Topic 1 - I grew up in VMware virtualization and the associated ecosystem. As you speak to VMware customers about the transition to Cloud Native Apps, how have the discussions been going? It's a very different audience that VMware's usual buyer.
Topic 2 - Give us the basics of how the VMware Integrated Containers (VIC) elements align with Docker elements (machine, swarm, etc.).
Topic 3 - The Docker tools tend to be a natural fit for developers and VMware has always made great tools for Ops. Are people understanding where and how they should integrate vs. keeping functions separate?
Topic 4 - What is VMware’s plan around schedulers like Kubernetes and Mesos?
