Cloud Foundry is the industry’s Open PaaS and provides a choice of clouds, frameworks and application services. As an open source project, there is a broad community both contributing and supporting Cloud Foundry. This Meetup is dedicated to fostering community engagement, contribution support for Cloud Foundry in Colorado. Follow this Meetup on Twitter: @cocloudfoundry (https://twitter.com/cocloudfoundry)

Topic #1: Secrets of Successful Cloud Foundry Adopters
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?
In the last couple years, many enterprises hit critical mass with their PCF 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.
