Cloud Foundry Foundation Statement on COVID-19

To our community and members,

We recognize the global emergency caused by COVID-19 is impacting all of us. Our thoughts are with our community, members, friends, and colleagues as we approach this new challenge together. 

As many parts of the world are implementing social distancing and, in many cases, urging or even requiring citizens to stay at home, many of us are privileged to be able to work from home. Some of our project teams have significant experience working and pairing remotely. For those of you that are new to working from home, please reach out to the larger community for support and/or best practices. If you have experience working remotely, we encourage you to share your best practices with others — both in the community and more broadly (in the form of blog posts, podcasts, tweets). Now is the time for our community to show its support in any way possible.

As we near our June 25th Cloud Foundry Summit North America, please know that we are actively monitoring the situation as it evolves and will be adjusting plans as necessary to ensure the safety and health of our community. As of today, we remain hopeful we will have the opportunity to come together in person. On Friday, we updated the event’s novel coronavirus update page. We will keep you updated on any future changes to the event plans, and remind everyone to continue to check for updates on that page. 

It is important to remember that each of us will experience the impact of this outbreak in different ways. Our community is a global network of individuals who genuinely care about each other. In this time of uncertainty, let us demonstrate that kindness to each other by remaining flexible and supportive – in the Cloud Foundry community and in your local community. Help where you can. Be patient, be safe, and remember to take care of yourself. We will all get through this together.

In the meantime, please don’t hesitate to reach out to us, at the Foundation, if there is anything we can do to better support you during this time. Find us on Cloud Foundry Slack in the #cff-forum channel or send any of us a direct message.
