Innovation is at the heart of VMware, and programs like Borathon give us an opportunity to build from our creative roots and work collaboratively on Flings, features, proof-of-concepts, hacks, or new workflows. Moreover, Borathon gives us an opportunity to engage as a community to work together to foster creativity and to build enthusiasm for our products.
