Tuesday Events

Contributor Summit

Tuesday, September 10, 9:00 - 14:00

Cloud Foundry contributors are the fabric of our project. You are constantly contributing your time towards technical and non-technical contributions and making improvements to make Cloud Foundry more powerful and flexible than ever.

The Contributors’ Summit is for new and current contributors to connect face-to-face and share feedback with each other. This is a fantastic opportunity for contributors to help shape the future of our community development. For new contributors, it offers a welcoming space to learn about the technology and build new relationships.

*This event is open only for current, past, and new Cloud Foundry contributors. Your registration may be declined if you do not fall into either one of these categories.


Tuesday, September 10, 10:00 - 16:00 & Wednesday, September 11, 14:55 - 15:25

Come join an enthusiastic bunch of Cloud Foundry developers in this second annual Europe Summit Hackathon! Bring your ideas and energy as we build interesting prototypes to extend Cloud Foundry functionality where it has never gone before.  Come with a team or come on your own and find a team during the event. Top three teams get awesome prizes and first place winners will be announced on stage during the Thursday morning keynotes.  This is a free event.

Topics: Any project that extends and enhances CF in an interesting way.  This could include: new CLI plugins, new buildpacks, additional multi-cloud capabilities via BOSH CPIs, innovative services or marketplace capabilities, reusing a Cloud Foundry component in a unique way, etc.  The overall goal here is to build on Cloud Foundry itself, not to build applications that run on Cloud Foundry.

Rules: Maximum of 4 individuals per team, and at least 80% of code should be written during the event.

Schedule: The hackathon will start with a full day moderated session on Tuesday.  Teams must submit their entries via email by 14:00 on Wednesday.
