Keynote: How Platform Operational Roles Enable Devops - Cornelia Davis, CTO of the Transformation Practice, Pivotal
One thing that everyone agrees on is that “Devops” is about reducing the friction between dev and ops. While it might not be immediately apparent, CF enables a separation of “operations” into two roles: platform ops and application ops. Platform ops is responsible for maintaining a secure platform with sufficient functionality and capacity so that application developers and application operators can perform their work. And application operators are responsible for keeping business applications up and running, so that consumers receive superior service, 24x7x365. By moving further up the stack, app operators can be far closer to the line of business owners, getting them speaking the same language. In this session we demonstrate how Cloud Foundry enables this, we talk about customers who are taking advantage of it, and we cover the tools available for each of the roles.

Building a Cloud Foundry Dojo: A Model for Open Source Communities - Brian Gallagher, President, Cloud Management Division, EMC Corporation
Cloud Foundry is an essential component of cloud computing architectures. Cloud
native applications need to be deployed to any cloud at any time which requires an 
effective open platform-as-a-service. Cloud Foundry is the first and only cloud 
native application platform in the industry and is built by an open source 
community. 

Over the past 12 months, the adoption of the platform continues to accelerate which 
has also increased the number of new requirements for the software. Earlier this 
year, the Cloud Foundry Foundation established a goal to increase the number of 
cloud foundry ‘dojos’ where open source developers could be trained to be effective 
contributors. A ‘dojo’ is a Japanese word that translates to ‘the place of the way’ 
where students are trained to learn the skills and techniques of martial arts.

Growing the open source community requires selecting the right people, with the 
right set of skills and cultivating an environment that fosters innovation, 
productivity, collaboration and fun. In this keynote, you will learn about the 
experiences that were gained in building the first cloud foundry dojo outside of 
Pivotal Labs in San Francisco. The session will highlight the selection process of 
candidates, their training experiences, the work environment and the projects that 
the developers have worked on.

Keynote: Changing the Enterprise - Colin Humphreys, CEO, CloudCredo
The common cliché is that enterprises want to act like startups. This talk will take a look at what 'acting like a startup' actually means in an enterprise context. Cloud Foundry can be an excellent tool to help with delivery, feedback, and iterative speed but, without a structure in place to put it to use, innovation will stall. We will discuss success stories - when organisations have been able to take advantage of Cloud Foundry - and also talk about some of the common antipatterns in enterprise cloud adoption.

What is BOSH? Why do I need it? - Dr. Nic Williams, Stark & Wayne
The only method for deploying Cloud Foundry that is curated and documented by the Cloud Foundry Foundation is to use BOSH. But what is BOSH? Why is BOSH a good thing? What problems does BOSH solve? BOSH a piece of technology that still has no open source competitors in 2015 - it communicates with infrastructure APIs to provision servers, disks and bind to networks; it promises to install the specific packages and configuration files that you expect without accidental upstream changes; and it watches the system and resurrects any cloud infrastructure that disappears. Today you might feel like BOSH is being forced on you to get Cloud Foundry running. By the end of this presentation you will have a new excitement for BOSH and will want BOSH to deploy and run all your complex distributed systems.

Continuous Delivery with Cloud Foundry - Christoph Szymanski & Alexander Link, SAP SE
Implementing continuous delivery (CD) strategies requires highly automated, integrated tools. For enterprise environments this is even more difficult, facing a lot of various technologies, in-house service providers and process requirements. Within SAP, our department offers a set of common services, but recently, an increasing number of teams request very specific build and test setups required for their products. With the ci-connect tool we address these requirements, enabling our developer community to build customized processes on top of GitHub. Local team services and compulsory corporate services can be combined, common services shared and reused. One of the services implemented is the automated deployment to SAP's internal cf landscape. In our talk we will describe our approach to integrate the deployment to cf in our services, and the challenges we faced during implementation.

Cloud Foundry 100-day Challenge: Deploy 100 OSS apps onto CF - Noburou Taniguchi, Nippon Telegraph & Telephone Corporation
The Japan Cloud Foundry Group, a user group in Japan, has been carrying a project named "Cloud Foundry 100-day Challenge" ("Cloud Foundry 100-nichi gyou" in Japanese, "gyou" originally means a kind of discipline or training in Buddhism). It is an activity to make 100 open source apps run on Cloud Foundry (CF, hereafter), one app per day. The main objectives of this project are as follows: 1) Let application developers know about the features of CF; 2) Find essential points to make a variety of apps run on CF; 3) Develop application developers' requirements to improve CF, 4) Collaborate OSS developers to make their apps "CF-ready". At the present moment (9 Sep), we've finished 57 apps. In this talk, I will share various (somewhat unarranged) experiences and knowledge got from the project.

Cloud Foundry Security Overview - Aliaksandr Prysmakou, Altoros
Many first-time Cloud Foundry users are concerned about how safe it is to run applications in containers. This talk aims to dispel the fears by presenting and analyzing facts on different aspects of Cloud Foundry security. Specifically:
  • Securing CF operations: separating access rights and deployments
  • App security: using isolation and package signing to ensure that every piece of code deployed to CF has passed all the required tests
  • SSL validation for custom domains: enabling custom domain names for different applications - Compliance with security standards: PCI DSS and HIPAA
  • Network packet filtering: how to manage/limit interactions between components and apps
  • Authentication in CF: integration with LDAP

Better Microservice Applications Using New Cloud Foundry Features - Zach Robinson, Pivotal
Cloud Foundry is already known as a platform that supports Microservice Architectures. In this talk I will cover how new, edge features such as Context Path Routing and Wildcard Routing make it even easier for developers to deploy and maintain Microservice applications on Cloud Foundry. These features are new enough that they are not widely known so many developers are using unnecessary hacks or custom routing layers to do thing like having multiple apps live under the same route. Because some of these features are not yet CLI supported, I will also cover how developers can access these powerful new features through interacting with the Cloud Foundry API.

The 7 Stages of BOSH - Daniel Jones and Chris Hedley, CloudCredo
BOSH is a powerful tool that handsomely rewards those brave enough to climb its steep learning curve. Chris Hedley (CloudCredo) and Daniel Jones (EngineerBetter) provide an entertaining tour of the journey required to successfully adopt BOSH in production environments. Looking through the lens of their experience using BOSH in small, agile teams and global enterprises, this presentation not only explains how and why you should be using BOSH, but also provides a guide to the lesser-known seven emotional stages of BOSH adoption: shock, anger, bargaining, guilt, depression, acceptance, and hope! Audiences will come away inspired to exploit the power of BOSH, and better-informed of the technical, organisational and personal challenges that come with integrating such a tool into their delivery pipelines.

Making the Improbable Possible - Dev Design Pairing with CF - Urvashi Reddy and Kimberly Eberz, Pivotal
Cloud Foundry has successfully enabled developers and ops to streamline the workflow of building and deploying applications. But why stop there? Using Cloud Foundry’s open source tools alongside Pivotal’s agile methodologies, Designer Kimberly Eberz and Engineer Urvashi Reddy will share how designers and developers can do the same. The speakers will tell a success story of pairing while creating an application from concept to completion.

Cloud Foundry empowers users by abstracting the complexities of infrastructure and allowing them to focus on the product and the code. Working in an environment where innovation takes priority makes pairing between designers and developers possible. This collaborative approach solves the problems that come with “throwing design over the fence.” What follows is a shared understanding of user needs, technical constraints, and requirements.

Building an External CPI for CloudStack - Guillaume Berche and Pierre Oblin, Orange
BOSH is the toolchain that enables seamless deployment and operations of cloudfoundry and brokered services on various Iaas platforms (e.g. AWS, Openstack, vSphere or vCloud) thanks to its Cloud Provider Interface (CPI) abstraction.

This talk describes the journey of a cleanroom java implementation of an external CPI for CloudStack. It starts with an introduction of bosh concepts, how bosh components (stemcells, bosh-agent, cpi, Iaas, director/init , registry) interact together. We’ll then cover design tradeoffs, challenges met, lessons learned, current status of this CloudStack CPI implementation. We’ll close with ideas for potential future bosh improvements.

Breaking World Records with Cloud Foundry - Omri Gazitt, HP & Klaus Baumecker, HP

For Cloud Foundry technology to succeed, we need customers deploying production-grade applications on the platform. But more than that, we need a healthy ecosystem of ISV partners to build software-as-a-service solutions on Cloud Foundry technology and deliver stable, market-segmented products to address their end users’ needs.

In this session, you will hear from a German HP software team, acting as an internal ISV, who is helping their worldwide customers by leveraging HP’s Cloud Foundry product to deliver a modern, real-time capable dashboard powered by Node.js, web-sockets and SVG. The Cape2Cape marketing initiative is just one of the examples where this Cloud Foundry-based dashboard is used. Cape2Cape is a world record holder project of completing a 19,000km route in a digitally-connected car. To power the marketing of this world record, over 350 GB of car data was collected in the course of the 9 days of travel and compiled in a customized, real-time dashboard that was shared and promoted worldwide.

Keynote: Building a Platform for Government Innovation - Diego Lapiduz
Government software development is undergoing a revolution from waterfall, slow processes to agile, customer-centric design and architecture. Deployment has been lagging behind and becoming a bigger hurdle for innovation. The standard government security approval model has proven to be slow and the preferred solution seems to be limiting the stack developers can work with. Instead of reviewing the whole stack (provisioning, configuration and application) for each project, we can take a layered approach and review the Cloud Foundry installation once and then authorize the application at the code level. This talk will show how Cloud Foundry is helping to centralize security, speed up approvals, create a developer friendly environment and increase velocity.

Keynote: From Weeks to Minutes...For Real! - Simon Johansson, Platform Engineer and Daniel Otte, Head of Platform Engineering, Springer Nature
30 minutes, Operating Cloud Foundry (in production) Going from weeks to minutes for app deployments. 0 to 700 r/s and 0 to 800 apps in a year. Springer dev teams are globally distributed and there was no standardization. From commit to production was often more than 2 weeks. Provisioning new VMs, configuring networking, firewalls, load balancing, writing Chef; was a tedious task that nobody wanted to deal with. Tribal knowledge resulted in flaky systems resulting in dev teams became dependent on different Ops teams. When Platform Engineering started to hear the faint whispers, “miiiiicro services”, we knew we needed to do something drastic. This talk is about how CF changed the culture, allowing devs to own their apps in production and care less about operational hassles. And how Platform Engineering simplified operations and reduce costs across the board.
