“Around the middle of the year” the annual vExpert notifications are sent. They are based on community contributions of the year before, and the nominees are being notified today.
I started the day with an email confirming it for me. I had been hoping for it and am very grateful to once again be a vExpert! The vExpert designation recognizes contributions to the VMware, virtualization, and cloud computing communities. Last year was my first year as a vExpert, and I am again just as humbled.
What does this mean for me? Pick it up a notch! I am continually building my brand and pushing myself to serve the virtualization and IT communities.
All of the community stuff I do needs to be put in high gear so that I can continue to add value to the virtualization community.
Thank you, VMware. Thank you, John Troyer (at VMware). And thank you IT community.
