Welcome to my Launch Pad for VCDX
During the course of my VCDX journey, I’ve seen so much great material floating around the internet. Here is some of the information I found helpful as I went through the VCDX process.
Early on in the process, the best advice I found was to PRACTICE, PRACTICE, PRACTICE for your DEFENSE! I’m not sure if truer words were ever spoken.
If you’re interested in my tips for getting started with your VCDX certification, be sure to check out this article, I wrote after I submitted my VCDX application.
I’ll update this space whenever I stumble across something interesting.
The VCDX Journey
There’s a lot to learn during the VCDX journey, from technology skills to softer skills. When I write a blog that may be helpful to some aspect of VCDX, I always tag it. Click here for all my posts tagged VCDX.
