What is Cloud Foundry

Cloud Foundry is an open source, multi-cloud application platform, delivered as-a-Service (PaaS). Cloud Foundry is a project of the Linux Foundation, a 501(c)(6) organization.

Cloud Foundry offers a flexible way of embracing digital transformation to help businesses evolve in the face of constant change, saves time, and optimizes application delivery.

The Cloud Foundry Foundation houses complementary open source technologies focused on application developers and operators, as well as many projects to support and extend them.

Contribute to Docs!

As an open source project, Cloud Foundry relies heavily on the community to create, maintain, and update the documentation and help new and existing users.

Whether you are an experienced user or a beginner just getting started, you can always become a Cloud Foundry contributor by contributing to the Cloud Foundry documentation. Here are a few examples of when you could contribute to cf-docs:

  • You have noticed that a topic is incorrect or incomplete
  • You are developing a new Cloud Foundry feature and want to tell users how to use it
  • You don’t want someone else to go through what you just went through to figure something out
  • You are a good person, and you want to help your fellow Cloud Foundry community members

Become a Contributor

Contributing to Cloud Foundry can be as simple as submitting a pull request for a bug fix, feature update, documentation update, fixing a typo, etc. The Cloud Foundry community relies on its contributors to keep the technology and docs current.

For larger contributions, it is always best to communicate with the relevant project team(s) before beginning your work. Sharing your intentions early and updating the community often go a long way in avoiding any surprises.
