Simon Gallagher, one of the organisers of the UK VMUG sent an email out today asking for people to considering submitting “papers” for the UK National VMUG. Personally I think this is a great idea. I have enjoyed my trips to the UK VMUG and found the caliber of people at these events to be of the highest grade, with the sessions being as good as what you find at VMworld. This is a summary of Simon’s email: Hello friend of LonVMUG..(!), We (the LonVMUG committee) are putting together plans for the national UK VMUG on November 21st in Solihull, Brum (National Motorcycle museum). As you know I’m continually pushing for community content and ensuring that we as a VMUG provide the best community content of any VMUG, as well as excellent official VMware and sponsor content, as such I’ve opened up the community ‘call for papers’ for this event.

Its that time of year again, its the VMware vExpert 2013 announcements, and I am proud to say that I have been awarded the vExpert Status for 2013. This is the second year in a row that I have been awarded this status, which I find truly an honour. The VMware vExpert status brings you into quite an exclusive club. It shows to the community that you are actively involved in helping and providing information and knowledge, and available to people. Personally I work very hard to try to pass information on that I learn daily, and hopefully people enjoy reading my blog site, and find the information useful. The full list of vExpert 2013 awardees is shown below, and the original blog article can be read by clicking here. One of the best things about vExperts is the constant availability on social media.

VMware has launched a new site called Cloud Credibility. Its a kind of fun interactive online game where you can build up your #cloudcred. So what is CloudCred? According to the cloudcredibility.com site it is: If you know your stuff when it comes to the cloud, then you’ve got Cloud Cred. Cloud Cred is the hub for all things cloud related. The game is your gateway to building your cloud expertise, broadening your professional network and earning rewards and certifications based on your Cloud Cred score. Looks kinda fun and interesting, I have signed up and going to try to see what I can achieve. If nothing else, you can have the chance to win a trip for 2 to VMworld Barcelona. That in itself is surely worth signing up for. Im off to a good start, having completed two tasks, I now have a score of 502.
