vEXPERT and Other Goings On

I first want to apologize to all of you who were looking forward to additional posts about our VMUG setup back in March.  I ended up only having my complete environment for about a week after the VMUG before I had to yank it out of my data center and set it up at a customer site for a POC.  I still hope to get my hands on it again and do some posts on it.

In addition, I’ve been busy studying for certifications lately, which has left little time for blogging.  The good news here is that I now have a Microsoft MCITP Enterprise Administrator certification and will soon have an HP Master ASE certification for Blades and Clustering.

The main reason I’m finally getting around to posting an update (and apology) is that today was the announcement of the first set of vEXPERTs for 2010 and I was lucky enough to be selected for a second year in a row!  The award says nothing about my technical skills directly, but is definitely still an honor in that it acknowledges my ability to communicate the awesomeness of VMware’s products and vision.

Thank you very much to John Troyer, the man-not-so-behind-the-curtain in all things VMware social media, for heading up and pushing this award program and all its benefits.  Another special thank you to VMware and the team of vExpert judges.

I already have another post in the works, so keep an eye out for that…
