Your moderators: Two of your local leaders will be handling moderating duties for this event.Richard Henry
: Richard is the Senior Systems Engineer at the Jewish Federation of Cleveland. He has a fledgling #Homelab
on its best day and fondly looks forward to the day where he can stop using his production environment as a test lab. He does know how to talk a lot, so moderator seemed like a better place for him. You can find sporadic posts on Twitter @RichardMHenry.Andrew Virgili
: Andrew is the Network & Desktop Infrastructure Supervisor at Wooster Community Hospital. He wouldn't know what a #Homelab
was if it slapped him in the face, but he hopes to one day put his big boy pants on. He does ask a mean question though. His barely existing Twitter presence is @DrewVirgili.
