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

How can our community members contact you with any follow-up questions?

Congratulations again Scott – thanks for all of your contributions to VMTN! I speak for the community when I say, thanks for cutting down queries to help so many customers achieve certifications. You are truly a Community Warrior.

Discover VMware Technology Network – Series 1

Discover VMTN is a blog series that will bring to light the features and functionality within the communities platform that are lesser known, but incredibly useful. This week we start with…

VMTN Global Forums by Language

VMware has offices in 20+ countries, vmware.com has 30+ localized sites, but last month, VMware Technology Network had only a few scatted forums dedicated to enabling peer-to-peer conversations for our global customers.

That gap has been filled with the launch of VMTN Global Forums.

Screen Shot 2017-03-29 at 3.13.23 PM

Communities are an integral part of being a VMware customer. When a customer buys, deploys, or builds on a VMware product, they become a part of the VMware Technology Network, or as our bigger community ecosystem is sometimes called, the vCommunity. VMTN Global Forums by Language now provides a platform to share knowledge, resources, opinions, and gain support, for customers worldwide.

These Forums each have a committed moderator who regulates content to ensure that there is no third-party advertising, and that VMTN’s Code of Conduct is maintained. Check out our list of new Forums and their moderators:

French: @LucD ; @FranckRookie

Italian: @ldelloca

Polish: @inleo

Russian: @AntonVZhbankov

Spanish: @dquintana

Brazilian Portuguese: @rcporto

Japanese: @gowatana

Arabic: @MRoushdy

German: @wila ; @peetz ; @schepp ; @a.p.

Turkish: @ademyetim

Indonesian:@bayupw

So now it comes down to this… Did you deploy a VMware product today? How? Are you upgrading your vSphere from 5.5 to 6? Have you? Head to the forums and engage, whether it’s answering discussions or starting them – from where ever you are in the world.
