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.

Final words

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.
