MuleSoft Champions are the life-blood of the MuleSoft community – experts who work tirelessly to give back to the community – whether it be through core contributions, creating connectors, writing blog posts, or through answering questions on our forums and StackOverflow.
For the work that our Champions do, we cannot recognize them enough. First we started with the creation of the MuleSoft Champions Program of which only 7 people have reached the highest honor, becoming a MuleSoft Champion.
Becoming a Champion in itself is difficult, and is worthy of as much recognition as possible. It requires someone who is dedicated to becoming proficient in the different MuleSoft technologies, while also having a passion for the community, and being selfless enough to give back time and time again without expecting anything in return.
One such Champion in Tomas Blohm, an Integration Architect with Pulsen. Tomas is not just a MuleSoft Champion, but was also the first to receive the highest level of certification in Mule ESB – becoming a Mule Certified Developer, as well as the first to be recognized as a Champion – being hand picked by MuleSoft founder Ross Mason!
To give you an idea of his experience and dedication, Tomas was first introduced to Mule ESB 1.2 back in 2005. Over the last 10 years he has been an active member of the community, answering hundreds of questions on the forums, as well as contributing to the Mule ESB core and the SFTP, LDAP, and JBPM connectors.
Today it is my privilege, while announcing the MuleSoft Champions Wall of Fame, to recognize Tomas for all of his work over the last 10 years, and to add one more MuleSoft first to his resume – being the first to make it on the wall.
His work provides an inspiration to us all. A role-model for those who have already joined the program and work to make the community better everyday.
Please join me in congratulating Tomas in the comments below. To learn more about the MuleSoft Champions program, and how you too can be featured on our Wall of Fame, visit https://developer.mulesoft.com/champions.
