What to Expect at the Hands-on Labs at Cloud Foundry Summit

If you are attending Cloud Foundry Summit next week in Boston, I hope you consider dropping by one or more of the Hands on Labs. The goal of these sessions is to provide you with a hands-on experience in a half hour or less. As many of you have reached out with questions about the content offered during these sessions, I wanted to offer a quick overview of what you can expect.

Providing a new experience in 25-30 minutes is no easy feat. The team is working hard to ensure experiences are impactful and as realistic as possible in a limited amount of time. In order to achieve this, we need your help.

If you are attending a session, please arrive on time (if not early). There is very little time between the sessions and each is jam-packed. We also kindly ask that you depart quickly after the session ends to make room for the next group.

There will be 10 chromebooks and 20 chairs available on a first-come, first-served basis (thanks Google!). The chromebooks are preconfigured with everything needed to complete the labs. If you aren’t one of the first 10 people, you can pair up, simply observe or — potentially — use your own device. Some sessions can’t support BYOD (“Bring Your Own Device”), so please be sure to ask.

If you intend to bring your own device to one of the sessions below, please be sure to complete the following:

Pushing Your First App

  • Cloud Foundry CLI¬†installed.
  • ¬†Cloud Foundry Account: Please have an account on a Cloud Foundry platform (certified and non-certified platforms are listed in The Foundry). If you are unsure of where to sign up, please contact me via email (sgreenberg at rscale.io). I am happy to help out.

Microservices with Spring

  • Cloud Foundry CLI
  • Cloud Foundry Account: Please have an account on a Cloud Foundry platform (certified and non-certified platforms are listed in The Foundry). If you are unsure of where to sign up, please contact me via email (sgreenberg at rscale.io). I am happy to help out.

Open Service Broker with Kubernetes and CF

  • Be sure you can open an SSH session from your machine.

I hope this post has been useful to you if you are planning to attend a Hands-On Lab at Boston Summit! If you haven’t registered yet, please do so now — and I look forward to seeing you next week in Boston.
