This year the vExpert 2019 announce has taken much time compared with the vExpert 2018 announce, because of some changes in the votation process. But finally has arrived, with some changes from the past years (not only for the delay, but also with the list that has been reduced). And also this time I’ve been confirmed as a vExpert.

Note that “vExpert” is not a technical certification or even a general measure of VMware expertise, it’s much like an award.

Contributing is not always blogging or Twitter as there are many public speakers, book authors, CloudCred task writers, scriptwriters, VMUG leaders, VMTN community moderators and internal champions among this group.

The judges selected people who were particularly engaged with their community and who had developed a substantial personal platform of influence in those communities and big news, in the judges list there were also the vExpert Pro.

The official list it’s available on https://vexpert.vmware.com/directory site. But note that there isn’t yet an official list updated to 2019 entries (I think that some names are not updated).

Note (August 2019): the list has been update with vExpert 2019 Second Half Award Announcement.
