From the Desk of the Executive Director – July 2017

I hope you’ve been enjoying your summer! We held a successful Cloud Foundry Summit in Silicon Valley this June with the most attendees ever and tons of folks from the developer and user communities.

Here’s a look at key activities in the second quarter of 2017.

Summit Wrap-Up

If you missed Summit, or just want to catch up on a session you couldn’t attend, check out our video playlist from the conference. In big news, we welcomed Microsoft to our ranks, announced Kubo has been donated to the Foundation, and made the Cloud Foundry Certified Developer training and certification generally available. Check out our Summit round-ups from Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday, a hackathon recap, and our new Cloud Foundry Summit experience video.

Next Stop: Basel!

Our European Summit is just around the corner and we look forward to hosting you in Switzerland. If you are interested in sponsoring this event, please review our prospectus and reach out to Marissa ( soon, as we are selling out very quickly. Certification will be offered on-site and early bird registration expires August 8th.

Member News

We are pleased to welcome four new members to the Foundation and announce a membership change this past quarter. Orange, Snyk and Minio came on board as Silver Members, while Microsoft joined as a Gold member and Volkswagen upgraded its membership to Gold.
