Tanzu To Go

January 20, 2022
8:30am - 12:30pm
In-Person | Dallas, TX

Event Intro

VMware Tanzu To Go is an exciting in-person, hands-on workshop for application developers, where attendees will use open-source tooling to create their own custom development workstation with Kubernetes for cloud-native environments.

Join us on January 20th at the Aloft Dallas Downtown Hotel, where you’ll be able to use your personal computer or a hosted environment to craft an embedded platform for rapid iterative development with containers, without needing to be an expert in containerization.

We'll use Tanzu Community Edition, VMware’s open-source Kubernetes distribution, and tools like Knative, kpack, and Cartographer to implement rapid code-to-deployment pipelines. Create the ultimate, easy to deploy dev platform and take it with you... to go!

COVID-19 Vaccination: VMware requires that all attendees affirm that they have been fully vaccinated (as defined by the CDC/WHO) as a precursor to attending this event. Per CDC/WHO, people are considered fully vaccinated if they are ≥ 2 weeks following receipt of the second dose in a 2-dose vaccine series or ≥ 2 weeks following receipt of a single-dose vaccine.  By attending this event, you are attesting that you are fully vaccinated against COVID-19 as defined by the CDC/WHO.”

Tanzu To Go is intended for you to install and run on your personal laptop, and take with you! Attendees who choose not to use their own laptop will be provided with a cloud server to run the workshop content.

These are the prerequisites for the laptop you bring:

  • 16GB of memory (although 32GB will provide an optimal experience)
  • Mac/Windows/Linux operating system
  • A Docker runtime installed (such as Docker Desktop)
  • You’ll want a container registry for the workshop. A free DockerHub account will work for this purpose.

10:30am–10:45am Break
10:45am-12:00pm Application Development Tooling: Participants will configure tooling to implement container builds, application runtimes, and CI/CD capabilities to create a self-contained, Kubernetes-native development workstation.

Code of conduct

VMware is dedicated to providing and promoting a safe and inclusive environment for everyone, regardless of gender identity and expression, sexual orientation, disability, neurodiversity, physical appearance, body size, ethnicity, nationality, race, age, religion, or other protected categories. Because we don’t always know what might make someone else feel uncomfortable or unwelcome, these guidelines are meant to reinforce our values and clarify our expectations of all of those who participate in our community and events. They also define unacceptable behavior and provide instructions on what you can do if you see unacceptable behavior.

We each have different backgrounds and experiences. At VMware, we have three core values that we expect all to abide by: do the right thing, do what works, and be kind.

Expected behavior

  1. Be considerate, respectful, and collaborative.
  2. Refrain from using any demeaning, discriminatory, or harassing behavior and speech.

Unacceptable behavior

Unacceptable behavior may include, but is not limited to, the following:

  1. Harassment and discrimination, which includes: any verbal, physical, or visual conduct based on sex, sexual orientation, gender expression or identity, transgender status, race, age, national origin, disability, or other protected characteristics; inappropriate use of nudity and/or sexual images in public spaces (including presentation slides); deliberate intimidation, stalking, or following; harassing photography or recording; sustained disruption of sessions, talks, or other events; and inappropriate physical contact, or any unwelcome sexual attention.
  2. Using any boisterous, lewd, or offensive behavior or language; using sexually explicit or offensive language or conduct; using profanity, obscene gestures, or racial, religious, homophobic, transphobic, or ethnic slurs; commenting about a person’s body or sexual activity; and discussing sexual activity.
  3. Failing to obey any of the rules or regulations of the event or instructions of the event staff.
  4. Participating in any other illegal activity not already covered above.

Consequences of unacceptable behavior

We won’t tolerate unacceptable behavior. If a participant engages in unacceptable behavior, the event organizers may take any action they deem appropriate, up to and including expulsion from the event without warning or refund and, if appropriate, involving local law enforcement. Anyone asked to stop unacceptable behavior is expected to comply immediately.

How to report unacceptable behavior

If you have a complaint or concern about harassment, discrimination, bullying, or any other conduct that violates the VMware Events Code of Conduct, please contact [email protected].

We thank our attendees in advance for your help in keeping the event welcoming, respectful, and friendly to all participants.


Thank you!
