vExpert 2011!

by Patrick Redknap on July 4, 2011

This weekend the VMware vExpert 2011 awards were handed out as recognition of work above and beyond the norm within the VMware, virtualization, and cloud computing communities. Early Friday morning the tweets began to roll out and the usual suspects got another year’s recognition for their efforts, and rightly so as there are people out there who do live and breath virtualization and work hard to bring it to others!

Well over the last 3-4 years I’ve been firmly immersed in the virtualization industry and thought I was in with a good shot this year of getting the prized vExpert badge!
Come Saturday night I had seen a lot of tweets and it is truthful to say that I had given up all hope by of getting a vExpert Award this year!

Then I got an email from VMware!

Yes I have been dubbed vExpert 2011 which pretty much made my weekend! ;)

Many thanks to John Troyer and the rest of the people at VMware for this! I’d also like to thank the rest of the VMware community as you are all a top bunch who have made the last 4 years of my career an interesting one!

Keep up the good work everyone and goooo VMware! ;)
