As we close the first quarter of 2015, which in itself is simply amazing that it is gone, I wanted to start tracking my 2015 speaking engagements which include a mostly some VCDX Workshops, but it also looks like I will be at a VMUG or two presenting a Keynote. I wanted to provide the abstracts as well in case other VMUG’s were interested.
VMware Certified Design Experts are an elite group of architects leading virtualization implementations around the world. Certification is achieved through the Design Defense where all candidates must submit and successfully defend a production-ready VMware Solution before a panel of veteran VCDX-holders. This highly interactive session is a complete and engaging deep dive into the VCDX Process providing tips and success strategies for: solution design selection and development; the VCDX application and supporting documentation; creation and delivery of the design overview; the VCDX design scenario; and the VCDX troubleshooting scenario. If you are pursuing the VCDX credential, the VCDX Workshop is the perfect start to your journey.
This keynote presented by Chris Colotti, Principal Architect and VCDX Evangelist focusses on the aspects of personal growth and professional development that helped him reach the level he is today. You will learn how developing your personal growth and your career does not just happen. He will also discuss the advantages of VMware Certification specifically the VMware Certified Design Expert program and how just going through the process can help you grow. If you or your user group members have ever struggled with personal growth and professional development, this keynote could help many of them. This session will be presented “Ted Talk” style using quotes, images, and some VMware specific certification content.
Personal Note: I am pretty excited about this presentation. I’ve built it from the ground up as my first attempt at this style of presentation. This is certainly more of a motivational keynote than technical, but I think it is both a challenge itself helping me to personally grow. Funny how that works out.
