Bi-weekly Round-Up: Technical + Ecosystem Updates from Cloud Foundry | 4.7.20

Hi all,

Hope you’re safe, sane, and comfortable out there.  

Some exciting new changes at the Cloud Foundry Foundation, just announced:  

  • Abby Kearns is moving on from the Foundation. Chip Childers has been appointed the new Executive Director. While we’re going to miss Abby tremendously, we are very grateful to have had such tremendous leadership here at the CFF for the past few years, and also that we are fortunate enough to be left in Chip’s capable hands going forward. 
  • Read Chip’s post here and Abby’s post here.
  • Join a community AMA Thursday, April 9th, from 8-10 AM PST on Cloud Foundry Slack in the #cff-forum channel to discuss this transition.

From the Last Few Weeks:

  • Chip Childers is now the Executive Director of Cloud Foundry Foundation.
  • Paul Fazzone has been named new chairman of the CFF Board.
