Sometimes opportunities knock in our door and if we are in the right moment in life to accept and take on such opportunities, we should do so with no regrets. I’ve previously moved from Brazil to Australia, and I have recently been presented with another exciting opportunity, this time in the U.S.
I have accepted an opportunity to join the EMC vSpecialist team, starting early May. The role is based in Santa Clara, CA where I am relocating with my family. I’m excited to have my debut at EMC World, which IMHO is very cool as I’m looking forward to the opportunity to meet my new work colleagues.
VMware has been a learning ground for me on a number of aspects. The people in this incredible company are some of the smartest and most innovative that I’ve met.
I’ve been fortunate to gain a 360 view of the IT industry while working as a Customer, as a Channel Partner and also as a Vendor. As it happens, I’ve been involved with End User Computing in all roles, which will continue to be a focus for me at EMC.
APAC Virtualisation Podcast – With me leaving the country, I could not find a better replacement than the 3 smart cookies; Alastair Cooke (@DemitasseNZ), Rodney Haywood (@Rodos) and Roman Tarnavski (@romant), that have already been running the podcast on their own. Thanks guys, for your continuous support and I will try to join the live show times at times, but rest assured I will be downloading every single podcast.
My Blogging – I expect to keep blogging with the same enthusiasm and focus on VDI related content, let’s see what shores this new boat will take me through.
My Book – It’s not a secret anymore that I have been writing a book about VDI with Jason Langone (@langonej). Jason has been into the book a lot more than me, but hopefully we will have it ready for VMworld’11.
