~ The GREAT Echo Giveaway ~




Did you know that an Amazon Echo can control a VM?


At this year’s Hackathon, participants will learn how to configure an Echo Dot to do this very thing!


Whether or not you can attend the Hackathon, the source & instructions can be found at -

{Code}  - the official VMware program for developers.


Or, learn how by completing tasks in the Hands-On Labs Dev-Ops badge at – which will take you step-by-step through this cool process.


To make sure EVERYONE has a chance to take home an Amazon Echo Dot,

we are giving away 75 Echo Dots in the Hands-On Labs Venue at EACH VMworld this year.


That’s seventy-five Amazon Echo Dots, or about 15 a day

for 5 days in the US and 4 days in Europe!


Winners will be selected by Expert-Led Workshop proctors, and at-random in the Self-Paced Labs room each afternoon.


Not attending VMworld?


Don't let that get you down - you still have 5 chances to WIN an Amazon Echo Dot

from the comfort of your own home.

5 winners will be selected at random after both VMworlds are over.
