VMware has certainly seen some changes in its corporate structure during the past few years — but today, VMware’s business moves have been especially relevant for developers. Following its agreement to purchase Pivotal in August, for example, VMware continues to try to adapt its open source contributions and services for the ever-evolving needs of the community, with a greater emphasis on Kubernetes. This means VMware is increasingly engaged in offering and creating the tools and platforms developers need for Kubernetes, as well as for other open source projects.
In this edition of The New Stack Makers podcast: Kubernetes, open source, the developer experience and new technologies. VMware’s role during the upcoming KubeCon + CloudNativeCon conference was also discussed. The guests from VMware on hand to discuss these topics were:
Bryan Liles, senior staff engineer.
Tim Pepper, senior staff engineer.
Tasha Drew, product line manager.
All three guests are actively engaged in the open source community, and particularly, in improving the Kubernetes experience for DevOps engineers.
