DevOps Enterprise Summit (DOES) is the premier conference for professionals implementing DevOps principles. The conference has grown over the years, moving from San Francisco to Las Vegas this year.

At the conference, you can hear from leading DevOps professionals from companies such as American Express, Capital One, Delta, Hearst, Jaguar Land Rover, J.P. Morgan, Nike, Standard Chartered Bank, Walmart, and Walt Disney.

Much like other enterprises, VMware has fully embraced DevOps culture in our own IT and application operations organizations.

Join VMware at DOES for three days of immersive learning, including several special presentations from VMware and Pivotal speakers. Here’s a quick overview of what’s happening at DevOps Enterprise Summit and how you can learn about cloud-native solutions from VMware.

Have Your Cake and Eat It: VMware IT Adoption of PKS

VMware IT has been on a journey with containers for more than two years and has deployed more than 4000 containers. VMware IT has gone through various container orchestration frameworks, from custom-built ones to open-source ones. With Kubernetes becoming the de facto container orchestration standard, VMware IT adopted it as the go-forward container platform. Join Eric Rong, Technical Architect at VMware, and discover how VMware IT super-charged container adoption by deploying PKS with VMware NSX-T on Tuesday, Oct. 23, from 1:55 PM – 2:25 PM.

Pivotal: DevOps Progression: Teaching Old DevOps New Tricks

Transformation is not a discrete event but a progressive accumulation of new behaviors. Andrew Shafer, Senior Director of Technology, Pivotal, will introduce the Culture, Automation, Lean, Metrics, Sharing model (CALMS) to define the concept of progression and outline the factors that may improve or impede adoption of DevOps principles. Join the discussion on Tuesday, Oct. 23, from 1:55 PM – 2:25 PM

Learn How to Take Ops and Infrastructure from Iterative to Functional

Cornelia Davis, Senior Director of Technology at Pivotal, helps development and operations teams adopt cloud-native technologies, new platforms, and processes to create business value. In this talk, she will share case studies from enterprises that made the shift to a software-driven business with IT at the core. Don’t miss Cornelia’s talk on Wednesday, Oct. 24, from 9:10 AM to 9:45 AM.

Cloud-Native Apps will be showcasing our Kubernetes solutions, PKS and VKE, at the VMware booth at both events. Stop by our demo stations and see VKE and PKS in action. The demos show how you can see Kubernetes components running in real time in the vSphere Web Client, analyze clusters in VKE by using Wavefront, and examine deployments in VKE and the Kubernetes Dashboard.
