Panel Discussion: Buildpacks and Containers for Cloud Foundry

Buildpacks, or their equivalent, are at the core most modern PaaS solutions. They are the recipe that build the application stack and leave the application developer to only have to care about their code. Buildpacks are open-source and each define a tried-and-tested way to deploy a specific programming language runtime or framework, and configure or compile the application.

With the advent of portable containerization solutions like Docker we're seeing a shift in what PaaS users are expecting the developer's interface to the PaaS to be. They want to bring their pre-built applications and have the option to deploy those same pre-built applications anywhere.

Join us for a panel discussion covering the history of Cloud Foundry's support for buildpacks, it's internal use of container technologies, the future of container format support in the runtime, and a healthy debate about the merits of each approach.
