11 Februari 2021 was also a special day for me. That day the word came out I was granted the privilige of becoming a VMware vExpert!
What is a VMware vExpert?
VMware started the vExpert program in 2009. VMware vExpert is an honorary title VMware grants to outstanding advocates of the company’s products.
VMware recognizes vExperts with a certificate. The certificate and title give vExperts special privileges such as access to such private betas, free NFR licenses, and exclusive events. Currently, VMware has three paths to become a vExpert: the Evangelist Path, the Customer Path and the VMware Partner Path.
The Evangelist Path is for bloggers, authors, tool builders, public speakers and contributors to the VMware Technology Network discussion boards. The Customer Path is for people who promote the use of VMware products in their companies or by taking other actions such as helping to run a VMUG (VMware User Group) or speaking at a conference. The VMware Partner Path is for employees (of partner companies) who have acquired accreditations and certifications and assist other VMware users by sharing their technical proficiency.
Congrats to all new and renewed VMware vExperts!
