In full disclosure: I am a consulting architect for a Dutch VMware partner and system integrator.
The opinions and views expressed on this blog are strictly my own. They do not necessarily reflect the views or opinions of my employer, nor does my employer have any control over this blog: OGD does not review or screen the content before publishing. I am not an OGD blogger.
Besides my regular job, I like to hang around at the Dutch VMware User Group. I’m a regular poster on the forum, help out with organizing the Dutch VMUG Event, was a speaker at the Dutch VMUG Event 2007 and 2009 and am a recognized Dutch VMUG Blogger. Besides the VMUG Events, I also present at other events and seminars, like the annual OGD seminar.
In february 2009, at VMworld Europe ’09, I’ve received the highest available recognition from VMware for my work in the community. You can imagine how great it feels to have been awarded this, after only working in the field for a couple of years and starting this blog as recent as October 2008. In July 2011, I got awarded again for vExpert, so I now hold both the vExpert 2009, vExpert 2011 and vExpert 2012 titles.
Check out more details on the VMware vExpert Directory, or check out my profile here.
Besides that, I also have the usual VCP (3, 4 and 5), VSP and VTSP certifications.
I have successfully passed both the VMware Enterprise Administration (VCE310) and VMware Design (VCD310) on VI3 exams. I have also upgraded to VCAP, and currently hold both the VCAP-DCD and VCAP-DCA certifications on both vSphere 4 and vSphere 5.
Finally, on the 10th of October 2012, I successfully defended my VCDX design. As of the 24th of OCtober 2012, I am VCDX #101. Check out my blurb on the ‘Meet the VMware Certified Design Experts‘ page.
