vExpert 2012

Every year VMware’s Social Media Guru John Troyer @jtroyer and now Alex Maier @lxmaier, choose vExperts which are:

“individuals who have significantly contributed to the community of VMware users over the past year. The title is awarded to individuals (not employers) for their commitment to sharing their knowledge and passion for VMware technology above and beyond their job requirements.”

As of yesterday I made it to that coveted list 🙂 I couldn’t be more happier 🙂

Passed the VCP5

I passed the VCP5 yesterday. Hurray!
Without telling to much, you really need to know the whole range of the new vSphere features.(and the old ones 🙂
The study guides I used are:
Simon Long’s VCP5 Questions; Good questions on VCP5. A bit easy though.

vReference Documentation Notes; Really enjoyed reading these, found lots of “Oh I didn’t know that” facts in there 🙂

Jason Langer and Josh Coen Notes; Good overview of the VCP5 BluePrint.

vInfrastructure.it VCP5 links and Notes and lots of other good stuff; Must visit if studying for the VCP5.

And Scott Lowe’s Mastering vSphere 5. Excellent book, but will in no way make you “master” vSpere 5.

Other Links for VCP5 info and even more links:
