Time for 2013 recap – Starting a blog

As 2013 is coming to an end (and my holiday break is coming up) the time for looking back at 2013 and looking forward to 2014 is starting.

2013 is a productive year with starting my blog in august, getting some 35 37 blog posts out there (and maybe some more before the year ends), getting some notice on twitter, visiting VMworld Europe and successfully passing my VCAP5-DCD. Great goals with great finishes (if I may say so myself :-))!

But what will be 2014 like? I’m hoping to get my VCAP5-DCA and start on VCDX, and get VCAP-DTA. Hopefully I can keep up the blogging pace (not easy with work and family life, respect to all those that are doing this) and my content is somewhat interesting for the readers (and if not please do tell, also when you like it 😉 ).
And hopefully I will be able to be part of the VMworld magic again. Goals Goals goals. To be honest I have not yet been making that much targets, so maybe there will be some more on the list.

And yes, looking back is also a statistics thing, so to finish this post some of my blog 2013 statistics; let see what my top five best read posts are for 2013.

  1. Webcommander. Walkthrough of the Webcommander Lab Fling. Been at the top for a while now. Posted at: https://www.pascalswereld.nl/post/65524940391/webcommander

Who Am I? Well please to meet you ...I'm Pascal van de Bor and I work as an EUC Consultant/Architect for all kinds of customers. I have been working in IT for ages, doing some networking, Linuxes/Unixes, storage and a little scripting in PowerShellCLI / Perl / PHP along the way. Virtualization became my main area of expertise when I came in contact with VMware and later on a little Citrix and Hyper-V. I work, and worked, at different companies that need EUC expertise on a project/contract basis. I do this at my employer ITQ at the moment. Going from assessing and designing, consultancy, implementation and on the job training for the EUC team. Main focus is the VMware product suite, but I’m not afraid of a little outside of the box. It’s all about synergy isn’t it…. In 2014, 2015, 2016 and 2017 I am awarded vExpert. Great to be part of the community. Outside this blogging space, I love some gaming on the Xbox One, riding my motorcycle around (for the people that only see a flash, I currently ride a Yamaha FZ6-N S2) or playing one of my guitars (Gibson SG, Ibanez electric for shredding and Ibanez steel-string) and listening to (and visiting) music. A little preference for the loud music, but can also enjoy other genres. If you want to get in touch, ask here, follow my twitter feed. Please do connect! - See you around
