About this blog
This blog will track my journey through learning everything on VMware up to the VCP and VCAP level on the four tracks. There are many different characters on this site, mostly inspired by philosophers, however their content is all written by me (Eric) and can be found on the virtual staff roster. In order to create a more colorful and gender-balanced collection of virtual contributors, many of these characters have been fictionalized or added as fanfare to modern figures. Before each blog, I try to think which signature thinking style would be best to approach that research topic. The reason I made this site is because I work full-time as a VMware admin and I wanted to give back to VMware for creating such a challenging and interesting industry. Also, I wanted to push myself keep learning and stay on top of the field.
I do my best to curate the most important VMware news every day on Twitter @vNetworking. Also, the blogs themselves will be organized by the forum section at site's root, customnet.com. For an active VMware research forum where you can get help in real time with your virtual troubleshooting, I encourage you to sign up on the VMTN forums (VMware Technology Network). For fun and learning, I strongly recommend that you sign up for CloudCredibility.com and give that a try. I regret not signing up there sooner and you can get points for verified learning of VMware concepts and compete in global rankings and it is a very impressive site!
You may interact with the forums on this site if you like, but it's mainly there to organize these blogs into an index (by certification track) rather than have them in a large bucket.
