Josh Warcop, or “Warcop” as everyone calls him, is coming to Networking Field Day 21! This is Warcop’s first Field Day event and we are excited to have him for this epic FOUR-day event! I think he is going to love being a Field Day delegate, because when I browse his website, he shares, “It’s always fun to meet new people and talk about new technologies. What’s really awesome is when those discussions turn into making it work.” 

Warcop is an engineer, consultant, collaborator, tinkerer, and technology enthusiast. At home he’s dad, chef, and a self-proclaimed BBQ aficionado. In fact, if Warcop wasn’t in Tech, he’d be cooking. I bet he’d be BBQ’ing! Connect with Warcop at @Warcop on Twitter, the web, or the Tech Field Day web site.

How did you get into Technology and IT?

This is a great question! It comes up often and I can’t stand answering it. Ask me why at some point. Long story short, I made a very early life career decision to pursue knowledge in a unique domain. IT has many layers, I like layers, like onions. I’m an ogre.

What do you do now? 

I “do stuff” and take on the work no one else wants to tackle. I’m contemplating leaving the contracting-consulting world. I’m always retired. Always be retired is my philosophy.

Where do you see IT going in the next 3-5 years?

DE-centralization. Network engineers will continue to try and fail at being developers.

What are your biggest challenges?

Focus! I can’t focus. I also have a hard time following directions. Unless they’re driving directions then I must follow them precisely even if it drives me into the ocean.

What was your first computer? What was great about it? What is your go-to computer now?

Officially my first computer was a Packard Bell 486. Instead of upgrading it… I started collecting older computers to understand x86 architectures.

If you could have ONE super power, what would it be and how would you use it?

Ok, lots of potential in this question, but I’ll stick with fantasy super powers popularized by Marvel and DC. All-speak! It isn’t immediately recognized, but the ability to speak all universal languages. I’d use it to connect people around the globe and into the universe.

What do you do in your spare time?

I’m a single dad raising two girls. What’s spare time? I do enjoy cooking and have done BBQ competitions. I love movies, watch a lot of movies and don’t ask me my favorite. (wait for it…)

What is your go-to ice cream and what’s the best way to enjoy it?

Chocolate chip cookie dough, without toppings, from the container, alone, watching rom-coms on Netflix, with my cat, snap chatting my BFFs.

How do you manage your work/life balance?

I work in 3 hour sprints and spend at least 1 hour a day organizing a kanban. I take long breaks between sprints. Working in IT many times involves working in the evening so it makes no sense to me to work an 8 hour day.

What is your favorite movie? (and there it is)

Oh wow… I scrolled down and was asked my favorite movie. Touched with Fire.

(And there it is! Of course we asked!)

What are you most excited about seeing at the event?

The presentations. No, seriously. I’m genuinely interested in the content being delivered at these events.

Yes! We are pumped for the presentations, too!

Thanks, Warcop! We are looking forward to seeing you at Networking Field Day 21 next week! 

Mark your calendars, so you can catch the presentations live, on October 1-4! Join the conversations using #NFD21 on Twitter!
