{code}fest @ VMworld 2017

As hinted at a couple of weeks ago, what started out as a simple hackathon event at VMworld 2016 last year has grown into a four-day series of connected events: Welcome to VMworld {code}fest!

Learn. Code. Connect.

VMworld’s {code}fest is aimed at exposing and engaging those interested in developer and open source coding. Over the four days of {code}fest you can expect hands-on coding sessions, beginner to advanced level presentations, networking opportunities, and much more! With over 40 {code}fest and {code}fest-approved events there’s always something to be a part of!
