HashiCorp hosted the very first HashiDays on May 15 in New York. HashiDays is a new series created as one-day, single-track, deeply technical, and community-focused events. HashiDays brings together customers, practitioners, as well as HashiCorp employees to explore and discuss different areas and topics ranging from customer stories and use cases, to technical product exploration.
HashiDays NYC kicked off with Mitchell Hashimoto delivering the opening keynote discussing what HashiCorp has been working on, what’s next, and the current landscape of our product suite. Several product-focused deep dives from customers and HashiCorp employees followed Mitchell’s keynote.
