2 Hours, 2 Certs

meadITmeadIT Member Posts: 581 ■■■■□□□□□□
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)
CERTS: VCDX #110 / VCAP-DCA #500 (v5 & 4) / VCAP-DCD #10(v5 & 4) / VCP 5 & 4 / EMCISA / MCSE 2003 / MCTS: Vista / CCNA / CCENT / Security+ / Network+ / Project+ / CIW Database Design Specialist, Professional, Associate

    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!

    Thanks! I believe I may be #3 in VA. Jason Langone is in Northern Virginia / DC I believe.

    Major kudos to you, sir!
    IT guy since 12/00

    Recent: 11/2019 - RHCSA (RHEL 7); 2/2019 - Updated VCP to 6.5 (just a few days before VMware discontinued the re-cert policy...)
    Working on: RHCE/Ansible
    Future: Probably continued Red Hat Immersion, Possibly VCAP Design, or maybe a completely different path. Depends on job demands...

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