Exam Prep - Cloud Foundry Certified Developer V2

Monday, September 9, 13:00 - 17:00

This class is designed to prepare existing CF users, or those who have taken the Cloud Foundry for Developers eLearning course, for the new Cloud Foundry Certified Developer v2 exam.  This prep course will include both instructor-led discussions and hands on examples. Topics covered align with the domains covered by the new version of the exam. Attendees that successfully complete the exercises and participate in the discussions are expected to be able to pass the exam the following day.

In addition to the Cloud Foundry topics, attendees will be briefed on the exam environment provided by the Linux Foundation. We will cover the basics of the testing interface, tools available to test takers and the resources allowed during the exam. We will cover the rules governing the exam and how exam proctors will enforce them.

Students must also register to take the certification exam in order to be seated for the test. Register for both this course and the exam and receive a €80 discount on the bundle.

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.

Hackathon

Tuesday, September 10, 9:00 - 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. The 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.
