VMware vExpert 2011

I'm not usually in to the chest-thumping thing, but I'm proud to have been selected as a VMware vExpert for the third year in a row (which also happens to be every year the award has been given).

While I like to think I'm a bit of an expert when it comes to VMware, the award is really a recognition of the work I've done to promote VMware—and virtualization in general—through my volunteer work on the leadership team of the Kansas City VMware User Group (kcvmug).

It's been great to be a part of the team that helped grow our VMUG from a couple dozen regular attendees to a group that regularly sees 80+ members at "regular" meetings and 400+ attendees at our annual all-day "regional" meeting.

My thanks go out to VMware for supporting the program, John Troyer for his "above and beyond" efforts to launch and add value to the program over the years, and his anonymous team of judges for giving me the nod. But most of all, I want to thank my fellow kcvmug leaders, past (Kevin Davidson, Ron Armstrong, Ryan MeltonJoe Adams) and present (Ben ClaytonTony Lux); without you, the VMUG wouldn't be what it is today.
