Back to a time when Tom sat by himself, in his basement, developing a computer program that would end up changing his life and ultimately be used by millions of people around the world. How did Salt and eventually Saltstack shape the person that Tom is today? Did it change the way he looks at himself? Is he satisfied with the work he’s done?

They also take a look at what the future holds for both SaltStack and VMware and discuss how they plan to grow and champion the Salt open source community that has been so vital to SaltStack’s success story!
