comdivision:vexpert 2020 and the sub programs

2020

For us in comdivision knowledge sharing is in our genes. Many of us are instructors and teach the majority of VMware products, but we are also very active in the different VMware communities.

What is the vExpert Program all about:

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. The awards are for individuals, not companies, and last for one year. Employees of both customers and partners can receive the awards. In the application, we consider various community activities from the previous year as well as the current year's (only for 2nd half applications) activities in determining who gets awards. We look to see that not only were you active but are still active in the path you chose to apply for.


What it takes:

If you are interested in becoming a vExpert the criteria is simple. We are looking for IT Professionals who are sharing their VMware knowledge and contributing that back to the community. The term "giving back" is defined as going above and beyond your day job. There are several ways to share your knowledge and engage with the community. Some of those activities are blogging, book authoring, magazine articles, CloudCred task writing, active in Facebook groups, forum (VMTN as well as other non VMware) platforms, public speaking, VMUG leadership, videos and so on.


We are proud that we can keep a constant high number of vExperts in our team. For 2020 the following people made it thru the evaluation process:

  • Alain Geenrits
  • Fabian Lenz
  • Jens Hennig
