Accepted as a VMware EUC Champion
Time for a party! This year has been one of personal and career growth. Being active as an EUC Consultant/Architect through my position at Fondo now for over a year, having been accepted as a VMware Certified Trainer, being in the VMware vExpert program for a third year and now being accepted into the VMware EUC Champions, the past year has been utterly awesome.
What is this program you ask? It's an experts-only program that provides a forum for the EUC community and VMware EUC product teams to share a lot of information. Industry trends, new product information and ideas through in-person meetings, networking events, industry conferences and webinars.
What does it take to be one? Well, for starters, being balls deep into EUC, an ability to talk and write about it and being an excellent communicator. Secondly, you need to be able to convey your ideas and opinions in a clear and concise manner. Lastly, and most important, you need to be a team player. The community exists for the sole reason to share knowledge, so that is what is expected.
A few specifics apply as well. You need to be in the VMware vExpert program, be a recognized EUC industry expert, a well-regarded member of the greater EUC community and be a recommended group member. This last piece was provided my a good friend of mine, Wouter Kursten. If you don't know him, give him a follow, as he blogs very well about all things VMware Fling and API at Retouw.nl.
