The call for content for Tech Talks is officially open! Submit by JUNE 30TH for a chance to present:

https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSdtpMS5ychaZN__1eY7rJh6eOHKfgIGSCbzDgYVVJojGo9DQ/viewform

Wait, what?

Good question Captain Jean Luc Picard. Let’s answer that, plus a few more.

  1. What is a Tech Talk?

A Tech Talk is a brief presentation by community members on subjects they believe will be of interest to other members. It is an easy entry into conference speaking. Each Tech Talk will be scheduled as 12 minutes or 27 minutes. As a content contributor, it is up to you to select as accurately as possible which time window will work best for your topic in the Google form. Tech Talks will be recorded and published later on the vBrownBag Youtube channel. For examples: 2016 #vBrownBag Tech Talks at VMworld

  1. What is the criteria for each Tech Talk?

To submit a topic for consideration, you must provide a Title and Session Summary. Depending on how many submissions are received, we may have to be selective. Please keep this information brief, interesting, and know that this content may be published publicly to promote your talk. We will do our best to select at least 1 topic per content contributor.

  1. Where will these Tech Talks take place at VMworld US and Europe? What AV will be available?

These will be hosted at the VMTN Community area in VMvillage at both VMworld US and VMworld Europe. We will have facilities to capture your slides and (Internet access willing) live demos using a Mac.

We will provide all the equipment for recording and presenting. Online, TechTalks will be live streamed for people who will not be at VMworld to watch. They will also be video recorded and published to YouTube post VMworld.

  1. What does the VMTN and vBrownBag partnership mean?

This partnership means promotion and resources for the Tech Talks. All Tech Talks will be promoted to the community through VMware social channels, VMware blogs, and vBrownBag’s channels. VMTN and vBrownBag will be working closely together to solidify a schedule based on content submissions, and feature it in ScheduleBuilder for both VMworld U.S. and Europe.

This is the first-year Tech Talks will be featured in VMworld ScheduleBuilder. This means a bigger audience, higher awareness for vBrownBag and VMTN community programs, and more promotional resources provided by VMware to optimize the Tech Talk program’s success.

VMTN has sponsored a select number of passes for Tech Talk presenters if they are unable to obtain their own. You must specify in the submission form if a pass is needed. Available passes are limited.

  1. This sounds great! Where do I sign-up?

Submit your Tech Talk content here: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSdtpMS5ycha-ZN__1eY7rJh6eOHKfgIGSCbzDgYVVJojGo9DQ/viewform

The call for content closes JUNE 30th. Don’t miss the opportunity to attend VMworld, stay connected with your community, and share your knowledge on-stage. Please submit ASAP We would be excited to have you!

Follow these channels on Twitter for any updates on the VMTN Tech Talks powered by vBrownBag program: @VMTNcommunity and @vBrownBag. Further questions? Reach out to communitygroup@vmware.com.

 

Congratulations to our Newest Community Warrior: @bayupw

*Submit a nomination for the next Community Warrior*

I am excited to announce, congratulate, and celebrate the newest Community Warrior, @bayupw. If you have spent time in the NSX Community on VMTN, it is likely that you have engaged with Bayu. Both of his nominators, @MikeWright1971 and @rajeevsrikant sent me not 1, but 3+ examples each of unique instances where Bayu came to their aide in this forum… Check out an example.

Bayu is an active VMware community member, having achieved master status on communities (2,000+ points). He is a valued member of the VMTN User Moderator Program, is heavily involved in VMUG, on social, and in the VMware vExpert program. Congratulations @bayupw, this badge is extremely well deserved!

As an NSX expert (currently on the journey to achieving his VCDX-NV), and someone who has truly worked on the cutting edge with this technology, I was excited to have the opportunity to pick his brain…

K: What is your history on the VMTN forums?

B: I signed up for the VMTN communities back in 2009 when I was working on Cisco, learning how VMware ESX 3.5 and VMware VDI works. VMware became more important for me when I had to help a customer deploy Cisco Nexus 1000v on VMware vSphere ESXi version 4… That’s when I started to learn and study for my first VCP. I was only a lurker, or silent reader, at first and only began to contribute in the communities after I joined VMware Professional Services in Jan 2013. I got involved on VMTN & with VMUG, writing some VMware related blog posts and became a VMware vExpert.

I can see that people in the VMTN communities have similar questions and challenges to my customers and I know the answers. Since realizing that, I’ve decided to contribute more to the communities by answering those questions during my spare time. I participate in the communities as a way of sharing knowledge and also learning from others through their questions and answers.

The following communities are currently in my browser’s bookmark bar: VMware NSX, vRNI, vSphere vNetwork, vCloud Director and vCloud Networking and Security.

K: Tell me about your experience working for VMware.

B: I am an ex-VMware Professional Services employee, where I was a Senior Consultant covering SEAK (South East Asia & Korea) region for 3 and a half years. I was focusing on vCloud Director and VMware NSX Design & Deploy, I started with small environments in the earlier version of NSX-v 6.0.x and worked up to complex multi-sites deployments on a quite recent version of NSX-v 6.2.x. I also had some chances to work on other projects such as vSphere, SRM, vCloud Director and vRealize Automation.

K: As someone with a background that has fully exposed them to VMware NSX and it’s use cases, why do you think it’s important for users to adopt NSX?

B: NSX is really a transformational technology that brings the answer for today’s networking and security challenges. NSX changes the way networks have been built and operate, it allows us to manage and provision network & security services such as virtual logical switches, routers, firewalls, load balancers and virtual private networks independently of the underlying hardware. The physical networking devices simply become the transport for forwarding packets as the underlay networks and the NSX virtual networks are overlaid.

What it means for enterprises, is that NSX helps IT organizations change their network & security operations to make them much more agile, which is what server virtualization like VMware vSphere has offered for more than a decade.

K: How can readers contact/connect with you?

B: Twitter: @bayupw https://twitter.com/bayupw

VMTN: @bayupw https://communities.vmware.com/people/bayupw

Also, keep an eye out for him on the shelves, as Bayu and an associate from VMware’s NSBU are working on a VMware NSX book that is targeted to be completed by the end of this year.
Congratulations again @bayupw.

How to apply for vExpert 2017 as well as the vExpert NSX & vExpert vSAN Sub-Programs

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.

Community Warrior: Cheers to 10 Years

*With the below announcement, nominations are now open for the next Community Warrior*

Please join me in congratulating VMware Technology Network’s newest Community Warrior. This man is a jack-of-all-VMware products, dedicated to sharing his knowledge with others, and well known throughout the communities… @a.p.… Congratulations!!

André has several reasons to be proud of his involvement on VMTN. I will take the liberty to name a few…

  • May 18 André celebrated 10 years of membership on VMTN
  • He holds the #1 spot on the All-Time Communities Leaderboard
  • He has achieved both vExpert and User Moderator status several years in a row
  • His peers, for example @Wila who nominated him, speak of his knowledge and selflessness…

He’s the real warrior as he is able to – and does – help out all across the board with the most advanced topics. He has an incredible amount of knowledge and is very good at getting problems solved.”

The facts outlined above speak volumes, check out what André had to say for himself:

K: How were you originally introduced to communities and what inspired you to stay involved?

A: I subscribed to VMTN after moving to a new company – a VMware partner – almost exactly 10 years ago. For the first ~2 years I used communities as a resource to learn and search for help. Inspired by all these great people on VMTN, like Troy, Ulli, Woody, Brian, Wil, and many others, I started contributing, and I still enjoy helping people around the globe, no matter whether it’s a newbie question, or an issue which requires advanced troubleshooting. Another reason for me to stay active in the communities is that I’ve been a user moderator several years now.

K: What have you gained through your involvement with VMTN?

A: Short version: Knowledge and friends!

Long version: VMTN is one of the most active communities that I’m aware of. As an IT consultant it’s important for me to be up to date. Vendor documentations usually describe how things are supposed to work, but the communities also contain a lot of information about issues, and possible fixes, quite often prior to the knowledge base. It’s always great if users provide feedback once their issues are resolved. Over the years, quite some users contacted me to say thanks. What more could one want?

K: What is your area of expertise when it comes to VMware products?

A: My main focus is on server and client virtualization, i.e. vCenter Server, ESXi, Horizon View. In most cases my customer projects include setting up the required servers, networking, SAN, storage, and backup too. I’m also familiar with several other VMware products, but cannot focus on a single vendor’s products.

K: How did you become so well versed in the technical depths of so many products?

A: I’ve always been interested in technologies, and spend a lot of time reading documentations, KB articles, and community posts as well as “playing” with the products in my test lab. I also attended a few trainings at the beginning, and learned a lot from colleagues. It’s certainly also a matter of time, and experience to get the technical depth. I also had the opportunity to work as a Technical Editor on Brian Atkinson’s VCP-DCV 5.5 study guide, which “forced” me to deep dive into several product features.

K: What method would you recommend for someone trying to attain your level of knowledge?

A: Simply try to forget a lot of what you learned, and you will soon be on my level ;-)))

Seriously, the method (if it can be called a method at all) is to be interested, work with passion, willing to spend time, reading a lot, talking with others (face-to-face or e.g. on VMTN), setting up a test lab, break and fix. If possible, attend a training to get a good base knowledge on which you can build upon.

Thanks André for the amazing support and content you have added to communities over the past 10 years! Congratulations and Happy Anniversary!

If you’d like to contact André, please reach out to him by messaging him on VMTN: @a.p.

Discover VMware Technology Network: 7 Ways to Gain Points

This is the second blog in a series. See the first blog here: VMTN Global Forums

The foundation of VMware Technology Network is peer-to-peer support and engagement. Community is powered by human connection – the warm feeling of helping another person and the satisfaction of collaborating to solve a problem.

Screen Shot 2017-05-11 at 11.05.53 AM

And then there’s the added bonus to participation, the cherry on top, gaining points. The happiness when your answer is marked correct and you can almost hear the points adding up. A little competition to spice things up never hurts, right?

If competition is something you thrive on, and you went to get onto the Weekly, or All-time communities leaderboard (half-way down the homepage), I’m here to help. These are the 7 ways you can gain points on communities:

 

 

  1. Correct Answer – 10 Points. Having an answered marked as correct is the most lucrative way to gain points. Take advantage of the Browse feature to identify unanswered questions. Opt-in to Follow communities you are interested in so you get email notifications & they are added to your My Communities list. Or even bookmark your favorite communities.Screen Shot 2017-05-10 at 3.14.22 PM
  1. Helpful Answer – 6 Points. If you know a partial answer to a question, or a resource that might shed some light, go ahead and post it. An answer doesn’t have to be perfect, a user can mark your response as helpful and you still receive points.
  1. Reply to an Answer – 1 Point. Sometimes you will answer a question and the user will forget to mark it correct. It happens! Sometimes, you have a comment to add, like, “thanks for posting, this was helpful.” Engagement is always rewarded. As a contributor, you will receive 1 point for taking the time to reply to a question.
  1. Create a Document – 1 Point. Did you write a white paper, case study, or a study guide around a VMware product or solution? Post it on communities. Not only are you sharing your knowledge, helping others, and expanding your clout, you gain a point for doing so.
  1. Create a BlogPost – 1 Point. If you don’t host a personal blog, but have something to say, post a blog to your community profile. This is low maintenance blogging, where you’ll receive views, but have very little up-keep. If you do host a blog, post an abstract and a link to your blog on communities. The community’s audience wants to read the technical content being written. Plus, every blog you post gains you a point.
  1. Post a Status Update – 1 Point. This is a lesser known functionality on communities. Every user has the option to follow other users. To follow someone, visit that user’s profile by clicking on their username, or searching their username. When you visit their profile, select Follow in the bottom right corner. Follow Example
  • Make sure you select the option to follow them in your Connections Stream in the Follow dropdown. View your Connections Stream by clicking News in your header. The Connections Stream option will be on the left side-bar. Click and be brought here:Screen Shot 2017-05-11 at 10.49.38 AM
  • From here you will be able to post a status, see recent activity of those you follow, and filter your view. You will also receive notifications in your VMTN inbox (@) when a user you follow posts a status, and vis versa. Here you can post links to cool resources or share exciting news, like just having deployed vSAN, and gain a point.
  1. Have Someone like your Status Update – 1 Point. Always post relevant and technically informative resources. Spam and marketing are discouraged on communities. Getting status likes is all about appealing to your audience. To gain more followers organically, be active consistently on the communities, and promote your activity via social media.

While utilizing these 7 methods, keep in mind that as a community member, one must give to receive. Be sure to always mark answers correct or helpful on your queries, like other user’s status updates, and respond to questions. Visit communities to start gaining points now!

For further information on status/badge levels, gaining points, and gamification visit the Community Rewards Points System FAQ or email the VMTN Community Manager, katieb@vmware.com.

Turn the (App) Volume up for our Newest Community Warrior

Congratulations to this week’s VMware Community Warrior: @Ray_Handels. I could write Volumes about our newest 2017 Hall of Famer *pause for laughter* but his activity in the VMware App Volumes Community speaks for itself (1,151 points…).

Not a workstation management expert? Check out this brief video introduction:

Ray was nominated by sachindsharma (featured in the video above) for his involvement within the community, his seat on the App Volumes customer council, and his involvement in testing the latest and greatest App Volume builds as they roll out.

What makes Ray remarkable, is that he maintains a strong relationship upstream, with the VMware product team, and downstream, with customers like himself. He provides support to others in the forums, listens, and constructively communicates to the VMware product teams to improve App Volumes for all users.

Learn a bit more about how Ray manages these relationships…

K: What makes you passionate about VMware App Volumes and answering community questions?

R: I have been in workstation management for over 8 years but haven’t seen anything like App Volumes (formerly known as CloudVolumes) for our environment. The technique and idea, providing the application to the user while he is actually logging in, was a perfect fit for our business model as we never know what user is logging in to what machine.

Also, the writable volume feature enables us to provide users with a virtual machine, but they don’t even know that they are actually using a virtual machine because they get all of their applications and settings. Looking at the applications progress from CloudVolumes 1.8 (yes, we did use that version) to 2.12.1, which we are using now, it’s great to see where the program is going.

K: You have a unique relationship with the VMware App Volumes product team… Tell me a bit about that.

R: We started using the application as one of the first customers worldwide and really believed in it’s technical features. Because the old team was (and still is) very customer driven we had multiple sessions with people like Jason Marshall (product engineering) and Matt Connover about what features we would like to see added to the product, and tested a lot of those features for them. This gave us a unique opportunity to be a part of the building process for App Volumes.

K: How can community members get as involved with our product teams as you are?

R: I’d say the best way to start is to be active on the forums, not only to ask questions and take information, but also to share knowledge with other customers. The larger and more active the user base, the better the products will be for customers and users.

A Certified Community Warrior

*With the below announcement, nominations are now open for the next Community Warrior*

Are you an individual who has achieved a VMware certification in the past 10 years? If so, you may recognize our newest Community Warrior’s handle: @scott28tt. Congratulations to Scott Vessey!

Screen Shot 2017-04-24 at 11.42.54 AM

Scott is a VMware employee who goes above and beyond his call of duty in helping the community. Scott holds over 14,000 community points, with 7,000+ in the Certification community, where he answers questions daily, helping others achieve their VCA, VCP, VCAP, VCIX, and VCDX.

I encourage anyone working towards passing these exams to visit the forums for advice, resources, and content provided by others, like Scott, who have been in your shoes. This information is invaluable.

Thanks for submitting such a well-deserved nomination lilesj!

I had a chance to pick Scott’s brain on behalf of the community…

Tell us a bit about what you do at VMware.

The organization I work for designs, develops, and manages all field-specific training programs, both technical and non-technical, for employees and partners. I’ve worked at VMware for just over 5 years, and my current role is to help the technical pre-sales folks in EMEA be the best at what they do!

I work with EMEA Systems Engineering leadership and managers to help determine who needs to know what, reviewing existing and desired skill levels, and creating and rolling out both corporate-wide and locally-developed training programs.

Ah, so customer certification is not a part of your day-to-day responsibilities. What makes you passionate about helping customers who post in the certification communities?

This goes back to when I worked as a VMware Certified Instructor – I took myself online into the communities and into other forums as an extension of the kinds of discussions that would be had in the classroom with students working towards their certification. I found there were a lot of people online who needed guidance and help – what to me was simple, everyday knowledge, could be very useful for others to understand.

What was the most recent VMware certification you received and what was the first?

Passing the VCP550D exam to recertify my VCP5-DCV, which also extended my VCP4-DCV, VCP3, and my first VMware certification – VCP2
