WOW! I have not received the official confirmation yet, but last night John Troyer posted a new entry on the VMware blogs announcing the 2013 vExpert list, and I’m one of 579 on the list! My friend Tony Foster (b | l | t) noticed and shot me a quick email. I almost dropped my phone when I saw the email!
WOW! I cannot keep saying it!
The official release announcement is located here. I am located by name and by Twitter handle @kleegeek.
Thank you John Troyer, Corey Romero, and the VMware Social Media & Community Team for giving me this award! I don’t think you all know how much this means to me, and I really appreciate it. I do everything that I can to contribute to the technical communities through blogging and speaking opportunities, and it warms my heart to know that my contributions are valued.
What a fantastic summer this is shaping up to be! I am speaking at the SQL PASS Summit in October, was just granted VMware vExpert for 2013, and the summer is not even over yet! Who know what else this summer will bring?
