Cloud Foundry Summit Europe 2016

The largest multi-cloud event in Europe

The shift to a multi-cloud environment is happening faster than any other enterprise technology shift in history. Cloud Foundry Summit Europe is where organisations of all sizes will meet to define their multi-cloud strategies.

Join 600+ developers and operators

If you care about running applications in a multi-cloud environment or are interested in taking containers to production, this is the conference for you. This 3-day event offers education for the development of microservices in a continuous delivery environment – from coding to production – in our full-day training.

It’s the only place to meet the global Cloud Foundry developer community and discuss the roadmap for the fastest-growing cloud-native platform. Join hundreds of developers, operators, and business leaders at Cloud Foundry Summit Europe to help your company deliver apps faster than ever before.

The Cloud Foundry Summit Europe is open to anyone to attend, though it is geared towards the following people in the Cloud Foundry community: Application Developers, IT Operations, Technical Management, Line-of-Business (LOB) Leadership, Service Providers and other Cloud Foundry Contributors.

Training courses

They will also look at how to effectively work with Cloud Foundry in your organisation.

This training is targeted at people with little or no Cloud Foundry experience but some experience delivering web-based applications. If you’re curious to learn how Cloud Foundry can help you focus on development and innovation, rather than infrastructure plumbing, this is the right course for you.

Course 2 – Microservices on Cloud Foundry: Going Cloud Native

This course is designed to give its students a hands-on experience of designing applications for Cloud Foundry. You will be given the overview of Cloud Foundry and its tools from the point of view of an application developer and how to architect polyglot applications for deployment and scaling in the cloud.

This training is targeted at developers with little hands-on Cloud Foundry experience and those who have an interest in deploying innovative, microservice-based systems into the cloud.
