Congrats 2013 Dell TechCenter Rockstars!


TechCenter is a community for IT professionals that focuses on Data Center and End User Computing best practices. Here you can learn about and share knowledge about Dell products and solutions.

Congrats 2013 Dell TechCenter Rockstars!

The Dell TechCenter Rockstars program recognizes IT professionals for being experts on Dell solutions and services and rewards their contributions to online technical conversations on, in social media, or on the Rockstars' personal blogs.  

Our inaugural 2012 Dell TechCenter Rockstars program was a great success and it was a very rewarding and fun experience to interact with the many talented  IT pros in the program both online and in person at Dell events.  To continue that success and to further strengthen bonds between the Dell TechCenter team and its community members, we are expanding the 2013 DTC Rockstars program.

Today, we'd like to announce the 43 outstanding individuals picked for the 2013 Dell TechCenter Rockstars program.  Below you will find the names of our DTC Rockstars and links to their social media accounts so that you can learn more about them and their expertise.

May I have a drumroll please......
