This week we’re featuring another of the ‘leading lights’ from the PSAdmin.io slack community  – Wayne Fuller. He is a regular in the community and a frequent guest on their PodCast discussing running large scale PeopleSoft while at Wells Fargo (amongst other places). He also presented at the inaugural PSAdmin.conf on The Future of PeopleSoft Administration (the recording is available and is well worth 30 minutes of your time). I’m thrilled that he has added his profile to our ‘How I Work‘ series.

Name: Wayne Fuller

Occupation: Application Engineer
Location: Minneapolis
Current computer: HP EliteBook
Current mobile devices: Nexus 5X
I work: Proactively

What apps/software/tools can’t you live without?
Any app that I can learn quickly that saves me time, i.e. Beyond Compare etc.

Besides your phone and computer, what gadget can’t you live without?
My refrigerator.  It keeps the beer cold.  Also my Kindle because you have to have something to read while you are sipping a beer.

What’s your workspace like?
Just a small open cube when I actually go into work. Since I am part time I don’t have a permanent workspace. When I work from home I sit at the kitchen counter.

What do you listen to while you work?
Other people whine.

What PeopleSoft-related productivity apps do you use?
Is Change Assistant a productivity app? How about the images? Integration Broker? I know, event mapping.

Do you have a 2-line tip that some others might not know?
MOS actually can answer questions. Sometimes you just have to read between the lines.

What SQL/Code do you find yourself writing most often?
Code to query PeopleTools tables to discover where and how some of the new objects are stored. Useful for behind the scenes compares.

What would be the one item you’d add to PeopleSoft if you could?
A guarantee of longevity.

What everyday thing are you better at than anyone else?
Pretending that I am good at troubleshooting by using Google search.

How do you keep yourself healthy and happy?
I work 2 days a week and don’t think about work when I am at home.

What’s the best advice you’ve ever received?
Never be afraid to give your opinion on something you are expert in. You likely know better than your boss as you are the one who works with the stuff daily. He should value, nay require your opinion on things that you do.
