Apply for Nutanix Technology Champion (NTC) 2017

Yesterday, 2016-10-11, Nutanix opened the application for their Nutanix Technical Champion Program (NTC) for 2017. This will be the third year for this program and the NTC was actually opening the Nutanix .Next user conferance in Las Vegas in June 2016 which was pretty cool in my opinion. So if you’re a Nutanix expert that constantly contribute to the community you should apply via this link for NTC before 7:th November 2016.


The following are some of the criteria used by the panel members when they select the NTCs:
