Let’s Get Technical at the Hands-on Labs at Cloud Foundry EU Summit

Cloud Foundry EU Summit is next week! We’ve got five technical labs running that should pique your interest, whether you are brand new to Cloud Foundry, a developer at any level, or an experienced platform operator.

Big thank-yous to both Google and Stark & Wayne are in order; Google has generously provided credits for Google Cloud Platform, and Stark & Wayne has built out the shared GCP infrastructure on which most of these labs will run. So thank you Google and Stark & Wayne!

Now, the labs (all times CEST):
