This was the question asked the most in the last couple of days. Whoever thinks that getting VCDX is the end of the road is delusional. I am sure most of the current VCDXs would agree that VCDX is the first step in a long way towards excellence. It doesn’t necessarily demean or reduce the value of VCDX, on the contrary, it makes you realise that there is so much more that you don’t know.
My next immediate aim would be to be a double VCDX and may be work towards getting a TOGAF certification (may be close to end of this year, beginning of next). I will try to get into a study group already formed by Josh Odgers (@josh_odgers), Grant Orchard (@grantorchard) and a few others in Melbourne (They are already well on their way with VCAP-CID successfully completed). One thing that pursuing VCDX has done is opened up a few doors (that’ve been sealed shut since 2003) inside my mind.
I still don’t know anything about NSX or NVP. I will be starting to download and read through the very impressive content as usual by Scott Lowe (@scott_lowe) here. Grant Orchard has a lot of information on his blog about vCAC and its design considerations here. I will also try to be more active and give something back to the community that has been so helpful and supportive.
