From the Desk of the Executive Director – May 2019

Happy May! Spring has officially arrived and trees are in full bloom around San Francisco. We’ve had a busy last couple of months – Cloud Foundry Summit took place in Philadelphia, the first week of April, and we released our most recent industry research report on adaptation versus adoption. Additionally, we announced Project Eirini is passing its core functional tests and that Accenture and HCL are the Foundation’s first two Certified Systems Integrators.

You can read the Q1 State of the Foundation report for a deep dive into our activities and accomplishments from January through March.

We are a community-centered Foundation. This means that we want our Summits to reflect your interests. If you have feedback on what you’d like to see at future events, please let me know.

We Need Your Help: Please promote/take the 2019 Cloud Foundry User Survey!

Our User Survey is live, and will close next Friday May 31st. If you are a user, please make sure you and your teams take the survey. Please promote the survey on your social channels, website, and in blog posts and emails. Getting feedback from users enables us to make the best decisions for the future of Cloud Foundry. There are prizes too!
