HashiConf Digital gets underway shortly and will offer three days of technical sessions and workshops attracting an estimated 6000 attendees from around the world and is open to all. My faith in virtual conferences was restored last week with a well executed VeeamON conference, so i’m looking forward to attending a few sessions virtually to see what HashiCorp has to offer. While held over three days, the event is relatively small and focused, with only two tracks to chose from. Though, my feel is that it is offering a more community based experience for those joining, which I think reflects the user and customer base of HashiCorp well.
Top Session Picks
Terraform is obviously my main area of interest here, but as an inaugural HashiCorp Ambassador, I am always looking to expand my understand of the other HashiCorps products beyond Terraform… I’m especially interested in Nomad after having installed and played with it a while back. Also interesting in attending some of the sessions from the ex-VMware guys who have made the jump.
With that, these are the sessions i’m looking forward to the most:
On Demand Videos and Meet-ups
There are also a number of on demand videos ready loaded into the platform.
With a whole heap of Meet-ups planned as well.
Meet-ups are an opportunity for attendees to connect with one another on video over common topical interests. This could be product related, but also a more informal topic like gaming or discussing a bigger trend in the industry like multi-cloud or GitOps. Meet-ups are the heart of our community and open for anyone to host or attend. Request to create and host a meet-up here.
Overall this should be an interesting event for a company that has gained cult like following in the community with their strongly focused product set. I like the touch of the Virtual Swag page… that even has a Spotify Playlist The HashiConf Digital platform is now live and you can log in here. Though one interesting, but not unexpected twist is that you will need to authenticate your log in with your GitHub login details. If you do not have a GitHub account, you will be prompted to create one. There will be recordings immediately following a session and you will be able to access all sessions on HashiCorp’s YouTube channel and Resource page after the conference.
Enjoy the event!
