I’m a Veeam Vanguard 2017 I learned tonight
I came home tonight after a long day at work. The day was one of trying to solve some weird remote client issues, helping colleagues, supporting the devs, etc. There was also some fun whilst teaching some PowerShell skills to a colleague. It keeps them motivated and it also showed him future path were thing can and are going. Which reminds me of the good feeling being part of the Veeam Vanguard program gives me. Speaking of which …
What put a huge smile on my face tonight was an e-mail confirming I was invited to the Veeam Vanguard program again in 2017. Excellent news! And yes I did accept. What did you think!?
Being a Veeam Vanguard
So yes, I’m a Veeam Vanguard 2017. The Veeam Vanguard program is to me is about sharing, learning and growing through interaction with some of the finest techies any company out there could ever hire. It is full of hard core, highly skilled and experienced technologists from around the globe. They range from intensively hands on types deep in the trenches to real architects & strategists.
These are people that elevate me, teach me, educate me and, every now and then, make me feel very humble due to the depth and breadth of their knowledge. While I have my strengths, I sometimes feel out of my league among them. But that’s OK. Not being the smartest guy in the room and group means I’m learning and advancing. It makes it interesting and the diversity in skills and technologies make for a better stronger group that can deal with wide variety of challenges.
Everybody contributes to help each other, customers and clients which is good for us, for everyone using Veeam products and for Veeam. Veeam builds great software, has stellar support and delivers the value I look for in an ISV.
So to Veeam, thank you for the trust in me, my skills and professional abilities to make me a Vanguard in 2017. I’m happy and proud to be one.
Congratz! Happy to be one of the humble students of your teachings 🙂
