VMware Announces Vexpert Program for 2013

VMware has announced its vExpert Program for 2013. The global program is open to the VMware-connected community including influencers, partners and customers. VMware identifies and encourages people who have made significant contributions to the VMware community to join the program. VMware announces this program every year bringing together the vExperts who make some of the most important contributions to the VMware community. vExperts must re-apply every year to be considered part of the program and, in exchange receive access to private betas, free licenses, early access briefings, exclusive events, free access to VMworld conference materials online, and other opportunities to interact with VMware product teams.

They also get access to a private community and networking opportunities.  VMware invites the community to join the vExpert 2013 Program and encourage individuals to apply before April 15, 2013 at midnight PDT.

Criteria for participation:

There are three paths to being designated a vExpert. Each path takes into account the accomplishments and activities over the last year:

·  Evangelist Path: includes book authors, bloggers, tool builders, public speakers, VMTN contributors, and other IT professionals who share their knowledge and passion with others with the leverage of a personal public platform to reach many people, also open for VMware employees

·  Customer Path: is for leaders from VMware customer organizations, who have worked with VMware to build success stories, act as customer references, given public interviews, spoken at conferences, or were VMUG leaders

·  VPN (VMware Partner Network) Path: open for employees of VMware’s partner companies (VMware employee reference is required)
