From the Desk of the Executive Director – September 2019

We’ve just wrapped up another resoundingly successful European Summit in The Hague. For those of you who were able to join us, I hope you had a fantastic time meeting others in the community and listening to some of the fascinating talks and demos from our users and members. It’s important to us that Cloud Foundry Summits are valuable to you and a great use of your time. We take your feedback very seriously and make changes every year directly in response to prior years’ input from attendees. Thanks in advance for your help with that!

Cloud Foundry Summit The Hague: By the Numbers

The Hague, The Netherlands was the perfect location for our European event. Summit boasted 172 speakers, 94 talks and 711 attendees from 33 countries. We’ve also increased the number of speakers who identify as women or gender non-binary since the North American Summit, from 18 percent to 25. 

The 2019 Cloud Foundry User Survey Is Available

We announced our newest findings from the 2019 Cloud Foundry User Report on stage at Summit. The platform’s maturity, flexibility, security and interoperability continue to make Cloud Foundry indispensable to over half the Fortune 500 and beyond. Read the full report to find out more. 

All the News That’s Fit to Print

At Summit, the Foundation released a press release with details about members’ news in addition to the news that Project Eirini is now supported by all Certified Providers of Cloud Foundry less than one year after its launch, with multiple technical previews in the market. 

The Foundation also revealed updates to key Cloud Foundry projects, including Stratos and Project Quarks. Project Stratos, the open source user interface for the Cloud Foundry community led by the team at SUSE, has officially graduated from an incubating project to a core Cloud Foundry project. 

Additionally, the Foundation recently announced the rollout of its updated Cloud Foundry Certified Developer exam. Version 2.0 of the exam is now generally available and can be completed online. Please share this opportunity with your development teams!
