This post cross-posted from the EMC Proven Professional Community on the EMC Community Network.
I missed writing the round-up last week – did y’all miss me? So this week you get an extra-beefy round-up!
Here are some of the highlights from the past week in the Proven Professional Community:
- If you participated in the World Wide Proven Professional Day 2010 online event, we finally got your shirts in! We also shipped them out, so I’m hoping to see lots of #redshirt picture very soon!
For those of you who are new to the community, every year at EMC World, one day is designated as the Proven Professional day. We announce the winners of our Knowledge Sharing article competition, and every Proven Professional in attendance wears the same color Proven Professional polo shirt. This year we thought – hey we interact with lots of Proven Professionals who may not be able to make it to EMC World, how can we include everyone in the Proven Professional day celebrations? And World Wide Proven Professional Day was born! This being our first year, we learned some lessons about getting prizes out to everyone…so we’ll see what we do for World Wide Proven Day in 2011.
- Are you a SourceOne guru? There was a new SourceOne Microsoft SharePoint Administrator credential announced. Check it out here.
- We have someone new in the Proven Spotlight – Rajaneesh Sasidharan. Go read his story and say hi to him here.
- There were 3 new Knowledge Sharing articles released today as well. Topics include multi-homing for Networker, how to build a knowledge management system, and how to shrink CLARiiON luns. If you are a Proven Professional, or if you have a Powerlink account, find the articles in the August section of the Publication Schedule document.
- Did you complete the ECN Survey? What are you waiting for? Someone’s gonna win an iPAD!!!
