So long, and thanks for all the fish…

I’ve been working for Xtravirt for over 3 and a half years now, first as a Senior Consultant, and more recently as a Lead Consultant. During that time I’ve had the opportunity to work with some excellent people, some fantastic customers and some huge projects. I’ve developed and grown as a consultant and architect, achieved multiple VCP and VCAP qualifications, and VMware’s elite VCDX certification. For all of this, and for the opportunities and support they have provided, I am thankful to Xtravirt and to all of my colleagues who helped along the way.

However, I am the sort of person that needs to be challenged to keep me interested - I need to be out of my depth to keep growing - and for a while I’ve not felt that. It’s time for a change.

This coming Friday (21st) will be my last day working for Xtravirt - I’ve been offered a contract role that really suits me and I’ll see where that leads. I may end up contracting for a while, I may love it or I may hate it! It may be a stepping stone to The Next Big Thing* - who knows!

I will may be at VMworld Barcelona this year, and continue to support the London and UK VMUGs - I don’t anticipate much changing from a community point of view, if anything, I’m hoping to do a bit more blogging too!
