Participate In A Dojo
The Cloud Foundry Foundation’s Dojo Program is designed to take a great developer or product manager from new to committer in as little as 6 weeks.
This is a unique program amongst open source foundations and projects, designed to accelerate the process of becoming a committer on our projects. Please note that being a committer on many Cloud Foundry projects requires that you are able to work on the project full-time (or close to full-time) both during and after your Dojo period. Having the support of your employer is important.
Below are the general steps to make a code contribution. For each project, please review the repository’s README to see if there are any other specific instructions.
- Ensure that you have either completed our CLA Agreement for individuals or are a public member of an organization that has signed the corporate CLA.
- Fork the project’s repository
- Create a feature branch (e.g.
git checkout -b better_bosh) and make changes on your branch
- Push to your fork (e.g.
git push origin better_bosh) and submit a pull request
If you have a CLA on file, your contribution will be analyzed for engineering quality and product fit prior to merging.
Note: All contributions need to be sent using GitHub Pull Requests, and we favor pull requests with very small, single commits with a single purpose. Your pull request is much more likely to be accepted if it is small and focused with a clear message that conveys the intent of your change. Tests are required for any changes. Also, configuration options must be accompanied by support for manifest properties that can be overridden by a spiff stub.
Cloud Foundry is an open source PaaS, providing a choice of clouds, developer frameworks, and application services. This makes it faster and easier to build, test, deploy, and scale applications.
There are over 150+ Cloud Foundry meetups around the world. Find one near you!
The Cloud Foundry Dojo program allows developers to master Cloud Foundry by working shoulder to shoulder on the foundation projects with other Cloud Foundry engineers.
