Features keynote from most recent board member

SAN FRANCISCO, September 7, 2020 — The Cloud Foundry Foundation today announced the schedule for Cloud Foundry Day with anynines GmbH and VMware among the organizations taking center stage at the event.

“We are very excited to hold our first in-person Cloud Foundry event after a three year hiatus,” said Chris Clark, program manager at Cloud Foundry. “The event is meant to showcase the extensibility of Cloud Foundry. All the latest improvements to the core platform and various  Cloud Foundry projects will be highlighted at the event. We are striving to create a balance for those who are experienced with Cloud Foundry as well as those who are looking to adopt it afresh. Cloud Foundry events are a great opportunity to meet hands-on practitioners and facilitate collaboration and discussions.”

Cloud Foundry Day will be held on Tuesday, October 25, co-located with KubeCon + CloudNativeCon NA in Detroit. For this one-day event, the Cloud Foundry Foundation has joined forces with the program committee to curate a program that fosters collaboration among attendees and offers an interactive platform for education.

At the event, we have strived to put together an agenda that presents the best of Cloud Foundry,” said Ram Iyengar, chief evangelist at Cloud Foundry. “Due to the broad nature of Cloud Foundry projects, our program committee had a hard time choosing what to showcase. Attendees will get to learn about the latest open source innovations happening in the areas of core Cloud Foundry, as well as extensions to Kubernetes in the form of Paketo Buildpacks and Korifi. The agenda is also a good mix of introductory sessions, technical deep-dives, and community updates.”

  • A Keynote from Cloud Foundry governing board member, Catherine McGarvey
  • Introducing Korifi: The Evolution of CF on Kubernetes
  • Cloud Foundry Technical Governance: Past, Present, and Future
  • What’s new with Paketo Buildpacks?
