Wow. I'm super humbled to have finally received the vExpert Award for 2021. This is a first for me, that's what I get for being a bit extra! 😛


Pretty awesome to know that keeping this blog active, participating in my local VMUG and contributing to the overall community lead to being a part of this exclusive group. 

That's awesome...but what is a vExpert anyway? 

As a vExpert, there are a list of program benefits that will be available to those selected.

  • Network with over 2,000 other vExperts
  • Opportunity to apply for 8 Official VMware Business Unit lead vExpert sub programs.
  • Invite to our private vExpert #Slack channel
  • Opportunity to apply for 10 product BU led vExpert sub-programs
  • vExpert certificate signed by our VMware CEO
  • Permission to use the vExpert logo on cards, website, etc. for one year
  • Exclusive gifts from various VMware partners
  • Private webinars with VMware partners as well as NFRs
  • Access to private betas (subject to admission by beta teams)
  • 365-day eval licenses for most products for home lab / cloud providers
  • Private pre-launch briefings via our blogger briefing pre-VMworld (subject to admission by product teams)
  • Featured in a public vExpert online directory
  • Access to vetted VMware & Virtualization content for your social channels
  • Yearly vExpert parties at both VMworld US and VMworld Europe events
  • Identification as a vExpert at both VMworld US and VMworld EU

That's pretty sweet! How can I become a vExpert? 

I know other companies have similar programs such as:

It's just cool to be part of this small network of similar minded individuals.

If you are already very VMware centric at your employer, then join your local VMUG, start a blog or even TikTok. A little bit here and there goes a long way. 🙂
