    Default 2 Hours, 2 Certs

    Over the past few months, I've been putting together a design and application for the VCDX. I've been wanting to defend before they retire version 4 of the certification. I was selected to defend last week at VMware Partner Exchange and am happy to report I was successful. Since I have already passed VCAP5-DCD, this effectively grants me two VCDX certifications for the price of one. I've written a blog post giving a bit more information and some tips for anyone who is looking at the certification. 2 Hours, 2 VCDX’s (VCDX Experience and Tips)

    Congratulations. I've always wondered why you don't have a VCDX.

    Congrats! Does this make you VCDX #2 in VA, or is there someone else besides Harley Stagner as this point?

    Either way, kudos!

    O yes he has, so let's say that Brent is TE's first actively-posting VCDX, shall we?!
