Cloud Foundry Hack Night (with Eats and Drinks)

You've read some posts, watched a few videos and maybe been to a meetup or two. Are you ready to get your hands on Cloud Foundry and maybe cut some code? Come join us for an evening of Cloud Foundry hacking. Designed for newbies and experienced Cloud Foundry practitioners alike, the format will be rather un-conference like. We will kick off the evening by proposing topics and forming teams of like-minded individuals to attack a problem. Some suggested topics are:

• Cloud Foundry getting started – push your first app(s) to Cloud Foundry - we’ll help you get an account on Pivotal Web Services or IBM Bluemix if you need it.

• Getting bosh-lite and cf-release running on your laptop or on AWS.

• How to build and deploy a service broker

• How to customize the java buildpack

• Building a BOSH release

• Create a pull request for Cloud Foundry - do you have one in mind?

We’ll have experts from the Cloud Foundry ecosystem, including Pivotal Web Services, Bluemix and other partner engineers, on site as well as many even more able-bodied members of the Cloud Foundry community.

The event is open to CF Summit registrants as well as Cloud Foundry Community Meetup members.

5:30-6:00pm Pizza and Networking 
6:00-6:30pm Topics and Group Formation
