For those of you who are new to the VMware vExpert program i have borrowed some text describing the program from blogs.vmware.com

The VMware vExpert program is VMware’s global evangelism and advocacy program. The program is designed to put VMware’s marketing resources towards your advocacy efforts. Promotion of your articles, exposure at our global events, co-op advertising, traffic analysis, and early access to beta programs and VMware’s roadmap

There is an example vExpert Application available here if you need some inspiration for your application.

There are quite a few vExpert benefits and apart early access programs, slack channel access, beta access the 365-day eval licenses for most products for home lab usage has been really really useful over the years i have been in the program which is since 2013.  I’ll do my best to earn the status this year as well.
