Congratulations to all the vExperts from Australia, New Zealand & Singapore. It's an honour to be included with such great local talent.
Back in 2010, Greg Mulholland was the only vExpert that I actually knew in Australia. Now we have 23 in Australia, and 5 in New Zealand & Singapore.
It's great to see Melbourne VMUG members dominate the list of vExperts in our region. This is probably why the Melbourne VMUG has such a great turnout and so many community sessions.
You can find the complete list in the official announcement. As the announcement says, the vExpert award is not a technical certification or a measure of VMware expertise, it's awarded to people who were particularly engaged with their community and who had developed a substantial personal platform of influence in those communities.
[Please let me know of any corrections]
I'm looking forward to catching up with more of the vExperts at VMworld, vForum, and vBeers.
For anyone that wants to become part of the community, don't just put your toe in water, jump in - the water's fine. Go to your next local VMUG to find out more.
