San Francisco, CA — April 30, 2020— The Cloud Foundry Foundation, home to open source projects simplifying the developer experience, announced today it has launched a hub for Cloud Foundry-related tutorials to streamline the discovery and learning process for developers interested in learning more about the family of open source projects.

“Our community has created a learning hub, curated by the Cloud Foundry Foundation, of open source tutorials for folks to learn Cloud Foundry and related cloud native technologies,” said Chip Childers, executive director of Cloud Foundry Foundation. “The hub includes an interactive hands-on lab for first-time Cloud Foundry users to experience how easy the platform makes deploying applications to Kubernetes and is open for the community to contribute.”

The tutorials have been created and curated by the community and provide a free, simple way to learn about Cloud Foundry, including what it is, how to use it and why. As developers discover more about the technology, they are able to provide comments directly to the community about what they’ve found valuable and what is missing, generating a cycle of feedback that enables the Foundation to create new materials to fill gaps in topics. This feedback loop mimics the technical contribution to the open source project, perpetuating the collaborative and donative ethos of Cloud Foundry and other open source communities.  

“Resilient Scale is happy to lend our services by partnering with Cloud Foundry and the community in order to build this new resource,” said Steve Greenberg, founder of Resilient Scale. “The tutorial hub will make it easier for people unfamiliar with Cloud Foundry to give it a try and reach out to enterprise developers struggling with inefficient deployment environments.”
