CodeCon Introduction & Keynote

Time: 9:00-9:30AM PDT

In the everchanging automation world, VMware has standardized the automation of Kubernetes by allowing you to automate like you always have. We're approaching Kubernetes from a vSphere automation perspective, viewing Kubernetes as the consumption layer for vSphere and embracing the merging of two. He'll discuss some new announcements around SmartNIC and remind the audience of the importance of vSphere and its adjacent opportunities. At this keynote session, we're pleased to have Kit Colbert introduce our two-day live VMware {code} Connect conference. Tune in for an exciting start to our conference!
