More Aussie vExperts / VCDX’s

Back in April, I did a post when VMware announced 754 vExperts for 2014. This week, 123 were named vExperts from the Q2 nominations.

That adds another 2 Aussie vExperts to the list; Tim Williams (@ymmit85) and Matthew Healy (@matt232h). By my count, we now have 24 vExperts in Australia.
Melbourne: 17
Brisbane: 4
Perth: 2
Sydney:1 (Nick Marshall moved to USA VMware HQ)

vExpert 2014 Q3 nominations are open until September 2014. Nominate yourself, or someone that’s done a lot for the community. This is the last chance for 2014.

VCDX

Also this week, the latest round of successful VCDX’s were announced, and that includes two from Melbourne. Congratulations VCDX-DV #135 Harsha Hosur (@harsha_hosur) and VCDX-DV #139 Andrew Brydon.(@sidbrydon).

Melbourne is definitely the virtualisation capital of Australia with 17 vExperts, and 6 VCDX’s. (10 VCDX’s in total across Australia). Although all throughout Australia there’s a great virtualisation community, which you’ll see at vForum plus a collaborative project coming soon….
