This month, the Cloud Foundry Foundation celebrated our 5th birthday! We thought we’d treat ourselves to something nice, like this spectacular webpage commemorating this event, a laudatory video, and a blog post; it was a virtual bubble bath of self-reflection and community love.

Abby had this to say about the milestone here:

Chip had this to say about the ever changing platform:

Hope you’re all healthy, relaxed and washing your hands regularly. Many events are being canceled, as you’ve *probably* noticed. KubeCon + CloudNativeCon Europe (originally set for March 30 to April 2, 2020) has been postponed to July or August 2020. Unfortunately, KubeCon + CloudNativeCon + Open Source Summit China in July has been canceled altogether. Read more here

It is an understatement when we say “these are unprecedented times.” During these times of uncertainty, the Cloud Foundry Foundation wants to offer an open zoom “break room” for our community. Please feel free to “walk” into this break room and hang out with others. (Please do remember: Code of conduct applies here as well.)

Hello, everyone. We’ve launched a new Tutorials website to serve as a hub for learning in our community! The hub includes an interactive hands-on lab for first-time Cloud Foundry users to experience how easy the platform makes deploying applications to Kubernetes and is open for the community to contribute. Read the release.


Special thanks to Steve Greenberg at Resilient Scale for the heavy lifting to make this happen! Expect more news on this soon, and if you’re interested in contributing/feedback, please let us know.


Also, CF Summit is going virtual. Here’s the full story.
