Know before you go!

Thanksgiving… a time for friends, family, food… and AWS re:Invent!

In just one short week VMware {code} will be headed to Las Vegas, Nevada, to take part in Amazon’s annual conference, re:Invent! From Monday, November 26th to Thursday, November 29th, our 30×30 VMware {code} booth will host a number of activities.

First off, we’ll be bringing back our popular Maker Space sessions, where we will host hands on labs where you can learn how to utilize Project Liota (Little IoT Agent), an open source developer SDK for building IoT Edge System applications, and learn how to use Liota to collect data, and deliver it to AWS applications such as Wavefront. Participants will walk away with first-hand knowledge of how to build an IoT solution and visualize the data intake.

Of course, we’re also bringing VMware {code} Power Sessions to the booth. These 30 minute, technical talks will cover topics from VMC on AWS, Kubernetes, CloudHealth, and more. For the complete schedule of Power Sessions see below.  All sessions will be live streamed on our FB page, if you have not already, make sure to throw us a “like” so you can be notified when the sessions go live.

Furthermore, those who sign up for {code} and watch a session in our booth will be eligible to receive a free cup of coffee from our espresso bar as well as a Raspberry Pi sensor of their choosing.

 

 

Are you attending re:Invent? Stop by our VMware {code} booth, booth Q505, and check out the great sessions we have planned!

As always, the VMware Communities team will be there to lend a smile and any help that is needed! Make sure you stop by and say hi and take part in the many activities that we are putting on! We hope to see you there.

 

The full schedule of sessions are below:

Developer automation 101: Easily Transition Development Strategies from vSphere on-premises to VMware Cloud on AWS #VMwareCode13

VMware provides a rich set of APIs for both the private, on-premises cloud and VMware Cloud on AWS. During this session, you will learn which APIs are available, where they are located, which SDKs and CLIs you can use to access them, and how the tools and your existing skillsets are transferable to a hybrid cloud and VMware Cloud on AWS. With VMware Cloud on AWS, you have access to a new set of tools to ease development and automation by providing first-class access in the Developer Center feature. These tools make it easy to find resources and learn the APIs. Using the API explorer, you can easily see which REST APIs are available and how to use them. You can even try them out without having to worry about how to log in or write scripts.
