VMware vExpert 2013

I’m a bit behind at the moment, but I wanted to take a moment to say thank you to John Troyer, Corey Romero and the folks in the VMware Social Media & Community Team for leaving me on the list for vExpert 2013. It’s a long list, and you’ll notice a lot of familiar names on there. So, thanks.


It’s also been really cool to see the rest of the community kick in with some goodies for vExperts. TrainSignal have come through with a year’s free training for vExperts – which I think is really quite awesome. You can also sign up for a free trial here – worth checking out.


Tintri have also ponied up with some shirts.


And this morning Proximal Data announced that vExperts could help themselves to a free one-year AutoCache license.


I’m also hearing rumours of good things to be had if you make it to VMworld this year as well. So, you know, good for me ;)

But it’s not really about that, it’s about community contribution, and I’m humbled and honoured to be part of it all for the first time this year.

Bas tweeted about a pint glass for vExperts. Now that’s something I can make good use of.
