Do You Hear That? It’s the sound of Keyboards! Call for Papers | Cloud Foundry Summit Silicon Valley 2017 is quickly approaching!

Call for Papers | Cloud Foundry Summit Silicon Valley 2017 is quickly approaching!

Our brains are on fire, our keyboards are hot, and the joke in the office the past few days has been over our extreme excitement for the eventual need to buy sunscreen since our Boston winter leaves us Vitamin D deprived. Why is this the case, you may or may not be asking? Well, I plan on telling you anyway because it is just too exciting not to share!

Our team is preparing for CLOUD FOUNDRY SUMMIT SILICON VALLEY! We felt a social duty to let all of those we care about and want to be there with us for what’s sure to be the summit of the summer (how can it not be when it is being held in June in Santa Clara?!), that the last call for papers is quickly approaching (no seriously, it’s this Friday, February 17th).

Just as a refresher for those on the fence, Cloud Foundry Summit is the premier event for enterprise app developers. This year the Foundation, through market research and feedback, found that interest and industry need is engrained in the focus on innovation and the streamlining of development pipelines. For this reason, Summit 2017 is majorly honing in on microservices and continuous delivery in developers’ language and framework of choice. That is why the session tracks available will be Use Cases, Core Project Updates, Experiments, Extension Projects, and Cloud Native Java. Each session that is chosen for the conference is enabled (1) primary speaker and (1) co-speaker. The primary speaker receives a complimentary conference pass while the co-speaker receives a discounted conference pass. So what’s stopping us from getting involved? Absolutely NOTHING!

As a sneak peak to a few of the topics our team have submitted for approval, see below:

  • Adopting DevOps and Building a Cloud Foundry Dojo (Lessons Learned)
  • Lift & Shift Your Legacy Apps to Cloud Foundry
  • How to Develop Scalable Cloud Native Application with Cloud Foundry
  • Enabling GPU-as-a-Service in Cloud Foundry
  • Blockchain as a Service
  • Avoiding pitfalls while migrating BOSH deployments
  • Spring Content: Cloud-Native Content Services for Spring

 

So, now what’s stopping YOU from getting involved? Submit papers here: https://www.cloudfoundry.org/cfp-2017/ and/or register here: https://www.regonline.com/registration/Checkin.aspx?EventID=1908081&utm_source=flash&utm_campaign=summit_2017_sv&utm_medium=landing&utm_term=cloud%20foundry%20summit&_ga=1.199163247.1732851993.1460056335

Last but definitely not least, let us know if you plan on coming—we are more than happy to share sunscreen 🙂 We cannot wait to see you there!

THE EVENT OF THE SEASON Coming to Hopkinton December 5th and 6th

Coming to Hopkinton December 5th and 6th

Before reading this blog post, I suggest that you and anyone that may be reading over your shoulder sit down. In your chairs? Great, because the excitement you are about to feel will surely leave you overwhelmed.

 

The event of the quarter is right around the corner! Please consider this your personal invitation to join us for DOJO DAYS next Monday and Tuesday, December 5th and 6th from 10 am to 4 pm in the 176 Café out at Dell EMC in Hopkinton.

DevOps is a hot word in the world of technology. It represents a way of working and technique that aims at making the customer omnipresent in everything that is created and delivered. Companies today consider this way the future.

For this reason, Dell EMC and Pivotal paired to create the first ever Dell EMC – Pivotal Cloud Foundry Dojo. Our goals are centered around personal, team and company transformation. Through the practice of modern software development, we spend our days contributing to Cloud Foundry Foundation sanctioned Open Source projects through R&D modernization and methodology known as ‘the way’ (XP, Lean Startup).

Many know us as the team in Cambridge with great food and beverage (no really, it’s amazing- come visit us to see for yourself). We realize, though, that the commute isn’t ideal for most. So, we bring you Dojo Days to experience #adayinthelifeofthedojo, with a replication of our office environment and our team in action representing the steps we took to transform.

In addition to seeing #adayinthelifeofthedojo, you will have the chance to pair with us, join our team for lightning sessions that are driven by the audience’s goals (schedule below) and have the chance to win a Dell EMC Dojo branded Patagonia, S’well water bottles, t-shirts, and more!

 

The schedule of the lightning sessions are as follows. Please come by the Café day of to sign up and/or just drop in:

Monday, December 5th:

11:45 am to 12:45 pm: Steps to Transformation starring Brian Roche and Megan Murawski

2:00 pm to 2:30 pm: TDD and CI/CD starring Xuebin He

 

Tuesday, December 6th:

11:45 am to 12:45 pm: PaaS, and Why your Developers Care starring Gary White

1:30 pm to 2:00 pm: Factor, Cloud Native, and Containers (oh my!) starring Thinh Nguyen

 

If you have any questions, please contact Emily Kaiser at Emily.Kaiser@dell.com. Otherwise, we cannot wait to see you, your team, and all of your friends out in Hopkinton next week!
