As mentioned previously, we’ll be offering four pre-hackathon training sessions at VMworld in Las Vegas.
In order to ensure attendees get the most out of these sessions, we wanted to share with you a number of prerequisites.
Getting these thing in place before you arrive Monday evening will help accelerate the trainings and give everyone a chance to spend more time on the content.
As always, please find us on Slack or on Twitter or let us know via the comments if you have any questions. Thanks!
