I want to stress something that not everyone seems to be aware of. Below is the “roadmap” to becoming a VCDX. Please take notice of the section on when the defense take place all the way at the bottom of the roadmap. “Interview for design defense are usually hosted at VMware events.” This means: VMworld(US / Europe), Partner Exchange etc. Keep in mind that this also means that it’s not possible to take it every month of the year. There are only a few opportunities per year to get certified, make sure you are ready!
