VCDX Community – Thank You!

I wanted to make a public shout out to all the folks that contributed to my success by providing great resources for learning VMware and pursuing the VCDX. Thank you all–I wish I could host you all for a VCDX keg party and thank you in person. And there’s so many more people and resources out there besides the ones I listed that make this community so valuable.
