Hackathon - Sponsored by VMware

Register Now!

Come join an enthusiastic bunch of Cloud Foundry developers in this first annual Summit Hackathon!  Bring your ideas and energy as we build interesting prototypes to extend CF functionality where it has never gone before.  Come with a team or come on your own and find a team during the event. Top three teams get awesome prizes and first place winners will be invited on stage during the Thursday morning keynotes to receive their awards.  This is a free event.  Pre-registration (add it to your Summit registration) required.

Topics: Any project that extends and enhances CF in an interesting way.  This could include: new CLI plugins, new buildpacks, additional multi-cloud capabilities via BOSH CPIs, innovative services or marketplace capabilities, reusing a Cloud Foundry component in a unique way, etc.  The overall goal here is to build on Cloud Foundry itself, not to build applications that run on Cloud Foundry.

Rules: Maximum of 4 individuals per team, and 80% of code should be written during the event.

Keynote: The Makers of Marvels: How Developers Are Rebuilding the Enterprise, One Brick at a Time - Abby Kearns, Executive Director, Cloud Foundry Foundation
History teaches us that astonishing feats occur not when a singular leader envisions them, but when a mass of skilled workers collaborates to transform that vision into something material. The Pyramids of Giza, for example, were not built overnight by a Pharaoh, but constructed by tens of thousands of workers over a period of years. Today’s “pyramid” is quite a bit smaller, but a wonder of the world in its own right: The iPhone has transformed the world as we know it -- but most of its power comes from the app store, which offers thousands of apps created from the imaginations of thousands of developers. These developers are the makers of marvels in our time. They instantiate the very concept of digital transformation -- that notion of infrastructure disruption and re-assembly on the mind of every CIO. Business development is driven by software development, and software development is shaped by developers in the open source community.

In her talk, Abby Kearns empowers developers to think of themselves as the doers and makers who hold the key to unlocking digital transformation. She will cover the importance of diversity among developers for the technology industry to evolve and to reflect its user base, and will highlight the key open source concepts and technologies powering this trans-industrial transformation.

Project Gaia: How We are Transforming Technology at JPMorgan Chase [B] - Matthew Liste & Bryn Worgan, JPMorgan Chase
Three years ago, we were given a mission: “Go forth and change the way that we enable our 40,000 strong technology division at the bank to deliver business value; make it frictionless, make it fast, make it cheap”. Thus “Project Gaia” was born, and we embarked upon a journey of building out cloud services for our developers, leveraging best-in-class technology platforms. Last March, we delivered an enterprise-grade private cloud into production built on Cloud Foundry and other core technologies, and have seen massive interest and ramp-up from our developers. The success of Gaia was a key driver for the bank adopting a ‘cloud-first’ approach, enabling significant developer productivity. This talk will cover our journey over the last three years, the underpinning technologies that we’ve leveraged, the details of how we use Cloud Foundry, the challenges we have faced, and our future direction.

Cloud Native Java [B] - Josh Long, Pivotal
“It is not necessary to change. Survival is not mandatory.” -W. Edwards Deming

Work takes time to flow through an organization and ultimately be deployed to production where it captures value. It’s critical to reduce time-to-production. Software - for many organizations and industries - is a competitive advantage.

Organizations break their larger software ambitions into smaller, independently deployable, feature -centric batches of work - microservices. In order to reduce the round-trip between stations of work, organizations collapse or consolidate as much of them as possible and automate the rest; developers and operations beget “devops,” cloud-based services and platforms (like Cloud Foundry) automate operations work and break down the need for ITIL tickets and change management boards.

But velocity, for velocity’s sake, is dangerous. Microservices invite architectural complexity that few are prepared to address. In this talk, we’ll look at how high performance organizations like Ticketmaster, Alibaba, and Netflix make short work of that complexity with Spring Boot and Spring Cloud.

Breathe Into the Node.js [B] - Mark Hinkle, Linux Foundation
Node.js is becoming increasingly more popular with 7 million users per month and growing at a rate of 100% year-over-year. Although the application platform is attracting a lot of new developers, it is also attracting Java, Ruby and Python developers, especially as more enterprises explore microservices.

Node.js is a dynamically typed language and if you are trying to approach this application platform like Java, Ruby and Python, you are bound to fail.

This presentation will provide an overview of why Node.js is the right choice for PaaS and how best to approach this language if you are a traditional Java, Ruby or Python developer.

Cloud Foundry Diego Overview - Eric Malm, Pivotal
Do you love the simplicity and ease of pushing your application to Cloud Foundry but want to know what happens to your app instances under the hood? Do you operate a Cloud Foundry deployment and need to understand how all its different components work together to keep applications running?

After years of development, Diego has now replaced the previous DEA system as the official container runtime at the heart of Cloud Foundry, capable of running even the largest CF deployments. In this talk, the project lead for the Diego team will survey how the Diego components interact with each other and with the other subsystems inside of CF to run application instances, how those interactions have changed over the past year to improve system stability, security, and scale, and how to use tooling such as the CF Diego Operator Toolkit ("cfdot") to inspect the app instances and tasks in a deployment. This talk will also review how Diego enables powerful platform features such as container networking and volume plugins, and discuss other upcoming features that CF teams are actively working on and exploring today.

After attending this talk, you'll be ready to operate your Diego-backed CF deployment with confidence and to take advantage of the powerful features it unlocks for your applications.

What's New in the Cloud Foundry Ecosystem? - Alex Zalesov, Altoros
A lot has changed in the Cloud Foundry ecosystem in the recent year. But how have these changes influenced the everyday life of the platform operations engineer? What has changed in the developer’s workflow? A year ago one needed to provision a virtual machine for the broker—today, a broker can be deployed as an ordinary application. Previously, a developer had to add authentication code to each of the applications—now a single routing service on top of all apps is used. In this talk, Alex will describe the changes accommodated by our engineers interacting with Cloud Foundry on a day-to-day basis. Alex will describe the features that saved us most time, and the ones that increased our confidence in the platform’s ability to self-heal in the face of failure. Also, Alex will touch upon the most anticipated features that we believe will make our lives much easier.

TrueRec.io: A Blockchain Project Running on Cloud Foundry [B] - Nethaji Tummuru, Michael Kunzmann & Mario Ponce, SAP
We all have gone through the process of hiring or applying for a job. In most cases, it's very tedious to verify a candidate's credentials (academic, employment, professional records), and even more to prove one’s own credentials. After the job offer, the bureaucracy starts. One of the most time-consuming processes is background checks to verify the applicant’s identity, education and employment history. How can a recruiter trust a resume the moment he receives it? How can resume records be notarized and verified in a blink of an eye with bullet-proof confidence? Is it possible to empower applicants to provide pre-verified records and still allow them the ownership of their information? TrueRec solves all these problems by utilizing Blockchain , Machine Learning all built on Cloud Foundry.

In this talk, we will discuss about the building blocks , blockchain architecture and cloud foundry components that we have leveraged.

Getting Started with Node.js on Cloud Foundry [B] - Joe Doyle & Patrick Mueller, NodeSource
Node.js is the fastest growing runtime used in Cloud Foundry. If you’re just getting started with building Node.js applications for Cloud Foundry, you may have a lot of questions about best practices for this runtime environment. How can you test an application locally? Should you push your package dependencies, or let the staging machine download them? Should you be pushing your Node.js applications as Docker containers? How do you deal with private packages? How do you debug your application?

This presentation will cover these questions and more, by building a new Node.js application designed to be run in Cloud Foundry. Existing Node.js developers will probably learn a trick or two as well!

Unlocking Diego: Achieving Distributed Robustness Through Simplicity and Reliability [A] - Nima Kaviani, IBM & Adrian Zankich, Pivotal
Cloud Foundry makes extensive use of Consul as a distributed key/value store in order to achieve active-passive high availability for components that are harder to operate in parallel. This is done through implementing a distributed locking mechanism that allows the active component to claim ownership of the lock and take responsibility on execution.

However, Consul’s underlying RAFT algorithm becomes fragile when the entire environment undergoes multiple BOSH re-deployments. This results in an array of different failures, e.g., Consul not being able to elect a leader or mistakenly choosing multiple nodes as leaders. These recurring inconsistencies in Consul can potentially reduce reliability in a distributed system like Cloud Foundry.

In Diego, as one of the primary subsystems of Cloud Foundry, we have taken advantage of Consul’s distributed locking mechanism in several components such as the Diego database (BBS), the auctioneer, and the route emitters. As such, we have spent extensive amount of time to understand how these distributed locks can potentially be avoided or redesigned in order to reduce dependencies to Consul. To this point, two of the Diego components, i.e., the route emitters and the database have adopted alternative solutions to achieve high availability.

In this talk, we will go over lessons learned from using Consul in Cloud Foundry, and how we are trying to find alternative solutions that can help with improving robustness and reliability of Diego components without having to use a complex system like Consul.

Using Bosh Add-Ons to Customize your CF Experience [I] - Bridget Arthur & Josh Ghiloni, ECS Team
Bosh add-ons are a new feature that allows teams to customize the virtual machines in their bosh deployment. Although this was previously accomplished through complex post-deploy orchestrations or fragile stemcell modifications, the bosh add-on is a simple, flexible mechanism that plugs directly into any existing bosh 2.0 manifest.

Often times operators discover that the standard VM does not contain some of the VM-level monitoring tools commonly used in troubleshooting. Using this situation as a working example, attendees will learn:
- The use cases for bosh add-ons
- The details and mechanics of how add-ons work
- How to create a bosh add-on
- How to integrate it with an existing bosh deployment

To Kill a Monolith: Slaying the Demons of a Monolith with Node.js Microservices on CloudFoundry [I] - Tony Erwin, IBM
The Bluemix UI (which runs on CloudFoundry) is the front-end to Bluemix, IBM's open cloud hosting platform. The original implementation as a single-page, monolithic Java web app brought with it many demons, such as poor performance, lack of scalability, inability to push small updates, and difficulty for other teams to contribute code. Over the last 2 years, the team has been on a mission to slay these demons by embracing cloud native principles and splitting the monolith into smaller Node.js microservices. The effort to migrate to a more modern and scalable architecture has paid large dividends, but has also left behind a few battle scars from wrestling with the added complexity cloud native can bring. The team had to tackle problems in a wide variety of areas, including: large-scale deployments, continuous integration, monitoring, problem determination, high availability, and security. Tony Erwin will discuss the advantages of microservice architectures, ways that Node.js has increased developer productivity, approaches to phasing microservices into a live product, and real-life lessons learned in the deployment and management of Node.js microservices across multiple CloudFoundry environments. His war stories will prepare you to wage your own battles against monoliths everywhere -- happy slaying!

Garden Project Update [I] - Julz Friedman, IBM
You may know that Cloud Foundry uses Garden as its API for Container Management. But why does CF use Garden rather than Docker? What are the major features and advantages of the Garden Container Engine? How does Garden relate to other container technology you may have heard of (like OCI, runC, CRI-O, containerd and docker)? What security features does Garden give you out-of-the-box that other technologies make you configure?

In addition, this talk will provide an update on some of the major advances in Cloud Foundry Containers over the past year, including:

The Move to RunC - ensuring CF uses the exact same low-level open-standards-based container-runtime as other platforms (e.g. Kubernetes, Docker etc).

Plugin API - allowing extension and experimentation in the platform, including container to container networking and more performance and supported overlayfs-based root filesystem management.

Security Advances - Garden is the most secure container-runtime *out of the box* for multi-tenant deployments. We now take the guess-work out of configuring your container engine for multi-tenant deployments by enabling and configuring the needed features out of the box.

Docker Auth, CPU Maximums, Better DNS Support - lots of new work for operability in large-scale environments, including support for CPU maximums, better DNS auto-configuration and support for username and passwords when pushing Docker Images.

Open Service Broker API: Creating a Cross-Platform Standard - Shannon Coen, Pivotal & Doug Davis, IBM
Integral to Cloud Foundry's success has been the ability for app developers to choose from a marketplace of 3rd party services and easily integrate them with their applications. Exposing services to developers in this way requires the service provider to implement a few API endpoints known collectively as the Service Broker API.

This powerful yet simple model has not gone unnoticed by the broader Cloud Native community. As a result, the CF Foundation has joined forces with other key players in the community to create the new Open Service Broker API project to enhance the API and foster adoption by other platforms, including Kubernetes. This industry wide project will enable service providers to offer their services to multiple platform marketplaces with a single integration, making support for it more compelling to service providers and accelerating the diversity of services available to app developers and ultimately increasing the velocity of innovation.

This talk will introduce the new Open Service Broker API project, its mission, members, and future plans.

Ops in the Time of Serverless Containerized Webscale - Bridget Kromhout, Pivotal
Living #opslife makes us keenly aware of the cavernous gap between lofty ideals and 3am reality. In a perfect world, everyone would be devopsing sans effort. In the real world, sharing operational responsibility is not as easy as giving developers production access, adding them to an oncall rotation, and saying “good luck! have fun!”

When incentives mean a feature team is concerned primarily with shipping and not operability, while site reliability is someone else’s concern, conflict results. We build in graceful degradation for decentralized systems but often neglect the (just-as-essential) human interactions. As the fractal complexity of our distributed systems grows, we need mindful practices that work with our tooling and effective tools that reinforce our desired culture.

SAP Hybris Smart Driving Showcase - Featured by Microservices and Cloud Foundry to Empower the Development Ecosystem [B] - Torsten Born, SAP
Cloud computing demonstrates, how to think beyond the idea of an unscalable infrastructure. Applying this idea to cars, the showcase SAP Hybris Smart Driving demonstrates the possibility to access additional range of functions. Increasing or decreasing horse power can for example impact the insurance costs. It utilizes SAP Hybris Revenue Cloud for subscription and pay-per-use billing. Hands-free is a must-have in cars, therefore voice recognition technology and digital assistant service are used to subscribe for additional range of functions.

Following the micro service architecture and API-first pattern in our applications like SAP Hybris Revenue Cloud, customers, partners and developers can easily integrate but also reinvent their business model. The necessary scalability and flexibility is provided by SAP Cloud Platform and Cloud Foundry. During the presentation we will demonstrate a smart driving adventure in virtual reality and explaining the architecture behind the scene. The architectural concept provides insights, on how integration and extensibility concepts could look like. Discussion on the blueprint are welcome.

Write Once, Earn Anywhere – Monetizing Enterprise APIs with Cloud Foundry - Robert Land & Elijah Martinez, SAP
Microservices are frequently touted as “SOA done right”. Cloud Foundry and microservice architectures are ideally suited for one another, with Cloud Foundry handling underlying issues such as scaling, failover, load balancing, etc. When coupled with a strong API layer, true continuous software delivery becomes a reality for developers. This architecture is ideal for applying API management which provides usage monitoring, service discovery and monetization. Additionally businesses and application developers increasingly rely on external APIs for quick and efficient enhancement of their core data and business processes, whether on premise or in the cloud.

SAP as a world leader in business data, touching over $16 Trillion of consumer purchases globally, has committed to moving its business into the cloud, supporting API development and choosing Cloud Foundry as its strategic architecture for its Cloud Platform. Come discover how you can leverage this new paradigm of data openness to tap into Enterprise APIs, and how API Management enables developers to quickly and easily monetize software built on these APIs.

Overengineering: Causes, Symptoms and Treatment - Alex Sologub, Altoros
If your are using Cloud Foundry, you are most obviously into the microservices architecture and cloud-native app development approach. These are definitely best practices in modern application development, but too much of a good thing is good for nothing. Overuse of these principles may lead to overengineering, when an application is split into too much microservices and, as such, gets hard to maintain and support. In this presentation, Alex will talk about how far overuse of the microservices concept can go, what issues exist and how these issues can be avoided.

CF Serverless: CloudFoundry as a Platform for Serverless Computing [I] - Nima Kaviani & Michael Maximilien, IBM
As CloudFoundry matures to become the de-facto platform for enterprise cloud computing, it is no surprise that various types of computing services need to be supported. Server-less computing is a new name for various previous concepts or technologies, e.g. functors, functional programming. In this model of computing, applications are written as a series of small functions with clear input and output and can be executed in the cloud on demand. The difference between this approach and eg. micro-services is that the backend part only executes when invoked. In this talk we compare and contrast possible approaches to make CF a first class platform for server-less computing. We explore retrofitting the current CF app push model, leverage open source server less platforms like OpenWhisk, and investigate how the CF runtime (Diego) could be improved to support server less apps as on-off tasks.

Creating a Smart and Serverless Cat Detection System with IoT and Image Recognition APIs - Linda Nichols, Emerging Technology Advisors
Artificial Intelligence (AI) can be the difference between applications that just perform tasks and applications that seem truly intelligent and intuitive to humans. With cloud platforms like IBM Bluemix and Amazon Web Services, AI is as accessible as ever to developers through provided and hosted APIs. These cloud platforms also allow simplify the process of using AI with other powerful cloud services such as IoT, big data, messaging, and serverless functions.

Hardware systems are unique in that they are able to collect real-time data from their environments with various sensors. These systems can become even more powerful and perceptive when this data can be rapidly analyzed with machine learning models. A basic detection system will send an alert when it detects any kind of motion near the sensor, but an intelligent system “knows” what the detected object is. Using image recognition, it can classify the moving object as human and even make a trained guess at what emotion that human was feeling at the moment it was detected.

In this talk, Linda Nichols will describe how a real-life use-case (pets jumping on the kitchen counters) evolved from a simple motion detector to an intelligent and inexpensive cat detection system. Using IBM Watson IoT Platform and Node.js, she was able to connect a Raspberry Pi with IBM Bluemix OpenWhisk functions and IBM Watson image recognition APIs. She will demonstrate how her system can quickly and reliably notify owners when it detects a cat, but ignore other categories of moving objects. She will also discuss how she was able to reduce the complexity of the system architecture and the amount of static code stored on the Raspberry Pi by using “serverless” IBM Bluemix OpenWhisk functions.

Coming Soon to a Cloud Near You: Multiple Buildpack Support - Keaty Gross & Stephen Levine, Pivotal
"The Buildpacks Team just wrapped work on multiple buildpack support and we want to share the good news!
This latest Cloud Foundry feature allows applications to leverage a mixture of different technologies in one `push`, permitting strategic use of multiple languages in one app or app-embedded additional processes. This will come as welcome news to users interested in building apps of this type in the future, or to users who already have but had to switch to Docker containers or custom buildpacks to achieve these ends.
Attend this talk if you’d like to learn more about what multi-buildpacks do under the hood, how they differ from their predecessor the multi-buildpack buildpack, or where this feature might come in handy in the future. As an added bonus for the uninitiated, we’ll even provide a bit of insight into what exactly happens when you `cf push`. Appropriate for all experience levels."

BOSH Splitter - Chris Weibel, Stark & Wayne & Balajee Nagarajan, GE Digital
As Cloud Foundry operators, we want to provide a seamless experience to our end-users, while keeping Cloud Foundry itself up to date and scaled appropriately. While BOSH is a powerful tool for managing such complexity, those deployments can become unwieldy. Large deployments that involve hundreds, or even thousands of instances run into problems of scale, especially during upgrades.

Drawing on their experience keeping GE's Cloud Foundry - based Predix platform running and up to date, BOSH Splitter was created - a tool that helps split large-scale deployments into easier to manage bites. This tool allows you to split out a BOSH job in an existing deployment into its own manifest, without having to manage multiple deployment repos for the same environment. For example: In a large production environment, you might have 500 or more servers, most of these being runners or cells split across a few availability zones. These can be easily split out into their own deployment manifests and maintained while continuing to leverage your existing templates. You can then schedule your upgrade windows one availability zone at a time if desired, or implement whatever paradigm befits your organization.

Learn how Balajee, Chris and the rest of the team have successfully used BOSH Splitter to make Diego Cell stemcell upgrades much more bearable, and how you can use it in your own large-scale deployments today.

Monitoring Cloud Foundry: Get on TOP of Your Cloud Foundry Foundations - Kurt Kellner, ECS Team
Have you ever had to answer the question “what is happening on my foundation right now?” As a foundation operator, this is a common question. The open-source “top” plugin for the cf CLI can be a valuable tool in helping track down issues.

The “top” plugin is unlike most cf plugins which typically run using various command-line arguments, output information to the terminal and then exit. Instead, when you run “cf top” on the command-line, it will initialize a text-based interface that will allow user interaction with the screen. It works much like
the UNIX top command.

This talk will demonstrate the “top” plugin, walk through many of its features describing various use-cases where top saved valuable time in diagnosing problems. In addition to the functionality of top, a discussion of how this plugin was written and how it works under the covers.

Burning Down The House: How to Plan for and Deal with Disaster Recovery in CF - Jatin Naik & Therese Stowell, Pivotal
People make mistakes. Hardware fails. Hurricanes, volcanoes, acts of God. You’ve installed Cloud Foundry and are running 1000 mission-critical apps. You’re the operator and the health of CF is on your head, how do you sleep at night?
Backups? But.. is backup an outdated term in a cloud native world? What does it mean to back up Cloud Foundry? What components are involved? What about data services?
In this talk Therese and Jatin will dig into CF internals to map out what’s required to make reliable backups of Cloud Foundry and app data. They will talk through the challenges of engineering a robust b+r solution that works across IaaSs. They will look at different tools and approaches in use now, and discuss issues like downtime and consistency across multiple components. Finally they will present their proposed BOSH-based framework for backup and recovery plus other potential solutions, from disk imaging to event streams, while considering potential modifications to CF to make it more backup-able.

Keynote: Mendix Roundtable: Cloud Foundry and Low-Code: The Whole is Greater than the Sum of its Parts
Although Cloud Foundry has greatly simplified application deployment and management, developing cloud-native apps is still challenging and time-consuming. But what if you applied the same principles of abstraction and automation that have streamlined deploying applications to building them?

Enter low-code platforms, which Forrester defines as "platforms that enable rapid application delivery with a minimum of hand-coding, and quick setup and deployment.” With the market surging to an expected $15 billion by 2020, low-code platforms are being adopted by enterprise IT organizations looking to speed innovation and business transformation.

In this panel, several leading organizations will share how they’re leveraging low-code platforms on Cloud Foundry to deliver web and mobile applications at unprecedented speed and scale. See how low-code enables a much broader range of users to build enterprise-grade applications, helping IT to close the capacity gap while maintaining control. In addition, discover how the combination of low-code and Cloud Foundry speeds each stage of the app lifecycle (ideate, develop, test, deploy and operate) to enable continuous innovation).

Quickly Build Spring Boot Applications to Consume Public Cloud Services [I] - Colin Stevenson & Prasad Bopardikar, Pivotal
We all know Cloud Foundry is a great platform for cloud native applications. However, what happens when you’re building an app that leverages services from public cloud providers such as Microsoft and Google? Service brokers make it easy to spin up service instances and bind to apps. What about the actual code itself?

Developers leverage the popular Spring Boot framework to quickly build Java apps to deploy to Cloud Foundry. The Spring Boot Starters and Auto-Configuration eliminate the need to write boilerplate code to consume some services, but not all.

We’ve decided to give you a head start. This session is about extending the Spring framework. We’ll use examples from our recent work with Microsoft Azure and Google Cloud Platform services. As more services become available, developers will want to consume these on Cloud Foundry. Extend Spring to make it easier for developers to consume those backing services!

Monitoring Node.js Microservices on CloudFoundry with Open Source Tools and a Shoestring Budget [I] - Tony Erwin, IBM
While microservice architectures offer lots of great benefits, there’s also a downside. Perhaps most notably, there is an increased complexity in monitoring the overall reliability and performance of the system. In addition, when problems are identified, finding a root cause can be a challenge. To ease these pains in managing the IBM Bluemix UI (made up of more than twenty microservices running on CloudFoundry), we’ve built a lightweight system using Node.js and other opensource tools to capture key metrics for all microservices (such as memory usage, CPU usage, speed and response codes for all inbound/outbound requests, etc.). In this approach, each microservice publishes lightweight messages (using MQTT) for all measurable events while a separate monitoring microservice subscribes to these messages. When the monitoring microservice receives a message, it stores the data in a time series DB (InfluxDB) and sends notifications if thresholds are violated. Once the data is stored, it can be visualized in Grafana to identify trends and bottlenecks. Tony Erwin will discuss the details of the Node.js implementation, real-world examples of how this system has been used to keep the Bluemix UI running smoothly without spending a lot of money, and how it’s acted as a “canary” to find problems in non-UI subsystems before the relevant teams even knew there was an issue!

BOSH CLI v2: the evolution of the BOSH command line interface - Shatarupa Nandi & Danny Berger, Pivotal
BOSH operators spend an enormous amount of time using the bosh command line interface (CLI). Any interaction with BOSH or the clusters it manages, is essentially an invocation of the CLI with some parameters. While the current Ruby-based CLI has served the community well, it suffered from many shortcomings. Some important ones are:
- It is slow and difficult to install (especially on Windows)
- It lacked a consistent user experience when using the commands
Additionally, BOSH init (replacement for micro BOSH) introduced it's own CLI.

To remedy these issues and streamline the BOSH operator's experience, the BOSH team has created a new, Golang-based, CLI which addresses existing feedback and:
- Adds enhancements to existing commands
- Encourages more secure usage patterns
- Reduces the need for several different manifest generation tools
- Provides a Golang-based client to securely access the BOSH Director API

This talk will provide a complete overview of BOSH CLI v2, including discussions on how to migrate your environments and scripts to the next evolution of the CLI. It will also introduce the audience to 'bosh-deployment', the preferred way of installing the BOSH Director.

Bringing Google Customer Reliability Engineering to Cloud Foundry - Luke Stone, Google & Andrew Clay Shafer, Pivotal
Toward the end of 2016, Google announced Customer Reliability Engineering (CRE), an outward-facing branch of Site Reliability Engineers (SRE) to help bring Google-class operational excellence to customer applications running on Google Cloud Platform (GCP). GCP customers who are in the CRE program adhere to the principles and practices of SRE, starting with a joint review of application reliability that brings the same rigor Google applies to internal services.

Pivotal and Google Cloud are currently working through a CRE review to bring Pivotal Cloud Foundry into the CRE program. This session will give an overview of the work being done together and the benefits to be had for customers running PCF on GCP.

Pivotal Cloud Foundry is the first third-party platform GCP has collaborated with for CRE support, and together the goal is to have shared customers meet their service level objectives reliably, without anxiety, and without extraordinary effort.

Visualize and Analyze Network Traffic of BOSH-Releases in Real-Time [I] - Marco Voelz, SAP
With BOSH, you can deploy complex distributed systems like Cloud Foundry with ease. The difficulties start with day 2: If you are an operator, you need to gain a deep understanding how your system behaves, especially in error cases.

There are some methods to increase understanding of production system: A real-time visualization of a system's network traffic makes it easy to spot anomalies. Additional usage of a chaos-monkey can help you to verify your assumptions about the system's ability to cope with certain errors. You can gain more insights if you drill deeper in the raw network data.

In this talk, we show how we built a visualization and analysis tool for a netflix-like intuition engineering experience entirely from open-source components. By looking at a small example and a bigger Cloud Foundry installation, we discuss how both, visualization and deeper analysis can help us to get a better understanding of our system and discover new insights. And, of course, we use a few BOSH features to make our lives easier.

Distributed Tracing - Implementing Latency Analysis for microservices on Cloud Foundry - Reshmi Krishna, Pivotal
Microservices are great but the complexities associated with monolith have now been transferred into the microservices ecosystem. So when things go wrong especially in terms of latency, how do we troubleshoot them? How do we answer questions like how much time it took for the request? Which microservice is responsible for the delay? How can we better troubleshoot without searching through lines of logs? What about real time debugging? In this talk we learn about how we can better answer these questions and more with distributed tracing along with Metrics from Pivotal Cloud Foundry. We will also show a demo of how to implement Distributed Tracing in an existing application with Spring Cloud Sleuth, PCF Metrics and Zipkin. By the end, you should feel empowered to add distributed tracing into your own applications!

Unfortunately, you might not have a homogenous way to immediately commence backups of all data on all systems. A system is only a "production system" when operators know how to restore it after a disaster.

Fortunately, SHIELD is an open source standalone system that can perform backup and restore functions for a wide variety of pluggable data systems. SHIELD can be deployed with BOSH, and integrated to backup/restore both BOSH deployments and BOSH director itself. It has also been integrated with various Chef Habitat plans to provide backup/restore out of the box.

One of the pluggable storage systems is GCP's own object store.

Deploy the admin-ui as a CloudFoundry Application [B] - Michael Grifalconi, SAP
There are many applications that don’t exactly fit the 12-factor rules but it would still be useful to deploy them on Cloud Foundry.

SAP used the admin-ui project as a BOSH release to monitor the status of its Cloud Foundry deployments until it was considered an unnecessary effort to maintain a BOSH deployment for the specific use case. Unfortunately, admin-ui was not designed to be deployed as Cloud Foundry application.

The solution was to wrap the application in a way that allows the user to set all necessary configuration parameters in the manifest and deploy it on Cloud Foundry. Even if the talk will focus on the admin-ui, the procedure can be applied to any application which does not support injection of configuration parameters as environment variables like standard Cloud Foundry applications.

99 Problems But a Container Ain’t One: Forget Serverless, Let’s Talk Containerless Development [B] - Julian Friedman, IBM
It’s time to talk about Serverless. Cloud Foundry has always been an opinionated platform that *uses* containers but hides them from users. It famously popularised the motto “Here is my code, run it on the cloud for me, I do not care how”. Now, the Serverless buzzword has repopularised the idea of not caring about Operating Systems, Patching and Orchestration and “just pushing code”. So how is Cloud Foundry (and PaaS in general) different from Serverless? This talk argues that Serverless is an extreme example of an emerging trend towards *Containerless* development: that is, push code, let the platform take care of the low-value bits like containerisation, dependencies, scaling, monitoring and orchestration. Containerless, in 2017, fits in the sweet-spot with regards to Serverless than Containers did compared to PaaS in 2015 -- that is, it is far far easier to migrate existing apps and knowledge to Containerless technologies, like CF, than to Serverless, and that the next big trend in computing is to Containerless platforms, not Serverless.

Whether you are currently using Containers and interested in PaaS or Serverless, or if you are interested in Serverless but considering whether it is right for you and how Cloud Foundry can enable higher-level abstractions this talk is for you!

Configuring a More Secure BOSH [I] - Saman Alvi & Dale Wick, Pivotal
As BOSH evolves, grows, and improves, it allows you to focus on making your deployments more secure. The addition of config server allows you to generate, store, and update credentials easily and securely for your deployments. It also allows you to share credentials between deployments, as it is possible to have hundreds for all components to talk to each other. It will also help prevent poor credential choices, which can create security breaches. This talk will go into details about how config server works, how credential generation and storage is handled, and how you can use the reference implementation to choose your own credential generation and storage strategy.

Gulliver’s Travels In Cloud Foundry [I] - Kevin Rutten, Stark & Wayne
Cloud Foundry is full of Giants. Clouds of thousands of servers and millions of apps. Imagine you could type one command and get a tiny Cloud Foundry deployed on AWS with Pipelines, services like PostgreSQL and Redis, monitoring, and even automated backups. The CF-Tiny project looks at all the steps required to create and provision the many parts for a production quality Cloud Foundry.

In this presentation, Kevin will discuss the “CloudCow” project. CloudCow pulls together Terraform to stand up an AWS IaaS, scripts to generate and deploy all the pieces for a tiny Cloud Foundry with services, and provides a complete Concourse pipeline to allow you to experiment and upgrade your Cloud Foundry. When you can quickly build a production like Cloud Foundry as easily as you can boot a VirtualBox BOSH Lite, work with it, and tear it down or grow it into production.

Service Fabrik – Manage Enterprise-Grade Backing Services for an Enterprise-Grade Cloud Foundry [I] - Shashank Mohan Jain & Krishanu Biswas, SAP
Cloud Foundry is a great abstraction layer for developing Cloud-native applications. In order to develop applications, you will also need backing services for caching, messaging, persistence and so on, besides an application runtime. Redis, RabbitMQ, MongoDB, and Postgres are some examples of such backing services. So far, there has been no open source offering that will allow you to provision, and operate backing service instances for Cloud Foundry in an automated/managed way including backup & restore, updates/upgrades and more. SAP’s open source offering called “Service Fabrik” (https://github.com/SAP/service-fabrik-boshrelease), provides a well defined contract and framework to provision and operate services to close this gap. While it is the basis for SAP’s own service offerings, Service Fabrik allows to deploy services described by either BOSH releases or as Docker containers. In this session, we’ll show the basics of Service Fabrik, the features and functions the framework provides and how easy it is to integrate your own services into it.

Managing APIs and Contracts in a Microservices World Using Spring Cloud Contract [I] - Bjorn Boe, Pivotal
With the rise of microservices and the fall of the monolith, new challenges arise. The monolith that used to be contained in one large codebase have been split up and is being managed by multiple teams. These teams still depend on each other to deliver the final solution, but may not have exactly the same understanding of the APIs that tie the solution together. This situation leads to a lot of time being spent fixing integration problems late in the development cycle and complicates the ability to fully automate the software deployment lifecycle.

In this presentation, Bjorn will look at how Spring Cloud Contract can be used to address this problem. He will show how Spring Cloud Contract can be used to define consumer driven contracts that can be used as server stubs for the client and as unit tests for the server.

After this presentation, the audience will know how Spring Cloud Contract can be used to help them deliver successful microservices at scale.

There and Back Again: The BOSH Windows Story [I] - Matthew Horan & Natalie Arellano, Pivotal
Pivotal's Windows Experience team has been working hard to improve the Windows Operator Experience. The early days of Windows Diego cell installation involved a series of MSI installers, command line install generator utilities, and PowerShell scripts. Automation was difficult and error prone. We learned a lot from our experience in decomposing BOSH releases into their component parts, and distributing MSI installers. Just over a year ago, we embarked on an effort to port the BOSH agent to Windows. In this talk, we'll discuss what we learned when porting the BOSH agent to Windows, and the choices we made when designing the interface for Windows BOSH releases. We'll also discuss the benefits we found in moving to BOSH, instead of maintaining an alternative installation mechanism like MSI installers.

OCI Images for Droplets and Buildpacks [B] - Julz Friedman, IBM
The CF buildpacks workflow allows app developers to focus on the business logic of their code rather than the operational concerns of the OS that runs their code. At the same time, CF operators need confidence that all the code running in their org has been patched for the latest vulnerabilities. However, the current workflow does not currently support dynamically linked compiled languages well. This makes it very difficult to support apps written in C, haskell, et.al.; and also leaves us with a large difficult-to-protect surface area in our rootfs. We explore a solution to this problem using the new OCI container image specification, and demonstrate how this could result in a more flexible, more secure platform that supports better interoperability with the rest of the container ecosystem. For example, what if you could download your droplet and run it on any OCI container manager?

The OCI Image Spec standard gives Cloud Foundry an opportunity to unify the container and buildpack workflows, and to embrace open standards throughout the stack. An OCI Image can be used both to describe a container created using a tool such as a Dockerfile and a container created from a Cloud Foundry buildpack. Using OCI images as a primitive throughout the stack lets us revisit some of the assumptions in the platform and enables a number of new features. This talk motivates this idea and talks about our progress towards making it happen!

Apps Need Data, Redux: The untold true(-ish) story of one developer’s search for a complete microservices platform - Dormain Drewitz & Cornelia Davis, Pivotal

Meet Jamie. Her team is building a new feature for a human resources application. It's going to make vacation requests so much more fun - almost as fun as the vacation itself!

But there's just one problem.

That HR application is a monolith. So Jamie sets out to figure out how she can build her service as a microservice. She thinks about managing the APIs that the monolith will use. She thinks about the persistence layer her application will need. She thinks about how she will secure her application. She thinks about how she will manage performance - oh the spikes of traffic before major holiday weekends!

You can probably guess where Jamie found such a platform that would support all her requirements (hint: Spring Boot, Spring Cloud, and Cloud Foundry). But in this talk, Dormain Drewitz and Cornelia Daviswill take you through the surprising twists and turns of how she got there. After all, Spring Boot makes it easy to make stand-alone Spring applications and Spring Cloud provides the scaffolding to coordinate distributed Boot apps, but what about API management? Performance monitoring? Persistence? It takes an ecosystem to complete a microservices platform.

This is especially true if the source system is a traditional RDBMS with complicated relationships between tables. Most of the time, traditional ETL processes are implemented with batch, monolithic, and tightly coupled approaches. As the result, traditional ETL processes are often considered fragile, hard to maintain, not easy to tune, and often introduce high data latency between source and destination systems. In this session, Anupama Pradhan and Jeff Cherng will cover how to modernize traditional RDBMS ETL processes to cloud-native event driven microservices pipelines by using Cloud Foundry, Spring Cloud Stream, and RabbitMQ/Kafka. The pipelines can handle high volume data sets and complex database queries, yet with low data latency between the source RDBMS and destination data store. In addition, the design is highly tunable and scalable. The session will also cover analysis of performance metrics based on implementations of real world use cases.

A Smooth Path to Cloud Foundry on Containers [B] - Jan von Löwenstein, SAP
Cloud Foundry (CF) has been running apps in containers from the beginning. However, CF itself is deployed with BOSH on virtual machines. At the same time, we see more and more
services outside of CF being deployed on container platforms, such as Mesos or Kubernetes.

We love BOSH, but apparently, container schedulers have advantages over VMs.
How do you deploy a CF based product with additional services on Kubernetes?
Others want to take BOSH out of the equation.
We want to preserve it.
Thus, we take a more evolutionary than revolutionary approach.

In this talk, we show how to deploy regular BOSH releases without modifications using a naive Kubernetes CPI https://github.com/SAP/bosh-kubernetes-cpi-release. We discuss the obstacles we encountered on the way and the current limitations of the CPI. Furthermore, we would like to start a discussion about how to evolve BOSH to overcome some of the current limitations and make container platforms just another deployment choice.

Cloud Foundry and IaaS Native Capabilities: How Deep Should You Go? - Sean McKenna, Microsoft & Colin Stevenson, Pivotal
One of the key values of Cloud Foundry is that it provides a clean abstraction over the underlying infrastructure, making it easy to move between the private and public cloud and between public cloud providers. However, most cloud vendors today provide 1st party services that can replace or extend components of Cloud Foundry, reducing costs or enabling additional functionality. This presents a quandary: how can you strike a balance between maintaining a cloud-agnostic environment and taking advantage of best-of-breed services from the provider hosting that environment.

In this session, Sean and Colin will cover the tradeoffs to consider. As a case study, they'll discuss best practices learned from customers using Cloud Foundry on Microsoft Azure.

Building Security Frameworks Into Your CI/CD Pipelines [I] - Nathan Gibson & David Brock, Allstate Insurance
Allstate is a company that puts extreme value in the trust that is given by their customers. This means taking all measures available to ensure that all customer information is protected. In addition, being in the insurance industry puts them under a significant amount of regulatory compliance requirements. Safeguarding this trust continues to become challenging in the world today where traditional security controls are no longer effective against the advanced persistent threats that organizations face.

In this session, Allstate will discuss the approach that we have taken to bring security to the right levels to ensure we protect our customer’s assets. It starts with a “secure by design” approach that is integrated into our extreme agile practices across the multiple layers of our technology stack.

We leverage a natively securely architecture for our platform infrastructure. Cloud Foundry provides us with unprecedented capabilities in providing some native security attributes and secure operational practices for all applications hosted. We leverage tools to continuously audit the infrastructure, supplementing the practices that the open source community do to secure and harden the platform.

We add another layer of continuous audit by integrating static and dynamic code analysis into our continuous integration pipelines. Cloud Foundry provides us with a platform that allows us to direct our assets and inspection to a well scoped threat area for hosted apps. In addition, it provides us with the ability to consistently and reliably do security related analysis, and enables us to confidently deploy to production knowing that our risk profiles do not change across environment.

Our approach of “secure by design” and “continuous audit” across all layers, coupled with the capabilities that Cloud Foundry provides, allows us to confidently assure our customers that they are in good hands.

Panel: The Microservices Stack: Are We There Yet? What’s Missing? - moderated by Dormain Drewitz, Pivotal
Every so often, a new computing paradigm emerges. It causes ripple effects across many layers of technology. New categories of software and tools are invented. When the dust settles, a new stack has emerged.

Spring Cloud Services stormed onto the scene in 2015. Cloud Foundry has since proven to be the ideal place to run these cloud-native Java apps. But has the dust fully settled? Microservices change the requirements for data, messaging, monitoring, API management, and more. Are vendors ready to support these requirements? How does the Cloud Foundry platform help with this? What remains an unsolved challenge?

This panel brings together: Kenny Bastani from a Spring developer perspective, Cornelia Davis and her work on the platform's data layer requirements, Ed Anuff from an API management perspective, and Alex Williams as an industry observer view. Moderated by Dormain Drewitz, this panel will debate what's real and what's not when it comes to the emerging microservices stack.

The Long and Winding Road to Application Logging [A] - Istvan Zoltan Ballok, SAP
This talk is about our long journey towards a robust and scalable application log ingestion and processing pipeline for SAP Hana Cloud Platform. While we initially paved the way leveraging the streaming feature based on user provided services, it soon became clear that it lacked some usability features. We then decided to switch gears and moved to the Loggregator Firehose, which made life easier for application developers, but required additional effort on our end, especially in large-scale production environments. The lessons we learned (the hard way) on that leg finally convinced us to take a different road again. Next is SLEEVE, a brokered log forwarding service, with features such as quotas and burst limits. Best part is: We plan to make open source.

It's Perfectly OK to Use Docker Within Service Brokers [I] - Dr. Nic Williams, Stark & Wayne
What are the basic requirements for a Service Broker? Are there any rules that prevent me from making the job as simple as possible and wrapping service instances in Docker containers?

In short, the minimal requirements for a service broker are: Implement the Broker API; Bindings provide connection details that work; Data is stored to a persistent volume; and Security patches can be rolled out.

It turns out that creating Service Brokers is a lot easier with Docker. I’m not even sure what the next easiest nor next best option is.

In this session we will look at getting started with https://github.com/cloudfoundry-community/docker-boshrelease to create and deploy a new service broker with your own Docker images. We’ll then look at options for scaling your system and providing backup/recovery for all service instances.

Panel: Securing Cloud Native Applications [B] - moderated by Kamala Dasika, Pivotal
The emphasis on continual, incremental, and rapid delivery of software has inspired a reinvention of the the way apps are built, deployed, and managed. These new methods are rapidly gaining popularity, and IT organizations are evaluating how this impacts their overall security posture. The complex controls that shape traditional enterprise processes require the security community to work together and reason about them.

This session rounds up diverse perspectives from the Cloud Foundry ecosystem on topics such as
1. Security concerns at different layers of the technology stack
2. Bringing time tested security design patterns into a Cloud Native environment
3. The right combination of trade-offs and optimizations to make security teams more agile

Building a Testing Framework in NodeJS and ReactJS for Cloud Foundry Evergreen Testing [A] - Rajesh Jain & Brian Byers, Pivotal
Smolder is testing framework written in NodeJS and ReactJS for checking the health endpoint of all the apps running on Cloud Foundry. The health tests are executed by Concourse pipelines. Apps can implement their own health endpoint and the Radiator Dashboard pulls the health data using Websockets to show the current status. Concourse pipelines are driven either on a CF Event, like buildpack update or stemcell or service update or periodically every few minutes. Everyone needs to know the health of apps running on CF when something changes underneath, and this testing framework provides the answers. We are using this in Ford and other CF customers.

Enhancing Cloud Foundry Application Security with Vault - Seth Vargo, HashiCorp
Vault is a popular open source tool for managing application secrets at scale, and it uses an innovative approach to secret acquisition and managing the lifecycle of credentials over time. This approach is not without tradeoffs, since it often goes against common architectures, and Cloud Foundry is no exception.

Unlike traditional secret acquisition which is just a single request, Vault requires a regular updates from the application. This is very akin to a DHCP lease or a TTL. If an application dies or is restarted, it requests new credentials, and it renews those credentials over time. Unused credentials are automatically revoked, reducing the secret sprawl and decreasing the attack surface. Additionally, each instance of an application receives a different credential; if an attacker is able to compromise one application, it's easy to revoke a single credential without causing application downtime.

Seth will discuss the architecture of the Cloud Foundry Vault integration, exploring technical challenges exposed by both Vault's own architecture and design decisions in Cloud Foundry in implementing the Cloud Foundry Vault broker, which controls the distribution of secrets to applications running under Cloud Foundry.
