FROM THE EDITORS "VIRTUAL NEWS" DESK
Hi everyone, well with all of my best intentions it seems I have missed my window of a new newsletter every 2 weeks. I will of course do my best to keep up that schedule for you as there is so much news every week. I have not included everything that we have missed over the past several weeks since the last newsletter but I have added some really great content for you to consume, or send to your teams. You will also notice we have some of our prior news digest features back after a short hiatus due to a glitch in the "matrix". I hope that I can continue to provide these and we don't lose access to them again.
Please enjoy the newsletter this week and I hope to be able to ensure it is made available on a more regular cadence.

VMware IT Modern Application Platform Addresses Automation and Multitenancy
A major responsibility of VMware IT Operations is delivering cloud platforms, such as VMware Tanzu™ Application Service™, on demand. The challenge is maintaining the same standard for delivering multiple foundations over multiple instances whose infrastructure is spread across data centers. To ensure this, we came up with a standard infrastructure-as-a-code delivery, which means that we programmed all this in the pipeline with some adaptive inputs.
Why Path-to-Production Analysis Is a Must for Software Development Teams
One of the key metrics IT leaders care about is the total time it takes for a release to go from development to being live in production. The metric used to measure that duration is called the “release lead time.” It can range from days to months, depending on factors such as team agility, enterprise constraints, and interdependencies.
How to Build a Strong Open Source Community: Best Practices and Lessons Learned
When the VMware Tanzu Community Engagement team assembled three years ago, we did so with the belief that strong, sustainable community engagement is a crucial component of successful open source projects. With a mission of helping to build up and improve communities, we set out to support several VMware-originated open source projects.
