    Good but I wasn't expecting an intro to switch security, VPNs, or even the OSI model. This was my first meetup so the mismatched expectations were all on me. I learned some things, and I certainly don't want to sound unappreciative. It helped me realized that my MS Network Security matches well with what is happening in the wild.
