Stranger Danger: Addressing Vulnerable CF Application Dependencies [B] - Guy Podjarny, CEO, Snyk
Open source packages are an incredible productivity boost, but also represent an undeniable risk. Such packages often include severe vulnerabilities, easily discovered and exploited by attackers. Keeping up-to-date on Cloud Foundry protects you from kernel and operating system vulnerabilities, but what about your application’s dependencies, pulled from npm, Maven, RubyGems and more?

This talk will help you understand the risk and how to protect your application from vulnerable packages. We’ll demonstrate real world exploits on a live CF application, demonstrating their impact. We’ll then explain the steps you should put in place to address these vulnerabilities, and how to best implement them in your dev process and CF environment.

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.

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.

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.

Deployment Strategies for Cloud Applications: Intel Case Study - Dan Crook, Intel
Enabling application development through PaaS capabilities is a key capability in accelerating cloud adoption. In this session, we will provide an overview of how to design applications for the cloud and provide lessons learned from Intel IT’s internal cloud deployment which has 1400+ applications deployed in production. The session will cover architecture design decisions, key things to consider for integration with existing applications, design patterns, and best practices for deploying cloud aware applications and supporting business strategy for modern application development (cloud, mobile/multi-OS, application security, and improved user experience). We will share our experience using Cloud Foundry and review example applications.
