2019 is in full swing – no more stewing over resolutions, it’s time to get to work! And it’s no different for VMware’s open source team. They are hard at work polishing their presentations, contributing to the community and, in some cases, packing their bags in preparation for the beginning of the 2019 open source conference season.

First up is the Southern California Linux ExpoSCaLE 17x (March 8 -10) in San Diego, which features speakers, sessions, workshops and the not-to-be-missed Game Night. If you’re going, stop by the VMware Community Collaboration space – we’ve got Open Source Jenga, Cubelets, Office Hours and Code Clinics (must be 16 or under to participate). Don’t miss our bevy of speakers, including:

  • Eric Brown, who will present on open source security linters
  • Nisha Kumar, who will advise on open source software compliance
  • Tim Pepper, who will discuss how to grow in your Kubernetes contributor role
  • Steven Rostedt, who will demonstrate how to debug your Linux kernel with ftrace
  • Steven Wong, who will discuss how to deploy a private container image registry using open source

Lastly, if you’re attending Thursday/Friday workshops, you can’t miss John Hawley’s session on e-ALE: “IoT-ALE: Discovering Tiny Snakes.”

Directly following SCaLE is the Open Source Leadership Summit (March 12-14), taking place this year in Half Moon Bay, CA. Open source leaders and influencers from far and wide will gather to share their insights, learn some new concepts and network with colleagues. With 12 presentations and panels to deliver over the course of three days, in addition to the ever-engaging hallway track, the VMware team will be very busy!

Meshing things up later this spring are Venil Noronha and Nikolay Nikolaev. Veniltakes the speaker’s mic at the gRPC conference in Sunnyvale, CA on March 21 to discuss Service Mesh and Istio. He’ll present on seamless cloud native apps with gRPC-Web and Istio and how introducing Service Mesh into the mix can affect a lot of change. Meanwhile, the Open Networking Summit in April finds Nikolay Nikolaev joining a panel exploring how the open source effort Network Service Mesh uses the extensibility of the Kubernetes API to deliver dynamic network services across Distributed DC deployments.

And of course, spring wraps up with the big kahuna—KubeCon EMEA! Stay tuned to the Open Source Blog and follow us on Twitter (@vmwopensource) for updates around KubeCon in the coming weeks!
