It has been around for a while now but I’d like to introduce you to CloudCred, by VMware. With CloudCred, you can earn rewards for the things that you know about the cloud, virtualization technologies, slick vendor technologies and more, and learn the things that you don’t.
With CloudCred, you earn points by doing tasks. Those points increase your status on a leaderboard of members and, if you earn enough points, enter you in a monthly grand prize drawing for some pretty cool loot.
CloudCred is more than a just fun way to flex your cloud knowledge and earn bragging rights for yourself and your team. It’s also a way to rack up on rewards and get certifications that can help you grow professionally. Stolen from the CloudCred website, here are some of the reasons to sign up:
Go beyond the type of tasks you’re used to completing on a daily basis. You could learn something.
Raise your CloudCred score to climb the leaderboard and get noticed by other industry professionals.
Expand your influence
Grow your sphere of influence through tasks that help you build and share your perspectives with peers.
