From the Desk of the Executive Director – August 2019

Summer’s winding down and Cloud Foundry Summit Europe is less than four weeks away. Our team is working overtime to make it a huge success, and we can’t wait to see everyone at the World Forum in The Hague on September 11. If you haven’t registered, now is the time. And if you are a sponsor, please use your sponsor codes at registration.

Spotlight on Developers and Demos at Summit

We announced additional keynotes and activities at Summit, including keynotes from AirFrance-KLM, Liberty Mutual, VMware, SUSE and the UK Government Digital Service, as well as end user talks from Adfinis Sygroup, Cerner, Porsche AG, Rijkswaterstaat, Swisscom and ZipCar. Read the announcement and share with your communities.

Special Activities at Summit

Join me on Thursday at our Diversity Luncheon, sponsored by Cloud Native Computing Foundation (CNCF), which will feature a very special line-up of diverse speakers discussing a myriad of topics related to the ethics of technology.

We are continuing a new Summit tradition: Cloud Foundry’s second-ever Contributors Summit. This is a fantastic opportunity for open source contributors to help shape the future of the project and of our community development. Registration is required.

We also have a full line-up of specialized activities, including an Unconference, User DayHackathon, and the newly updated Certified Developer Exam

Cloud Foundry Transforms Every Kind of Company

Continuing with Cloud Foundry and Kubernetes

The team at SUSE has built a framework called “EiriniX” to provide a common way to build Extensions around Eirini, using the Kubernetes API. Read the post to learn how to build and test a simple Extension for Eirini with EiriniX. Share with your development teams if relevant!
