Dear readers, it’s been a long time since I’ve been actively posting on this blog, the reasons being mainly important changes in my life, both professional and personal. First of all, I’ve switched from Systems Administrator at HSBC Czech Republic to Presales Consultant at NextiraOne Czech Republic. This has been a very fundamental change in my professional life since I not only switched from a very technical position to a more sales oriented position (which still requires adequate technical knowledge) but also I switched from being an “end-user” to being a consultant at a systems integrator. You can imagine that it has taken some time to adapt 🙂 Secondly, as the kids grow, they require more and more attention and this also impact my ability to stay behind the computer screen and write!
To get back to this post’s title, I am immensely honored and humbled likewise to have been nominated for the first time this year a VMware vExpert 2013! I take this not only as an acknowledgement of my past and present activities in evangelizing VMware products and solutions, but also as a challenge on delivering more regular contributions to the VMware Community as a whole. There are now three vExperts in the Czech Republic, with my mate @novakkkarel (blog: http://www.vmware-veeam.cz/) being vExpert for the second year in a row, and @fojta (http://fojta.wordpress.com/) from VMware (our Czech VCDX!) being also a new vExpert.
I would like to extend great thanks to John Troyer and his team for making this possible. This year’s vExpert nominations must have required a lot of work for them since there have been around 850 applications, and about 580 nominees.
That will be all for today, my friends, because I spent the day running a live demo of VMware Horizon View and also discussing with participants about the advantages of VMware Mirage. If you want to discuss about these products, feel free to DM me on twitter and we can talk about it 🙂
Thanks and wish you all a nice evening!
