Bi-Weekly Round-Up

Bi-weekly Round-Up: Technical + Ecosystem Updates from Cloud Foundry | 9.8.20

Hey folks,

The Cloud Foundry EU Summit will be held virtually on October 21-22 in the Central European time zone! We’re looking at half-days (in the afternoon) dedicated to Cloud Foundry. The CFP closes in two days — on Thursday, September 10th — which is soon. Submit your talk and reach out with any questions on Cloud Foundry Slack in #cff-forum.

Very much looking forward to seeing you all, even if it must be virtually.  

Take the Cloud Foundry User Survey 

Take 15 minutes to take the 2020 user survey and make an impact on the project roadmap. We’re donating to COVID-19 relief and you’ll be entered to win a gift card. What’s not to love?
