vExpert 2016 Second Half Announcement

VMW-LOGO-vEXPERT-2016-k

Thank you to everyone who applied for vExpert. I’m pleased to announce the list of 2016 Second Half vExperts. Each of these vExperts have demonstrated significant contributions to the community and a willingness to share their expertise with others. Contributing is not always blogging or Twitter as there are many public speakers, book authors, script writers, VMUG leaders, VMTN community moderators and internal champions among this group.

I want to personally thank everyone who applied and point out that a “vExpert” is not a technical certification or even a general measure of VMware expertise. The judges selected people who were particularly engaged with their community and who had developed a substantial personal platform of influence in those communities. If you feel like you were not selected in error, that’s entirely possible.

The judges may have overlooked or misinterpreted what you wrote in your application. Email us at vexpert@vmware.com and we can discuss your situation. We looked at all of the 2015 and some of 2016 activities to determine the voting results.

If you were selected as a vExpert 2016 Second Half, we will be conducting the on-boarding after VMworld so expect the vExpert Welcome Email in early September. In the welcome email we will explain the entire program and what you need to do to be enrolled in our private vExpert community as well as listed in the vExpert directory. We will use the email address provided in your vExpert application. Congratulations to all the vExperts, new and returning.

We’re looking forward to working with you. Command + F away and find your name if you can’t wait for the welcome email.

Corey Romero, and the VMware Social Media & Community Team

VMworld 2016 Las Vegas – Video & Podcast Studio

vmworld2016

Last time we were in Las Vegas we put together a self service video / podcast booth where you can book a time slot to reserve the studio for free. You will have the opportunity to either use your own equipment or use the equipment we provide to produce video or podcasts. We will have a VMworld branded backdrop as well as video gear for you to use during the show.

Please sign up and fill in your name & twitter handle for the time slot you want. We have blocked out 30 minute slots so feel free to book multiple slots as needed. The available days are tabbed in the doc and is available at https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1Fcb_Hd5ZBkY3iI_apX6TNuFPj4O_VRFRH0MwA2YA_ok/edit?usp=sharing

Thank You and See You at VMworld 2016 in Las Vegas!

Corey Romero, VMware Community Manager (vExpert & VMTN)

vExpert 2016 Second Half Applications are Now Open

Applications for the 2016 vExpert program are now open. This is the second and last chance to apply for vExpert in 2016. Applications will be accepted until July 1st at midnight PDT. The vExpert 2016 second half announcement will be on August 19th 2016. Current 2016 vExperts do not need to apply. 

vExpert

The VMware vExpert program is VMware’s global evangelism and advocacy program. The program is designed to put VMware’s marketing resources towards your advocacy efforts. Promotion of your articles, exposure at our global events, co-op advertising, traffic analysis, and early access to beta programs and VMware’s roadmap.

Each year, we bring together in the vExpert Program the people who have made some of the most important contributions to the VMware community. These are the bloggers, book authors, VMUG leaders, speakers, tool builders, community leaders and general enthusiasts. They work as IT admins and architects for VMware customers, they act as trusted advisors and implementors for VMware partners or as independent consultants, and some work for VMware itself. All of them have the passion and enthusiasm for technology and applying technology to solve problems. They have contributed to the success of us all by sharing their knowledge and expertise over their days, nights, and weekends.

vExperts who participate in the program have access to private betas, free licenses, early access briefings, exclusive events, free access to VMworld conference materials online, exclusive vExpert parties at VMworld and other opportunities to interact with VMware product teams. They also get access to a private community and networking opportunities.

Evangelist Path
The Evangelist Path includes book authors, bloggers, tool builders, public speakers, VMTN contributors, and other IT professionals who share their knowledge and passion with others with the leverage of a personal public platform to reach many people. Employees of VMware can also apply via the Evangelist path. A VMware employee reference is recommended if your activities weren’t all in public or were in a language other than English.

Customer Path
The Customer Path is for leaders from VMware customer organizations. They have been internal champions in their organizations, or worked with VMware to build success stories, act as customer references, given public interviews, spoken at conferences, or were VMUG leaders. A VMware employee reference is recommended if your activities weren’t all in public.

VPN (VMware Partner Network) Path
The VPN Path is for employees of our partner companies who lead with passion and by example, who are committed to continuous learning through accreditations and certifications and to making their technical knowledge and expertise available to many. This can take shape of event participation, video, IP generation, as well as public speaking engagements. A VMware employee reference is required for VPN Path candidates.

Apply for vExpert 2015 Second Half

Questions & Updates

For questions about the application process or the vExpert Program, please send email to  vexpert@vmware.com. Be sure to follow @vExpert for updates on the 2016 vExpert program.

Thank you to all who have participated in years past,
Corey Romero & the vExpert Team

Connecting the IT Community – VMware at Interop 2016

View the listing of VMware sessions during the week

If you’re at Interop, don’t miss these key spotlight sessions:

Interop Theater Session
Automating Security Workflows: The SDDC Approach  Bruce Davie, CTO Networking
Wednesday, May 4 – 11:30 – 11:45 AM
Location: Interop Theater in Exhibit Hall
Abstract: Security in the data center today involves mapping policies to the network topology.  This results in imperfect security (the network is under constant change), which is slow to deploy, and even slower to adapt when change is required.  But what if it were possible to move away from the traditional source/destination way of describing policy?  What if you knew deep information about every element in the data center and could take advantage of this “total inventory” to create better security policies that adapt automatically to changing conditions?  With VMware NSX and its SDDC approach to network security, you can. This session will help you start this approach and start your journey to the SDDC.

Storage Vendor Tech Session
The Easiest Path to Hyperconvergence – Virtual SAN and VMware Hyper-Converged Software – Rawlinson Rivera, Principle Architect, Storage & Availability
Wednesday, May 4 – 3:00 – 3:45 PM
Location: Mandalay Bay L
Abstract:  The ubiquitous use of server virtualization and the emergence of the cloud has increased end-user expectations for performance and responsiveness, while adding pressure on IT to lower costs and increase efficiency. Join us in this session to learn how you can easily and cost-effectively extend your virtualized datacenter into a hyper-converged architecture using VMware’s market-leading hypervisor, vSphere, and the hyper-converged storage solution, Virtual SAN.  We’ll specifically examine how Virtual SAN is helping solve traditional IT and storage challenges through a flash-optimized, high performance architecture, unified management and the simplicity of consuming, operating and scaling infrastructure.

VMworld 2016 US & Europe Blogger Passes

vmworld

Each year we provide blogger passes to both the VMworld US and the VMworld Europe conferences. The program is simple: if you are a blogger or have a publication then you should apply for a complementary blogger pass to one of the conferences. We provide the pass, you provide the transportation and hotel accommodations. The blogger passes are full conference passes so you will still be able to register for sessions just the same as a regular conference pass difference is these are free of charge.

Since passes are limited, we will only provide one pass per person per year. Meaning you can go to either VMworld US in Las Vegas or VMworld Europe in Barcelona. Keep in mind that in the past we have always had more passes to Las Vegas then Barcelona and both are limited. U.S. Limit is 50 blogger passes while the Europe conference is limited to 35 blogger passes.

The deadline this year for VMworld US is May 6th at Midnight PST. Deadline for VMworld Europe is June 17th at Midnight PST, which is only a couple of weeks away so hurry and get the application in. If you want to attend VMworld with a blogger pass, please fill out the form right away so we can allocate passes. The email will drop on May 25th to the bloggers who will receive passes for the Las Vegas show.

Not everyone will be chosen for a blogger pass since the passes are limited and I’m sure we will see a tremendous response this year. If plans change please email cromero at vmware.com with the cancelation so we can allocate the blogger pass to another person.

This is going to be a great year once again at VMworld!

Register for the blogger pass at VMworld Blogger Pass Application (VMware employees are excluded)
