As I put thought into how and what I wanted to discuss during the vDM 30-in-30 challenge, I’ve decided the weekend posts will be a break from the technical posts I have always favored. For the Saturday installments I am going to recommend other blogger sites or physical books that have enriched my career or work experience. I’ve decided Simon Long will be the first Saturday topic.
I met Simon for the first time last summer after having joined VMware in June. We shared an office for the first year and I’ve come to appreciate his knowledge and attitude for sharing information and advice. Simon was one of the early double VCDX (he may have been the first) and is currently a panelist for many VCDX panels. He has been blogging far longer than I have and many of his posts focus on VCDX related topics. If you are a thinking about pursuing the VCDX certification, his blog is one you should be reading — especially his recent posts on common VCDX mistakes.
In addition to his VCDX knowledge, Simon is heavily focused on EUC and Desktop-as-a-Service architectures. I encourage you to follow him on Twitter and reach out when you have questions.
