VMware vExpert 2012

This week VMware announced the vExperts for 2012 and I am proud to be one of them. Last year I didn’t make it. But this morning I received the following e-mail from Alex Maier who is the VMware vExpert Program Manager:

I am pleased to inform you that you have been designated a vExpert 2012 in recognition of your contribution to the VMware, virtualization, and cloud computing community.

You’ve done work above and beyond, helping others succeed with VMware, and we here in the Social Media and Communities team are delighted to welcome you to the program.

VMware vExperts are a special group, a network of peers, who communicate with each other and VMware closely, share resources, and get other opportunities for greater interaction throughout the year.

Thanks for all you do. The vExpert Program is going to be great this year. Keep on rocking!

With kind regards,
Alex Maier (vExpert Program Manager) and the VMware Social Media and Communities Team

Many thanks to Alex and John Mark Troyer, who started the vExpert program three years ago.

I am proud to be part of the VMware vExperts. And I look forward to work with VMware and the other vExperts more closely.

Congratulations to all the other vExperts 2012!

More information about the VMware vExpert program can be found at the vExpert Directory.

Top Blog 2012 results

Today Eric Siebert announced the Top Blog 2012 results. When I nominated my blog for the Top Blog voting I was a little bit afraid that I might end up last. But I didn’t.

My results

Here are my results:

Category Place Votes
Overall 145 19
Favorite Scripting Blog 10 21

Table1. My results at the Top Blog 2012 voting.

There were 187 blogs nominated in total. So I’m very happy with place 145.

This result stimulates me to try to write a lot of good blog posts this year. And I hope to do it even better in the Top Blog voting next year.

Thank you to all who voted for my blog!

Introduction

AvatarIn this new blog I will try to write about VMware vSphere, Microsoft Windows PowerShell and probably most about the combination of these two technologies: VMware vSphere PowerCLI.

The past two years I have been working full time with VMware vSphere and PowerCLI. I’m studying for the VCP exam. And this year I will attend VMworld for the first time. I want to write about the things that keep me busy in my job. But you can also expect to read about VMworld and my VCP study.

I hope you will enjoy reading my blog.
