1. Secrets of Successful Cloud Foundry Adopters - Dormain Drewitz

What are the practices and hallmarks of organizations that are running Cloud Foundry at scale? How did they get started? How did they attract hundreds of developers and equip them to deploy thousands of applications?

2017 was a year when more enterprises hit critical mass with their Cloud Foundry deployments. The best part? They shared details of how they did it. Team structures, enablement tactics, target applications… there is a growing body of examples to learn from. But you have to absorb it all! Is there a Readers’ Digest version? Yes. Yes there is.

Wherever you are on your digital transformation journey, learn from your predecessors. In this talk, Dormain Drewitz distills the learnings from several companies using Cloud Foundry. She shares the patterns around strategies, processes, and tactics.
