Last call: Cloud Foundry Summit CFP closes this Friday, May 21. In some previous cycles we have extended this date, but won’t be doing so this time – so get those proposals in.
From the Last Few Weeks:
- We’re holding an election for the new Cloud Foundry Technical Oversight Committee, a big step towards adopting this new, more democratic, technical governance model. Read all about it here and nominate your peers!
- Ram and Shedrack hosted a live-streamed panel with the Cloud Foundry Summit track co-chairs (and me). Did I mention CFP closes this Friday?
- The Cloud Foundry Summit Unconference has been scheduled – this is always a lot of fun and I highly encourage you all to attend this July 20 (the day before CF Summit).
- Join us at the monthly CAB call this Wednesday May 19, 8am PDT; we’ll be getting a presentation on Carousel, a cli tool for the rotation of credentials in Credhub, from Stark & Wayne.
- Update regarding Bionic Stemcells: Version 1.1 released for GA! And there was much rejoicing.
- Here’s an interesting conversation on buildpacks for Rust.
- Read Ram’s new tutorial: How to Build Cloud Native Deployment Pipelines, in Container Journal. And, check out this slick infographic: Haves vs. Needs on Dev Teams.
- Shedrack sits down with Brian Douglas of JAMstack radio and chats about JAMstack, Cloud Foundry, and more. And here’s his new blog post on Cloud Foundry & JavaScipt Package Managers.
