Its always exiting to speak publicly and this year I am setting my bar higher by participating in 2 sessions.
First up is a panel discussion that I was very happy to be invited to by Francisco Perez van der Oord, one of the directors of ITQ. We will have a 45 min flow of topics around SDDC, NSX, Cloud, etc, and the general trends of technology as they impact vSphere admins. We titled the session “vSphere – .. and then what next?” Never participated in a panel discussion on stage before, so that will be an interesting experience. The other participants are, imo, giants in the dutch VMware community: Joep Piscaer of OGD/Jumbo and Viktor van den Berg of PQR, and I feel quite humbled being on stage with them.
My second session is my own talk, 20 minutes, on NSX Microsegmentation in practice. This is a condensed version of the talk I gave at the Infosecurity conference last year.
In it I cover some practical tips about using NSX Microsegmentation, do’s and dont’s, and common Gotcha’s
Its actually quite tough to get all the essentials into 20 mins or so, so it will be dense and fast-paced (as usual for me).
Nervous, but really looking forward to the day. I love the VMUG concept and I love networking and seeing all the community in the flesh again (as apposed to only on Slack/Twitter)
