VCNS to #NSX upgrade (spanish) Me and @J_Kolkes for #vBrownBag LATAM

End of support for VCNS was announced for September 2016. One of our vBrownBagLATAM members, Jorge Torres, was tasked with doing the upgrade to NSX and was getting conflicting information - the official docs said one thing and the actual AV product he was using was saying another thing, and he also needed to include a vSphere upgrade.

vBrownBag is a community of people helping each other learn. As such, we decided to do a session to review all of the documentation together and invited other experts to participate such as Elver Sena, author of the official VCP-NV book, and Stalin Pena, VCIX-NV. The result was the following session; I led by reviewing the main documentation available, Jorge did a specific session on his product and then we opened the conversation.

I'm happy to present this entry in this blog and introduce you to the world of vBrownBag if you didn't know about it!

Awesome community VCAP6-NV study guide by @clint_nz

I've been meaning to highlight the amazing work being done by Clinton Prentice, @clint_nz , at his blog As you all probably know, the first VCIX-NV certification is being slowly replaced with deployment and design vcap6 certifications, which when combined would then become the new VCIX-NV.

Clinton is going through the VCAP6-NV Deploy blueprint (1.2 from what I can tell) doing a blog (with practical demo!) for each of the blueprint items. It's phenomenal, difficult and time consuming work, and I just want to make sure he gets the shout outs he deserves :) Definitely will be a shoe-in the next time vExpertNSX applications open!

As far as I know, this is the only public study guide on this new certification so far - not to take away from previous VCIX-NV study guides such as Iwan's
