The New Stack has been on the ground at many industry events to capture some of the most interesting news and latest happenings in application development and management at scale. Today, we’re excited to share that we are launching our first virtual Day of Podcasts with our sponsor, Dell Technologies. On Tuesday, June 9, from 6–11 a.m. PT, we invite you to tune in for five exciting discussions on DevOps as a catalyst in the age of scale with thought-leaders who are pioneering the DevOps journey.

Thanks to our sponsor, Dell Technologies, our show will anchor around the topic of DevOps, and we’ll look at how this adoption is enabling teams to securely scale their modern applications in context with Kubernetes and cloud native technologies. Come join us, and dive into how Dell Technologies, along with VMware Tanzu, can help organizations as they think through at-scale development and management for workloads everywhere.

Here’s the Plan:
