me what it is and how to do it and provides additional context.

112
00:14:24.630 –> 00:14:33.600
Andy Whiteside: Then, to go read a an article on the topic I almost get mad when I find an article I have to go try to decipher versus somebody just walk me through it on a video.

113
00:14:34.140 –> 00:14:47.700
Sebastien Perusat: I agree, say me, sometimes for some comments, like me, showing in the command line I prefer to have a document, but when it comes to something related to the graphical user interface, I prefer to have a video but that’s something which is.

114
00:14:47.700 –> 00:14:51.330
Chris Feeney: Just so I have to laugh here Danny with your comment there I.

115
00:14:51.360 –> 00:14:58.860
Chris Feeney: Totally i’m 100% there with you, because things i’ve learned, you know by I just happenstance right.

116
00:14:59.550 –> 00:15:09.270
Chris Feeney: If you ever go and you’re getting your air chain oil change in your car and they’re saying things like you know your cabin air filter needs to be replaced oh that’s going to be $70 like okay.

117
00:15:09.870 –> 00:15:14.280
Chris Feeney: And you realize after you just sort of do your own research that it’s a $20 part in a five minute job.

118
00:15:14.730 –> 00:15:23.430
Chris Feeney: And it’s very easily done for cars that actually have a cabin air filter, and so I actually was at jiffy lube the other day, going to state inspection and this guy had that.

119
00:15:24.090 –> 00:15:31.920
Chris Feeney: That tech came in and gave him that same recommendation I was sitting there going to do, I tell them hey just drive across the street advance auto parts.

120
00:15:34.530 –> 00:15:36.660
Chris Feeney: yeah you have to yeah YouTube has helped.

121
00:15:36.660 –> 00:15:42.480
Chris Feeney: me figure out how to do all kinds of things with with vehicles it’s amazing so.

122
00:15:42.840 –> 00:15:47.310
Andy Whiteside: The picture’s worth 1000 words I think a video with context, added to it’s worth a million words.

123
00:15:47.430 –> 00:15:52.080
Chris Feeney: yeah well, I actually had had a meeting yesterday we’re actually going on, we were looking at a.

124
00:15:52.770 –> 00:15:58.260
Chris Feeney: A configuration we didn’t know is technically maybe possible but we’ve uncovered it now, a couple times.

125
00:15:58.950 –> 00:16:12.060
Chris Feeney: A year with with an improviser thing and we’re like oh let’s investigate that further and so i’m going to record a video and just sort of dig into a little bit more and and it could be a new thing that we develop jointly so.

126
00:16:13.650 –> 00:16:26.310
Chris Feeney: we’ll see hopefully it will be i’m I have high hopes it can be done so, but it’s something that sort of popped out of nowhere like huh that’s interesting so stay tuned hopefully more to come on that yeah.

127
00:16:29.940 –> 00:16:30.840
Andy Whiteside: I said what else.

128
00:16:32.160 –> 00:16:33.360
Andy Whiteside: Number one out of six.

129
00:16:33.810 –> 00:16:34.110
yeah.

130
00:16:36.450 –> 00:16:37.080
Chris Feeney: like to talk.

131
00:16:37.140 –> 00:16:38.580
Andy Whiteside: i’m we’re on.

132
00:16:38.850 –> 00:16:45.240
Andy Whiteside: we’re on slide number one out of six and we’ve got listeners now you got a good job, communicating what it is you’re covering, without a doubt right.

133
00:16:45.750 –> 00:16:53.910
Sebastien Perusat: So, then, we have the guests meetup so we already covering them from from time to time, sometimes it’s something that we are delivering only in private groups.

134
00:16:54.300 –> 00:16:59.670
Sebastien Perusat: or so called a great guest meetups where we have people from from agile, like our cto joining.

135
00:17:00.090 –> 00:17:12.000
Sebastien Perusat: covering the yearly recap, of what I will deliver to the market, what the outcome would be in 2022 etc, etc, so that’s something that you will also get on the videos that agile community.com.

136
00:17:12.720 –> 00:17:22.770
Sebastien Perusat: was important to me, especially that we gather feedback and the agile community, and we are not only throw it away them in the garbage and hoping that someone would read it now.

137
00:17:23.160 –> 00:17:32.250
Sebastien Perusat: we’ll get it back into the company so that’s something where it’s pretty unique, I would say, in the end user computing space, maybe not unique, but quite around maybe.

138
00:17:33.270 –> 00:17:44.820
Sebastien Perusat: That you feedback have a direct influence of our product it doesn’t mean that everything that you are giving us will be implemented in a couple of days, a couple of hours or a couple of weeks, maybe.

139
00:17:45.270 –> 00:17:50.670
Sebastien Perusat: But it would at least give guidance to our product management to our product marketing sometimes.

140
00:17:51.060 –> 00:17:59.670
Sebastien Perusat: That there is a specific need for specific feature, where there is not a big opportunity behind that but if 100 people asking the same thing.

141
00:18:00.240 –> 00:18:09.180
Sebastien Perusat: And there may be, not an enterprise level customers gives us the ability to see that this specific feature might be interesting for other people.

142
00:18:09.900 –> 00:18:15.300
Sebastien Perusat: And that’s something that we are doing by using the idols ids that are committee.com website.

143
00:18:16.050 –> 00:18:24.330
Sebastien Perusat: You might not know that, but we have our future proposal tool which is not, and I can just repeat it not an alternative to a feature request not at all.

144
00:18:25.020 –> 00:18:38.610
Sebastien Perusat: it’s just gathering feedback from you guys out there, if you want something that is not implemented in our operating system and you’re not be able to open a feature request just throughout your ID there and people can upload and don’t want that feature.

145
00:18:39.870 –> 00:18:47.520
Sebastien Perusat: All the people that are coming from all over the world and i’m bringing it that feedback back into the company in a be weekly call with rpm.

146
00:18:48.120 –> 00:19:01.050
Sebastien Perusat: And they are, we have a task list, where we are covering your questions, your needs and trying to see if we can put it on the backlog doesn’t mean it will happen every time, but you will see a bit later on, that we have, I would say quite.

147
00:19:02.070 –> 00:19:05.130
Sebastien Perusat: High amount of requests will went accepted.

148
00:19:06.870 –> 00:19:13.650
Andy Whiteside: You know, a comment here about ideal, the company in general, based on its size and position in the industry.

149
00:19:14.850 –> 00:19:22.560
Andy Whiteside: Early on, and even still today, I think the highest compliment I could give I gel as a company is you guys listen to your users.

150
00:19:23.040 –> 00:19:37.350
Andy Whiteside: And because of your nimbleness because of your size, because of your origin because of your humbleness you listen and adapt as your users your customers your partners need you to listen to that.

151
00:19:38.370 –> 00:19:50.280
Chris Feeney: yeah I I would second that I were small enough now sort of understanding when I came here, I had been with the company that grew rapidly, I would say tenfold in size from when I first started.

152
00:19:50.910 –> 00:20:01.950
Chris Feeney: And then coming here, trying to understand how things got done obviously for those listening our our development is you know, primarily in Europe in the UK and Germany.

153
00:20:03.120 –> 00:20:09.270
Chris Feeney: And so being American based here for Andy and i’m certainly not not said but.

154
00:20:10.710 –> 00:20:21.930
Chris Feeney: Communication right there’s a time difference and so understanding sort of you know how things get done what’s the process involved what i’ve learned is that you know, in the world of product management, there are certain.

155
00:20:24.270 –> 00:20:33.360
Chris Feeney: frameworks that people could follow I got trained in a pragmatic marketing sort of framework where you get ideas like this, this was talking about.

156
00:20:34.410 –> 00:20:40.410
Chris Feeney: And you kind of as a as one people, one person asking is interesting, you get 10 like oh that’s even more interesting.

157
00:20:41.040 –> 00:20:56.100
Chris Feeney: And then your gut kind of starts I tell you that maybe there’s something more here, and you probably know that there’s probably 30 people out there, maybe only 10 have spoken up, but having platforms like ideas at agenda Community calm to kind of gauge and get people to vote on it.

158
00:20:57.120 –> 00:21:06.390
Chris Feeney: kind of gives you a sense of which direction the product should take, and then all that ends up lining up to where resources get assigned to to make something happen so.

159
00:21:07.200 –> 00:21:14.340
Chris Feeney: Keep the ideas common, certainly if you have questions or have ideas and you’re not sure if somebody else’s asked about it, we can research that for you.

160
00:21:15.390 –> 00:21:20.310
Chris Feeney: This is not the only place, you can throw out product ideas there’s other places, we may be tracking that.

161
00:21:21.690 –> 00:21:32.760
Chris Feeney: But it’s it’s good to understand that the similar process, I saw at my prior company is is more or less being used you kind of pull these things in you look at the business case you figure out what your resources are and.

162
00:21:34.140 –> 00:21:36.510
Chris Feeney: And then you you start making some decisions and.

163
00:21:38.520 –> 00:21:40.980
Chris Feeney: But it is cool to be able to have a company that can innovate.

164
00:21:42.180 –> 00:21:47.370
Chris Feeney: Sometimes rather quickly, sometimes it might be a little slower than when people like but you know.

165
00:21:47.610 –> 00:21:56.460
Andy Whiteside: You you did I think what’s something that’s a little bit of a fallacy, especially in the world of technology, you attributed to size, I think it, I think it really matters on.

166
00:21:56.940 –> 00:22:04.350
Andy Whiteside: The origin of the company and who the company tries to stay, true to themselves, because in technology world right, especially software.

167
00:22:04.800 –> 00:22:24.240
Andy Whiteside: it’s a change for one’s a change for many all at same time and that’s really part of, I think that the German the eye gel it’s in the DNA of the company is to be someone who listens and really exploits for their own business needs the needs of their community but it starts with listening.

168
00:22:24.870 –> 00:22:27.240
Chris Feeney: yeah I what I meant by size, I guess, to me.

169
00:22:28.800 –> 00:22:36.300
Chris Feeney: um any organization is going to have some disciplined process, you know typically that it’s followed, you know.

170
00:22:37.500 –> 00:22:38.040
Chris Feeney: and

171
00:22:39.810 –> 00:22:45.270
Chris Feeney: And sometimes people may not may think that a large company let’s take I don’t know, an IBM or something sorry guys.

172
00:22:45.300 –> 00:22:46.170
Chris Feeney: let’s just click on you guys.

173
00:22:46.200 –> 00:22:47.880
Andy Whiteside: let’s use let’s use Dell let’s use.

174
00:22:48.000 –> 00:22:49.410
Chris Feeney: them right yeah.

175
00:22:49.980 –> 00:23:00.240
Andy Whiteside: Let me, let me influence what you’re gonna say slightly size creates arrogance arrogance creates stop listening and you start telling people what they need, and that is wrong.

176
00:23:01.230 –> 00:23:07.470
Chris Feeney: right and it could be that the person that’s saying that may not necessarily know how to get things done internally.

177
00:23:10.170 –> 00:23:15.000
Chris Feeney: It could be a variety of things right, I mean but, but it could be the just general sense of.

178
00:23:16.830 –> 00:23:20.580
Chris Feeney: You know we’ll we’ll move on, we need to move where the elephant right.

179
00:23:22.080 –> 00:23:36.450
Chris Feeney: or there’s somebody that you know says, you know what I I, I know, and I believe in this i’m going to try to do what I can to kind of make this happen, and just a matter of understanding how to navigate within that organization and so.

180
00:23:38.490 –> 00:23:39.660
Chris Feeney: The less number of people use.

181
00:23:40.710 –> 00:23:52.140
Chris Feeney: It can be the advantage, sometimes not it just depends, but I think, from my experience certainly here, there are some really, really cool people that definitely want to listen to what customers want, I think, at the end of the day.

182
00:23:53.040 –> 00:23:57.420
Chris Feeney: The developers want to know that the product or coding is making a difference.

183
00:23:58.050 –> 00:24:17.040
Chris Feeney: And it has an impact right and so being able to bring that to the development team help them show that hey the time you’re spent in that world of coding it actually is translating to this, you know, maybe it’s a more streamlined thing at this industry or whatever it could be or.

184
00:24:18.270 –> 00:24:28.290
Chris Feeney: I don’t know it just that’s the type of thing to be able to map it to and then obviously give them that feedback when when that thing that they built is is having a true true success so.

185
00:24:28.830 –> 00:24:33.990
Andy Whiteside: I break it down to this easy and then we’ll we’ll let’s continue on here but it’s it’s.

186
00:24:35.370 –> 00:24:47.010
Andy Whiteside: humility versus arrogance and whether you’re listening, or whether you’re telling people and humility equals listening and I think that says a lot about I gels roots and where it currently still is.

187
00:24:50.730 –> 00:24:54.450
Andy Whiteside: Sam is the guy with the funky Christmas tree on your head and humility go ahead.

188
00:24:56.070 –> 00:24:58.560
Sebastien Perusat: i’ll just put the sign in front of you now.

189
00:24:59.670 –> 00:25:04.830
Sebastien Perusat: So coming back to the to the President August through quite right quick right now so.

190
00:25:05.310 –> 00:25:16.440
Sebastien Perusat: last thing I just wanted to share on that slide is the agile community.com slash hcl so that’s not the official already partner database, obviously, but if you have the feeling that.

191
00:25:16.860 –> 00:25:26.130
Sebastien Perusat: You want to contribute about hardware that to test on your own in your company or maybe because you heard that something worked with agile ios 11.

192
00:25:26.670 –> 00:25:33.780
Sebastien Perusat: PC free to put that on the hardware compatibility is website because it’s something that will have not only you, but other people.

193
00:25:34.080 –> 00:25:46.530
Sebastien Perusat: Looking for the same hardware and seeing if a specific wi fi dongle or specific bluetooth chips that are specific hardware was tested by you, with our address, since we cannot cover any device.

194
00:25:46.860 –> 00:25:54.600
Sebastien Perusat: It doesn’t mean that it’s fully featured in a fully tested by by agile, but it means that the that someone out that out there.

195
00:25:55.080 –> 00:26:09.030
Sebastien Perusat: detail that device was not a product and it went successful or not so just wanted to share that because it’s extremely important to share that we are not only giving feedback to you, but we also getting some feedback from the field.

196
00:26:10.170 –> 00:26:10.680
Sebastien Perusat: and

197
00:26:11.700 –> 00:26:18.480
Sebastien Perusat: On the other hand, what we have is because we are also wanting you to join and to influence our roadmap.

198
00:26:18.810 –> 00:26:29.610
Sebastien Perusat: We had the ability to involve a couple of keeper beginning of the year 2021 to join some early access programs, I will explain a bit later on which one it was.

199
00:26:30.030 –> 00:26:38.070
Sebastien Perusat: But in the meantime, if you see the logo on the screen, if you are not seeing it, I will just say that was the eric’s wanted in 20 from in computing so the raspberry pi device.

200
00:26:38.640 –> 00:26:53.250
Sebastien Perusat: That will alter beginning of the year that something that we also covered in the agile community, so we sent out some devices people could tell us give feedback about features missing features wanted features and we try to integrate it before we had the general release date.

201
00:26:54.180 –> 00:27:03.480
Andy Whiteside: it’s it’s simply a message of you’re not alone you’re in this together, and some of the people you’re in it with because it’s the Community don’t have.

202
00:27:04.890 –> 00:27:08.430
Andy Whiteside: initiatives that are outside the scope of Community exactly.

203
00:27:09.870 –> 00:27:21.660
Sebastien Perusat: So going then into the last slide of the general presentation, so we have the block is from the blog itself, we are getting topics out of it, that we are covering and the exact statics and take our podcast.

204
00:27:22.470 –> 00:27:30.300
Sebastien Perusat: But sometimes it’s just a general documentation coming from duck from agile Community Member that doesn’t mean that this has to be an agile.

205
00:27:30.780 –> 00:27:45.930
Sebastien Perusat: Employee not at all just members went through a specific process and wanted to share that document, without having the need to create a kb article out of it with the world so that’s what we are calling, also on the blog side from the agile Community website.

206
00:27:46.980 –> 00:27:55.470
Sebastien Perusat: Then we’re already covered that in an earlier podcast since slack as a black box where search engines, do not have access.

207
00:27:55.830 –> 00:28:01.530
Sebastien Perusat: We have the agile archive where we are anonymizing the content coming inside of slack.

208
00:28:01.920 –> 00:28:13.170
Sebastien Perusat: In putting it in front of it’s a Google or whatever search bar that we have, so if you’re searching for specific behavior on Google start page, whatever your search engine is looking for you will.

209
00:28:14.070 –> 00:28:20.850
Sebastien Perusat: probably get a hit on the agile archive where we can then building directly to the thread into the agile community.

210
00:28:22.110 –> 00:28:29.340
Sebastien Perusat: Then we have some news i’m doing a monthly recap about what agile did deliver to lunch during that month but that’s it from it’s.

211
00:28:31.590 –> 00:28:39.360
Sebastien Perusat: Just because it’s something that I mentioned in every meetup we have technology partners technology partners who went through that already program that specific agile ready by.

212
00:28:39.960 –> 00:28:46.050
Sebastien Perusat: The end of the process, hitting the agile community, and we are creating specific channels for them.

213
00:28:46.590 –> 00:28:58.530
Sebastien Perusat: you’re not invited automatically because we do not want to make publicity advertisements, we are just saying, if you want to join, there is an announcement as soon as someone like an computing or liquid web giants.

214
00:28:58.980 –> 00:29:16.500
Sebastien Perusat: The agile Community please join that specific channel there, you will get insights about nfl arcades new documentation new releases from that wonder without having the feeling that you will get a lot of publicity, even if they can do that in downtown.

215
00:29:18.120 –> 00:29:25.650
Sebastien Perusat: Then going through the insider program, which is a hidden program that are a couple a bit later on upcoming podcast we have a yearly.

216
00:29:26.460 –> 00:29:37.740
Sebastien Perusat: revolt saying that people who posted a lot of things and a lot of questions shed a lot of content, our water to be inserted as an insert you get specific.

217
00:29:38.100 –> 00:29:42.480
Sebastien Perusat: Access to early access programs to private, but if you’re on the nda.

218
00:29:43.380 –> 00:29:54.210
Sebastien Perusat: Access to internal protocol that we actually ended with a pm, so you would get a huge amount of information, but you are we also be asked to give you feedback, so we had also a.

219
00:29:54.630 –> 00:30:06.540
Sebastien Perusat: session was generous and beginning of the year or just let’s say your thoughts session was mythos where he answered questions from that incident group that’s something or just wanted to share.

220
00:30:08.070 –> 00:30:17.640
Sebastien Perusat: The thing join us on the 7000 we are now 7500 just just checked a couple of minutes ago, so if you want, if you’re not already please Jonathan judged.

221
00:30:18.750 –> 00:30:28.050
Sebastien Perusat: According to the reports because that’s something that is pretty fun i’ll say you think about what the Community is doing you think about messages and i’m just sharing.

222
00:30:29.250 –> 00:30:41.970
Sebastien Perusat: Just sharing stats that I went through this morning, we have not 29,000 messages posted in the public chump so everything that you’re seeing on the agile community.

223
00:30:42.930 –> 00:30:56.970
Sebastien Perusat: it’s always compared to the previous year and, if you think about what happened last year it’s fun to see that we posted even more than last year we were expecting a bit last because Center work from home.

224
00:30:58.020 –> 00:31:06.090
Sebastien Perusat: period was let’s say already initiated already done, we weren’t expecting such a huge amount of messages, but still.

225
00:31:07.290 –> 00:31:14.730
Sebastien Perusat: We are answering your question, we are answering you need the so just giving you a rough over 29,000 messages this year.

226
00:31:15.720 –> 00:31:24.630
Sebastien Perusat: Then, how many people joined the other committee this year we started that end of 2017 if i’m not seeing something that’s totally wrong.

227
00:31:25.200 –> 00:31:48.240
Sebastien Perusat: And just this year so 2021 2200 people john there to committee, just so huge Thank you to all of you who joined us here you are not bought unsure about that you are actual people was our read body, so thank you for joining, just in case if you’re thinking if you’re.

228
00:31:50.100 –> 00:32:02.910
Sebastien Perusat: How to say it, the graph is going little bit lower than the last year we had at September, October last year, a second corbett’s way of hitting Europe and the US, so we have.

229
00:32:04.140 –> 00:32:14.640
Sebastien Perusat: Again, a huge amount of people join because they wanted to ask question, but we also had 5000 members until that gets 50 so we had huge.

230
00:32:15.930 –> 00:32:26.910
Sebastien Perusat: social media promotion for the attributes of a lot of people join, especially for that specific situation that’s the reason why we are still growing, but not as fast as last year.

231
00:32:28.170 –> 00:32:39.180
Sebastien Perusat: Then we have the total messages in public and private channels Just to give you a rough idea about what happened this year, if you think about private messages, so people asking for something which is not meant for.

232
00:32:39.660 –> 00:32:53.280
Sebastien Perusat: being published on the general public channel 96 so sorry 69 96,000 messages were posted this year that caused all the messages exchange in slack.

233
00:32:54.120 –> 00:33:05.640
Sebastien Perusat: So thank you for all the people who spent all our private mailboxes it was really a huge amount of messages that were to cover, thank you very much for that.

234
00:33:05.910 –> 00:33:06.660
Andy Whiteside: And said, I think.

235
00:33:06.720 –> 00:33:16.200
Andy Whiteside: that’s great that you’re using numbers and now more numbers but numbers to validate what looks and feels like it’s being successful yeah.

236
00:33:16.590 –> 00:33:20.340
Sebastien Perusat: Exactly I just would try to i’m coming to enhance.

237
00:33:22.380 –> 00:33:27.300
Sebastien Perusat: It the last slide before the ants are on less than the previous one.

238
00:33:27.870 –> 00:33:36.300
Sebastien Perusat: attempt for us respond to something that that created and reported beginning of this year, that means as soon as you ask a question on the other committee has a new thread.

239
00:33:37.260 –> 00:33:47.820
Sebastien Perusat: home at home how fast, will you get an answer to that not saying that it that it serves you your issue, not at all, but it is how fast, will you get any kind of feedback from data community.

240
00:33:48.840 –> 00:33:49.410
Sebastien Perusat: So.

241
00:33:50.580 –> 00:34:00.360
Sebastien Perusat: In our edge, it can say a two minutes, sometimes you something between five minutes or in the maximum it was 15 minutes and answer to your question.

242
00:34:00.900 –> 00:34:06.090
Sebastien Perusat: And that’s something that you can see, on the graph So you see the evolution, but even during the year.

243
00:34:06.510 –> 00:34:17.250
Sebastien Perusat: Obviously i’m not the only one, a lot of people are answering question if i’m not there and that’s definitely a big kudos to anyone at idle like RON like Chris.

244
00:34:17.820 –> 00:34:28.110
Sebastien Perusat: Like Chris bates to like josh but also all the people outside of agile all the standard Members were just there to have been all the agile Community members and and.

245
00:34:28.980 –> 00:34:39.150
Sebastien Perusat: Customers around the world, so big thank you to we do you remain it’s about 12 minutes average eight minutes to get an answer on that.

246
00:34:41.070 –> 00:34:42.630
Andy Whiteside: I want to highlight something you just said.

247
00:34:43.200 –> 00:34:51.210
Andy Whiteside: You talked about I gel employees being active in the Community, you talked about ideal customers being active in the Community, talking about agile partners being active in the Community.

248
00:34:51.600 –> 00:34:55.560
Andy Whiteside: it’s it’s all of us together that’s making the ideal community.

249
00:34:56.400 –> 00:35:06.390
Andy Whiteside: work, including I gel resources and a lot of the vendors are basically taking their hands off their groups and just say okay group go fend for yourself.

250
00:35:06.780 –> 00:35:18.810
Andy Whiteside: And while that may seem like the right strategy it really isn’t because nobody’s going to represent the group any better than the vendor themselves and of entities to play an active role.

251
00:35:19.800 –> 00:35:22.410
Sebastien Perusat: Absolutely, and we do one on a peasant.

252
00:35:24.720 –> 00:35:35.940
Sebastien Perusat: So just coming out to the last slides because we’re running out of time, and just put it together some figures that we have no reports out of it were to count and.

253
00:35:36.660 –> 00:35:48.150
Sebastien Perusat: Create exercise so it’s just a real raw view so it’s not something we’re just looking extremely good there was no graphs but just sharing we released 30 firmware this year’s.

254
00:35:48.720 –> 00:35:59.760
Sebastien Perusat: They should think about agile, so if you think that there is a firmware for ios 11 we released 30 firmware releases this year but includes obviously also private parts which are not public.

255
00:36:00.240 –> 00:36:10.950
Sebastien Perusat: But from the public ones we released six, so we have 24 when the private build or retired one so it’s extremely huge amount, I would say.

256
00:36:11.910 –> 00:36:24.660
Sebastien Perusat: There was also the huge requirement that you have outside about zoom vdi plugins teams optimization new citrix workspace versions will need to be integrated as fast as possible.

257
00:36:25.620 –> 00:36:38.700
Sebastien Perusat: that’s a huge amount that I have never seen on the address or 35th and around a year it’s something which is extremely rare, to be honest and our say it’s the first time that we added so much from us, even though it was not such.

258
00:36:39.270 –> 00:36:46.410
Andy Whiteside: So, so what you’re saying is this stuff’s moving really quickly, it has to because the industry is moving really quickly, all the more reason to have an active Community.

259
00:36:47.190 –> 00:36:51.810
Sebastien Perusat: Definitely, because every family every product that brings also some.

260
00:36:52.530 –> 00:37:03.330
Sebastien Perusat: yeah some risks, I would say, so there was no product, but was it you that for every proposed, but we have specific purpose covering the specific football specific specific use case.

261
00:37:03.870 –> 00:37:17.700
Sebastien Perusat: And sometimes you just have the feeling that something is not going wrong or not going right then just out in the Community, and we can say yes it’s something that we already had a couple of weeks ago and that’s where we actually enjoying our let’s say our feelings.

262
00:37:18.810 –> 00:37:33.360
Sebastien Perusat: But then on the US side we had seven your mess releases we had for agile cloud gateway releases and coming back to the idea that agile community.com feature proposal tool we had 116.

263
00:37:33.750 –> 00:37:43.410
Sebastien Perusat: future proposal approximately I would say 15% of them were integrated or were put on the backlog, so we have still a huge amount of work there, but.

264
00:37:43.830 –> 00:38:00.450
Sebastien Perusat: Just be sure that your request is not throwing away it’s still on the list we just have to focus on our new product that will come next year, so for the moment, was a stack of 15 but we we expect more features, to be included in the next os dot.

265
00:38:02.490 –> 00:38:11.340
Sebastien Perusat: Then detective juicer videos we had 31 this year published between outset positively February to now.

266
00:38:12.060 –> 00:38:22.680
Sebastien Perusat: So that’s something that caused a lot of time because were to create scripts were to create a content, where do you publish them so just saying that 31 videos I know waiting for your clicks.

267
00:38:23.460 –> 00:38:30.810
Sebastien Perusat: Then we had three early access programs, so we, at the end computing were also a web APP or the exit problem and the US, as the.

268
00:38:32.130 –> 00:38:33.060
Sebastien Perusat: us so.

269
00:38:34.170 –> 00:38:46.020
Sebastien Perusat: Just forgetting the user experience of all your web APP and our upcoming us version, where we integrated the fetus of you guys into the product with 10 meetups.

270
00:38:47.190 –> 00:38:56.490
Sebastien Perusat: So more or less one time month we had a short amount of time in summer, where we made a short break because the topics were more or less done.

271
00:38:57.030 –> 00:39:04.110
Sebastien Perusat: And we have 10 meetup this year and last one, and just covering obviously the agile Community sessions we had 20.

272
00:39:04.560 –> 00:39:10.140
Sebastien Perusat: podcast was you and the end with you, Chris the theater where at the beginning duck made the first one.

273
00:39:10.620 –> 00:39:23.670
Sebastien Perusat: And then us account to invite me so thank you Andy and Chris for inviting me to the agile Community podcast we have no 21 after today, so thank you very much for that and i’m done right now.

274
00:39:25.890 –> 00:39:33.060
Andy Whiteside: hey Chris I know you’ve been kind of quiet any any thoughts or recaps on steps walk through the Community update.

275
00:39:34.350 –> 00:39:40.050
Chris Feeney: I know it is quite when you have focus, such as a guy like said, focusing on.

276
00:39:41.550 –> 00:39:47.910
Chris Feeney: Really, investing in that it just shows you I just commitment to you know this community and how serious we are that.

277
00:39:48.390 –> 00:39:57.300
Chris Feeney: You know, we do take this so we take the feedback we provide this opportunity for people to continue that learning process sharing their ideas.

278
00:39:58.110 –> 00:40:05.970
Chris Feeney: And it’s fun, I mean, I think you know you’ve heard it from Doug before there’s there’s something to be said about having a community of people that are like minded and.

279
00:40:07.950 –> 00:40:19.860
Chris Feeney: and are willing to share ideas together and learn from each other right, I mean, I think, if you look at that the current scenario right we’re all dealing with this log for J thing right I think everybody’s sort of in it together to try to figure out how to.

280
00:40:20.580 –> 00:40:22.770
Chris Feeney: mitigate this thing if not eradicated, but.

281
00:40:24.030 –> 00:40:29.280
Chris Feeney: Sharing that to yourself, I mean doesn’t really help the entire the rest of the Community, so if you have a great idea.

282
00:40:30.060 –> 00:40:42.510
Chris Feeney: You know you’ve got guys like seven others that are out there to kind of help flush it out, if you don’t want to necessarily post it publicly and then you know my turn into a really cool blog or something a video that the rest of the Community benefits from so.

283
00:40:44.460 –> 00:40:50.670
Chris Feeney: i’m glad that that I will you know focused on that and then put resource like said on it.

284
00:40:51.480 –> 00:41:03.210
Chris Feeney: I wish I was more active in it, to be honest, I i’ve had a plate full on this year, but I do want to try to spend more time in the Community there, so if you’ve reached out to me and I haven’t responded it’s, not because I like you.

285
00:41:06.480 –> 00:41:11.280
Andy Whiteside: So I would I would echo the sentiment, I am no longer as technical as I want to be in.

286
00:41:11.280 –> 00:41:11.850
Chris Feeney: can write.

287
00:41:12.180 –> 00:41:17.460
Andy Whiteside: The party, but I tell people all the time hey if I go work for a company i’d consider working for I gel and i’d like to be involved in their Community it’s.

288
00:41:17.820 –> 00:41:29.460
Andy Whiteside: it’s actually near and dear to who and what I am it’s just not what my daily responsibilities are keeping 55 employees employed is all about these days, but certainly something I see a ton of value in.

289
00:41:29.940 –> 00:41:30.870
Chris Feeney: yeah no doubt I.

290
00:41:32.250 –> 00:41:36.420
Chris Feeney: truth be told, i’m still learning slack i’ll raise my hand and say i’m.

291
00:41:37.500 –> 00:41:40.170
Chris Feeney: i’m not i’m i’m not a jet ninja on that one yet.

292
00:41:41.220 –> 00:41:54.510
Chris Feeney: jet fighter pilot but, but my colleague RON there is very active in, and so we sort of balance each other out i’m checking on stuff over here he’s working on that and we kind of help collaborate, so it is, it is nice to have a teammate like like RON.

293
00:41:55.110 –> 00:42:03.960
Chris Feeney: and, obviously, Sam is out there, responding and that type of thing, so we we all try to work to make sure that if somebody does post a question it doesn’t go on answered.

294
00:42:05.880 –> 00:42:07.170
Chris Feeney: for very long so.

295
00:42:08.370 –> 00:42:17.550
Chris Feeney: But said that’s great i’m excited I will say for those that if you are in Academy, one thing that we’ve also done is.

296
00:42:18.390 –> 00:42:28.710
Chris Feeney: Basically, take links and point them at these tech tip videos So if you and just post them in there as well, so there’s multiple places to get to the same contents and it’s all basically coming off of YouTube.

297
00:42:29.520 –> 00:42:39.660
Chris Feeney: But I gel academy is a place, not only for you to get certified but you’ll see links to these other tech tip videos server one place to go with your your agile learning so.

298
00:42:40.860 –> 00:42:50.130
Chris Feeney: And certainly if you want to share a video or whatever new you think it’s where the there is a place to do that, certainly in the Community, but.

299
00:42:50.490 –> 00:42:58.800
