Ned Bellavance and Ethan Banks analyze the big announcements from two conferences the clouderati should care about: AnsibleFest and HashiConf Digital. Both of these were virtual events because there’s still an pandemic on, folks. Speaking of which, how do Ned and Ethan feel about virtual events? Not great, really. Slidewhipping the attendees in multi-day webinars seems to be how vendors are running their virtual conferences, and it ain’t workin’.
Okay, neither AnsibleFest or HashiConf Digital were that bad. They really weren’t, and in fact, there were several interesting announcements from these events. Plus, OF COURSE, there is the excellent archive of free content available to folks that registered for the events, even if you register late just to get access.
