Chip Childers was on vacation this week, so Chris Ferris from IBM gave an update from the perspective of the Foundation’s Board. There was a Board meeting the week prior that was unfortunately compromised by a NYC stock market shutdown and grounded flights. Due to this they didn’t accomplish every they wanted, but they did talk about the upcoming conferences. There will be a CFP (call for participation) going out soon. Chris said the Foundation is currently getting ready for the OSCON conference for which Cloud Foundry is a silver sponsor. For Cloud Foundry, they are planning two mini CF Summits – one is Europe (potentially Berlin in October) and one in China (potentially in Shanghai in mid-November).
community advisory board
Cloud Foundry is taking a unique approach to community that combines inclusiveness and scale with high velocity development. In this post Christopher Ferris, IBM Distinguished Engineer, shares some thoughts on how to bring this approach to life and invites the community to co-invent the Cloud Foundry Community Advisory Board.

I’m really pleased with the steadily growing interest in Cloud Foundry over the past few months.
