Announcing Co-chairs for Cloud Foundry Summit North America 2019!

If you have attended a Cloud Foundry Summit, you’ll agree these events are indispensable to our community. They are invaluable thanks to our community’s efforts in submitting speaking proposals on germane topics and our co-chairs, who ensure the breakout talks at Summit match the expectations and interests of attendees. These combined efforts help bring the most diverse, relevant and fascinating conversations to the forefront and offer a forum for valuable in-person discussions among peers.  

We continued the practice of seeking nominations for Summit co-chairs from our community, then held elections for co-chairs at Cloud Foundry Summit North America 2019 to help shape the content presented at breakout sessions. (Read this post on what’s required from a co-chair.)
