Left Brain Meets Right Brain – The Power of Code, Community and Culture - Dr. Angel Luis Diaz, Vice President of Cloud Architecture & Technology, IBM
Being a developer today means so much more than it did in the past.  It means tapping into the right brain and the left brain, artisan meets structured coding. It’s the wild wild west of programming these days with abundant opportunity to leverage open communities like Cloud Foundry to tap into our inner artisans and develop code at the speed of innovation.

At IBM, we are passionate about building solutions that are Open by Design which is why the new Cloud Foundry Foundation is so critically important to our path forward. Angel Diaz, IBM VP Cloud Architecture and Technology talks about the importance of today’s developer in the context of Cloud Foundry’s code, community and culture and how together we will create PaaS “fine art” rooted in deep technical eminence to address end user pain points.

The Oath of the Innovator - Christine McKinley, Mechanical Engineer, Musician, and Author
Society expects that engineers, programmers, and other technologically and scientifically gifted people are unbiased and unselfish. I'm going to make a pitch that although this trust can be uncomfortable (and sometimes misplaced, like when I'm asked to fix someone's toaster because I'm a mechanical engineer) we must do all we can to live up to the expectation that we are fact-based and uncorruptible.

A Developer’s Perspective on Cloud Foundry Operations: One Month in the Trenches
In this session Cornelia will share lessons learned from a month spent on a team that operates a production instance of Cloud Foundry. From her first morning addressing a prod incident, through building ops dashboards, documenting how a crashed micro-bosh is recovered, and prod deploys, she will share lessons on the value of declarative, immutable infrastructure, cloud-native application design and proper abstractions. Tried and true practices such as checklists and jumpboxes remain, while new ones such as primetime deploys and even live experimentation in prod emerge. The punchline? Even as an ops novice, she was immediately productive. In this session Cornelia will present specific techniques for using BOSH, system metrics and logging, dashboards, alerting systems and more to manage your CF deployment.

Deployments We Can Believe In
Government software development is undergoing a revolution from waterfall, slow processes to agile, customer-centric design and architecture. Deployment has been lagging behind, even though efficient, continuous deployment is key to effective agile process.
The standard government security approval model has proven to be slow and the preferred solution seems to be limiting the stack developers can work with. Instead of reviewing the whole stack (provisioning, configuration and application) for each project, we can take a layered approach and review the Cloud Foundry installation once and then authorize the application at the code level.
This talk will show how Cloud Foundry is helping to centralize security, speed up approvals, create a developer friendly environment and increase velocity.

Managing Multiple Clouds with a Single BOSH Deployment
Currently, one BOSH deployment can only work with a single cloud, but some companies need multiple, geographically distributed data centers and use different cloud providers. This means they have to install BOSH in each data center and use additional computing resources/team efforts to provide fault tolerance. At the moment, Altoros’s team is extending the functionality of BOSH director and building BOSH plug-ins that will automate deployments to multiple clouds. In this session, Alexander Lomov, Cloud Foundry Engineer at Altoros, will share his experience in this field. Attendees will learn:

- why one may want to use BOSH with many clouds
- how BOSH works with an IaaS
- how to make BOSH work with multiple clouds

You Build it, you Run it
Cloud Foundry in combination with the micro service architecture enables new development and operations models for teams. Cross-functional teams, decentralized governance and operational responsibility (You Build it, you Run it) are the foundation for a DevOps model where the developer also becomes operations.
In the 1st part of this talk we will show how we achieved operational responsibility within our [y]aaS teams by implementing the above mentioned concepts and by using Cloud Foundry and BOSH.
The 2nd part of this talk will focus on the specific monitoring and logging requirements resulting from above mentioned model. We will also show how we currently leverage open source technologies (Riemann, elasticsearch’s elk stack and graphite) in our current monitoring and logging architecture and how we are planning to move forward with Cloud Foundry’s NOAA, Doppler and event processing.

Running Cloud Foundry at Comcast
There are several choices that you need to make when deploying cloud foundry for a large enterprise. Not only must it be able to handle load and scale, but it must be built to suit the needs of several different application designs. We have achieved this at Comcast. From designing a scalable HAProxy layer that can grow seamlessly with our tenant capacity, to building service brokers that broaden its value, to working with application teams so they understand cloud-ready architectures. We have a successful implementation that spans several distinct application teams. And it has broad appeal from our internal customers. Join us in a presentation of some of our successes and lessons learned along the way.

Highlights:
·Implementing logging service brokers using Docker and OpenStack.
·Building a software load balancing solution that scales.
·Building up support organizations for operating PaaS

Cloud Foundry and IOT protocol support
OT is next disruptive innovation hotbed but Cloud Foundry doesn’t yet have support for the most important IOT protocols. GE software wants to change that.

The current CF router only supports HTTP. However, there are a number of IOT/Machine focused protocols that operate over other protocols (MQTT, COAP, DDS, etc.)that are focused on streaming data from machine to cloud.

This session will discuss the use cases that our Industrial Internet customers need these protocols for and how the extensible TCP-based routing framework GE Software is creating with the community will enable them.

Next steps in the Cloud Foundry API and why 3 > 2
The Cloud Foundry API is the interface for the platform's functionality, orchestrating a user's interactions with the system. In this presentation, core committers from the Runtime Team are going to explain the motivation, design, and architecture of the next iteration of the Cloud Foundry API. The team will discuss how the product goal to overhaul the concept of Apps in Cloud Foundry, paired with limitations from the existing V2 API, led to the design of a more flexible, consistent, and extensible API. Topics will include overcoming friction between new features within a well-established codebase, the goals and the driving ideas behind the V3 API and how they support new features and ease of future development, as well as a dive into the actual patterns and design of the API itself.

Leaving Your Comfort Zone - Garmin and Cloud Foundry
2014 was another year of transition for Garmin. Not only is the industry in flux with its devops and microservice methodologies, but so too is Garmin
itself transitioning from a hardware company to a software company. We will take you on our journey as we have lived it. Our mistakes laid bare, our achievements held high, we will show you how we designed, architected and delivered Cloud Foundry to our
production developers in under 2 weeks. Architectural Overview: A walkthrough of our attempt to do an active/active, multi-datacenter
integration with two discrete Cloud Foundry installations using Akamai and F5 to seamlessly load balance for redundancy and high availability. Next up? Multiple availability zones per datacenter for even more redundancy. Integration and Implementation: What do you do when your developers don’t want
to change their code to fit the Cloud Foundry standard url convention? Intercept and rewrite it, of course! We’ll also show you one method of using both Cloud Foundry applications and legacy applications in one big Prod farm using the F5 Load balancer. Monitoring Cloud Foundry Components: Alerting through Solarwinds and detailed metric analysis through VRealize Operations, we’ll walk you through our first attempt at understanding the internals of Cloud Foundry and how to make sure we have the tools necessary to troubleshoot when there is an issue as well as accurately scale and size
our Cloud Foundry foundations for the future.

Monitoring Cloud Foundry Applications:
We’ll also discuss the challenges found applying an established AppDynamics monitoring process to Cloud Foundry and how we worked with both AppDynamics and Pivotal to overcome those issues.

Logging (will complete later w/ Tylers help):
- Changes to how we feed logs into Splunk
- Legacy apps are all file-based

Service Bindings & Brokers:
We’ll talk about our the considerations and conclusions we came to around service bindings. When/where User Provided Services make sense vs writing
Custom Service Brokers

CI/CD Current & Future State:
Garmin has long been a CI shop. Our goal is to be fully CI/CD and we will talk about our roadmap to get there

Green Field vs. Legacy Migration:
We will discuss the factors we considered for an app to be eligible to run in the cloud

Launching the Next Generation Satellite Ground System on Cloud Foundry and Microservices
Like many technology companies, DigitalGlobe is driving to accelerate its pace of innovation. To that end it has been on a journey to implement Agile development and DevOps practices.

Recognizing that implementing microservices at scale brings with it a number of technical and cultural challenges, DigitalGlobe adopted Cloud Foundry to minimize the amount of "undifferentiated heavy lifting" that would have been involved in writing its own cloud-native development platform.

This presentation will summarize the architecture being implemented to support the next generation of satellite ground control applications and will cover some of the microservices implementation issues that were encountered.

It relate some of the "light bulb moments" encountered by developers and operations team members as they came face to face with the ways that CF takes "friction" out of the process.

The Swisscom-initiated project "bosh-workspace" was accepted into the incubator last year. It is now time for everyone to learn what it is, what big problem it solves, and why the consultancy Stark & Wayne now uses it across all its clients.

Each bosh workspace simultaneously makes BOSH deployments easier to automate from CI and easier to use by humans - you and I. No more 1000 line BOSH manifests. No more accidental misconfigurations.

Choose the features you want to enable/disable, add in your networking/cloud_properties, and your entire system will be running on a bare BOSH in just three commands.

Devops, microservices and platforms, oh my!
What does it all mean? This talk will reference Cloud Foundry in relation to all the industry trends. We'll talk about 'what', but also 'why'. We'll cover the history of Agile, devops, microservices, continuous delivery in the context of intentions and capabilities to arrive at what Cloud Foundry brings to the table and what you have to bring yourself. We cover everything from Moore's Law to Conway's Law. We'll compare and contrast the difference between ad hoc automation with the cost and benefit of a structured platform. We'll look at the risk analysis to show that as the fix cost of deployment goes to zero, that continuous delivery of small changes is both faster and safer. We'll frame this with an informal model of the spectrum of effectiveness for delivering software services covering development, operations and business considerations.

Service Discovery on Lattice with Consul
The demand for highly scalable and available applications with frequent roll-out updates has spurred adoption of microservices-based architectures. As a result, more apps than ever are being re-designed for the cloud. Lattice is an open source project for running containerized workloads on clusters, but it currently has no service discovery component.
This session will overview service discovery and configuration features provided by Consul, including automated clustering and HTTP health checks introduced in version 0.5. Attendees will learn how to:

- create a Lattice cluster on AWS for running containerized workloads
- deploy a microservices-based application packaged in a Docker container to the Lattice cluster
- set up a MariaDB service
- deploy Consul to AWS
- register MariaDB in Consul; configure and add this service to the application

CF Service Brokers Updates: Async provisions, service keys, and any params
CloudFoundry Services make up the most extensible part of any CF installation. The architecture is flexible and uses a broker model allows for various types of services to be integrated and used in any CF installations.

While very powerful and flexible, the current CF Services architecture had some major pending issues that prevented CF installations to be even more useful and capable. In particular, using the current architecture, it was difficult to integrate analytics types of services, as well as allowing service instances to be used outside of CF applications.

Recent enhancements to the CF services architecture attempt to address the current limitations by adding three key new features. First, services can now be provisioned and de-provisioned in an async fashion which allows service brokers to take whatever amount of time needed to create and delete their managed service instances.

Second, service brokers can now issue keys (credentials) to any client without having a need for a CF application. This allows a CF service to be used in a client that lives outside of the CF installation, e.g., a Docker container application. And finally, service brokers can now exchange any number of parameters for their service instances.

In this talk, the newly formed CF Services APIs team will review the Service Broker architecture that CF provides, discuss in details the new features, and show examples (and demos) of how the new features can be used to solve problems in current CF offerings.

How to Adapt Cloud Foundry to Organizations’ Contexts ?
Adopting a paas to meet new business objectives, often requires more than providing an out-of-the-box Cloud Foundry instance: integration in the organization’s existing ecosystem and support-for/transformation-of the organization processes might be key to CF adoption.

This session introduces a BOF on how can CF be adapted to match organizations-specific contexts.

In particular, this introduction presents an experience sharing from Orange Labs, proposing to use the impact mapping technique to gather and analyze organisation specific requirements. It outlines how Orange is adapting CF through the “ElPaaSo” product which is being opensourced.

The participants are then invited to join the BOF session on tues 10.40am to share their own org-specific reqs, how they’ve so far adapted CF to match them, and imagining ways CF could potentially be extended in the future to natively support additional customizations and extension mechanisms.

Developing the Freedom to Disrupt - Andy Zitney, Senior Vice President of Infrastructure Services within Allstate Technology & Operations Allstate Insurance Company
Companies large and small, and across all industries, are simultaneously recognizing the imperative and threat of change.  They acknowledge that this change must be absolute, and enable delivery of product to the street faster and allowing continuous enhancements to product for maximum market responsiveness.  Yet the transformation of a company with a storied 90-year history like Allstate occurs on a different path than younger 5-10 year old companies. 

What drives this transformation?  For starters, the change of IT from a mentality of "We are technology for the business" to "We are technology driving the business", which must carefully consider many factors, including culture and personnel, in addition to available technology.  Over the last 5 years, technologies have evolved in a way that make this transition more critical than ever: companies who are able to evolve at speed are winning, while those that are approaching change methodically are getting passed at every turn, not just by old competitors but by new entrants to the market.  Technology lowers the barriers of entry such that the ability to connect disparate services, systems, and companies to produce something viable is the only pre-requisite to filling, and dominating, a market need.  Find out more about the vision that Allstate Insurance aims to achieve, powered by Cloud Foundry.

BOSH Bootstrapping
CF and brokered service installations are deployed and managed with BOSH. Historically, BOSH itself has also been deployed with BOSH. That bootstrapping process was largely hard-coded, inflexible, and only allowed deploying to known supported infrastructures. It also required installing Ruby, legion native packages, the BOSH CLI, and an additional 'micro' plugin gem.

Enter BOSH Micro CLI: a new Go binary for bootstrapping a single-VM BOSH using the Cloud Provider Implementation (CPI) of your choice.

Now you can deploy BOSH directly onto any infrastructure that has a CPI, without having to maintain a fork of BOSH, opening the door for up to date BOSH and CF on infrastructures like Google Compute Engine and IBM SoftLayer.

We will demonstrate bootstrapping BOSH and discuss the various steps, components, inputs, and dependencies.

The Road to Persistence on Cloud Foundry Diego
Elastic Runtime makes deploying, scaling and routing traffic to 12 factor web applications easy, but the rubber hits the road when there’s data involved. Historically Cloud Foundry has leveraged BOSH for persistence, which requires the cloud operator to manage all stateful services. We’ve been investigating how we might expose persistence to CF users through the cf cli, leveraging Diego. This talk proposes a new 12 factor app model for data services.

After this talk the audience will understand the challenges involved in managing persistence, what other cluster scheduling systems such as Mesos and Kubernetes are considering, and what approaches we’re pursuing for Diego.

CF & The 12-factor App 101: The Secret Decoder Ring for Operations
Although the value of Cloud Foundry for developers is increasingly clear, much of the value for perations is wrapped around the 12-factor app as well. Contrary to popular belief both developers and operations stand to gain from these principles.

This session will be focused on technical operations folks who are not coders by trade. The session will walk through a real production application that follows the principles outlined by 12-factor while demonstrating how these choices improve the lives of not just coders, but operations people too. We'll discuss techniques like service binding, logs-as-event-streams, disposability, NoSQL, etc and how to start using them in your environments today to simplify operations in the context of production environments.

After attending this session, you'll be able to interact close with your developer community and speak the same language.

Norouter: Running Cloud Foundry without the Gorouter
The Gorouter serves a valid purpose in the Cloud Foundry architecture but having two layers of load balancing has introduced a variety of problems for our customers. In this presentation, we will introduce Norouter, an open source alternative to the Gorouter that integrates directly with existing load balancers eliminating the need to forward traffic through the Gorouter. We will discuss the pros and cons of this solution as well as demonstrate how we have integrated Norouter with our organization's F5 Local Traffic Managers allowing us to better meet the needs of our customers while maintaining feature parity with the Gorouter.

Deploying Microservice Architectures with Cloud Foundry
Now that you have Cloud Foundry, what are you going to do with it?

This presentation will show using Spring Cloud on Cloud Foundry to quickly leverage common microservice patterns, including distributed configuration management, service discovery, intelligent routing, load balancing, and fault tolerance.

Using Spring Cloud on Cloud Foundry, developers can take advantage of the cloud native microservice architectures pioneered by those building the web at places like Twitter, LinkedIn, and Netflix. In many cases they can do so running the same code with Spring Cloud wrapping the same battle-tested open source components those companies are running in production.

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.

Let Diego Manage Your Docker Application
Did your application fail to start because Docker Hub was unavailable? Someone changed an image you depend on and messed up your application? Every new instance of your Docker application takes ages to download? Cloud Foundry’s new orchestration manager makes it possible to run any application on Linux and Windows, guarantees that the system is eventually consistent with what the users desired and provides enhanced support for running Docker applications.

In this presentation we will show you how to take advantage of Docker’s packaging and deployment models, to reliably scale and run your applications without depending on Docker Hub. The project goals include enabling the use of private docker images, highly available backends and effective image management. We’ll also share our experience collaborating in a cross-continent team and the variety of tools we use for adding new features.

Simplifying Services with the Apache Brooklyn Catalog: The CF Brooklyn Service Broker and Plugin
The Cloud Foundry Service Broker API provides a means of adding new services to your Cloud Foundry application, but usually that means creating a new service broker for each additional service. In this talk, we introduce the Brooklyn service broker, which can deploy many different services across multiple clouds with a single service broker. It uses Apache Brooklyn, the open source application blueprinting and management platform.

We will demonstrate this with a range of clustered NoSQL and analytics platforms from the Apache Brooklyn catalog. We will also show how, by extending the API and using a CLI plugin, a single command can create and bind complex service topologies specified in your application’s manifest. Finally we’ll show the plugin’s capabilities for managing these services, inspecting sensor events and effecting scaling and failover changes.

Quantifying the Benefits of Cloud Foundry
“CF Push” is nice. The hybrid story is beautiful. CF-based continuous integration feels like a miracle. However, Cloud Foundry comes at a price. It requires infrastructure, software, and a ton of integration work. And don’t forget about the investment into the cultural change that your organization will have to make in order to reap the benefits of an agile platform.

This presentation will translate the advantages of PaaS into a set of metrics and express the benefits of CF in numbers. Not only can we measure time savings and infrastructure utilization, but we can also quantify improved success rates and the value of new applications that were impossible to build before. These numbers will help you to justify the cost of your CF investment in front of managers and stakeholders and overcome the pushback from engineers.

Using Service Brokers to Manage Data Lifecycle
IDC says that ~75% of the data we generate is copy data. Managing copies of data for test and dev is a continual challenge. Valid test data requires continual curation, sanitization, refresh and deletion. The operational expense of these copies is tremendous. Managing copies reduces agility and extends development cycles and is usually a manual operation!

This talk presents a retrospective on the progressive CF adoption within Orange Labs as a private Paas since 2012, and the activities involved in integrating CF in orange’s infrastructures and work processes.

In particular, this talk presents the opensource “ElPaaSo” product which is offering to orange additional-added value on top of CF to match specific requirements such as: formalizing application versionning and their micro-service architectures, fetching versionned app bits from corporate repositories, formalizing application supported configurations.

This talk then details future work, and challenges to trigger massive paas adoption within Orange.

We’ll conclude by imagining ways CF could potentially be extended in the future to natively support additional customizations and extension mechanisms to enable support for similar organisation-specific requirements.
