New monthly community call
Are you interested in Cloud Foundry and Kubernetes? Do you have thoughts about how we should continue the evolution of Cloud Foundry and Kubernetes, and what we should prioritize as we bring the best developer experience to the everywhere-est container schedule? The Project Eirini (Cloud Foundry on Kubernetes) team would love to hear from you. Please join us to hear our progress and current plans on the first Monday of every month.
Join on Zoom this Monday, July 1 at 10:30 AM ET for our kick-off call!
Kubernetes is fast becoming the “dial tone” of distributed systems. It’s available on every cloud and has a huge ecosystem of providers, plugins and extensions. Cloud Foundry, on the other hand, is a community of people that care about developer experience. Of course, the Cloud Foundry community has its own container scheduler – Diego – which pre-dates the launch of Kubernetes. Diego is still a great choice for many people, but we’d love to let as many people take advantage of the Cloud Foundry Developer Experience as possible, and that means bringing it to Kubernetes.
And that’s what Project Eirini is about.
How far along is Project Eirini?
Pretty far! We’re passing the core Cloud Foundry acceptance tests and there are tech previews available on the IBM Cloud and as a packaged distributed from SUSE. The team has full-time engineers from Pivotal, IBM and SAP and part-time contribution from Google and others, and we expect more providers to provide the option of an Eirini-based Cloud Foundry for Kubernetes as time goes by.
And that’s where – we hope – you, the reader of this blog, come in!
We’d love to get the community’s input on our priorities and direction, and find out what’s most important to you as we iterate on Project Eirini. We’re always available on CF Slack and Github, but we thought a monthly Zoom meeting would give us valuable face to face input from the Cloud Foundry community. So we’re going to start holding them.
We’ll begin with an open call on the first Monday of each month (meaning the next one is July 1), and we can increase or decrease the frequency based on feedback from any of you that join! Here’s the link to join the call on Monday, July 1 at 7:30 AM PST/10:30 PM ET/4:30 PM CEST/: https://zoom.us/j/8743349130
