Who is DDPWR?

DDPWR is a product of the Power systems community at large. If there’s one thing I’ve discovered over the years, it’s that there is no Mr. Power Systems that has all of the answers. We all know bits and pieces that help get us through the day, and contribute to future admins.

What is DDPWR?

DDPWR is a collaboration of users, experts, and fanatics from the real world. You’ll find very little theory here, and a whole lot of practical tips and experience. Hopefully this site will be your daily “go to” site for quick tidbits and insight into your next project or task. As with most things, you get out of DDPWR what you put in, so please don’t hesitate to join and contribute.

Where is DDPWR?

DDPWR is all around. With a little time I hope to see contributions from all around the world!

Calling all Power Fanatics…

The desire I have for this site is to provide a place for the Power systems community to contribute practical knowledge that could be useful to an admin beginning his first day of work, all the way up to the seasoned grey beard.
