Open Container Day at OSCON is a gathering of industry practitioners presenting their takes around forward-thinking, container-based solutions, infrastructure, orchestration, cloud-native computing, continuous delivery, DevOps, microservices, and where this industry segment is going in 2017 and beyond that takes place on May 9, 2017 in Austin, Texas. Talks will be vendor neutral and straight to the point.

If you are heading to Open Container Days at OSCON next week in Austin, connect with us to learn how VMware’s Cloud Native Apps portfolio and open source technologies enable developers and IT from dev-test to production. VMware subject matter experts will be onsite to walk you through demos and use cases for securely developing, deploying and managing container-based applications.
