I’m pleased to announce that yesterday I passed the VCAP6.5-DCD exam, thus earning the VMware Certified Implementation Engineer – Data Center Virtulization “milestone” after elevating the VCAP5-DCA exam that I earned back in 2014. The DCD exam has been on my list of things to do since not long after I did the DCA. My […]

Blueberry Lover

Occasionally I’ll wear my “blueberry” VMware certification shirt to work. Some people in the community love these shirts, some people don’t. I, do. Blue also happens to be my favorite color.

Normally I don’t waste time after coming back from a […]
