vExpert 2011

I’m most happy and pleased to announce my acceptance back into the vExpert community for yet another year.

It’s been a great program that I’ve had the honor to be involved in for all three years it’s existed.  It’s grown over those years and now includes some really great benefits.

Big thanks go out to John Troyer who runs the program and deals with all the weirdness we put him through.  I’d also like to extend a big “Thank You” to the anonymous board of voters that helped John filter through all the submissions for the award.  Finally I’ll recognize the leadership at VMware, particularly CTO Steve Herrod, for supporting this program.  It’s developed a strong community amongst ourselves that ultimately supports VMware from the roots of the grass and we all love it .
