#vNSTechcon a great success. Video of my session and slides on #NSX #microsegmentation in practice #vexpert

I had the great privilege of being part of the team that organised the first dutch vNSTechcon.  (Networking and Security technical conference) Together with our sister event, the vMATechcon (Management and Automation), combined with great help from VMware and a kick-ass location, we had 2 really great days of excellent content and networking.

We had about 90-100 attendees, Feedback has been great so far. There is some sentiment that sessions could have been, overall, a little more technical. Something we can work on for sure!

My own session was about Microsegmentation in practice, with the NSX Distributed Firewall. This is an expanded and updated talk I have given at the last NLVMUG, and also at the InfoSecurity Summit.

This topic has kinda become my ‘thing’ as very few other people seem to be talking about it. As Boudewijn Aelbers pointed out:


My session, and all other sessions are on youtube. Playlist can be found here.

My slides can found as PDF here, and as PPT here.

Here is my own session. The session is in Dutch, but my slides are in English.


There are many people to thank for the success of this event.
