Living the dream

Who would’ve thought that 2011 would become such a great year for me? Earlier this year a dream came true with the release of our PowerCLI book on March 28th. Now, only 2 months after, another dream is about to happen. I think I can honestly say that I’m living my dream right now.

Well, it’s official.
I will be joining VMware as a Senior Consultant starting June 6th.

After almost 13 years, I’m leaving my current employer KEMBIT. During that period KEMBIT has always felt like family to me, so deciding to leave them was not that easy. On the other hand, working for VMware was something I could only dream about and I simply couldn’t refuse the offer. :-)

I want to thank KEMBIT for the opportunity to let me grow my VMware knowledge and for their support and understanding. Thanks guys, it was a blast.

    If only I was able to have some impact in that process….
    I’m sorry but the kindle version is completely up to our publisher Sybex.
    The only thing I can do right now is ask our publisher for an update on this matter (again)

    “God save the Queen!”

    They didn’t put me “Under Pressure”, but it’s a “Crazy Little Thing Called Love”.
    Like “A Kind of Magic”, Voices were calling “Spread Your Wings”, “Play the Game”, this is your “Breakthru”,
    Join us, “We Are the Champions” and “We Will Rock You”.
    Then “The Miracle” suddenly happened and I started thinking “I Want to Break Free”, “I Want It All”, so “Don’t Stop Me Now”.

    Sorry for leaving the independants. Remember, whatever happens, “Friends Will Be Friends”
