Although the official confirmation has not yet arrived via email (same behaviour of last year or two years ago), it seems that (also) this year I was confirmed as a vExpert.

The list has published on the VMTN blog site: vExpert 2015 Announcement (for Q2 2015 see this post).

After the 2014 test (one application every three months), this year the vExpert program as slightly change again  with one application every six months… So new people will be announced in the second half of this year.

Also the number of people has grow (becoming comparable with MVP): there are al lot of vExperts this year, which is impressive!

With great pleasure I notice that many Italians have been confirmed, as well as new Italian (some well known) were added:

Note that a “vExpert” is not a technical certification or even a general measure of VMware expertise. The judges selected people who were particularly engaged with their community and who had developed a substantial personal platform of influence in those communities. There were a lot of very smart, very accomplished people that weren’t named as vExpert.
