Description: To honor its deep commitment to the Cloud Foundry community, VMware is sponsoring Cloud Foundry Day 2022, a co-located event at KubeCon North America 2022.
The VMware Tanzu team is excited to celebrate Cloud Foundry 2022 with the Cloud Foundry community—and being together in person again! We are inspired by the community’s success and all the work we’ve accomplished together. We’re incredibly excited about what we’ve completed in Project Korifi, which bridges the developer experience gap between Cloud Foundry and Kubernetes.
Furthermore, we’re very pleased with the ongoing success within the community as the Cloud Foundry project continues to deliver enhancements and exciting features that improve developer and operator experiences on the platform.
Team Tanzu is incredibly proud to see that our engineering community will lead the following sessions at Cloud Foundry Day 2022:
- Introduction to Korifi: The Evolution of CF on Kubernetes – Dr. Dave Walter and Andrew Wittrock will give the community an introduction to Project Korifi and recap the evolution of the work from the “CF on K8s” project.
- Grappling with Kubernetes Eventual Consistency in Korifi – Tim Downey will give a talk on the work performed to update Korifi’s Cloud Foundry APIs to use Kubernetes custom resource definitions for state management instead of a traditional SQL database.
- App Runtime Interfaces Extravaganza! – Greg Cobb will share the work performed by the app runtime interfaces working group, which includes updates around the Cloud Foundry CLI, cloud controller API, and buildpacks.
- Improved Resilience in BOSH: Improved NATS Cert Rotations – Maya Rosecrance will hold a presentation on the continued efforts on BOSH within the Cloud Foundry community. This session will highlight the work done to improve the BOSH NATS CA rotation process, which serves as a critical time-saving feature for all Cloud Foundry operators.
- Cloud Foundry Technical Governance: Past, Present, and Future – Eric Malm will give an insightful behind-the-scenes overview of technical governance of the Cloud Foundry project, as well as great instructions on how to get started within the community.
- What’s New with Paketo Buildpacks? – Sophie Wigmore and Ryan Moran will host a presentation on the current state of the Paketo project and provide a deep dive into feature support for software bill of materials and remote debugging.
- Remote Debugging of .Net Core Applications with Paketo Buildpacks and Visual Studio Code – Timothy Hitchener will talk about the evolution of the .Net Core Paketo buildpack and explain the benefits of remote debugging within Visual Studio Code.
- Stemcells Are Now Jam-packed with Jelly(fish) – Long Nguyen will give an overview on how the BOSH stemcell has been updated to the new Ubuntu operating system version 22.04, a.k.a. Jammy Jellyfish.
- How We Modernized and Reduced the Infrastructure Costs for Running CF – David Stevenson will give a great session on how to wrangle hyperscaler virtual machine (VM) types to ensure that BOSH and Cloud Foundry are using the most optimized VM instance types from a price-to-performance ratio.
- The Future of Logs and Metrics in Cloud Foundry – Carson Long will update the community on the past, present, and future state of logging and metrics with the project. The new shared-nothing architecture is sure to enhance the operational experience going forward.
