October 8, 2020

As is the case with many of you, we long for the “normal” and “familiar” when it comes to in-person conferences and events. To us, the last 7-8 months seems like 7-8 years.

Frontend Programming Overview – Phenomenal Speakers + Topics

As we’ve stated before, a large number of our attendees every year identify as “developers” or “programmers” (36+% did so in 2019), so developer content is extremely important to “get right”.

Curiouser and Curiouser…VMware Open Source

You may be familiar with VMware through its products: on the desktop it’s likely Fusion or Workstation; in the datacenter it’s vSphere. But that picture of VMware is a dated one – a 20-year old vintage photo, captured in time.
