After the VMware vExpert vSAN 2017 and VMware vExpert NSX 2017 awards, this year a new vExpert category has been added: the VMware vExpert Cloud. Like for other technologies vertical, these vExperts has demonstrated significant contributions to the community and a willingness to share their expertise with others. Contributing is not always blogging or Twitter as there are many public speakers, book authors, scriptwriters, VMUG leaders, VMTN community moderators and internal champions among this group.

One year ago, VMware has started new vExpert (sub)programs on different technologies. One was the vExpert vSAN. I was honored to part of the first list. Now the list for 2017 vExperts who received the vSAN award has been published. The program is build upon the vExpert program. To apply you must be a current vExpert as well as evangelizing VMware Virtual SAN. There will be an application once per year for each of the sub-programs.

VMware vExpert program recognizes people that have demonstrated significant contributions to the community and a willingness to share their expertise with others. Contributing is not always blogging or Twitter as there are many public speakers, book authors, CloudCred task writing, script writers, VMUG leaders, VMTN community moderators and internal champions among this group. The primary reason for becoming vExpert certainly should not be related to any possible benefits of the program. And once confirmed you have to think more about what you can give rather to what is to be expected. But I’d be a […]

Like the vExpert 2016 announce, also this at the beginning of February the vExpert 2017 list has been announced. Also this time I’ve been confirmed as a vExpert. The list is available on this VMware blog site: vExpert 2017 Award Announcement.

On the second half of 2016, VMware has started new vExpert (sub)programs on different technologies. One was the vExpert VSAN. And finally the list of 2016 vExperts who received the VSAN award has been published. The program is build upon the vExpert program.

The primary reason for becoming vExpert certainly should not be related to any possible benefits of the program. And once confirmed (for me is the fifth year in a row) you have to think more about what you can give rather to what is to be expected. But I’d be a hypocrite to deny that there are also practical advantages in being a vExpert! Officially, VMware, according with the vExpert FAQ, say that the biggest benefit of the award is the public recognition as a VMware vExpert Award winner. But benefits also include:

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 2014 Announcement. Past years the first list wasn’t 100% complete, so maybe also this time other people could be added before the official confirmation.

VMware has announced on its blog that Applications for the 2014 vExpert program are now open for the submission and selection of new candidates (or confirming existing candidates). The VMware vExpert Award is given to individuals who have significantly contributed to the community of VMware users over the past year. vExperts are book authors, bloggers, VMUG leaders, tool builders, and other IT professionals who share their knowledge and passion with others. These vExperts have gone above and beyond their day jobs to share their technical expertise and communicate the value of VMware and virtualization to […]

Although the official confirmation has yet arrived via email, it seems that (also) this year I was confirmed as a vExpert. Or at least they appear on the list published on the site: vExpert 2013 awardees announced. Funny that it happened exactly like the previous year… list first and then the official confirmation (we will also see if there will be some additions in the list).

With a little delay, compared on 2012, ha been announced that the vExpert 2013 program is now open for the submitsion and selection of new candidates. The VMware vExpert Award is given to individuals who have significantly contributed to the community of VMware users over the past year. vExperts are book authors, bloggers, VMUG leaders, tool builders, and other IT professionals who share their knowledge and passion with others.
