To Kill a Monolith: Slaying the Demons of a Monolith with Node.js Microservices on CloudFoundry - 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!

Cloud Foundry Diego Update - Eric Malm, Pivotal
Do you love how simple and easy it is to push your application to Cloud Foundry but want to know what really 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 managing even the largest CF deployments. In this talk, the project lead for the Diego team will survey how the Diego components interact inside of CF to run application instances and tasks and then dive into how those interactions have evolved over the past year to improve system stability, security, and scale. This talk will also review how recent work in Diego supports powerful platform features such as isolation segments, zero-downtime application updates, and application-identity TLS certificates, how to use tooling such as the CF Diego Operator Toolkit ("cfdot") to inspect the app instances and CF components in a deployment, and other features that the core Cloud Foundry teams are working on or considering for development today.

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

What's Happening in CF-Extensions - Michael (dr. max) Maximilien, IBM
"As CloudFoundry gains more mainstream acceptance as the one stop shop Cloud Operating System for enterprises, the evolution of the platform is shifting away from re-engineering, or innovating on core components, to rather investing in enabling a vibrant ecosystem of extensions. With that aim, late in 2016, the Program Committee Council (PMC) which controls the direction of the platform, voted to create a separate, distinct, committee responsible to seeing the evolution of all extensions in CloudFoundry: called the CF-Extensions PMC with Michael Maximilien (aka Dr.Max) of IBM as its first leader.

In this talk Dr.Max will provide a summary (including statistics) of what has happened in the CF-Extensions PMC in 2017, including technical summary of the hot new projects, and those that are about to graduate from incubation to core projects. Additionally, Dr.Max will unveil the CF-Extensions PMC project on GitHub that help summarize the ever growing current pipeline of proposed and incubating projects and where each is in the process. Finally, looking forward to 2018, Dr.Max will also share where he and the community (those voicing their opinions) would like to see the platform evolve towards."

Managing the Complexity of Microservices Deployments - Prithpal Bhogill, Google & Kenny Bastini, Pivotal
The transition to microservices can be an exciting change of pace for many developers. But for organizations, the path to success with microservices is not without embracing a major cultural shift in the process of how companies build and deliver software.

To rapidly deliver microservices to production, organizations are turning to infrastructure automation provided by a cloud-native platform, like Cloud Foundry. With a platform in place, every microservice team will have what they need to create a CI/CD pipeline that safely delivers applications to a production environment. The final ingredient for success is knowing the right patterns for connecting microservices together over HTTP using REST APIs.

In this session, Kenny Bastani from Pivotal and Prithpal Bhogill from Apigee will dive into a reference architecture that demonstrates the patterns and practices for securely connecting microservices together.

This session will cover:

> The basics for building cloud-native applications as microservices on Pivotal Cloud Foundry using Spring Boot and Spring Cloud Services
> The patterns and practices that are enabling small autonomous microservice teams to provision backing services for their applications
> How to securely expose microservices over HTTP using Apigee Edge for PCF
> How to ensure that APIs are readily and securely consumable by application developers
> How to get instant, end-to-end visibility into the performance and adoption of your API program
> How to thrive in the API economy by leveraging microservices and cloud-native application architectures

Adding Sidecars to Cloud Foundry - Gabriel Rosenhouse & Angela Chin, Pivotal
Do your developers want service discovery, client-side load-balancing and mutual TLS security in your polyglot microservices but don't want to code all of that themselves? Then you may be interested in using a Sidecar. Sidecars are a new model for providing modern "glue" features to your microservice constellation, using a mesh of separate process running alongside your apps.

In recent months, Cloud Foundry community members have been investigating how to integrate such systems into CF.

This talk will introduce sidecar systems, show what benefits they provide to your apps, and illustrate how they can be integrated into Cloud Foundry.

Distributed Service Bundles for Cloud Foundry - Krishanu Biswas, SAP
Distributed Service Bundle is a mechanism to define a group of services whose lifecycle and operations are controlled as a single unit. This means parts of the bundle are deployed, un-deployed, updated, operated and monitored together. Cloud Foundry provides well-defined model for application to service communication via the service binding. While this model works well for majority of the use cases, there are use cases where a managed service needs to communicate with other managed services. For example – connecting the Jobs in a managed Spark to Topics in a managed Kafka. Cloud Foundry doesn’t inherently have a notion of service to service binding. To address the above scenarios we need a way to deploy services together with dependencies injected via the environment variables similar to the way CF applications use the VCAP environment variables. In this session, we will explain the need for distributed service bundles and show how such a distributed bundle can be realised via a generic implementation of Cloud Foundry Service Broker.

The New Way to BOSH Deploy - Urvashi Reddy, Pivotal
Before BOSH 2.0, curating deployments required a great deal of orchestration from experienced users of BOSH. Often this was in the form of complex and fragile manifest generation scripts. BOSH 2.0 introduced a simple yet powerful feature for deploying: operations files. In this talk, we will take a deep dive into how to use operations files effectively and utilize them to create a variety of BOSH deployments with ease. Attendees will gain insight on best practices for authoring ops-files, as well as how they fit into a typical deployment workflow.

Landscape Gardener: Keep n CF Landscapes Blooming Continuously - Andreas Heix & Martin Schröder, SAP
It's not an easy task to keep one CF landscape up and updated all the time. Doing this with several landscapes with varying BOMs (bill of material) on different IaaS in parallel does not make it easier. In this session, Martin and Andreas will give an overview on how they organize as a multinational, 3-time-zone team of landscape gardeners trying to keep the landscapes blooming. They will share details on the collaboration with the development organizations. Judge for yourself where this fits your idea of "DevOps" or "SRE". A larger section will be dedicated to the alerting and monitoring approach which focus on the customers' scenarios as main health indicator. Not all flowers bloom and thrive all the time –Andreas and Martin will also share some of the challenges they have with their own stuff and also with the concepts of CloudFoundry.

Transforming the Retail Experience with Cloud Foundry and Machine Learning - Michael Goddard & Scott Truitt, Pivotal

A superior customer experience is now a competitive advantage, as Amazon so deftly demonstrates through its effective combination of software and data.  We explore how traditional retailers can thrive in this new landscape by delivering a more compelling, personalized experience for their customers.

Starting with personas "modern customer" and "clothing retailer", we demo a microservices-based experimental solution which combines Cloud Foundry, Spring Boot, Spring Cloud Dataflow, cloud-based machine learning, and a mobile app.

The result: better engage with the customer, understand her, and deliver compelling offers that retain her loyalty.

Distributed Tracing of Microservices - Neil Stevenson, Hazelcast
Microservices are generally perceived as a better application style than monolithic code, and
certainly this is a style that sits nicely within Cloud Foundry.

However, it’s not all good news. One of the drawbacks to such decomposition is it can be
very difficult to identify bottlenecks.

In this presentation, Neil will show how it’s easy this can solved for Spring Boot users. A few
beans and dependencies can activate tracing, and with Hazelcast as a service, trace information
can be centrally captured from to a fault-tolerant scalable in-memory repository.

Trace analysis can then be distributed across multiple service instances, without the performance bottleneck of a unclustered disk based resource.

Cloud Foundry AutoScaler Service: Features, Design and Roadmap - Ying Liu, IBM
Auto-Scaling helps you ensure the optimized number of application instances available to handle your workload so as to maintain the service quality and optimize the usage of your cloud resource for cost savings.

Cloud Foundry AutoScaler service is a Cloud Foundry incubation project that provides application auto-scaling capability as a cloud foundry service. This project was started one year ago and is now ready for trial in your Cloud Foundry deployment. In this talk, we will firstly have an overview of the features we have right now for both dynamic scaling and scheduled scaling, and then give a walk through of how to deploy the service with BOSH as well as deploy the service as Cloud Foundry applications. We will also show how to define scaling policy and enable auto-scaling by simply create and bind the service to your application. The second part of the talk with focus on the design of the several micro services that AutoScaler service consist of. We will introduce how the micro-services interact with each other and with other subsystems of Cloud Foundry. We will also address the reliability, scalability and security aspects of the design. The last part of the talk will discuss the upcoming features that the team are actively working on and exploring.

After this talk, the attendees will know the key concepts of auto-scaling, and being able to deploy, operate and use the AutoScaler service in a Cloud Foundry environment.

Managing Distributed Cloud Native Applications Made Easy - Nikolay Valchev, SAP
From an application lifecycle management perspective, the basic deployment unit, the "CF-app", is not sufficiently equipped with metadata. Thus, people are encoding ID, version and even blue/green deployment status directly into the CF-app-name. Service instances must be created, updated and bound in alignment with the app lifecycle. Routes must be created and (re-)mapped. Dependencies to other apps must be written into environment variables. To achieve all of this, each continuous deployment and release management implementation invents its own script code world to automate application lifecycle operations.

This talk introduces the audience to the challenges of managing distributed cloud native applications with cross-app and service dependencies and need for deployment-specific configuration. The presenters show a service, based on a declarative application model, capable to orchestrate complex deployment processes.

It is demonstrated via concrete examples how this service, positioned as an extension to the platform, brings important added value in the application lifecycle management area and provides the foundation for further innovations.

Hell Freezes Over: The New Reality of Open Cloud Services and the OSBAPI - Josh McKenty, Pivotal

There are many options when it comes to choosing a cloud platform. How do you know you picked the right one? Each has it's own advantages. What if you want to use more than one? As many of us know, Cloud Foundry provides this multi-cloud portability.

But what about services? There are so many available services and like Pokemon, you want to catch, err use, them all. How do we bring portability to cloud services across industries and across vendors?

In his presentation, Josh will talk about the impact of the Open Service Broker API project. The project provides a simple way to deliver services on cloud native platforms. Cloud Foundry, and Kubernetes are initial adopters. Contributors include individuals from Pivotal, IBM, Google, RedHat, and more.

Burning Down the House: How to Plan for and Deal with Disaster Recovery in CF - Therese Stowell & Henry Stanley, 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 Henry 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.

Secure Your Cloud with the IPsec BOSH Release - Stefan Lay, SAP
Customers using your cloud need to have trust that their data is safe. This is especially true for enterprises running critical businesses on top of Cloud Foundry. Even if communication from the client to the router or load-balancer is secured, the traffic inside Cloud Foundry and the connections to backing services are unencrypted by default. On a public cloud code of different customers runs on the same resources. Malicious developers could use a security hole to break out of their application or staging containers and sniff network traffic containing packets of other customers.

We therefore use IPsec in order to provide transport level encryption. We will give a brief introduction to IPsec and the IPsec BOSH release. We then show how we use it to secure traffic from Cloud Foundry to a backing service which provides connections to the SAP systems at the customer site.

Bottom Up Enterprise Transformation - Kyle Campos, CSAA Insurance
Many of us have heard the stories of successful Cloud Foundry journeys in enterprises that all begin at the top with a strong sense of shared commitment and vision. These stories can be met with equal measure of appreciation and jealousy by some of us as we feel that it's not exactly a realistic approach in our particular enterprise. This is a different kind of story with different origins, a story of a successful enterprise Cloud Foundry journey with a more complicated path filled with roadblocks, challenge and disbelief. When confronted with shared disbelief like "the world you describe doesn't exist" sometimes the only way to make believers is to build the "fantasy" and let the work speak for itself. Our DevOps transformation and PCF platform leader, Kyle Campos, will share this CSAA Insurance enterprise journey, how we turned skeptics into believers and how we gathered buy in through the doing.

Embracing OCI and CNI Open Container Standards Between Garden & Friends - George Lestaris & Gabriel Rosenhouse, Pivotal, & Konstantinos Karampogias, Swisscom
Cloud Foundry supports a rich ecosystem of plugins and extension points at various levels of the stack. This modularity enables rapid development and deployment of new features. Garden-runC, the Linux container engine used by Cloud Foundry, adopted this kind of modular philosophy by introducing new exciting forms of extensibility in its core.

In this talk, members of three core engineering teams (Garden, GrootFS, and Container Networking) will introduce the APIs that enable pluggable filesystems and networking stacks, including support for the industry-standard Open Container Initiative (OCI) image format and the Container Networking Interface (CNI) specification. With these extension points, Cloud Foundry users and operators gain access to a rapidly-growing ecosystem of 3rd party features which can enable new use cases for the platform.

CF + Kubo: Choosing the Right Platform for the Job - Meaghan Kjelland, Google & Fred Melo, Pivotal
There’s a lot of excitement from the CloudFoundry (CF) community around Kubo - Pivotal’s and Google’s engineering project for Kubernetes (K8s) clusters managed by BOSH. While Kubo was just accepted as a CF Incubator project, there’s still a lot of confusion around CloudFoundry x Kubernetes use cases and best usage scenarios for services and cloud applications.

This session led by Pivotal and Google will introduce Kubo and compare it with Cloud Foundry - from use case and architecture perspectives. Attendees will learn what are the main differences between CF and Kubernetes, what kinds of workloads are most suitable for each, and how Kubo helps you combine them for a complete cloud native solution. The session will also feature a live demo using both CF and Kubernetes integrated as a single platform.

Kubo - Your Gateway Drug to Cloud-Native - Cornelia Davis, Pivotal

You’re at the Cloud Foundry Summit, which means you are by definition a cloud-native enthusiast. There’s no question that building apps in this architectural style will produce resilient, scalable software in an agile manner, and allow you to operate it far more efficiently than you’ve been able to in the past. But you’ve also got a whole lot of software in your company’s portfolio that isn’t there yet. Do you have to resign yourself to the pains of managing those applications the old way until you can finally refactor them to be cloud-native? Kubo to the rescue.

You can run legacy applications on Kubo without significant refactoring – pure and simple. As an added bonus, it allows you to satisfy the CIO mandate of running containers (check). But it’s far more than that – running those workloads on Kubo offers advantages over running them on traditional virtualized infrastructure. This session covers those advantages –resource consolidation, health management, multi-cloud and more. It will also present the abstractions in Kubernetes, things like pods and stateful sets, that support running legacy workloads in the cloud environments that are far more distributed and changing than they have been in the past. It’s a first step to cloud-native.

Connecting Things Together, an IoT Data Protocol Story - Dave McAllister, Solace
The Internet of Things is rapidly becoming the Internet of Everything. And with that comes massive scale up in data and in messages being generated and delivered for analysis and machine learning. Such scale issues require an understanding of the various wire protocols in use for IoT and for the applications being fed. Without data movement, IoT is meaningless.

So, how do you deal with moving IoT messages into Cloud Foundry?

Dave will help you understand the pros and cons of relevant protocols by demonstrating a simple IoT scenario: A particulate sensor connected to an Arduino Uno that sends MQTT messages into a message router that passes them along to Pivotal Cloud Foundry using REST.

From there, he’ll look at the protocol requirements of a microservices architecture within Cloud Foundry, including considerations of JMS and AMQP. Dave will finish up with a discussion on the emerging multi-cloud and hybrid cloud (public to private to datacenter) architectures and why your data needs to flow where you need it when you need it, in the form that best fits the use case.

Building Resilient Microservices with .NET Core and Steeltoe - Zach Brown & Matt Horan, Pivotal
The cloud encourages a set of design principles that, at first, may seem a little foreign to .NET developers. There are 12-factor apps, microservices, and patterns like service discovery, shared config management, and circuit breakers.

To make their apps run and scale well on Cloud Foundry, developers need to explicitly declare all dependencies, externalize configuration, store session state out of process, and avoid accessing the registry, the GAC, or the local file system.

This session is for developers and architects who want to leverage cloud-native architectures with their .NET apps on Cloud Foundry. The speakers will demonstrate cloud-native development patterns using .NET Core and Steeltoe (https://steeltoe.io), a new project aimed at cloud-native .NET.

Crucible: Towards a Safer and Consistent BOSH Job Interface - James Myers & Aram Price, Pivotal
Crucible is a project to provide a declarative interface for defining BOSH jobs and executing them in a secure and consistent environment.

Crucible takes advantage of containerization via RunC to isolate BOSH jobs on a host to provide improvements for release developers as well as operators. The declarative configuration simplifies the release author experience, and Crucible will handle many of the hand-rolled BOSH-job housekeeping tasks such as managing PID files, log redirection, and directory creation. For the operator Crucible provides better security since jobs will not have unrestricted access to the host VM.

In this talk, James Myers and Aram Price will discuss the development and design of Crucible.
They will cover the improvements to the release developer's experience, and the security and stability benefits for operators.

Topics will include:
An in depth look at how Crucible utilizes RunC to provide release authors and operators with isolated execution environments by default.
A detailed comparisons between the existing BOSH release interface and Crucible's simplified declarative interface,
Examples of how to convert existing bosh releases to use Crucible and the various benefits it provides currently.
The possibilities that Crucible enables for the future.

Lightning Talk: Cloud Foundry Monitoring: How to Never Leave Your Deployment Unattended - Anton Soroko, Altoros
It wasn’t that long ago when, to enable end-to-end monitoring of Cloud Foundry deployments for our clients, we had to set up and configure a complex combination of several monitoring tools. An idea would not leave our heads that there had to be a one-stop solution to handle monitoring at all levels of the deployment, including VM instances, Cloud Foundry’s internal and external components, BOSH, services and applications. Unable to find such a tool, we built one ourselves. During the talk, Anton is going to provide two real-life stories how we managed to avoid an early-stage disaster and saved the client's deployment with an all-in-one highly available and multitenant monitoring stack developed by Altoros for Cloud Foundry.

Skilling Up: How to Effectively Grow a Cloud Foundry Organization - Steve Greenberg, Resilient Scale
Cloud Foundry is a large and complex ecosystem. Coupled with modern, cloud-native development approaches, the amount of information a developer (or operator) must learn is staggering. Because of this, enterprises face significant challenges when growing teams and capabilities at scale. The old methods simply do not work.This talk will help enterprises understand how to best skill up teams to be effective cloud native developers and/or operators on Cloud Foundry. This talk does not focus on the specific tasks or curriculum, but rather the approach and methodology to building effective organizations. We will discuss the challenge, the shortcomings of traditional approaches, and how to best build lasting and scalable competency in Cloud Foundry and cloud-native.

How to Facilitate the Cloud Foundry Adoption with Object Storage - Denis Jannot, Dell EMC
Cloud Foundry is accelerating the adoption of micro services architecture and is impacting the way the unstructured content is accessed. An instance of a service can be started anywhere and scaled on demand, so using traditional file shares is not the solution anymore. Object storage can be accessed from anywhere and is becoming a De Facto standard for cloud native applications. But object storage can also be used to simplify the modernization of existing applications. This session provides an in-depth discussion about why object storage vs file storage and what best practices should be followed to ensure the applications will scale easily. Scalability is crucial for applications targeting the consumer market and for IoT use cases. It will be ended by a demo of a web application developed following those best practices.

On-Demand Data Services with Cloud Foundry - Maria Ntalla & Simon Jones, Pivotal
Cloud Foundry services are a big part of what makes the platform so incredibly powerful; they allow developers to perform self-service provisioning of databases, message queues and anything else that can provide data to their applications. 

The ability to create services entirely on demand was one of Cloud Foundry’s most anticipated features. When the feature was added to Cloud Foundry, an exciting new era began for service authors and users alike. 

In this talk Maria and Simon will show how BOSH and the on-demand-broker are used to enable application developers to do self-service provision of services with configuration tailored to the application’s use case. They will also give an overview of how to develop an on-demand service, best practices and challenges they have seen during their experience with developing on demand service offerings.

Gold Sponsor Lightning Talk: Let a 1000 Flowers Bloom - Dr. Michael Maximilien, IBM

Platform-as-a-service (PaaS) has never been more relevant than it is today. The release of various alternative platforms such as Kubernetes and Docker Swarm are proof positive that users and enterprises want an operating system for the cloud that can help them manage their containers and cloud resources. Cloud Foundry (CF) was at the forefront of PaaS and is easily the most adopted cloud platform on the market. However, it faces the classic innovator's dilemma problems that a successful leader experiences, as alternative platforms become viable. To continue to maintain its lead, we believe CF must aggressively innovate, improve, extend and embrace, so that a 1000 cloud innovative "flowers" bloom. The CF-Extensions PMC and projects are aiming at exactly that. Come hear the latest status of this new PMC and also how you can contribute your own innovative ideas to this growing garden.

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.

Setting up a Multi-Cloud, Enterprise-Grade Cloud Foundry Installation: Bridging Infrastructure Differences with HAProxy - Jürgen Graf, SAP
AWS, Azure, GCP, OpenStack, etc. why choose when you can have them all? Give your users the freedom to decide which infrastructure perfectly suits their needs!

We share our experience with the SAP multi-cloud platform and show how to setup an enterprise-grade Cloud Foundry that supports high performance SSL termination, advanced access control for embargoed countries and restricted development environments, enhanced logging capabilities and many other features. With HAProxy you can achieve all of that not only with one, but with all major IaaS providers.

Every infrastructure has its unique set of powerful features and minor shortcomings. Each has its own way of handling incoming traffic. HAProxy sits right behind the IaaS specific load-balancer. It adds missing features and works around infrastructure differences in order to provide a seamless multi-cloud interface to the endpoints of Cloud Foundry and a streamlined experience to the user. No matter what IaaS provider was chosen.

The best part is: You can start building right now. All features have already been integrated into the haproxy-boshrelease of the cloundfoundry-incubator organization on GitHub.

Getting a Handle on Your Microservices: Istio and the Open Source Broker API - Christopher M Luciano & Morgan Bauer, IBM
Istio provides a proxy to load balance, control traffic behavior, and distribute access controls between services. The Kubernetes Service Catalog, an Open Service Broker implementation, provisions services that are consumed by applications within a cluster. This presentation will demonstrate how Istio can be utilized to proxy communication between a Kubernetes-hosted application and a Service Catalog provisioned database.

The demonstration will start with two applications bound to the same service broker provided service. We will then leverage Istio to direct traffic between the applications from the web and show the metrics that it is collecting. This will demonstrate how Istio can provide value without any modifications to an application.

Save Cloud Resources Using Autosleep Org Enrollment - Pradyut Sarma, SAP
The autosleep (https://github.com/cloudfoundry-community/autosleep) service provides the ability for Cloud Foundry users to automatically have their applications stopped after a given period of inactivity, and then automatically started when accessed through traffic received on their routes.

Users with dedicated orgs today face the problem of having to deal with a lot of resource wastage due to either, applications that need to be available for only a particular time period or applications that are running with minimal to zero accesses. Trial orgs are a good example of such an org. Autosleep exposes a broker which allows space developers to opt-in to autosleep by creating service instances in specific spaces and triggering monitoring the apps in those spaces.

The autosleep service has been recently enhanced with the additional use case of supporting "Automated org enrolment" targeted towards Platform Owners and Org Managers. Org Managers/CF admins can now register an org with autosleep using a simple REST API. Once done, autosleep will automatically start monitoring all spaces within that org and their applications for inactivity for a certain configurable period of time and in case of no activity detected during said interval, will automatically stop such apps.

This talk details this new org enrolment feature with a demo, and provides initial return on experience from SAP running autosleep on its Cloud Foundry landscapes.

Lightning Talk: As an App Developer I Want to Instantly Update my App in Cloud Foundry - Xiwen Cheng, Mendix
The command "cf push” updates or creates an app in Cloud Foundry. In practice this action takes over a minute to complete. This is acceptable as being part of a CI/CD pipeline. However, while you are actively changing source codes during your development phase this becomes a major waste of time. With “cf fastpush” your app is updated in seconds. Now you can use Cloud Foundry as a development environment leveraging Cloud Foundry’s automation and rich services marketplace.

After attending this talk, you’re ready to use “cf fastpush” to speed up your app development time substantially.

Lightning Talk: Cloud Native Application Management with the Stratos Console UI - Neil MacDougall & Richard Cox, SUSE
In this talk we introduce the Stratos UI for Cloud Foundry. This innovative open-source user interface allows application developers and system administrators alike to manage their Cloud Foundry instances and applications through an easy-to-use web-based interface.

We present the architecture of the UI, covering both the front-end (AngularJS) web-based application and the supporting back-end (Go) API server. We will outline how the architecture allows new components to be added to extend the capabilities of the UI as well as to modify its appearance and branding.

We will talk further about how the back-end API Server handles user token management and integrates with the Cloud Foundry UAA to automatically refresh access tokens and proxy API requests to the Cloud Foundry APIs. We will also discuss how our design can support other APIs and endpoint types in the future.

Our goal with this talk is to both introduce the UI that we have built over the last 12 months in order that others can start to use it but more importantly to engage with the open-source community to work with us to contribute and build out its capabilities.

Lightning Talk: Multi-Buildpack Hacks - Topher Bullock, Pivotal
Are you feeling restricted by having to choose only *ONE* buildpack to compile a droplet for your app? Looking to run more than just a boring single-language app on CF? Want to deploy a binary that uses a virtual X Window server then stream that virtual display to Twitch?

Topher will be your guide into the wonderful world that multi-buildpack support unlocks, and show how you can use the CloudFoundry Incubator project to make all of your droplet dreams come true! Attendees will learn how to compose together multiple buildpacks on a single staging container, and use this new power for fun, and (maybe) profit.

To Refactor or Not: How to Systematically Modernize Your Java Applications - Kamala Dasika, Pivotal & Michael Villiger, Dynatrace
Although Cloud Native Apps are the future, most modern enterprises actually consist of a heterogeneous mix of workloads. Enterprises are now looking beyond just new applications as part of their modernization strategy in order to to reduce technical debt, redesign and re-platform their monolithic java applications to a cloud-native architecture.

With such projects increasingly receiving executive attention, initiatives like this begin with big questions - where do I start, what applications make sense to refactor, and what is the user impact?

In this talk we will take you step-by-step and provide a structured framework for:
x Choosing the right candidate apps for modernization
x Uncovering the seams in your monolith you that you can carve off
x Discovering dependencies to reduce cohesion and coupling
x Minimizing customer impact during migration

Keeping your Cutting Edge Platform Cutting Edge: Continuous Delivery of Cloud Foundry - Cora Iberkleid & Kartik Lunkad, Pivotal
So you’ve set up Cloud Foundry. Awesome. Your devs have speed, self-service, agility, no downtime. Great! But wait, there's a platform update? How do you know? It's critical? Hurry and download that file, go patch that dev environment! Good? Great! Now patch your other four environments. Nice job! Time for coffee.

Oh wait - there’s another update? Better get back to your workstation…

Patching and upgrading your Cloud Foundry platform, be it the buildpack, a stemcell, a tile, or Ops Manager itself, is still a manual process. An operator must become aware of new updates, download the files from Pivotal Network, and initiate each update through Ops Manager. Rinse and repeat for each of your foundations. Manual processes are inefficient, cumbersome, and often postponed, leading to risk as potentially important updates are delayed or ignored.

Taking a lesson from the app dev community, we can use the principles and practices of Continuous Delivery to alleviate these challenges. Join us to see how you can set up Concourse pipelines to automate the patching and upgrading of Cloud Foundry itself, such that new releases on Pivotal Network trigger the automated application of updates to all of your foundations. Cuz everyone can use an extra coffee break.

Lightning Talk: Multi-Datacenter Strategies for Data Services - Julian Fischer, anynines
As multi-datacenter setups with Cloud Foundry become more popular it’s worth looking at the most common multi-DC and multi-region scenarios. See how these common scenarios can be classified and how the resulting architectures affect the build pipeline, infrastructure platform and most importantly data service automation.

A walkthrough common data services in the context of different multi-DC scenarios will illustrate do’s and don’ts during the automation for the use at large scale. From data services with inherent multi-DC capabilities to those without, an outline of specific and more generic integration strategies will be presented.

At the end of this talk you will consider multi-datacenter automation of data services more differentiated and have gained a basic understanding of problems and potential solutions.

Lightning Talk: Providing Service Access with Service Keys Using HAProxy and Floating IPs - Christian Brinker, evoila GmbH
Service brokers provide a well-proven way to manage services in Cloud Foundry. This way applications can be easily connected to services like databases or message queues. But there are situations where direct access to a service is required. For this scenario Cloud Foundry provides the concept of generating service keys that hold credentials that allow access to a service instance.

But what about situations in which the service is deployed in a private network that is only accessible from Cloud Foundry? In this talk the speakers Sebastian Böing and Christian Brinker present a solution to achieve this with Floating IPs within OpenStack. Furthermore they provide an approach that uses a remote mechanism for configuring HAProxy for accessing multiple different service clusters at the same time while only requiring at least one Floating IP.
