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.

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.

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.
