From the Desk of the Executive Director – September 2017

I hope you’ve had a great summer. Incredibly, Cloud Foundry Summit Europe is only four weeks away now! We’ve got all hands on deck to make it the best possible event, and we are looking forward to seeing you in Basel.

See You in Switzerland

If you haven’t registered, now is the time! Thank you to all members who have stepped up to sponsor the event and shared registration with your communities — nearly all sponsorships have been sold and, as of Tuesday, there are 500 registrants for the event. We also have a few more spots available at our Day Zero Cloud Foundry User Day — for users only please! Finally, we’ve just announced our remaining keynotes.

2017 Container Report

Last week we issued our 2017 Container Report: Hope Versus Reality, One Year Later, a follow-up to our 2016 report which details trends in container adoption. Read my blog post for an overview of our findings, which point to continued enthusiasm for containers but a lack of heightened adoption.

Thank you for Participating!

Thank you to all members who participated in the Cloud Foundry User Survey. We had over 800 responses from a wide variety of users. We are currently collating the data and look forward to sharing our findings with you soon.
