Since I joined Santa Monica Networks Oy I have been extending my knowledge from VMware technologies to networking and network security solutions like firewalls. One networking security vendor I have come to love, is Palo Alto Networks. I run their NGFW as Virtual Appliance at home and I have been consulting their solutions at our customers. I have also lead some Workshops around Palo Alto Networks NGFW integration with VMware NSX, those events have been very popular.
One thing I felt was missing from Palo Alto Networks Community was a real time chat. IRC (Internet Relay Chat) is still somewhat popular in Finland, but I don’t see much of future for IRC, services like #Slack and Telegram have surpassed IRC. Since I already use #Slack I decided to roll up a #Slack Team for Palo Alto Networks Community, https://pan-community.net/
Mind you this #Slack team is completely unofficial, although there are already lots of PANW employees as members. If you are a PANW customer, partner, employee or just interested in their technology you are free to join discussion at #Slack.
You can sing-up for Palo Alto Networks Community #Slack at https://pan-community.net/
