VMware vExpert 2011 Applications Are Now Open

John Troyer has just announced that the applications for the vExpert 2011 Program is now open.

vExperts are the bloggers, the book authors, the VMUG leaders, the tool builders and town criers, the tinkerers and speakers and thinkers who are moving us all forward as an IT industry.


A vExpert should demonstrate knowledge about VMware solutions and their benefits, and how they fit into the overall IT landscape. A vExpert designation is not a technical certification of any kind, although they are often very articulate and knowledgeable about virtualization and IT topics, both technical and non-technical. It should not be confused with a VCDX (VMware Certified Design Expert).

So there are a few things that are different this year, so please go over to the original announcement and read the details

I can say it was well worth while being awarded the honor last year, be it the early access to different programs, and other small freebies (and no, John would not give us a personalized iPad!!)

Information Forms will be accepted until midnight PST Friday, May 6, 2011. vExpert recipients will be notified within the following two weeks.
