Earlier this month the team managing the VMware program announced the vExpert class of 2018. I’m proud and excited to share with all that I have become a vExpert once more, making this my second year. I thank those of whom nominated me and continued to view my contributions and myself as a valued member of the community.

 

What is a vExpert

VMware vExpert is an honorary title VMware grants to outstanding advocates and contributors in the community.

What is the vExpert Program

The VMware vExpert program is a collection of VMware advocates and provides them with invaluable resources to continue doing work supporting the growing community.  VMware recognizes vExperts with a certificate. The certificate and title give vExperts special privileges such as access to such private betas, free licenses, and exclusive events. Most importantly it brings experts closer together for collaboration and discussion.

The program is designed to put resources towards advocacy efforts. Promotion of articles, exposure at our global events, co-op advertising, traffic analysis, and early access to beta programs and VMware’s roadmap. The awards are for individuals, not companies, and last for one year.
