In 2008, as a newly-badged CWNT, I traveled to CWNP’s HQ in Atlanta for the new CWNA Train-the-Trainer class. The man delivering the class was Devin Akin. Devin’s WLAN knowledge was mind-blowing, yet never intimidating. That week with Devin instilled in me the desire to be the best that I could be, and started me on a quest for WLAN knowledge that changed my career and life in ways I couldn’t have imagined. And, 8 years later, I’m still at it. And 8 years later it’s great to know that Devin’s out there, pushing WLAN knowledge and professionalism, inspiring, mentoring, and leading.
