Interview with a Windows Server and Exchange MCC Wiki Ninja!!! – Fernando Lugão Veltem


Today’s Monday Interview with a Wiki Ninja is with Fernando Lugão Veltam.
 
 
Who are you, and what do you do? What are your specialty technologies?
English
I have six years’ experience in technology, always focused on the technology infrastructure of Microsoft and Citrix. I always liked to study and seek new challenges; I completed my first certification in late 2006 on Windows Server 2003. I continued my studies and completed the Windows 2003 MCSE by the end of 2008, and I continue my studies in the area of ??messaging and collaboration with Exchange 2007. Today I am an MCSE in Server 2003, MCITP in Server 2008 and Lync, and an MCTS in Exchange Server 2010 and 2007.
As a professional collaborator, I worked on projects involving Lync Unified Communication Server, Office Communicator Server 2007, and the updates 2000 and 2003 servers to the Windows Server 2008 structure.
The company I work in (Vitoria Espirito Santo) is primarily intended for government clients, and my December was tiring!
 
Portugues
Tenho seis anos de experiência em tecnologia, sempre com foco em tecnologia de infraestrutura Microsoft e Citrix. Sempre gostei de estudar e procurar novos desafios, fiz minha primeira certificação no fim de 2006 em Windows Server 2003.  Continuei os estudos em Windows 2003 e completei o MCSE no fim do ano 2008 e continuie com os estudos na área de mensageria e colaboração com o Exchange 2007.  Hoje sou MCSE em server 2003, MCITP em Server 2008 e Lync Server e MCTS em Exchange 2010 e 2007
Como profissional de colaboração trabalhei em projetos de Unified Communication envolvendo Lync Server e o Office Communicator Server 2007, bem como atualizações de servidores 2000 e 2003 para estrutura de Windows Server 2008.
Na empresa que trabalho em Vitoria Espirito Santo é voltada principalmente para clientes governamentais, e tive um fim de ano bem corrido!
 
 
How did you become an MCC and Microsoft Partner? Do you have any suggestions for other community members who hope to eventually become MCCs?
 
 English
I began to interact with the Microsoft forums and communities over the past two years, and I always saw TechNet as a way to learn and exchange experiences. I focused my efforts in the areas of Messaging and Unified Communications where I have more knowledge and experience.
My recommendation for anyone thinking of starting this work in the forum is to focus on their area of ??expertise at the beginning and to always put quality before quantity of responses. It does not help for you to answer questions all day if they do not help anyone and if they add nothing to the community.
 
Portugues
Comecei a interagir com a comunidades e forums Microsoft nos últimos dois anos, e sempre encarei o Techenet como uma forma de aprendizado e troca de experiências. Foquei meus esforços nas áreas de Mensageria e Comunicações Unificadas onde tenho mais conhecimento e experiência
Minha recomendação para quem pensa em iniciar este trabalho no forum é focar em sua área de conhecimento no inicio e sempre colocar qualidade das respostas antes da quantidade, não adianta você responder vinte perguntas por hora se no fim do dia elas não ajudaram ninguem e nem acrescentaram nada para a comunidade
 
 
What are your big projects right now?
 
English
The project I’m participating in today is out of my comfort zone. I’m now facing management of the whole System Center family, especially the System Center Configuration Manager and Operations Manager. We closed a project where we implemented the Configuration Manager, Operations Manager, and infrastructure virtualization with Virtual Machine Manager and Hyper-V.
This year will be full; I am studying the upcoming System Center family: specifically Configuration Manager 2012 and Operations Manager 2012, and I am very excited about the new features of these solutions to manage and monitor the IT park. I plan on increasing my Wiki articles on these topics to prepare for the certifications of these solutions and to help others who are starting to learn about this subject.
Another expectation for this year is to increase the Wiki articles on the interactions between Exchange, Lync, and other voice and collaboration solutions, such as Cisco Call Manager.
 
Portugues
O projeto que estou participando hoje fica fora da minha zona de conforto, estou encarando agora a parte de gerência com a família System Center especialmente o Configuration Manager e o Operation Manager. Fechamos um projeto onde vamos implementar o Configuration Manager, Operation Manager e uma infraestrutura de virtualização com o Virtual Machine Manager e o Hyper-V.
Este ano será bem cheio, estou estudando os próximos lançamentos da família System Center como o Configuration Manager 2012 e Operation Manager 2012 e estou muito animado com as novas funcionalidades destas soluções para gerencia e monitoramento do parque de TI. Planejo aumentar meus artigos no Wiki neste assuntos para me preparar para as certificações destas soluções e ajudar outros que estão iniciando neste assunto.
Outra expectativa para este ano é aumentar os artigos sobre a interação entre o Exchange, Lync e outras soluções de voz e colaboração como o Call Manager da Cisco.
   
 
How does TechNet Wiki fit into the rest of your job?
 
English
 
The TechNet Wiki project is a great source of knowledge and experience for me; I put in my documentation (wherever possible) references to Articles in TechNet Wiki. I feel proud to participate in this initiative.
 
Portugues
O projeto Wiki é uma grande fonte de conhecimento e experiência, em minhas documentações coloco sempre que possível referências a artigos do Wiki. Me sinto orgulhoso de poder participar desta iniciativa.
 
 
What is it about TechNet Wiki that interests you?
 
English
 
What attracts me to the Wiki is the opportunity to collaborate with professionals and people from all over the world. I think that this interaction is the strongest part of the Wiki. Having the opportunity to interact with professionals like Henrik Walther, Yuri Diogenes, Luciano Lima, Luiz Henrique Lima Campos, and Ed Price is a great privilege for me.
 
Portugues
O que me atrai no Wiki é a oportunidade de colaboração com profissionais e pessoas de todas as partes do mundo, acho que esta interação é a parte mais forte do Wiki. Ter a oportunidade de interagir com profissionais como Henrik Walther, Yuri Diogenes, Luciano Lima, Luiz Henrique Lima Campos e Ed Price é um grande privilégio para mim.
 
 
On what articles have you collaborated with other community members on #TNWiki? What was that experience like?
 
English
 
I have contributed a lot to the organization of the Wiki lately. One of my concerns is about spam. A very good experience I had was with the safety articles about Lync with the Reverse Proxy Server and Edge Server; feedback and contributions from other professionals were rewarding.
 
Portugues 
Tenho contribuido com bastante na organização do Wiki ultimamente. Uma das minhas preocupações é sobre os spams, o número de artigos não relacionados à tecnologia vem crescendo e isso me chate bastante. Uma experiência muito boa que tive foi com os artigos de segurança do Lync Server com o Reverse Proxy e Edge Server, o feed back e contribuições de outros profissionais foram gratificantes.
 
 
What are your favorite articles that you’ve contributed to?
 
English
 
The work of the Brazilian community in the Wiki in 2011 was tremendous, and I have several items on my list of favorites, like Marcelo Sinic writing about System Center Orchestrator 2012, Erick Albuquerque writing about IIS, dotRaphael on Configuration Manager 2007, and Souza Uilson writing about security at the ISA and TMG. But my favorite articles are the Survival guides: Guia de Sobrevivência: Lync Server 2010 (pt-BR), Guia de Sobrevivência: Exchange Server 2010 (pt-BR), Exchange Videos, and Windows PowerShell Survival Guide.
 
Portugues 
O trabalho da comunidae brasileira no Wiki em 2011 foi tremendo, e tenho vários artigos na minha lista de favoritos como Marcelo Sinic escrevendo sobre System Center Orchestrator 2012, Erick Albuquerque escrevendo sobre IIS, dotRaphael sobre Configuration Manager 2007 e Uilson Souza escrevendo sobre segurança na parte de ISA e TMG. Mas meus artigos favoritos são os Guias de Sobrevivencia, Guia de Sobrevivência: Lync Server 2010 (pt-BR) e o Guia de Sobrevivência: Exchange Server 2010 (pt-BR)Exchange Videos e Windows PowerShell Survival Guide.
 
 
Who has impressed you in the Wiki community, and why?
 
English
 
One of the most impressive people I met is Luciano Lima, an MVP and a great professional who I had the honor of meeting at the last Community Zone. I was an early contributor of Wiki Brazil, and of course he is the main influencer of the project in Brazil and he helped the community create standards and goals.
 
He is always ready to help the whole community and to promote the work in TechNet Wiki.
 
Portugues 
Uma das pessoas mais impressionantes que conheci pelo é o MVP Luciano Lima, um grande profissional que tive o honra de conhecer no último Community Zone. Foi um dos primeiros colaboradores do Wiki Brasil e com certeza é o principal influenciador do projeto no Brasil e ajudou a comunidade a criar padrões e metas.
Ele esta sempre pronto a ajudar toda a comunidade e divulgar os trabalhos realizados no Wiki.
 
 
You’ve done fairly well on the Wiki. Do you have any tips or recommendations about editing or authoring articles?
 
English
Project success depends on the Wiki community engagement and technique, but we should never forget the importance of maintaining quality and accuracy in our articles.
Create articles about your area of ??expertise, collaborate with others to improve the quality of articles and survival guides, and help keep any Wiki spam down. If you do these things, your professional development and your articles to the Wiki will thrive and will not fail!
 
Portugues 
O sucesso do projeto Wiki depende do engajamento da comunidade tecnica Microsoft mas nunca esquecendo a qualidade e precisão dos artigos.
Crie artigos sobre sua área de conhecimento, colabore com outros para melhorar a qualidade dos artigos e guias de sobrevivência e ajude a manter o Wiki liver de spams. Desta forma sua evolução profissional e seus artigos do Wiki não têm como falhar!

    Fernando, where are you located in Brazil? What kind of technology events do you attend each year (this last year for example), and what's your involvement at the events?

    Thanks!

    My pleasure, Daniel! The work that you and your community is doing is vital to Microsoft's future in Brazil, and we need to make that clear!

    Thanks for the answer, Fernando.

    Fernando, I have a few more questions for you…

    Do you read many books for your various technologies? What books are you reading right now?

    Have you thought about writing a book?

    Thanks!

  6. Fernando Lugão Veltem says:

    I have two goals for this year, first improve my knowledge of System Center and for that I visit technet.microsoft.com/…/gg682041.aspx, great documentation library. Another goal is to finish CCNA Cisco, I'm studing CCNA Exam 640-802 ICND1 right now, and I'm participating in the course of presentation and public speaking.

    I already think in writing a book, but i'm not quite ready for it yet. But who knows in a near future I start this project of writing about Lync Server and Unified Communication. For now my focus is on Wiki and articles
