Announcing the Mastering vSphere 5.5 Book Winners

November 1st, 2013 by jason Leave a reply »

Snagit CaptureUpon returning from VMworld 2013 San Francisco, I kicked off a contest with an award pool containing five copies of the upcoming Mastering vSphere 5.5 book.  Amazon is reflecting an in-stock date of November 3rd and I’ve seen at least one mention on Twitter from an author that he has received his hard copy.  My pre-orders should be arriving soon and I should announce the winners of the contest.

A few details:

  1. My name is written in green approximately in cell AD4 along with the inscription “VMware is my life and passion”
  2. The contest entries came in very quickly and there were five winners inside of two hours or less.
  3. By design, I kicked off the contest late at night to give folks across the pond and on the other side of the world a chance.  From what I can tell, most of the winners are not from this continent so I’ll be sending books overseas.  Please be patient for their arrival.

And now the moment everyone has been waiting for – the winners are:
Nick Carbone, appears to be from LA
David Wilde, I’m guessing UK
Seb, somewhere in the UK
Fernando Martinez, Mannheim, Germany
Conor Buckley, Cork, Ireland

Thank you to all who participated and my congratulations go out to the winners.  I’ll be contacting each of you via email for your shipping address.

    I’ve been looking forward to this book as I enjoyed the one for v5. I’ve just checked Amazon in the UK and the paperback is £19 but the Kindle edition is £41 – WOW!

    Boy, do I wish I’d won one.
