The annual Cloud Foundry Summit Europe will be held virtually from Wednesday, October 21 through Thursday, October 22, 2020, with a focus on building community among new users and fostering collaboration for those who use and build the platform.
The Summit will be held over two afternoons on Central European Time with sessions tailored to the virtual format. The Cloud Foundry Foundation will join forces with the community-elected program committee to curate a program that fosters collaboration among attendees and offers interactive platform education.
Tracks will include the Contributor Track, with updates from projects and roadmap discussions; the Developer Track, featuring end user stories and demos; the New to Cloud Foundry Track, with introductions to the project’s architecture, how to get started and more; Lightning Talk Demos, enabling the community to share a demo and collect feedback from peers; and the Diversity Luncheon, which will feature an agenda devoted to equity and inclusivity.
“Cloud Foundry is hands down the best developer experience for Kubernetes and our second virtual Cloud Foundry Summit will cultivate collaboration across the globe, bringing together long-time contributors and developers with more recent community members in an interactive, educational atmosphere,” said Chip Childers, executive director, Cloud Foundry Foundation.
The event will include a virtual networking area to provide an online version of face-to-face networking and digital booths sponsored by vendors for attendees to explore.
The Diversity Luncheon, Hands-On Labs, Project Office Hours, Community Awards and a special New Summit Attendee AMA will take place over the course of Summit. Themed activity breaks and Game Night will offer recreational participation for the community. More details will be shared soon.
The call for papers opens today and closes Thursday, September 10.
The Diversity Scholarship application will be open until Friday, October 9.
