“Co-locating with Open Source Summits provides the Cloud Foundry community with a deep-dive into technical content while building community, both within the Cloud Foundry ecosystem and across the broader cloud native universe,” said Abby Kearns, executive director, Cloud Foundry Foundation. “Our goal is to show enterprise developers the power of the ‘cf push’ experience to simplify their workflows and connect the dots to related technologies in the evolving cloud native world.”
