The vExpert 2014 Q3 Announcement of inductees was made today. Congratulations to all who were added to the number!
I am super excited to share that I made the vExpert list for 2014! It truly is an honor to join the family of experts, leaders, and evangelists that I’ve looked up to over the years. What an amazing group of individuals who have each given so much to the community. So many of us in this industry are where we are today, much in part to the efforts and contributions of these talented folks. I can’t imagine what the community would be like without their efforts. I personally have benefited tremendously from the knowledge, the guidance, the troubleshooting tips, the study guides, the product updates and announcements, and certainly the personal experiences and opinions these folks have shared. They are leaders and giants.
And thankfully, giving begets giving. Their generosity has encouraged many others to share and offer their own slice of expertise to build what we have today – a vastly mixed community covering all areas of the software defined spectrum. The enthusiasm for this technology is contagious and continues to spread. The number of vExperts continues to grow year after year. And it’s exciting to be part of this!
Again, congratulations to all who joined the family this quarter! I’m honored and humbled to be counted among you.
A special thanks go out to VMware, Corey Romero and the vExpert team, and of course the man who started it all and passed on the torch, John Troyer. Bravo to you guys for YOUR efforts!
