Cloud Foundry Europe Summit 2017

Share this post:

It’s time again for the Cloud Foundry Summit Europe, a hugely successful gathering of Cloud Foundry and PaaS focused companies eager to expand their application development knowledge on the Cloud Foundry platform. Cloud Foundry allows developers the freedom to abstract away infrastructure and focus on the task: mission-critical applications.

Join 1000+ developers at Cloud Foundry Summit EU on October 12-13 2017 in Basel, Switzerland to learn how to streamline your development operations in your language and framework of choice.

IBM is excited to announce that we are a Gold Sponsor of Cloud Foundry Summit Europe. We will have an expo floor booth where attendees will be able to observe and participate in live demonstrations of IBM Cloud and its features. This year’s conference continues the focus on be critical developers, offering relevant tracks like, cloud native microservices, Cloud Foundry in the enterprise, experiments and extensions, core project updates and more. There will be over 50 sessions and keynotes, multiple on-site training opportunities, a Certified Developer Exam, and lots of opportunities to meet those from the Cloud Foundry Community.

Diversity Luncheon

We’re also very honored to announce our sponsorship of the Cloud Foundry Diversity Luncheon! IBM is thrilled to have Swetha Repakula, Cloud Foundry Open Source Contributor from IBM Open Technology, on the panel for the Diversity Luncheon.
