Jesse La Grew
Classes qualified to teach:
Jesse La Grew joined the DoIT RaDS team in 2001 and started teaching with Professional Technical Education in 2007. On campus, you may find him consulting on IT projects, teaching OSX Leopard Server Administration, or repairing infected computers.
Jesse’s area of expertise is Desktop and Network Support, and as such he’s been certified as an Apple Certified System Administrator, and with CompTIA Network+. He has always liked computers and was lucky to get one early on. His desire to learn new things and trouble-shoot and fix technology that is broken is a key to his success.
Jesse moved a large UW department to a new network, including servers and migrating workstations. In this role, he learned more about how other departments manage computers, and was challenged by making sure productivity was not interrupted by the network migration.
A software tip:
Always use antivirus software, even if you own a Mac. While infections in Mac OS are rare, eliminating the spread of infected files helps everyone. There may also come a time where a virus that affects Mac OS more dramatically will be created, and without any protection or notification, productivity will be affected.
A favorite free software:
VLC. It’s a great media software that works with just about anything. It’s helpful not needing to worry about codecs for other players and has many other features outside of simple media playback.
A favorite restaurant:
Chess, camping, and computers
