Keynote: Technology and the Threat of a Jobless Future - Martin Ford, Author of Rise of the Robots
Technology and the Threat of a Jobless Future

Martin Ford explores the ways in which “robots” and other technological advances are outpacing humans in all kinds of sectors, from education to law to agriculture to healthcare to management and beyond. He offers a realistic view of what the future of work—and your place in it—will look like. But beyond pragmatic concerns, Ford addresses a bigger question: can accelerating technology disrupt our entire economic system to the point where a fundamental restructuring is required? This next industrial revolution, Ford argues, will not be like the last one. In the past, even as jobs were eliminated, jobs were created to replace them. Increasingly, though, new machines will be able to take care of themselves. Fewer jobs will be necessary. The effects of this transition could be shattering. But there will be opportunities as well. We are at an inflection point: Do we continue to listen to those who argue that nothing fundamental has changed, and take a bad bet on a miserable future? Or do we begin to discuss what we must do to ensure all of us, and not just the few, benefit from the awesome power of artificial intelligence, machine learning, and other breakthroughs? The time to choose is now. This talk is both an exploration of this new technology and a call to arms to address its implications.

Keynote: Cloud Native Security: Rotate, Repair, Repave - Justin Smith, Director, Pivotal
Enterprise software security traditionally resists change as a matter of unquestioned policy. Vulnerability is a function that changes with time. The probability of being exploited increases with the accumulation of long lived credentials and unpatched code. The question that must be asked is: how can a security strategy which resists change keep up with the pace of the modern threat landscape? This asymmetry in speed and adaptiveness only creates advantages for the attacker. What if the only what to increase security is to move as fast as possible? Continuously rotating credentials, patching systems, and rebuilding clusters to minimize windows of vulnerability decreases the threat profile in time and severity. This presentation will outline principles and practices of Cloud Native Security and how Cloud Foundry can be part of your strategy to increase velocity and security.

Lightning Talk: Digital Transformation Using Cloud Foundry - What Works and What Doesn't Work - Renat Khasanshyn, Altoros

Digital Transformation enables companies of all sizes and industries today to provide new, more effective applications and services. With digital platforms such as Cloud Foundry, enterprise IT is able to be agile, flexible, and therefore responsive to the need for continuous development and integration.

A few examples:

* Shoe companies use data from professional athletes and the general population to determine the most optimal designs for their shoes and other athletic wear.

* In the Industrial GE is able to gather massive analytics from the jet engines and locomotives it manufactures, leading to improvements that save millions of dollars per year for the company and its customers.

* A new era of financial services is emerging with the combination of development and deployment technology, along with blockchain technology that adds new levels of transaction security.

* Government agencies can provide citizen-facing services for routine tasks such as license renewal as well reform and transform major acquisition processes.

This lightning talk covers these and other great Digital Transformations occurring throughout the world today.

Lightning Talk: Why APIs Matter in the Multi-Cloud Strategy - Ed Anuff, Apigee
Regardless of which cloud your applications run in, it needs to communicate to other applications within the same cloud or across public and private clouds. Web APIs have always been the lingua-franca of communication between applications. However, nuances of how APIs are published and managed can mean the difference between a highly agile software development organization, and just a pile of services that cannot communicate to each other. Ed Anuff from Apigee will discuss how to use use API Management to develop APIs that span public and private clouds.

Keynote: From Weeks to Minutes - Simon Johansson, Platform Engineer, & Daniel Otte, Head of Platform Engineering, Springer Nature

Going from weeks to minutes for app deployments, 0 to 4000 requests per second and 0 to 1200 apps in approximately a year.

 In 2014, Springer Nature development teams were globally distributed with no standardization across groups. From commit to production often took more than two weeks, and tasks like provisioning new VMs, configuring networks and firewalls, load balancing, and writing Chef were chores considered too tedious with which to deal. Tribal knowledge resulted in flaky systems that culminated in dev teams who were overly reliant on different ops teams.

When Platform Engineering began to hear faint whispers of “miiiiicro services,” the company knew it needed to do something drastic. This post will drill down into  how Cloud Foundry changed the culture, allowing devs to own their apps in production and worry less about operational hassles, and how Platform Engineering simplified operations and reduced costs across the board.

Recent Enhancements to Routing in Cloud Foundry - Shannon Coen, Pivotal, Carlos Eberhardt, Apigee, and Atul Kshirsagar, GE
Since CF Summit 2015, the core Routing team has been working on two important enhancements to the platform. 

1. Until recently, developers were on their own to implement rate-limiting, authentication, and many request transformation functions offered by API gateway services. Route Services expand the use cases that can be fulfilled by Marketplace services, enabling developers managing apps on CF to inject a service into the request path, or dynamically configure a component already in the request path. User-provided services are also supported! 

2. Some developers would like to run workloads on Cloud Foundry that receive requests over TCP protocols other than http. Some of these protocols require an app to listen on multiple ports. Some developers would prefer to terminate TLS connections at the application. With support for TCP routing and multiple app ports, we enable these use case and more. 

3. Routes with paths are now supported in the CLI!

Cloud Foundry Monitoring and Metrics Collection Using Sensu and Graphite - Jeff Barrows, GE Digital
The Cloud Platform Engineering team at GE Digital are big fans of Cloud Foundry, it's the foundation of their Industrial Cloud Platform called Predix. Their global Cloud Foundry install base serves a developer community of thousands, and run tens of thousands of production application instances. 

One of the key benefits of Cloud Foundry is it's ability to dynamically scale all of it's core components using BOSH. As Cloud Foundry subsystems like runners and routers are scaled out to keep up with demand, ensuring that the new nodes automatically come under monitoring and metrics collection coverage, and keeping health dashboards up to date becomes challenging! 

Jeff Barrows will show how the Cloud Platform Monitoring team is using Sensu, an open-source monitoring framework, and Graphite, an open-source realtime metrics collection solution, to provide health and availability data on all Cloud Foundry components and Marketplace Services. He will also show how they build and maintain summary KPI, health, and utilization dashboards in Grafana - an open source graphing and dashboard visualization tool, and cover some simple strategies they use to help keep everything up to date in a dynamic environment.

Running Cloud Foundry in a Compliance and Security Focused Environment - Diego Lapiduz and Bret A. Mogilefsky, 18F
Running Cloud Foundry in a compliance and security focused environment (Diego Lapiduz and Bret Mogilefsky, cloud.gov - 18F). cloud.gov has adopted Cloud Foundry to host applications for government users in the cloud, tackling one of the core impediments to government service delivery today. In the process of doing that we had to turn up the security of the platform, write composable compliance documentation, and build tools to automatically scan the system and tenant applications. These processes and tools have been built in the open so other members of the community can contribute to them and reuse them in other contexts. 

This talk will show how Cloud Foundry and Bosh made it easy to centralize security and enable redeployment of the whole platform. We will also talk about how we built reusable and composable compliance documentation that can be shared publicly.

BOSH: The Simple Solution for Complex Systems - Kira P. Combs, Pivotal Cloud Foundry
Deploying complex systems is hard. What's even harder is figuring out how to make changes to those systems, parsing which elements of that system are failing, and how to debug and fix the issues in a system in an elegant manner. Thankfully, there is a solution! BOSH allows users to version, package, and deploy both simple and complex software in a reproducible manner. This talk will give a history and overview of the BOSH solution, a brief tutorial on how to get started, how to debug, and finally will give practical guidance and tips on how BOSH can help make complicated product development and deployments a thing of the past.

SHIELD: Protecting CF, Services and Applications Through Backups and Restores - Xiujiao Gao, Stark & Wayne / The University of Buffalo & Wayne E. Seguin, Stark & Wayne
SHIELD is a modularized backup and restore solution which utilizes a plugin based architecture to backup and restore BOSH deployments. 

In this talk, we will mainly focus on how to use SHIELD to assist with our Backup and Restore plan for Cloud Foundry applications and Services which are deployed by BOSH. More specifically, we will show you how to use SHIELD to backup and restore core Cloud Foundry internal services as well as non-core CF services such as Redis, PostgreSQL, MySQL, RabbitMQ, etc.. and how applications can be backed up and restored by adding plugins without having to modify SHIELD core. 

We will also show you the framework of SHIELD which itself is distributed as a BOSH release. It consists of a core daemon, backup target plugins, storage plugins, a CLI and a web UI. The core daemon manages meta data, scheduling, tasks and jobs, it also monitors and verifies the status of backup jobs and archives. Backup target plugins specify what is to be backed up and how it is done. Store plugins specify where (local filesystem, or blobstores such as S3, Swift, Atmos, etc.) backups can be stored and how to put them there and retrieve them back. The CLI is used for controlling all aspects of the system, such as backing up, restoring, setting retention policies, scheduling, job & task management, etc.

Streamlining the BOSH Experience - Maria Shaldibina & Shatarupa Nandi, Pivotal
BOSH has proven to be a go-to tool for managing Cloud Foundry and other complex service installations. But when infrastructure grows and number of deployments increases significantly new challenges arise: how easy is it to configure each deployment and connect them together, or how can deployment operators quickly understand requirements specified by software they are deploying. BOSH has made lots of progress in the past year to solve challenges of large multi-deployment installations. 

In this talk core BOSH contributors will introduce recently released BOSH features and improvements with the aim of lowering the barrier to entry to deploying software with BOSH. Service broker authors, distributed software developers, release and operations engineers will be provided with new tools to compose and share cluster topologies. 

Maria and Rupa will also talk about the development process: driving features with a comprehensive test suite (including fuzz and load tests), overcoming friction in a well-established open-source codebase, extending functionality while maintaining backwards compatibility and enabling recovery from misconfigurations while migrating to new functionality.

Delivering Heterogeneous Architectures - Casey West, Pivotal
Middleware lock-in is over. In a world of lightweight, containerized workloads the need to standardize on a commong middleware is no more. With Cloud Foundry's buildpack ecosystem the need to manage middleware yourself is further nonexistant. This is truly exciting as is eliminates the operational overhead of using the right tool for the right job. Cloud Foundry, with officially supported and open source buildpacks, supports more than 50 programming languages, frameworks, an runtime environments. This rich ecosystem empowers your engineers to explore new tools and environments without burdening your operators with the need to learn, manage, and maintain new runtime environments. 

What even is a buildpack? How are they managed? How are they used? How do I make my own? In this talk we'll answer all those questions. 

We'll dissect a buildpack and examine its internals. Learn how Cloud Foundry builds containers for your applications in its staging environment. Learn how operators deploy, enable, and upgrade buildpacks. we'll expore the separation of responsibility Cloud Foundry offers to empower operations to control the runtime environmnents carefully whilst providing maximum flexibility to engineering safely. Learn how to specify buildpacks when deploying applications, and how to manage runtime upgrades and security fixes with minimal developer disruption. Finally, learn how to write a custom buildpack for specialized runtime environments. 

Cloud Foundry will run almost any cloud-native application in almost any runtime environment. We may never support COBOL, but after this talk you'll see how Cloud Foundry support's the rest of your heterogeneous architecture.

BoF: Message Based Applications as First-Class Citizens in Cloud Foundry - Geoffrey M. Arnold, Sensity Systems
There is increasing interest in the use of so-called “reactive microservice” application patterns to build scalable, low-latency applications with minimal developer friction. The best known of these systems is AWS Lambda. Although it is possible to build such applications in Cloud Foundry, using pub-sub messaging for communications, it requires developers to forgo much of the orchestration and automation provided by Cloud Foundry for deployment and scaling. In this session, we’ll discuss how message-based applications can become first-class citizens in Cloud Foundry by extending service configuration and automation to include message broker binding and configuration.

Cloud Foundry: The Gaps - John Wetherill, BNY Mellon
BNY Mellon, the oldest bank in the US and one of the most influential financial institutions in the world, has made a firm commitment to Cloud Foundry as a key component of our cloud technology stack. The reasoning is clear: we are a financial institution focusing on financial problems, and don't want to be in business of building infrastructure and platform software, instead wanting to take advantage of open-source community-driven software so we can focus on our business challenges. 

Cloud Foundry meets several of our requirements for a highly-available, flexible, secure, and scalable platform , but it's not a panacea and has some gaps that we are forced to fill using other technologies. Specifically these gaps include support for non-http workloads, service discovery, multi-datacenter orchestration and failover support, application grouping (assembly) concepts, OS support, and more. 

This technical session will focus on many of these gaps that the open source Cloud Foundry platform currently doesn't cover, and will present in depth the solutions, including other open source software technologies, that we are building to fill those gaps, to deliver a flexible and reliable platform that fosters modern cloud practices including microservices, containerization, and continuous delivery. 

Developers, DevOps, sys-admins, and IT decision makers in any industry will benefit from the lessons we've learned.

Giving Cloud Foundry APIs Their Swagger Back - Michael Maximilien, IBM Cloud Labs & Tony Tam, SmartBear
The Open API Specification (née Swagger 2.0) is a comprehensive language for describing Web APIs (e.g., REST) using a JSON. Using the description of a Web API one can easily generate all types of artifacts (docs, clients, proxies, and so on) that are useful to consumers, developers, and maintainers of the API.  

CF-Swagger is an incubation project in CloudFoundry where we have applied Swagger to various CF APIs in order to generate value. For instance, by having a Swagger description of the Service Broker APIs we are able to generate a Golang Test Compatibility Kit (TCK) that makes it easy for a CF service administrator to vet whether a service broker conforms to a particular version of the service broker API. 

We have also described various other CF APIs using Swagger with the goal to allowing specific useful tasks. In this talk we will give a complete overview of the various CF APIs we have swaggerized, along with some of the useful consequences of the description. We will also discuss general directions of the project along with other potential applications by looking at how the Swagger community is currently taking advantage of APIs' descriptions.

The Cloud Foundry Bits-Service Myth Buster! - Simon Moser & Marc Schunk, IBM and Stev Witzel, Pivotal
Did you ever wonder what that mythical ‘bits-service’ incubation project is? Has the CloudFoundry community finally lost their minds and started on a competition with OpenStack Swift or Amazon S3? Hell NO! This talk will introduce the current state and give an outlook to the future of the “bits-service” [1] project. In short, the bits-service is an extraction of an existing functionality in the cloud controller today - externalising everything related to bits (application bits, droplets, packages, buildpacks, …) into a proper micro service. It can be scaled independently, is encapsulated by a well-defined API, so its a generic BLOBSTORE API, right? Mmm…. maybe come and join the team (the first community project equally staffed with engineers of IBM and Pivotal) in the talk and let us handle your bits!

Broker for Custom Applications - Jakub Różański, Intel
TAP (Trusted analytics Platform - https://github.com/trustedanalytics) is open-source software, optimized for performance and security, that accelerates the creation of cloud-native applications driven by Big Data analytics. This integrated platform simplifies solution development and delivers value from data faster by providing a collaborative, flexible environment for advanced analytics in public and private clouds. It’s built on top of Cloud Foundry and Hadoop stack. 

Fundamental goal of TAP is to integrate many different solutions related to data analysis as a reusable services available on the platform. Although, implementing separate broker for every single service is time consuming so. As a result TAP introduced a tool called Application-Broker (https://github.com/trustedanalytics/application-broker). It is a generic solution that makes it easy to create new applications in service-like manner in the Cloud Foundry Marketplace and provisioning these applications with appropriate configuration and dealing with their dependencies. Using application-broker allows to make a reusable service out of a simple application within one click of a developer’s mouse.

Frequent Flying Foundry Style: An IoT Microservices and Secure Insight Platform for the Aviation Industry - Sarah Cooper, M2Mi & Shyam Nath, GE Digital
The potential role of Internet of Things in next generation Airports and the broader Aviation Ecosystem is astounding. From reducing trip time to decreasing on-tarmac collisions, IoT’s enablement of shared real time resources and cross-ecosystem collaboration dramatically changes the value generation game in a traditionally siloed industry. The key to unlocking the cross-ecosystem potential is the creation of a secure, shared Aviation services platform that allows stakeholders to securely share insights without compromising data integrity and ownership. CloudFoundry is the perfect basis for such an industry shared resource. 

M2Mi and GE, along with several industry players are developing an Industrial IoT platform for Aviation based on the combination of M2Mi’s IoT platform and GE’s Predix platform on Cloud Foundry. This Aviation Shared IIoT Services platform serves as the basis for the Industrial Internet Consortium's Aviation Testbed and consists of aviation and airport control and data services with industry specific microservices for the real time management of cybersecurity, insight generation and private information sharing.

Container Networking in Cloud Foundry - Matthew Sykes, IBM & Gabriel Rosenhouse, Pivotal
Modern applications consist of small, highly interconnected, independently scalable units of deployment that are often referred to as “microservices.” When you deploy these services on Cloud Foundry today, they are forced to communicate via routes that are advertised to the external routing tier. Not only does this force all services to be exposed to external clients, it adds significant latency to the interactions between services. 

What if instead of exposing routes to all of your services, you could define the network topology that’s right for your application? How about defining an isolation policy to prevent unauthorized access? What about enabling secure access to existing networks? 

The Cloud Foundry Container Networking project hopes to make these things a reality. Come learn about where we are today, where we’re going, and how you can help us get there.

Hybrid Cloud in Finance - John Wetherill, BNY Mellon (moderator), David Lewis, BNY Mellon, and Asif Alam, Thomson Reuters, Janga Aliminati, Visa

Every major global financial institution is encountering the cloud, and each is adopting it in their own way. Some are diving in the deep end, moving all software delivery to public cloud like AWS or Azure. Others choose to keep everything on premise. Others are taking a "wait and see" approach, while still others are combining the best of both public and private clouds, adopting a hybrid strategy. 

This technical panel discussion features thought leaders from several major global finance corporations. It will explore the role of hybrid cloud in global enterprise software delivery. The  panelists will present their unique experienced viewpoints on the pros and cons of hybrid cloud, the reasons they have, or have not moved to hybrid, and the challenges they're facing in whatever cloud adoption strategy they've chosen, whether public, private, or hybrid.  This promises to be an invigorating, charged, and possibly somewhat controversial debate.

Dockerizing BOSH Releases-Fissile - Vlad Iovanov & Aaron Lefkowitz, HPE
Fissile is a tool that allows developers to convert BOSH releases into Docker images as part of a build pipeline. 

Because BOSH releases are precisely structured, we are able to craft Docker images that contain jobs and packages, similar to what you get after BOSH provisions you a VM. The difference is that with Fissile, this process happens in as part of your build (not at deployment time), and there are no Agents involved. The result - you get to deploy Cloud Foundry as Docker images and configure them via environment variables. 

Fissile is written in Go. It provides a CLI that takes you each step of the process: package compilation, job configuration, Docker layer management and final image creation. It has multi-release support, so you can create Docker images with components from more than one release.

On-Demand Service Provisioning with BOSH 2.0 - Alex Ley & Craig Furman, Pivotal
Alex & Craig have been busy building what they are calling “On-Demand Services”, leveraging new features arriving in BOSH 2.0. For the first time, app developers will have the ability to deploy dedicated resources by simply running `cf create-service`. For example, app developers could create a dedicated RabbitMQ cluster or a customised Redis instance for their application. 

You will be taken behind the scenes, showing how an app developer’s CF CLI request will trigger a service broker to create a new BOSH deployment which results in freshly created virtual machines. 

Finally, they will discuss and demonstrate what challenges on-demand services bring to operating the Cloud Foundry platform and exciting new user experiences that we could start to offer.

Chaos Heidi vs. Orchard: Self-Disruption and Healing in a Cloud Foundry-Based Service Environment - Diego Zamboni, Swisscom & Bill Chapman, Stark & Wayne
Cloud Foundry has built-in health management and self-healing capabilities. But when delivering a Cloud Foundry-based service, it is not sufficient to monitor and heal the Cloud Foundry components, since the end-to-end functionality of the service also depends on the state of the entire infrastructure surrounding and supporting Cloud Foundry. This includes the hardware, virtualization and networking platforms on which it runs, the CF Services available, the user interface, and even the billing systems. 

To this effect, at Swisscom we have built an overarching Health Management platform called Orchard, which not only monitors and notifies about failures in our Application Cloud platform, but has the ability to trigger automated responses to heal those failures automatically. To challenge Orchard’s abilities, we have also developed Chaos Heidi, a self-disruption platform that allows us to cause failure scenarios of different types. 

In this talk we will describe Orchard and Chaos Heidi, including their motivation and architecture, their current implementations, and our challenges and ideas for the future.

Black holes are dark. That’s their essence. That’s the defining feature that earned them a name. They are dark against a dark sky. They are a shadow against a bright sky. A telescope has never found one unadorned. Bare black holes – those too solitary to tear down sufficient debris – in their obliterating darkness are practically impossible to observe, but not entirely impossible. I will describe the aspiration to detect black holes (and other cataclysmic events) that culminated in the discovery of the century: The first human-procured recordings of a gravitational-wave sound from the collision of two black holes 1.3 billion years ago.

Keynote: Cloud Native Transformation - The Journey Begins Here! - Ken Owens, CTO of Cloud Infrastructure Services, Cisco

Developers are driving the market for cloud consumption and leading each industry into the new era of software defined disruption. There are no longer questions about elastic and flexible agile development as the way to innovate and reduce time to market for businesses. However, current cloud solutions do not enable application development platforms natively or provide the ability to create applications that are cloud native with elastic services. In addition, businesses are moving to application development architectures leveraging microservices, which are becoming more strategic to their business strategy. When making the decision to build and operate an application in a cloud platform, microservices become central to your application architecture and strategy.  

This presentation will describe the Cloud Foundry contributions that address current devops challenges, the data platform that is required to support the business analytics, and the build, deploy, and run, including application monitoring and advanced user plane network enhancements.

The overall architecture of the combined contributions will be described with a customer use case.

Keynote: Delivering Simpler, Clearer, Faster Government Services with Cloud Foundry - Lindsay Holmwood, Head of Development, Australian Government Digital Transformation Office
Nobody interacts with government because they want to - they interact with government because they have to, and most people come away from online interactions feeling more confused than when they started.

That's why the Digital Transformation Office was created in 2015 – to change the way Australian governments deliver services, by relentlessly focusing all delivery activities on user needs, and modernising technical delivery methods.

Cloud Foundry is at the core of this technical modernisation, with the DTO providing a Cloud Foundry-based delivery platform to government for building new services. Every team gets a CD pipeline, centralised monitoring and logging, and an app runtime – driving a culture change through tools.

In this talk we'll learn about the problems with the traditional approach to digital service delivery in government, what opportunities Cloud Foundry creates for architecting the delivery of user-focused services, and how Cloud Foundry enables the DTO to help government deliver simpler, clearer, faster public services.

Keynote: Enterprise DevOps: Balancing Innovation Velocity with Business Requirements - Brian Gallagher, President, Cloud Management Division, EMC
The emerging model of DevOps in IT is accelerating digital business transformation around the globe. This model is very different than the traditional application development model that has been the cornerstone of IT for decades. New innovations in software can now be delivered with greater velocity, lower cost, better quality and increased customer adoption. However, balancing the governance, risk and compliance requirements of the business remain challenging with this new model. In fact, many of the attributes of ‘dev’ and ‘ops’ are diametrically opposed. This session will focus on aspects of DevOps that enable the balance of innovation velocity with business GRC requirements. This will include a deeper look and comparison of the new application lifecycle, the business lifecycle, developer frameworks, Platform as a Service (specifically Cloud Foundry) and Infrastructure as a Service alternatives.

Breaking the CF-Release Monolith - Alvaro Perez-Shirley & David Sabeti, Pivotal
Breaking the cf-release Monolith ( Alvaro Perez-Shirley and David Sabeti, Pivotal)

The release integration team, with the help of many other teams, is breaking the monolith that is cf-release. This enables faster iteration on independent components, increased testability, and reusability while also bringing hidden dependencies into the foreground.

This involves re-thinking the way CI for cf-release is done, how the structure of cf-release was changed, and how manifests are generated for cf-release. The changes that are happening are making it easier for contributors to quickly and efficiently iterate on their contributions while reducing the risk of blocking or breaking the integration of the separate components of cf-release.

As a result of these changes releases are happening more quickly. This enables consumers to frequently upgrade and gain all the benefits of new features, security patches, and smaller release sizes thanks to component reuse, and release composability.

Many challenges were encountered during this process. Hear about how these were tackled, why the decision was made to break the release into independent components, and how it’s being done.

Scaling a Distributed Container Management System: Diego Performance - James Myers & Luan dos Santos. Pivotal
As a distributed container management system, it is important that Diego not only runs containers, but it does so in a quick and timely manner. In small deployments with manageable work loads, it is easy for us to guarantee that Diego adheres to these performance requirements. However, as both the scale of the deployment and the amount of containers increases, it has become increasingly challenging for us to validate that Diego maintains its performance characteristics.

This talk will dive into the steps that we took to design, perform, evaluate, and improve performance testing that has given us confidence in Diego as a backend to Cloud Foundry. Topics will include: how the Diego team designed performance experiments and testing suites given product requirements, how we evaluate a performant Diego environment, results that led to various performance changes in the system, and lastly how the Diego team is continuing to build out infrastructure to validate Diego’s performance at a larger scale on a more regular basis.

This new capability was designed with APIs in mind, and makes it easy to add security, authentication, and caching to requests. The Apigee team will walk through their experiences in building one of the first Service Brokers to leverage route services and will discuss how to build and deploy a full-featured API management platform as a route service and illustrate the use of Swagger/Open API to create a range of features such as quota enforcement, spike arrests and content caching. We'll also discuss the performance issues and provide some thoughts on how to best work around them. As part of the session, a case study of GE Predix using Cloud Foundry with Apigee will be presented.

Will it Run on *My* OpenStack? – Building an Executable Validation Testsuite for CPIs - Beyhan Veli, SAP SE & Cornelius Schumacher, SUSE Linux
There is not *one OpenStack*, there are plenty. Installations differ by version, by set of enabled projects, and by configuration. Validating that Bosh can be used on a specific installation is a tedious and error-prone manual task. The fact that the teams using Bosh are not the ones responsible for setting up and running OpenStack doesn’t help either.
The Bosh OpenStack CPI team is building an executable validation test suite that gives non Bosh-experts a tool to find out if an OpenStack installation is ready to run Bosh, or which changes need to be done.

The testsuite is based on the generic lifecycle contract between Bosh and the external CPI. It can also become useful for all authors of additional CPIs. They can plugin their CPI implementation and configuration to test against a different IaaS than OpenStack instead of writing their own lifecycle testsuite.

In this talk, we show how the testsuite can be used to validate an OpenStack installation and how authors of other CPIs could use the testsuite to avoid building their own generic lifecycle tests. Furthermore, we show how IaaS specific tests can be added to account for differences between the IaaS and CPI implementations.

Beyond CF Push - Managing Large Microservice Applications like a BOSH - Christof Marti, ZHAW Zurich University of Applied Sciences
Cloud Foundry makes it exceptionally simple to deploy and manage applications with simple commands like 'cf push'. However, what if your application grows in complexity, the number of deployed components explodes and it becomes difficult to keep an overview of the required services and bindings? Many organisations are facing these challenges sooner or later. So did dorma+kaba Group, one of the world’s leading providers of security and access solutions, while developing their new internet based Access-as-a-Service solution - Exivo. The development team had to manage more than 60 applications using 30+ services running in multiple environments. Deployment scripts and CI-Server configurations where getting to complex, inflexible and slow. This lead to the decision to develop a more flexible, reliable and faster deployment tool. Together with members of the ZHAW School of Engineering Init Cloud Computing Lab (ICCLab) the "Cloud Foundry Deployment Toolkit" was designed and implemented.

Leveraging the successful concepts of BOSH to manage applications on-top of Cloud Foundry by separating the application structure from the deployment configuration, it facilitates dynamic deployment of complex applications to multiple runtime environments with minimal effort. By comparing the actual with the desired state, the framework provides workflows to automatically detect the minimal required changes to update an application to a new release with zero downtime. The support for individual workflows allows more complex scenarios, including for example migrations of versioned data stores.

The framework helped dorma+kaba to streamline the deployment workflow and cut deployment times by more than a factor of two.

Air Marshal: No More Secrets In Your Manifests - Michael Brodhead, Stark & Wayne
In real-world use our BOSH and Concourse manifests are littered with secrets: passwords, AWS credentials, SSH keys, you name it. Dealing with these secrets is a pain in the neck. If we check secrets into source control then there are myriad ways to accidentally leak them. Without source control distribution becomes a hassle and we still have some risk of leaking. Ideally we would like to keep production secrets off staff workstations altogether.

Enter Air Marshal. Air Marshal acts as a proxy between staff workstations and BOSH or Concourse. Manifests checked into source control have placeholders wherever secrets are necessary. Air Marshal reads secrets from a secure back-end, adding them to manifests where needed.

Monitoring Cloud Foundry: Learning about the Firehose - Dustin Ruehle & Tom Collings, ECS Team
Distributed and massively scalable systems are difficult to design, implement, and operate. Further, microservice architectures are supposed to enable your business to be disruptive and innovative. Cloud Foundry provides that solution for modern, cloud native architectures and accelerates the ability to transform operational and development practices. The aggregated logging subsystem of Cloud Foundry, the Loggregator, is a key component of this transformation. And within the Loggregator, the firehose is where log and metric data is consumed. This talk will walk through how to consume the firehose and dive into the anatomy of the various firehose message types. Several use cases and lessons learned monitoring the platform versus an application will be covered to further demonstrate how Cloud Foundry can facilitate innovation.

Do More with Your Apps: Unleashing the Power of the Cloud Controller V3 API - Utako Ueda & Daniel Wendorf, Pivotal
Some of the biggest problems developers have had with the Cloud Controller API have traditionally revolved around lifecycle management of their apps. The lack of features like version rollbacks, zero downtime deployment, running one-off tasks, simplified database migration, and running multiple processes per application have frustrated many developers.

The CAPI team is working on making all this and more possible with V3 of the cloud controller API. The new application modelling provides much more flexibility and control over the workflows available to you for application deployment. Many of these features are already available as pre-release/experimental APIs on recent versions of Cloud Foundry.

Utako and Dan will explain how to take advantage of these (as well as some existing functionality you may not have seen before). This talk is targeted towards application developers at any experience level who would like to learn more about taking advantage of and building tooling using the Cloud Controller API V3. Attendees can expect a live demo showing real use cases for these features.

Cloud Foundry and ODPi Working Towards Enabling Cloud-Native, Data-Driven Applications - Roman Shaposhnik, Pivotal and Richard Pelavin, Reactor8 Inc.
While Cloud Foundry Foundation drives global awareness, adoption and development of the de-facto open source, industry standard platform for cloud applications, ODPi is an open source foundation focusing on promoting and advancing the state of Apache Hadoop® and Big Data technologies for the enterprise. We believe that working together these two major open source efforts could accelerate the arrival of true cloud-native, data-driven applications for the enterprise. 

In this talk we will describe how BOSH is shaping up to be a universal cloud abstraction layer allowing any ODPi certified product to achieve cloud portability and thus replacing a plethora of ad-hoc and single vendor tools. We will talk about how ODPi hopes to champion stateful use cases for BOSH allowing any data base-live service to benefit from CFF technology. Finally, we will spend time exploring options around standardizing data services and service brokers enabling application developers to start focusing on the holy grail of not only cloud-native, but cloud-native AND data-driven applications.

Using the Theory of Constraints to Prioritize Applications for Migration to Cloud Foundry - Mark Carlson, ECS Team
Cloud Foundry has enjoyed a tremendous adoption rate by Fortune 500 enterprises and large government agencies at both the state and federal level. Large organizations are turning to Cloud Foundry's agile infrastructure to help remove the friction of deploying and operation applications in both public and private clouds.

Most of these large firms start their cloud-native journey with small or moderately sized pilot applications. Once these have enabled the "pioneers" within the organization to share their success, the attention turns to the large, sometimes massive, portfolios of existing applications.
The challenge common to all of these large organization is to devise a strategy for selecting applications to migrate to the newly implemented cloud-native platform.

In this talk, you will learn about an approach to analyzing an existing application portfolio using the theory of constraints in addition to the more common criteria of size, technical fit and business function. By identifying the "innovation bottlenecks" within your organization, it is possible to select the set of applications (and development teams) to migrate to your newly implemented cloud-native application platform for maximum business impact.

The talk will share some of the lessons learned from application migration projects within large enterprises like yours that can be used to avoid dangers encountered by others. It will also include some tips and practices shared by successful travelers ahead of you on the road to cloud-native.

Attendees will learn about three phases of cloud-native application migration, how the constraint theory can supplement other more common selection criteria and how to jump start your organizations application migration.

Thus, the Diego team works hard to ensure the quality of each release they publish. At the same time, the steps involved in creating a final release must be quick and easy. A critical aspect of agile software development is being able to turn out new features and security fixes rapidly.

In this talk, Jen and Andrew from Diego discuss the battery of tests Diego code is run through along with the design of the team’s continuous integration pipeline. They will discuss the testing strategies and tools used at different verification scopes (unit, component, cross-component, etc.) and spend some extra time discussing the test suites specific to Diego, such as the upgradability suite and the BBS benchmarking suite. Attendees will learn how they can apply these techniques to their own projects and feel more confident in the software they release.

Running Apache Usergrid Open Source BaaS on Cloud Foundry - Jeff West & Michael Russo, Apigee Corporation
Apache Usergrid makes it possible for deliver data to mobile apps at over 50,000 requests per second while providing a flexible data model and graph database API. Now, running Usergrid on Cloud Foundry is easier than ever, with a slick Service Broker integration. Come hear how the Usergrid team architected the solution using Cassandra and ElasticSearch to enable this powerful open-source platform. We will discuss all aspects of the architecture as well as important design decisions made during the development process. As part of the session, a case study of T-Mobile using Cloud Foundry with Apigee and Apache Usergrid will be presented.

CF-Abacus: Introduction to the Standard Metering and Aggregation Engine for Cloud Foundry - Jean-Sebastien Delfino, IBM & Hristo Iliev, SAP
As Cloud Foundry (CF) matures into the dominant Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) the focus of development has been shifting towards re-engineering components for scale and stability as well as increasingly towards adding components that allows it to be used in commercial environments.

CF-Abacus is a metering and aggregation engine extracted from IBM's Bluemix. It enables the aggregation and metering (flexible pricing) of various usage data (service, apps, and buildpacks) so that the resulting output can be presented to end users and used for subsequent billing. For instance, a user with a few apps connected to several services can see the cost breakdown for each app, each service, over time and get projection of their costs as well.

In this talk we will cover briefly how CF-Abacus came into fruition, we will describe its micro-services architecture, detail where it is going, and how you can use it into your own (private or public) CF environments.

Is My App Still Up? Monitoring Your Cloud Native Application - Johannes Tuchscherer, Pivotal
With the introduction of the Cloud Native application, we are seeing a paradigm shift on how an application is developed and deployed. But development and deployment are just two phases of the application lifecycle. Equally important is the next phase in which the operator has to monitor the application to keep it up and running 24/7.

In this talk, Johannes Tuchscherer is going to explore how the idea of Application Performance Management has to adopt from its classical roots to keep up with Cloud Native applications. He is going to explain what KPIs are important for an application that is running on Cloud Foundry and how to actually get those numbers from the platform.

Swift Workshop - Anton McConville, IBM
Many of us are gracefully transitioning to Swift on the client, but now we can develop with Swift in the cloud too! Native iOS developers can become full stack engineers - in much the same way Front End JavaScript developers could with Node.js.

In this session we introduce Swift programming with Cloud Foundry. We load some open data, and surface it in a browser, exploring the syntax, opportunities and quirks of the Swift language. Leave the workshop with an understanding of how to do it yourself, and think about the possibilities of using Swift full stack within your projects.
