A glimpse at Runtime
A glimpse at Runtime (Dan Lavine, IBM; Zak Auerbach, Pivotal) - The Runtime team has helped Cloud Foundry become the success it is with rapid integration of new features paired with a continuous release cycle. Our expertise make us responsibility for reviewing contributions from the community at large and responding to any issues ranging from bug reports to codebase questions. This presentation will cover our development workflow and extensive continuous integration environments spanning AWS, vSphere and OpenStack. We will also give pointers and discuss our best practices for contributing to the development of Cloud Foundry. Finally, we will open up the process behind our interaction and exposure to the greater Cloud Foundry community.

From 0 to core contributor
Cloud Foundry is growing in a phenomenal pace, there are many adopting the PaaS, but often struggle with a common issue with any open source projects; gaining the community status and becoming a project committer.

In this talk, we will show how developers with little CF background, could leverage the Dojo program to learn the codebase inside and out, and adopting the agile process CF teams are using. We will also learn how some of the team members are doing remote pairing with the help of some toolings.

Finding and Organizing a Great Cloud Foundry User Group
Virtualization and global distribution are great when it comes to cloud computing and open source. In both cases, physical location is irrelevant. But one of the best ways to join the Cloud Foundry community is to participate in a local meetup. The presenters will share their experience running user groups over the past decade and lessons learned from recent Cloud Foundry events.

This session will teach you how to:
1. Find an active Cloud Foundry (or related cloud computing) user group
2. Contribute your own knowledge at an upcoming event
3. Organize - and sustain - a strong Cloud Foundry community

After this presentation, you will:
1. Appreciate the professional (and social) benefits of attending a meetup
2. Know how to share your expertise and establish your eminence as a Cloud Foundry expert
3. Be prepared to effectively organize a sustainable Cloud Foundry user group
