From the Desk of the Executive Director – February 2020

Hello and happy leap year! I can’t believe spring is just around the corner. We’ve been celebrating the Foundation’s fifth birthday over the course of the last month, and I wanted to share some of the great content we’ve put together as part of the festivities. 

Visit our birthday page to see a full timeline, read highlights from the last five years and watch the Foundation birthday video. I published an article with some of my thoughts on the last five years, and Chip authored a piece on his own journey with the Foundation. Swarna put together a retrospective on the evolution of the community. Spend a little time with the Foundation’s memories and drop me a line if you have anything you’d like to add to our growing database of quotes!

CFF-Forum: A New Slack Channel for the Community

We are excited to launch #cff-forum, a new public channel on Cloud Foundry Slack where our community can reach us directly. Feel free to use this as an open forum to ask us questions related to the Cloud Foundry ecosystem, including projects, events, and Foundation news. We hope #cff-forum serves as a direct line between the Foundation staff and our community.
