In a blog post on the VMware website, Corey Romero described the vExpert program as:
"I want to personally thank everyone who applied and point out that a “vExpert” is not a technical certification or even a general measure of VMware expertise. The judges selected people who were particularly engaged with their community and who had developed a substantial personal platform of influence in those communities. There were a lot of very smart, very accomplished people, even VCDXs, that weren’t named as vExpert this year."
Congratulations to my fellow vExperts. I am looking forward to be working with you all throughout this year!
