Cloud Foundry Community updates

CloudFoundry launched barely half a year ago to rave reviews. What isn't often mentioned is how large its ecosystem has become. Come in for an update on CloudFoundry, followed up by partner talks on the integrations they've done.

  • VMware give a Cloud Foundry engineering update (by Patrick Chanezon & Ramnivas Laddad)
  • AppFog - Contributing PHP Support to CloudFoundry
    • For over a year, AppFog has been a leader in PHP platform as a service withtheir product PHP Fog. In this session, we will learn about why AppFog haschosen CloudFoundry for our next generation platform as a service, how wetailored it to deliver rock solid support for PHP, and what we're giving backto the community.
    • Jeremy Voorhis is a Senior Engineer at AppFog. His mission is to create a user experience for PaaS that developers are passionate about. Afterhours, he is also an avid musician and open source hacker.
  • Scalr - Deploying and auto-scaling CloudFoundry
    • Managing clusters of Cloud Foundry, big and small, can be a lot of operations–and who needs more work on their plate? Automation and tooling can help. This talk is a demo of precisely that, with Scalr.
    • Sebastian Stadil is the founder of Scalr, and organizer of this group.
  • ActiveState - Securing Cloud Foundry Multi-Tenancy (by Ingy dot Net)
    • ActiveState’s Stackato has taken PaaS security a step further, and is the first PaaS to bring lxc-based containerization to the Cloud Foundry eco-system. Stackato delivers a more-trusted, enterprise-grade level of security to private PaaS deployments. 
    • Ingy dot Net, will cover how ActiveState has re-architected Cloud Foundry to enable secure containers and the benefits of this approach for Cloud Foundry based PaaS.

    The meetup was great. But seemed a little rush. The individual presenters could have held QA sessions after their talks instead of a panel discussion at the end which did not really add any value. But overall great experience.

    It was a good meeting. I will attend again! I would appreciate if it were more technical and less of sponsors coming and selling their stuff.

    I thought it was good. For newbies, a 5-10 minute presentation on what Cloud Foundry is and the basic idea would have been helpful at the beginning.

    I love the SVCCG. I attend when I can. Always learn something.

    But this was not one of the better events I've attended. Agenda didn't hang together. No overview/intro of cloudfoundry. No heads up at beginning about the nuanced difference between the opensource code, and VMware product. I didn't pick up on that till end of 2nd 30 min presentation. 3rd presenter was sharp - but spent very little time on his topic - which I was interested in.

    Great update on evolution of Cloud Foundry. I just posted a summary at

    I was more interested in features and a town hall style session rather than basic demonstrations that I could learn off the website. I left early because all the demonstrations were:
    1. Too basic
    2. Leaning heavily towards Java

    It would have been great to ask questions around:
    - NodeJS
    - Ruby
    - .Net
    - Support for Visual Studio
    - Mono

    Very informative. Impressive to see the amount of progress on the database and offline side by CF. Very impressive to see all the partner innovation taking place so rapidly. Would have been nicer on VMware campus.

    I thought it was more about marketing partners than cloud foundry.

    The goal is to stream live. Depends on network connection, etc. As a backup, it will be taped and uploaded later for your viewing pleasure.

    Avi Cavale, from Uhuru is going to be dropping by. Thanks SO much Sebastian for inviting us! We are excited to hear ideas to help CF users and to find people interested in our CF .NET extensions beta.

    @Leslie Sessions will be taped, but I'm so far behind on editing and publishing them that I feel bad about it.

    Due to space requirements of growing expected attendance, we are moving this to the Crowne Plaza Hotel down the street from the VMware campus. See you soon!

    Guys, I messed up with the scheduling for the event. New tentative date is January 10, and I forgot to update the meetup with the new information. Sorry about this! I'm still working on getting a venue for another meetup or two before Christmas.
