It is official now, after two wonderful Years at VMware I left the job as Senior Consultant. Before I will tell you more what I will do I would like to share a few words with you about my decision.
Why I left VMware and why VMware is cool!
I am working with VMware products from around 2009 which gives me around 8 Years of experience. Working with VMware products always gave me joy and provided for me and my family.
When I joined VMware two Years ago my dream came true, I was extremely happy and proud. I had a pleasure to work with the best experts in Europe and delivering great solutions to customers. I enjoyed working with every single customer and I love them.
As I mentioned at the beginning of the chapter I worked with VMware products more than 8 Years. Despite that my tasks changed and I learned new products and technologies I suddenly started to feel a little bit bored and I wanted to learn something new.
Last Year on Udemy there was a nice promo for courses and I thought that I might try AWS course. After spending 30$ for three courses (two of them about AWS) I decided to watch few chapters and play a bit with Public Cloud. When I deployed first virtual machines in EC2 I sat and thought WOW. It is so easy, so fast to deploy new virtual machines. No more worrying about hypervisor, management, storage and so on. I felt exactly the same when I did my first vMotion. Pure simple IT joy 🙂
After that, I took few AWS courses and I finished with AWS Certified Solutions Architect – Associate certificate.
My new job
As I was extremely happy with my job, duties, work&life balance I always replied to a job offer – “Thanks, but I am happy with VMware”. However, this one offer came and I decided to try it. I had nothing to lose and I got it. As of first of November, I joined company Consort CT where I work as Senior Solutions Cloud Architect.
In my new company, I will help customers with the journey to the Public Cloud. I still love VMware and its products and this passion will still be expressed on my blog.
My experience and skills have been proven by leading vendor certifications like AWS, Alibaba Cloud, VMware, and Microsoft. I contribute to IT community and I received VMware vExpert 2014 - 2017 and VMware vExpert NSX 2017 Award.
My blog wojcieh.net - was voted #43 in Top vBlog 2017 contest!
Do what you love, and you’ll never work another day in your life.
