Cloud Foundry Announces 2017 European Summit in Basel, Switzerland

Registration, call for proposals and sponsorship opportunities now open for the premier European event for business leaders and developers using the open source multi-cloud platform

SAN FRANCISCO, April 12, 2017 Cloud Foundry Foundation, home of the industry-standard multi-cloud platform, today announced the date and location of its 2017 European Summit in Basel, Switzerland, from October 11-12 at the Congress Center Basel. Registration, a speakers call for papers and sponsorship opportunities are now open for the event.

More than 700 businesses, developers and vendors from across Europe gathered at last year’s Summit in Frankfurt to share best practices and hear senior executives from leading organizations like Allianz, Bosch, Fidelity, Siemens, Volkswagen, Rakuten and the Dutch Government describe how Cloud Foundry has helped them build and deploy robust, resilient and flexible cloud-native applications across multiple cloud platforms. Last year the event sold out – secure your spot at the lowest possible ticket price of €180 if you register by 18 April.

“Cloud Foundry Summits have become the place for companies -, both providers and users, to catch up on the latest advances in the cloud native world  and make valuable business connections,” said Abby Kearns, Executive Director, Cloud Foundry Foundation. “For enterprise developers especially, the Summits are a place to learn not just from their peers, but also to train and become certified on Cloud Foundry.”

Attendees will join other developers and CIOs to gain first-hand access to Cloud Foundry roadmaps, training and tutorials, and to see how others are using Cloud Foundry to support continuous innovation and application portability. Attendees will also have access to the new Cloud Foundry Developer Certification (CFDC) at Summit. Performance-based, community-based and independent of any distribution vendor, Cloud Foundry Developer Certification is the guaranteed way to demonstrate cloud skills and allow developers to be highly productive while working on top of Cloud Foundry.

Cloud Foundry is an open source technology backed by the largest technology companies in the world, including Cisco, Dell EMC, Hewlett Packard Enterprise, Google, IBM, VMware, SAP and SUSE, and is being used by leaders in manufacturing, telecommunications and financial services. Only Cloud Foundry delivers the velocity needed to continuously deliver apps at the speed of business. Cloud Foundry’s container-based architecture runs apps in any language on your choice of cloud — Amazon Web Services (AWS), Google Cloud Platform (GCP), Microsoft Azure, OpenStack, SoftLayer, VMware vSphere, and more. With a robust services ecosystem and simple integration with existing technologies, Cloud Foundry is the modern standard for mission critical apps for global organizations.

Keynote speakers and full conference schedules will be announced later this summer.
