The vExpert Programme is now open to applications for the second half of 2020, so if you haven't already applied, go do it now! You've got till the 25th June 2020! =) https://blogs.vmware.com/vexpert/2020/05/31/vexpert-applications-are-open-dont-miss-out/ So I've written quite a number of blogs about how and why you should get involved in the vExpert community, so I'm … Continue reading vExpert Applications now open – how the community has helped during lockdown.
Like many vExperts, waiting for the announcement for 2020 has been a little nerve-wrecking. 2019 was a very busy year for me, got made redundant from VMware, welcomed my 2nd child into this world and then joined CloudHealth by VMware in an EMEA-wide role, and then pretty much kissed goodbye to my free time as … Continue reading VMware vExpert Community – 2020
So it’s been 3 month since I last posted an entry on my blog, and as I previously mentioned it’s been such a busy period in my life, both professionally and personally! I’ve been at CloudHealth for 6 months now, and those months have flown by so quickly.... plus my youngest daughter has just turned … Continue reading VMworld 2019 Europe
Over the Christmas period I started to plan out what I wanted to blog about at the start of 2019. I realised during my vExpert application (damn, it’s so much more stringent now!!) that I haven’t blogged as much as I used to – and that’s mainly because I didn’t want to just post meaningless … Continue reading My Big Bets for 2019 – Intro
Phew.... *sigh of relief* ..... thankfully this year I've made the cut again for the vExpert vSAN track! =) Almost didn't make it as I was on holiday during the application process and missed the original deadline. Thankfully the application was still live so I sneaked in an application and sent my apologies to the vExpert … Continue reading VMware vExpert vSAN 2018 Announced
So last Thursday/Friday the vExpert slack channel was awash with lots of nervous energy as people were eagerly waiting for the announcement to see if they had been accepted back into the vExpert program for 2018.... Strange, but to me it seemed that everyone was a little bit more nervous this year then previous years! … Continue reading vExpert 2018 Award Announcement
So this blog post has been a bit late coming, mainly due to me coming back from Barcelona with a heavy chest infection and cold... and when you're sick, you tend to procrastinate alot... =) Looks like all the excessive late nights, early morning starts, long days, freezing cold breakout rooms (was anyone else cold??) … Continue reading VMworld 2017 Europe Wrap Up….

It's that time of year again when the VMware community starts to cast their votes as to which blog should be crowned "Top vBlog" for 2017...! This year Duncan Epping (http://www.yellow-bricks.com/) and Frank Denneman (http://frankdenneman.nl) have decided to withdraw their blogs from the voting, which is admirable as they both always feature in the top 5 … Continue reading Voting now open for Top vBlog 2017!
