I’ve held off on posting this as I don’t like to toot my own vuvuzela too loudly, but in a fit of shameless self promotion and a desire to see the program grow, here goes nothin:
I am a VMware vExpert!
VMware notifed recipients of the designation last month. The 300 or so awardees are recognized for their “advocacy of VMware solutions, your contributions to the community of VMware users, and your willingness to share your expertise with others.” I find it an absolute honor to be included amongst the vExpert class of 2010 – a group full of folks who are on the cutting edge of virtualization and cloud computing, many of whom have helped me through their books, blogs, and contributions to the VMware Community. Arnim van Lieshout has compiled a nice list of vExperts here: http://www.van-lieshout.com/vexpert-2010/.
It’s an exciting time to be a virtualization professional – in terms of the technology, people and seemingly endless opportunities. I look forward to continuing my contributions to the community through this here blog, my leadership of the Washington, DC Metro Area VMware User Group, and through my work as a implementer of VMware solutions! Special thanks to John Troyer for sponsoring the program and doing so much to organize the VMware community through the weekly VMware Community Roundtable, Social Media and the many other programs he touches.
