The vExpert program is for those individuals that go above an beyond their daily jobs to help the community by making contributions in several key areas. These include being an evangelist, customer contributions or through the VMware Partner Network.
The one area that many fall under is the evangelist path that includes many bloggers that spend countless hours posting content to help others with real world scenarios and product reviews. Public speakers and authors fall under this category as well that deliver excellent content for a variety of VMware products.
You can’t forget about the customer category that encompasses many admins, engineers and infrastructure people that are champions internally and drive their respective companies forward with VMware products. I really enjoy heard success stories from many of these folks.
Then there is the partner path, which include many VAR’s throughout the world that are out in the field day after day implementing, supporting and being an external resource to many organizations. I see many of them doing speaking engagements and providing support that goes well above their job duties to enhance the community.
I salute all of the vExperts year after year for their significant contributions and dedicated work.
I am extremely honored to be elected into the program for a third year as I try to give as much back to the community as what I have received.
Congratulations to all that made the program this year!
