Today is a big day in the VMware community, it’s not because of a new release of vSphere or View, it’s because it’s John Troyer (aka Mr VMware Communities) birthday. John is a VMware employee and regularly when thanked for his work explains it is all part of his job, however it is the general feeling amongst the vExpert’s and VMware community that John always goes the extra mile for the community and without John being at the helm of the community it wouldn’t be what it is today.
For many their first interaction with the VMware community is the VMware Communities Roundtable podcast, where John hosts always staring with the words “Good morning, good evening, wherever you may be, across the nation across the world” taken from a late night US talk show, this was certainly one of my first interactions with the community, the VMware community is a warm and welcoming place and this is largly for John setting up the groundings and continued support and direction for the communitee.
John has always been the goto guy at VMware when someone was looking for that extra bit of information and will always do what he can to get it for them.
So everybody please join the vExperts in wishing John Troyer a very happy birthday and thanks for all he does, there is a twitter hashtag specially for today #vTHNX and John can be found on twitter as @JTroyer
