Andy’s “Career” @ExpertsExchange

Wednesday, May 7th, 2014

One the day, that Experts Exchange enters a new era, with a re-brand and overhaul, and a change of logo! I thought it was fitting for a bit of self promotion and Giga-EGO Boost!

It’s also fitting, that in the last two days, I’ve now entered the Top 10 Overall Experts at Experts Exchange in the Hall of Frame,

I’ve been at the Number 11 spot, for many months, and finally jumped two positions to Number 9.

Experts Exchange Hall of Frame

Experts Exchange Hall of Frame

The Hall of Fame, is a little false, because in the top 10, there are only two really active Experts, myself and Ray Paseur, so that makes Ray No.1 and me No.2, so I’m happy with that!

Also, I didn’t blog about it at the time, but last year, I won the following awards

In November I was nominated an MVE in the Gamma Class

The Tenth Annual Expert Awards

Need to get back to writing articles and blogging, a little bit behind with the photographs…

ee-no-25When I first started answering VMware/Virtualisation Questions at Experts Exchange, approximately 2 years ago, I was a ranked outsider, this weekend, I’m now in the Top 25 Overall Experts, some of these experts are not very active at EE, so watch this space, hopefully within the Top 10, by the end of 2013!
