VMware vExpert 2018


I am beyond delighted to have been accepted and named a vExpert for 2018.

For those that don’t know, the annual VMware vExpert title is given to individuals who have significantly contributed to the community of VMware users over the past year. The title is awarded to individuals (not employers) for their commitment to sharing their knowledge and passion for VMware technology above and beyond their job requirements.

For the past year I’ve been using this platform to blog about technologies I care about and my learning paths, given I work extensively with VMware products, I might have mentioned them and there technologies once or twice.

I have also for the last decade been a member of the VMTN forums, helping to answer questions and participating in discussions from ESX 3.5 up to current iterations.

What I had never done was apply for vExpert status.  Thank you to Chris Lewis aka The Cloudexpert for suggesting that I should apply.

Now when work starts to settle down I should be able to write some articles about why I’ve been so quiet the last few months.  Suffice to say it’s keeping me very busy and it involves VMware products covering the breadth of my experience and knowledge.
