2018 1st Quarter



2018 So Far …

2018 has started extremely well for myself, the first event which I was privileged to attend was vRetreat in London on 16th February, this was a great event hosted by Patrick Redknap, sponsored by Cohesity and Zerto, my full write up of the day can be found here.



Next up on 22nd February we had the first North East VMUG event of 2018 where we smashed our attendance figures with five new sponsors, some great VMware Keynotes and three excellent community sessions, the recap of the event can be found here.

Next up we had our very first North East AWS User group event, this is a joint venture by myself and Kyle Jenner, where we rebooted the local AWS User group in Newcastle, my recap of the first event can be found here.

Finally on Friday 9th March the IT community was eagerly awaiting (Pressing F9) the announcement of the 2018 vExpert Program!! Luckily for me I received the notification email confirming for the 3rd year running I was accepted onto the program, as you can tell I’m very happy about been involved and contributing to the program. This program is huge as is very professionally run by the vExpert Team and is driven by the VMware vExpert community. I’m honored to have made the cut for the 3rd year running.
