The VMware Modern Applications Platform team is excited to announce the Application Modernization vExpert program for 2021. If you’re not familiar with vExpert, the program is designed to recognize individuals who are passionate about sharing their knowledge of VMware technologies with the broader community.
What is an Application Modernization vExpert?
Individuals who are awarded Application Modernization vExpert status are the cream of the crop when it comes to application modernization knowledge, including platforms that modern applications run on. They’re advocates of VMware Tanzu—a portfolio of VMware products and services for modernizing applications and infrastructure—as well as other application platforms running on VMware solutions. vExperts love “giving back” to the community by sharing their knowledge with their peers, whether through blogging, creating tutorials, or speaking at events like VMworld, VMUG, and vBrownbag.
Benefits of the Application Modernization vExpert Program
Becoming an Application Modernization vExpert comes with unique perks. In addition to the vExpert title and the cool new badge, VMware will provide a number of great opportunities to give you the recognition you deserve.
Here’s what Application Modernization vExperts gain:
Amplification of the articles you write through VMware channels, such as the Tanzu social media channels and Modern Apps Ninja blog
Exposure at VMware events, including leading conferences like VMworld
Opportunities to interface with and provide feedback to the VMware Tanzu product, marketing, and engineering teams, casting your influence on the leading Kubernetes solutions in the industry
Visit the vExpert website for the full list of vExpert program benefits.
How to apply to the Application Modernization vExpert program
To be eligible to apply, you must be a recognized 2021 vExpert who is already evangelizing technologies around Kubernetes, application modernization, and modern apps platforms. You can apply via the vExpert portal; we will be accepting applications until March 5. Our team will review applications received by that date throughout the rest of the month and will continue to review Application Modernization vExpert applications on a yearly basis.
If you missed the vExpert 2021 application, you can sign up to be notified when applications open again for the second half of the year.
We can’t wait to start this new journey with you and the Application Modernization vExpert community!
