It's been a very transformative year for me. On April 29th, I started working as a Systems Engineer for PernixData. The same day my friend Frank Denneman also made his announcement! Since this time I have had the privilege working with a very talented team and made some great friends!
I also had the opportunity to contribute to the vSphere Design Pocketbook!
2013 was also a very busy year for PernixData and I was happy to play a part in it's development. I'm proud that my suggestion was chosen for naming the PernixData elite group of IT professionals as "PernixPro"!
A Look Ahead-2014:
I can tell you for sure that 2014 is going to be an exciting year for PernixData. Some big stuff is going to happen that I think will bring the industry to it's knees!! :)
I'm not going to make any predictions this year, like I did last year, but let's look how I did. PernixData had a big year coming out of stealth and Nimble just completed a big year with their IPO. The other two predictions gained more traction in the market, but I believe the clear winners are PernixData and Nimble.
In 2014 I have plans to achieve at least two more certifications along the way and become even more active within the community as well!
Happy New Year!!!
