    It was nice to be introduced to Cloud Foundry and get a chance to learn about the FeedHenry platform. It took a bit of time to get some of the samples working so there was not as much time to Hack on projects as I would have liked

    I appreciate the focus and quality of Cloud Foundry, FeedHenry and VMWare. It is the experience and focus complimenting my background, existing US Fortune 100 companies, educational institutions, federal government and Global 1000 clients.
