After 9+ years at VMware it's time for me to move on to a new challenge - I'm really excited about it and also about how well-positioned the #VCDX Program is right now. There will be 200 VCDXs this year and maybe 500 by the end of 2015 - awesome.
Working with the amazing people in the community, inside VMware and in the ecosystem, has been the most rewarding experience of my professional career to date. Every one of you has worked so hard and you have all achieved something truly exceptional. You deserve the success and recognition that's coming to you and it will come quickly now. Thank you sincerely for letting me be a part of it. I will be watching this thing we've built as it takes off like a rocket.
Enjoy the party at VMworld and John's farewell gig with Elastic Sky - and rock on!
