Cloud Foundry is more than an open source platform; it’s a growing community! In the past two years, our community has grown by leaps and bounds as a result of very passionate and dedicated people as well as crucial community tools like GitHub, IRC, Slack, and Twitter.

Moderated by Stormy Peters, VP of Evangelism for Cloud Foundry Foundation.

The panel will discuss lessons learned, what 2016 looks like for the Cloud Foundry community, and how they have managed to grow and nurture this vibrant community. Learn best practices and tips and tricks for starting meetups in your area and retaining your devoted Cloud Foundry followers.
