I found the VCDX journey very useful for my real-world work as a consultant.

The processes and methodology tuned to achieve the VCDX certification are extremely valuable.

I also really benefited from the VCDX community by reading articles and mentoring from a VCDX.

The below growing list of articles is aimed at helping other people in the community with their design skills.

I have previously mentored several successful VCDX  candidates and enjoyed the process.    I am now, however, no longer able to mentor directly.

If you are looking for a mentor please refer  to the VCDX Directory
