Bi-Weekly Round-Up

Bi-weekly Round-Up: Technical + Ecosystem Updates from Cloud Foundry | 8.11.20

Hi all,

Don’t forget to sign up for tomorrow’s webinar KubeCF and CF-for-K8s: Your Path to Cloud Foundry on Kubernetes, hosted by us and featuring some awesome folks from SUSE. The webinar is from 9 AM -10 AM PT on Wednesday, August 12. I’ll see you there–with a massive cup of coffee.

We’re going to be running monthly Cloud Foundry hands-on labs going forward! This series will start off on Thursday, August 20 with Try Cloud Foundry, ideal for anyone who wants to get their feet wet deploying apps on Cloud Foundry. Varied curriculum to follow.

Cloud Foundry EU Summit dates have not yet been announced, but late October seems likely.

And, this just in: Generalissimo Francisco Franco is still dead.

From the Last Few Weeks:

  • Nice blog recap on the community’s approach to KubeCF and CF-for-K8s as told in the Kubernetes-serving kitchen panel at Cloud Foundry NA Summit.
  • Here’s a draft proposal for more inclusive language in App Runtime PMC projects.
  • Congrats Cloud Foundry Community Award Winners! Well deserved, Dr. Gao, Andy Paine and Sai Yerram.
