Thank you to everyone who applied for the vExpert 2020 Second Half and thank you to the vExpert PROs for helping with the voting process!
We are pleased to announce the complete list of vExperts for 2020. You can visit https://vexpert.vmware.com/directory to see a list and profile of each vExpert and the vExpert BU lead subprograms. All of the new and returning 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 VMUG leaders, public speakers, book authors, script writers, VCDX, VMTN community moderators and internal champions among this group.
We are on-boarding 269 new vExperts in addition to the 1,785 we have from the beginning of the year.
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 vExpert PRO’s selected applicants who were particularly engaged with their community on VMware topics and who had developed a substantial personal platform of influence in their communities.
If you were awarded vExpert, you should now have the acceptance email in your inbox which will explain the entire program and what you need to do to be enrolled in our private vExpert community. We will use the email address provided in your vExpert application for this process as well as conducting the on-boarding throughout the next few weeks so hold tight and expect another email from us soon.
Don’t forget to complete your profile at vexpert.vmware.com. We’re looking forward to working with you all.
To look up your name, search the vExpert directory at: https://vexpert.vmware.com/directory
If you were not selected, don’t give up. Engage more with the community and find a vExpert PRO in your region to help guide you to apply for the next opportunity in November, 2020.
If you missed out on the 2020 applications or were not awarded, go to https://vexpert.vmware.com and hit the “notify me when applications open” button and we will email you once the applications are open for 2021.
Corey Romero, the vExpert PRO’s as well as the VMware Social Media Team
