Two for two! I can see 2106 is going to be a jam packed year. We already have a lot of material to catch-up on so lets go…
Core Cloud Foundry
I'm impressed to see SAP leading the BOSH CPI for Open Stack. This is a great example of what can be achieved by participating in a Cloud Foundry Dojo, intensively training over a 6 week period.
Talking of Dojos, there is a new EMC Dojo opening in Boston on the 22nd Jan.
.Net on Cloud Foundry is gaining momentum. If you want to deply a .NET app on Cloud Foundry, Micah Young and John Shahid expalin how for PCF.
There was a CAB meeting this week. Altoros have provided a comprehensive write up of what was discussed.
Stark and Wayne are front and centre in providing endless tech goodness relating to Cloud Foundry. Check out shied for a wide variety of pluggable data systems including S3 blobstores.
Sometimes you just need to know what Cloud Foundry is working with. Josh Kruck's plugin downloads the current droplet for an app to your local file system. This works even if the app won't start, the only requirement is the stager successfully builds a droplet. It's amazingly valuable for troubleshooting.
- As discussed several times in the past on this post, microservices and Cloud Foundry enjoy an amazing symbiotic relationship. This register post gives a solid overview of microservices.
Any one new to CF there is a good post on thenewstack.io about getting started with Pivotal Cloud Foundry.
There's been an explosion of CF meetups all over the globe. A recap on the recent Shanghai meetup shows that "Cloud is taking off so fast there that opportunities seem to be at every corners." Also great to see the size of the Toronto crowd attending Bridget's Docker and Cloud Foundry meetup.
Talking of growth.. how big is the PaaS market? Enterprise irregulars explains.
I'm in the process of wrapping up a mini book on Cloud Foundry so I need to dash. That's a wrap for this week.
