As so many I received today the mail that I have been selected as a VMware vExpert for 2011. Let me also say a few words about this awesome nomination!
I did not expect this, so I was completely surprised when I opened my e-mail this morning after some tweets passing by about the nomination regarding the VMware vExpert 2011 program. First I would like to take this opportunity to thank John Troyer and everyone involved in the virtualization and social community for awarding me with this great award! As I heard the quality of the candidates and their work were extremely high this year. So that makes me more than happy I am selected.
The first batch of vExpert 2011 designations have been sent out. It appears a small second batch of designations and decline notices will be sent out the next day. So some will be happy, others not. I say, if you're passionate and have something to say and want to share, keep trying. It's a great reward for your work and time you spent on.
