The event will be kicked off by Cloud Foundry User Stories, and is organized as an unconference, allowing attendees to discuss and share experiences openly with other Cloud Foundry users.

Tuesday, April 2, 9:00am - 3:00pm

Bring your ideas and energy as we build interesting prototypes to extend CF functionality where it has never gone before. Come with a posse or 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.

The Workshop

Have you ever wondered how to deploy and operate a platform that’s designed to deploy and operate applications? Join us and find out how with a hands-on training workshop. We’ll teach you how to deploy and manage the Cloud Foundry platform as well as the stateful data services that power cloud-native applications. We’ll provide an operational overview of Cloud Foundry and data services, and how these can be deployed with the cluster orchestration tool, “BOSH”.

This training is targeted at people with little to no Cloud Foundry BOSH experience but who have some experience managing Linux-based systems. If you’re curious to learn how BOSH can help you deploy and manage Cloud Foundry and other complex systems.
