Today is a very exciting day for VMware and later this morning, the new Cloud Native Apps team under Kit Colbert will be hosting an online event (replayed of the event will be posted here) to talk more about Next-Generation Apps on VMware as well as diving into more details on two specific initiatives that have recently been open sourced: Project Photon and Lightwave. In anticipation of the flood of information, I thought it would be useful to aggregate all the resources, links and articles in a single place for ease of consumption. This page will be updated through out the day, let me know if there is anything I am missing.

  1. It will be really awesome if you could describe in your words what project lightwave is! I love this website for learning anything related to VMware! 🙂
