Education and collaboration are vital to the future of the Cloud Foundry ecosystem, and it is imperative to us that everyone in the community that wants to participate feels welcome to do so regardless of gender, gender identity, sexual orientation, disability, race, ethnicity, age, religion or economic status. Our code of conduct outlines our expectations for all those who participate in our community, as well as the consequences for unacceptable behavior.
To encourage and increase the participation of a diverse community, we are pleased to offer diversity and need-based registration scholarships and discounts to our conferences.
Cloud Foundry Foundation’s scholarship program provides support to traditionally underrepresented and/or marginalized persons in the technology and/or open source communities (including, but not limited to persons identifying as LGBT, women, persons of color, and/or persons with disabilities) who may not otherwise have the opportunity to attend our events for financial reasons.
Help Us Inspire the Next Generation!
Donate to our Book Drive!
The idea is simple. Our goal is to collect 20,000 children’s books this year via attendee book donations at our conferences worldwide. These books will be donated to children in local areas of each conference. Help us reach our goal!
Literacy is at the heart of learning – and access to books at an early age directly correlates to academic success and development of important soft skills including self-confidence, independence, tolerance and understanding. The Linux Foundation has launched Tux’s Bookworms – an initiative to provide books to children in low-income areas and contribute to the development of future generations.
How to Participate: Bring one (or more!) of the following types of books with you to the event. A donation station will be set up in the Literary Cafe in The Foundry (Halls A & B) where you can personalize your books with a message and drop them off. Don’t have time to buy books before you leave? That’s okay! We’ll have information on a local bookstore available at registration so you can purchase a book locally.
Types of Books: Children’s books of all kinds, including books in Spanish and books for young readers (ages 0 – 8). We can’t accept textbooks, encyclopedias or adult books.
All books will be donated at the conclusion of the event.
