Cloud Foundry in Simple Terms: A Beginner's Journey - Gloria Dwomoh
"Cloud is someone else's computer". Have you heard that line before? This gives a basic explanation to what cloud computing is and maybe it could be a convincing enough answer to explain what cloud is to a 5 year old without additional questions. But can Cloud Foundry be as simple? In this talk, Gloria will start from the ground up like what does cloud mean up till what is Cloud Foundry, in simple terms, while exploring some of its intricacies. At the end, you'd have a better understanding of some of the key fundamental concepts surrounding cloud and Cloud Foundry.

What does Cloud Foundry look like from an attacker’s perspective? What can an outsider see? What if the attacker was a knowledgeable insider? Can either of these people break our system, steal data, or modify it to their advantage? Armed with this information, how can we mitigate our risks? In this talk, we will examine the Cloud Foundry attack surface.

Cloud Migration Without Fear - A Metrics Driven Approach - Gordana Neskovic, Hristo Dimitrov & Pontus Rydin, VMware & Kamala Dasika, Pivotal
One of the greatest hurdles to migrating and running applications to cloud platforms is the fear of losing control. Cloud Foundry helps address some of these issues “out of the box” with observability capabilities that generate insights and alerts on the overall health of the platform. But add infrastructure to the puzzle, and you exceed the amount of metrics most people can handle leading to disconnect and long troubleshooting cycles.

In this session, we present a metrics-driven approach to taking the uncertainty out and show:
  • How telemetry and analytics help us size the infrastructure
  • Provide deep insight into the application layers and services 
  • Share lessons learned from real-life projects

Improvements to the .NET Developer Experience on Cloud Foundry - Matthew Horan & Sam Peinado, Pivotal
The old news: Cloud Foundry supports running applications in true Windows containers. This was a significant step for .NET developers, who can now use more platform features (compared to 2012 R2) and leverage improved isolation and resource management for their apps.

The Pivotal .NET / Windows Product Area has been working to ensure an improved .NET experience with Cloud Foundry. While Windows support for Cloud Foundry still best supports 12-factor apps, new developments from the .NET Developer Experience team have helped improve the situation for many other apps that may not have been a great fit for the platform in the past.

In this talk, we’ll share some of the new features (and new opinions!) we’ve come to in the past year. This includes support for SMB volume connections, multi-buildpack support and a new “stack” for Windows.

License is a Nuisance! - Ramya Shenoy & Maryam Labib, Pivotal
Containers are available on the internet, or you can build them from scratch, or you could even build upon an existing one. You may have seen a container with a base OS image and then packages that get installed on it. These packages could be open source or closed source. When you get a container, you may not know exactly what’s on its file system. And when you’re a company, how do you know that you have the legal right to ship and distribute that container? That's why companies have to go through an Open Source Licensing process to license the software on their container images. In this talk, Ramya and Maryam explain why licensing is crucial and yet difficult when it comes to containers. You will learn about the whole process of figuring out what makes a container, finding the packages included on it and finding licenses for those software packages.

Panel Discussion: Welcoming V3: Modernizing the Cloud Foundry API - Piyali Banerjee, Abby Chau, Reid Mitchell, Zach Robinson & Luan Santos, Pivotal
Maintaining and consuming the legacy v2 API has caused frustration with the feature development process for CAPI (Cloud Controller API), CLI, and other CF teams, leading to the desire and need of a new and improved API: v3! The V3 Acceleration Team (VAT) was created to accelerate the deprecation of the v2 API. Clients, including cf CLI, are moving to primarily access v3 endpoints to empower end-users to use exciting v3-exclusive features. CF contributors, such as the Services API team, are developing v3-style features and app developers are using the GA-ed v3 endpoints. There has been a growing list of questions from the CF community on v3.

So what’s new in v3? How have the pain points from v2 been addressed? What is the transition experience like? In this session, panelists from CAPI, CLI, and VAT will address these topics, drawing from their experience designing and developing v3!

Baby Got Back Ups: How to Leverage your CF Blobstore Provider to Improve your Backup Experience - Sarah Connor & Emmanouil Kiagias, Pivotal Cloud Foundry
Regardless of how sturdy a platform is setup, disasters are inevitable and a platform will need to be restored. Usually, backups can be a headache to maintain, can take ages to complete and can start to eat away at storage costs. Often times the decision is made to reduce the frequency or even stop taking backups at all!

The BOSH Backup and Restore cli can be used to backup and restore a CF foundation and provides a solid experience if configured properly.

This talk will cover how the setup of your platform impacts the size, speed and lifecycle management of your BBR backups. Different storage providers such as GCS, AWS S3, S3 compatible and WebDAV affect how the BBR cli backs up your CF deployment blobstore leading to a significant difference in the backup experience. Having a better understanding of these differences allows you make an informed decision about your backup strategy.

Cloud Foundry UAA as an Identity Proxy Product Roadmap - Dan Beneke & Andrew Wittrock, Pivotal Software
UAA is the mission critical infrastructure within Cloud Foundry platform. In response to Cloud Foundry usage trends, we are repositioning UAA as an identity proxy versus an identity provider. To support that transition, we are making architectural changes to enable UAA as a service provider, connecting client applications with identity providers, as well as further strengthening our security posture by deprecating low use or outdated functionalities.

What’s even more exciting, we are investing to improve the supportability and operability of UAA, simplifying the platform operator and application developer experience with two major tooling makeovers.

Platform as a Product - Transforming from Service Delivery into Continuous Operations - Michael Coté, Pivotal
Most ops groups can’t give developers what they need. Ops is limited by traditional service delivery mindset and tools. Stability & reliability are now table-stakes when you’re releasing software daily. What developers need now from ops is innovation. Operations has rarely takes this innovation-driven, product approach to providing services, & instead focuses on delivering to specification & limiting SLAs. As with development, ops creates value with continuous operations, product managing their platforms and releasing frequently.

This talk covers how ops groups are transforming from a service delivery mindset a platform-as-a-product approach. With examples from Discover Financial Services, Rabobank, the US Air Force, & others the talk covers the concept, technologies & tools commonly used, & ops tactics needed to kick-off a platform-as-a-product strategy.

Microservices, Events, and Breaking the Data Monolith with Kafka - Ben Stopford, Confluent & Cornelia Davis, Pivotal
One of the trickiest problems with microservices is dealing with data as it becomes spread across many different bounded contexts. An event architecture and event-streaming platform like Kafka provide a respite to this problem. Event-first thinking has a plethora of other advantages too, pulling in concepts from event sourcing, stream processing, and domain-driven design. _x000D_

In this talk, you will learn the following:
  • Transform the data monolith to microservices
  • Manage bounded contexts for data fields that overlap

"Cube" your Enthusiasm: Bringing Cloud Foundry and Kubernetes Together with Project Eirini - Julz Skupnjak, IBM & Mario Nitchev, SAP
Is container scheduling commoditised yet?

The Eirini project is bringing pluggable container scheduling to the Cloud Foundry Application Runtime. In other words: the `cf push` developer experience we all love, with your choice of container orchestrator - including Kubernetes - under the covers.

This session introduces the Eirini project, talks through the reasons behind it, updates the audience on the latest progress (passing CATs! available in beta! ready to try out!) and tells you what it means for your developers (not much) and your operators (potentially, quite a lot!).

The speakers will also demo getting up and running with Eirini on Kubernetes using a single Helm chart. After this the audience will be able to try out the `cf push` developer experience, going from code to first-class Deployments, Pods and Services in your existing Kubernetes cluster, all in a single command!

Quarks - New Building Blocks for Deploying on Kubernetes - Mario Manno, SUSE & Enrique Encalada, IBM
There are two popular platforms for deploying your cloud-native applications - Kubernetes and Cloud Foundry. Kubernetes is the great for its flexibility, control over your application and is a great container orchestrator. Cloud Foundry is the go-to platform where you don't want to worry about your infrastructure, networking, scaling, and routing. It also has the best developer experience in the industry.

With Quarks, deployment is simplified using BOSH features, but keeping the flexibility of Kubernetes.

In this session, you will learn about this new framework and its building blocks for deploying cloud-native applications which has the best features of the two worlds.

We also want to give some insight into the work done and get feedback on the current state._

The Challenges of Taking Open Source Cloud Foundry to Production - Fabian Keller, mimacom Deutschland GmbH
When committing to Cloud Foundry some companies make the strategic decision to take full ownership of platform deployment and operations and deploy open source Cloud Foundry to fully understand all moving parts. While open-source Cloud Foundry has gotten rather easy to delpoy with the cf-deployment project, there is still a lot of more to do in order to make an open-source deployment production ready.

This talk will show the challenges we've gone through in taking open-source Cloud Foundry to production. We'll see what it takes to run and keep the platform up to date including various operational aspects such as monitoring, logging and backing up the platform. After the talk you'll have a better understanding of the effort it takes to run the open source distribution.

Automotive Cloud Development Paradigms - Diving into Connecting IoT, CloudFoundry, Kubernetes and Porsche - Matthias Hub, Porsche & Daniel Bryła, Grape Up
Latest trends make connecting vehicles with the cloud a necessity to attract customers. The difficulty comes not only from rising customer expectations but also from technological complexity. Handling connection losses, inactive cars, and a huge amount of data are standard fares in this business. To reduce complexity and boost development process, Porsche decided to explore an IoT platform approach. During this talk, Matthias and Daniel will show how Porsche and Grape Up are building an automotive IoT platform on top of Cloud Foundry and Kubernetes. They will focus on developer experience of this R&D project and will show how infrastructure abstraction helps in rapidly changing environment. Moreover, the speech will cover multiple architecture patterns (e.g. digital twin) which combined with the CF ecosystem helps to deal with a massive load, keeps the system clean and open for extensions

CF Volume Services - Building for Failure, Security and Performance - Paul Warren, Dell EMC
CloudFoundry has had a volume services capability for several years now allowing the platform to run workloads that require a persistent disk. We have also laid the groundwork for the same capabilities in Project Eirini and contributed to industry standards defining how to attach volumes into containers.

Based on NFS and SMB it has been both an interesting and challenging journey to provide a viable and reliable service offering into a modern, Cloud Native platform, using protocols that were designed decades ago and to a different set of assumptions.

Join Paul and Julian for a guided tour of Volume Services in CF and Project Eirini and on their journey from the very beginning finding a viable solution through to present day and building a service offering that is effective, efficient and resilient against failure.

Using Shared Volumes From Windows Applications in Cloud Foundry - Julian Hjortshoj, Dell EMC & Daniella Corricelli, Pivotal
Access to persistent volumes allows a much broader range of applications to run on Cloud Foundry. Windows applications, in particular, are often written to assume access to a file store, and often won’t work without one. But in past releases, Volume Services have only been available for Unix applications, and Windows workloads needed to be rewritten before they could be successfully cf pushed.

We worked to close this gap and build volume services for Windows, but the operating model was a poor fit, and left us with serious limitations. Then we found a better way forward - support for SMB volume connections from within Windows containers.

In this talk, we will cover options for mounting file shares into your Windows Cloud Foundry applications. We will then demo a couple of best-practices approaches using the Secure Credentials Broker, PowerShell scripts, and Steeltoe.

Implementing the Schedulers: A Look at the Internals of Diego and Eirini - Nima Kaviani, IBM & Jen Spinney, Pivotal
How does Cloud Foundry know where and how to run your app? It started with Droplet Execution Agents (DEAs) as the backend scheduler. Then, we re-architected Cloud Foundry to replace DEAs with the more-maintainable Diego. Today, with Eirini, we allow you to choose between Diego and Kubernetes as the scheduler. Cloud Foundry operators who are considering the switch from Diego to Eirini may find it valuable to know the key differences and how to troubleshoot the new Eirini/Kubernetes scheduler.

Nima and Jen have been contributors to both Diego and Eirini and have a deep understanding of the internal details of both. In this talk, they will do an in-depth comparison of the components of Diego and Eirini. They will discuss design differences across the two schedulers, and compare the pros and cons of each environment. They will also cover common debugging and troubleshooting tips for both.

This is Not a Technology Problem: Leveraging Culture and Process to Make the Most of Cloud Foundry - Colin Simmons, EngineerBetter
The road to running Cloud Foundry at scale is not without its challenges. Oftentimes it is easy to search for a software solution for everything but what if there is a better way? Through delivery of dojos, training, and continuing enablement Colin Simmons has found that sometimes changes to culture and process yield better results.

At EngineerBetter, Colin has the privilege of helping many companies operate their Cloud Foundry foundations in industries including financial, energy, and medical. The industries may differ but the challenges are often the same. Common ones include: overworked ops teams and seemingly unreliable systems. Sometimes a non-technical approach can move mountains.

Cutting-edge Continuous Delivery: Automated Canary Analysis on Cloud Foundry using Spinnaker - Andreas Evers, Pivotal
Using Cloud Foundry, we’ve learned best practices about how to deploy software at velocity — things like automated releases, immutable infrastructure, gradual rollouts, and fast rollbacks.

One of the most sophisticated techniques of going to production quickly, with confidence, is called automated canary analysis. While canary deployments themselves are becoming a commodity, having an autonomous judge at your disposal, makes all the difference. The judge analyses metrics of both baseline and canary deployments and automatically rolls forwards or backward.

Meet Spinnaker, an open-source multi-cloud continuous delivery platform which embodies these core principles of safe, frequent and reliable releases with contributions from Netflix, Google, Microsoft, Oracle, and Pivotal.

Project Office Hours: Loggregator - "Call for Comments on Proposal - Evolution of the Loggregator Architecture" - Amber Alston, Pivotal
The Loggregator group is proposing a series of architectural improvements designed to both simplify the Cloud Foundry metric/logging transport layer and reduce the resource costs required for running it. Proposed changes include moving towards a "shared-nothing" architecture, eventual removal of metrics from the log stream, and a standardization on syslog for all logging egress and the removal of a firehose-like-api in favor of a bring-your-own syslog aggregator.

Pushing Mongo: How You Can Use Eirini, CSI, and k8sbroker to Skate Like a Clown - Julian Hjortshoj, Dell EMC
“Pushing Mongo” is skater slang for kicking with the wrong foot. Urban Dictionary defines it as “a stupid way to skateboard.” The cloud native community agrees. Pushing your stateful services to Cloud Foundry is generally accepted to be an anti-pattern, and if you feel like doing it, you’re wrong.

But what if you still feel like doing it?

In the past, we haven’t been able to push databases to Cloud Foundry because the Diego scheduler favors high availability, and doesn’t provide the requisite guarantees needed to offer single-attach or block storage. But Cloud Foundry running with Eirini no longer uses Diego.

In this talk, we will demonstrate how Project Eirini allows us to provision and attach block storage to our containerized workloads and yes, to “cf push” MongoDB. What could possibly go wrong?

Humanising Onboarding: Helping New Team Members Find their Feet in the World of Cloud Foundry - Sapphire Mason-Brown, EngineerBetter
The world of Cloud Foundry can be difficult to navigate, with a sea of complex components each with their own quirks. For those new to Cloud Foundry, particularly platform teams that maintain Cloud Foundry foundations, this is can be intimidating. Additionally, the process of getting to grips with how Cloud Foundry works is not a speedy one. How can we make the learning process rewarding, not daunting, for new team members? And what do new team members need to be able to deliver value early?

In this talk, Sapphire will explore what psychology tells us about learning and how to leverage this to help new joiners grasp the complexities of Cloud Foundry and gain confidence as members of their team. Whether you’re new to Cloud Foundry or responsible for on-boarding new team members, this talk will leave you with actions you can take to make your on-boarding process as effective as it can be.

Achieving Scale to Zero and Back Again with Cloud Foundry - Ying Liu, IBM & Silvestre Zabala, SAP
“zero-scale” is an idea that an application can be reduced down to zero instances when idle and brought back to the required amount of instances when it is needed. It enables better resource efficiency by allowing idling workloads to automatically scale to zero and zero workloads to be automatically re-activated by coming requests.

This session will introduce an experimental project “scale2zero” which implements this feature for Cloud Foundry. We will introduce the user experience, how it works with other Cloud Foundry components like GoRouter, loggregator. We will also talk about future integration into app-autoscaler project and how it will affect and work with dynamic and scheduled scaling.

How A Major Auto Manufacturer Jumpstarted Its Transformation and Lowered Its Carbon Footprint - Thomas Kashofer, CGI B.V. Co. KG
What happens when a manufacturing customer tells you that they have a mobility issue due to a lack of parking space and clogged roads? You create a mobile app with a PCF backend.

Listen to the story of a German company that has successfully launched a public mobile app on a brand new PCF environment within 5 months.
With a team of 6 people we created a brand new one for Android and iOS smartphones. Incl. features like an integrated map, connecting to other users, sharing a ride and rating each other. We even included virtual coins and a small shop.

How?

We used all the frameworks and the power of the CF platform regarding the buildpacks for creating our containers, the marketplace for provisioning our databases and the app autoscaler for scaling the complete backend.

Within the first 4 weeks we had >5000 users and were providing >400 shared rides. The customer was happy and so were we.

Project 42 - Making CI/CD a First Class Citizen in Cloud Foundry - Christian Brinker, evoila & Benjamin Gandon, Gstack
Cloud Foundry's most significant achievement is the 'cf push'-experience which simplifies the developers life in so many ways. But at day two this experience gets lost because it gets well hidden in some CI/CD pipeline. Writing CI/CD pipelines can be hard and cumbersome.

Wouldn't it be nice to have the same experience of 'cf push' with CI/CD? But is that possible? But every CI/CD pipeline is different. 

With buildpacks we solved the same problem for application runtimes to get 'cf push'. So why do not do the same thing with CI/CD and fully integrate it in Cloud Foundry?

In their talk Benjamin Gandon and Christian Brinker present their work on project 42, their Cloud Foundry North America Summit's hackathon winning approach, until now.

Debugging the Routing Tier - Nitya Dhanushkodi & Angela Chin, Pivotal
As the entry point to Cloud Foundry, routing-tier related errors come from a variety of places. While some of these errors can indicate actual bugs in Cloud Foundry source code, there can be a number of root causes-- misbehaving applications, misconfigured load balancers, and infrastructure issues, just to name a few. To isolate and debug these problems, it becomes important to know which data to collect, how to collect it, and what in the data can indicate the root cause.

In this talk, Angela and Nitya will cover what information is useful to collect and what to look for in the data to eliminate possible causes of problems. Drawing on their experiences as members of the CF Networking team, they will go through issues that operators have seen in the past, and how they use tools such as routing logs, pprof, flamegraphs, and wireshark to debug, isolate, and work around these issues.

Panel Discussion: Cloud Foundry Test Kitchen - Bernd Krannich, SAP SE; Cornelia Davis, Pivotal; Simon Moser, IBM; Jeff Hobbs, SUSE and Moderated by Swarna Podila, Cloud Foundry Foundation
The integration of Cloud Foundry and Kubernetes was a major, recurring topic at each of the last few CF summits. Earlier panel discussions created quite some interest: “Cloud Foundry and Kubernetes - Will it blend?” (http://sched.co/DdZr, https://youtu.be/4ow7IumxkOM), "Cloud Foundry and Kubernetes - Did it blend?" (https://sched.co/FRyD, https://youtu.be/QkQe3354Y6Q) and "Cloud Foundry and Kubernetes - The blending continues" (https://sched.co/KJCZ, https://youtu.be/WWidgdvzjOI)

It turned out that new technology components for Cloud Foundry not only come from the Kubernetes ecosystem. In a sequel to the panel discussions, representatives of major companies in the CF ecosystem will reconvene to assess the status of the evolution of Cloud Foundry, the progress that has been made since the last summit, and provide updates to the visions the companies have for the future of Cloud Foundry.

What Not to do When Building Service Brokers - Felisia Martini & Derik Evangelista, Pivotal
The Open Service Broker API is the specification that adds service capabilities to platforms like Cloud Foundry and Kubernetes. Central to the spec are the Service Brokers: components that live between the platform and the actual service.

But building brokers is hard. The spec is extensive and there are many details one can easily miss when implementing a service broker.

In this talk, we will show how to avoid common mistakes we learned from building service brokers at Pivotal, highlighting points like security, scalability, resilience and reliability. For that, we will leverage open source libraries that help with broker development and maintenance.

No Field of Dreams: Getting Developers to Come to Your Cloud Platform - Dormain Drewitz, Pivotal Software
You’re (continuously) building a cloud platform for your developers. It’s going to make their lives easier—and keep your pager from going off all weekend. If only you could get all your developer teams to use it!

Many Platform Engineering teams using Cloud Foundry have discovered this interesting reality: they are spending more time “marketing” their platform than they expected. And that’s not a bad thing! But whether you’re new to Cloud Foundry or have been using it for a while, you may wonder if you’re doing the right things to gain adoption within your developer ranks.

In this session you’ll learn:
  • Why you need to account for ongoing marketing of your platform
  • What tactics you can use to drive adoption
  • How to measure the effectiveness of your “marketing” activities

Bosh Vault: Secretless Bosh Manifests and Vault - Matt Surabian, Zipcar
CloudFoundry's config server API has changed the way we're able to manage our infrastructure's secrets by limiting the amount of information our Bosh director needs to remember. Even though the config server API was designed as a generic abstraction, Credhub was the only secure implementation of it.

At Zipcar we were already invested in Vault and didn't want to have to manage two secret storage solutions, so we decided to write a config server implementation that was able to use Vault as a backend. This talk introduces the bosh-vault open source project, explores working with config servers and Bosh in general, and talks about the awesome community support that made this experiment possible.

How Did Our Garden Grow? Advances in the Cloud Foundry App Runtime's Container Engine - Yulia Nedyalkova, SAP & Giuseppe Capizzi, Pivotal
Garden (the Cloud Foundry App Runtime’s container engine, optimised for PaaS workloads) saw awesome features bloom over the last year. This talk will help operators understand and leverage new security features such as rootless, and will introduce developers to the new and long-requested CPU Entitlements feature. It will also give a sneak peek into Garden’s latest track of work - productising CF’s multi-tenancy security defaults for K8S users.

Garden is the first production runtime to support rootless mode; a wonderful security benefit. Leveraging containerd, Garden now uses more industry standards than ever, allowing for a much more familiar operator experience. New container CPU metrics enable operators and tooling to make better decisions about scaling. The next step will be to expose our cool features and defaults to K8S so we can all take advantage of them.
