In this episode

What could be more fascinating than a room full of Tanzu Super Users and Cloud Operators gathered together to discuss the newest Tanzu product, Tanzu Application Platform (TAP)? As many of you know, engineers are notorious tinkerers, whether it be programming on a Raspberry Pi, building a home gym, or building the latest master-level Lego set. Tune in to this episode of Tanzu Tuesday to hear the Vanguards - Tanzu customer super users - share their thoughts about Tanzu Application Platform (TAP) while building their current Lego set. Check in to find out what they have to say, how it will impact their current data centers, and see what they will be building! :)

Whitney Lee

Whitney Lee

Whitney traveled the scenic route but is absolutely chuffed to have found her way to Kubernetes and cloud technologies. She began her professional career as a fine artist before owning her own photography business for over a decade. Then, after a year-long tour playing keys and singing harmonies in the band Mutual Benefit, Whitney went back to school to learn full-stack web development. Shortly after graduation Whitney was employed by IBM as a cloud developer, using none of the skills she had just learned at school. However Whitney quickly developed an insatiable appetite for all things cloud, and a passion for teaching others as she acquired knowledge herself. She has made many light board videos for IBM Cloud, from topics ranging from creating a Pod in Kubernetes, to event-driven architecture, to cloud-native API solutions. At VMware Whitney’s contagious excitement drives her to continue to explore, collaborate, teach, and play!
