Rod Trent has over 25 years of IT experience, with over 20 dedicated systems management. Rod has written many books, thousands of articles (he's a writer not a blogger - there's a difference), and speaks at various conferences and User Groups during the year. But Rod's main focus has always been evangelizing technical community on the web and in “real life”.

Professionally, Rod is the Engagement, Education, and Conference Director for Penton Media, which plays perfectly into all of his specialized experiences, skills, and acquired expertise.

Personally, Rod is a fitness and health nut, enjoys a full life with his wonderful wife and four kids, and spends his downtime watching TV shows and movies from the 1970s and earlier.
