vNSTechCon is a dutch VMware event that take place once per year in the Netherlands. The event is based on two tracks: vMA (Management & Automation) and vNS (Network & Security). The setup of the event was this year a little bit different. Because of the current virus outbreak (Covid-19) the event took place online.
The keynote was done by Jeremy van Doorn and after the keynote there were some great BreakOut sessions in both tracks.

As you may already noticed, my name was also mentioned on the agenda. Yes, that’s right! I did a presentation of the NSX-T bare metal agent for Windows 2016.
The presentation/demo (dutch)
In this session D’Angelo will show you how to secure a Windows 2016 bare metal server with the NSX-T bare metal agent. In addition, the requirements, preconditions and use cases are discussed to implement this.
This was my very first time presenting at an event like this and I enjoyed it very much. For everyone that is considering on presenting on events, just go for it! It’s a nice way to get comfortable with presenting and the best part is to share knowledge. I would also thank the vMA/vNSTechCon team for the awesome work they do.
