Developer Day at .NEXT has been deployed to production

Our inaugural Developer Day event happened May 7th, 2019 at the Anaheim Marriott as a prelude to the awesomeness that is .NEXT. This exclusive event would bring together some of our most technical customers and Nutantix folks for a jam-packed day of learning, discussions and hands on labs.

Breakfast was served and the day started off at a rapid pace with Tarak Parekh and Raghavan Kollivakkam highlighting the features and the future of the Nutanix Prism API. Please check out Raghavan’s follow up blog post re Empathetic API design! It’s a great read.

After a short break, Gene Kim, author of the Phoenix Project and several other DevOps books brought the house down with a presentation on what he has learned and researched in the industry. Gene has kindly published a link to the slides he used on the day – awesome!

Michael Haigh then followed up will a walk through of Karbon, Calm, Era, Buckets and more on how Nutanix products help you achieve Gene Kim’s 5 Principles. See Michael’s blog series on how Nutanix’s suite of products can help you move into the hybrid cloud.

A special thank to our panelists who shared both their successes and challenges with running Nutanix in the real world, it was great to hear from the actual people using our tools.

As a final step we had many folks join us for our hands on labs using their own computers. If you missed Developer Day we have good news for you! Over half the labs are available on this very site for you to do at your leisure. Check out the full list at the Nutanix Developer Portal labs page.

We cannot thank you, our loyal community, enough for attending and helping us make Developer Day successful!

As we gear up to get ready for our next event, we will be sharing with you about how we will be utilizing the feedback you all provided us.

Coming this fall, get ready for .DEV @.NEXT in Copenhagen. More details to come!
