Deep Dive: CF API on K8s - Piyali Banerjee & Michael Gresham, Vmware
What happens when the strengths of Cloud Foundry and Kubernetes are combined? A radically enhanced experience for developers and operators. This talk provides an overview of the work the CF API team (CAPI) has done over the past year to evolve the Cloud Foundry API to work natively with Kubernetes. Piyali will cover how the CF API server and related components are organized in the cluster, and how major workflows supported by the CF API (i.e.: app staging, stack updates, deployment) works in a system without BOSH and Diego through some exciting demos! Mike (CAPI PM) will share what CAPI’s roadmap will look like for the rest of 2020.

101 Open Service Broker API – Getting to Know the Open Service Broker API - Christian Brinker & Marco di Martino, evoila
Cloud Foundry provides its users with a standardized runtime environment making it easy to push code to production. But when it comes to a productive usage of application, they depend on other necessary components like databases, message queues or log aggregators. But these also have to be provided in a standardized and fast way to speed up a software development process. The solution is called ‘Service Broker’. But how is Cloud Foundry able to make use of such different technologies. The anwser is called ‘Open Service Broker API’. In their talk Christian Brinker and Marco di Martino take the audience on the journey from the reasons for the usage of service brokers via their inner structure and effects to complex production setups. They explain the Open Service Broker API, how to use and implement it. They also present common pitfalls and best practices.

Cloud Foundry on K8s - Path to the Next Generation - Patrick Hartz & Martin Valencia Flores, anynines GmbH
Even now when Kubernetes is becoming more and more popular CF is still a great choice to make micro services available to the outer world. The portability of applications, the easiness of scaling and the dynamic routing are just some benefits. Nowadays VMs are starting to be left behind in favor of containers, and CF is a prime candidate to bring to Kuberntes. For all the reasons mentioned above, and for the user experience that has been gained and built over the years. Progress does not imply starting with a totally clean slate, progress is built upon strong foundations. In this talk we will take you with us on our journey, and tell you why and how we deployed CF on Kubernetes and what challenges came along this road.

Panel: Cloud Foundry – Opening the Kubernetes Serving Kitchen Again - Bernd Krannich, SAP SE; Dieu Cao, VMware; Simon Moser, IBM; Jeff Hobbs, SUSE; Daniel Jones, EngineerBetter
The re-platforming of Cloud Foundry onto Kubernetes has resulted in many tangible results: There are two distributions of a Kubernetes-based Cloud Foundry with kubecf and cf-for-k8s. There are projects like Cloud Native Buildpacks and kpack that bring benefits from the Cloud Foundry ecosystem to the broader Kubernetes community. In this panel discussion – almost a traditional event at Cloud Foundry Summits – representatives of major companies contributing to the Cloud Foundry ecosystem review the status quo but even more importantly the steps ahead of Cloud Foundry's journey towards Kubernetes from both the perspective of people developing and operating the platform as well as end-users of the platform.

Cloud Native Service Mesh Using Spring Cloud and Pivotal Cloud Foundry Technologies - Srini Penchikala, General Motors
Learn about how to migrate from monolithic app architecture to cloud enabled microservices architecture using service mesh and sidecar technologies.

As we started cloud native transformation to host microservices, challenges of managing multiple services on cloud became clear (Death Star). Also, no single product provided all the capabilities (context-sensitive circuit breaker).

We developed a service orchestration solution, as part of transition architecture, using custom sidecar solution based on Envoy and leveraging frameworks like Zuul, Eureka, and Spring Cloud Data Flow. It served as a dedicated layer for svc-to-svc communication and provided multi-tenancy, enabling global deployments of apps.

Envoy based transition-architecture and target-architecture resulted in significant cost savings, reduced time-to-value, and more importantly, secured microservices.

The Diversity Conversation: Making the Invisible Visible: Seeing, Respecting, and Valuing Care and Maintenance in our Code and Beyond - Lauren Bacon, &yet
This year's COVID-19 pandemic has pulled back the curtain on the role of care work within our individual, social, and collective lives. While many of us in the tech sector have experience working remotely and from home, few of us have done so under such extreme and trying circumstances.

In particular, parents with children living at home have been navigating a new world of remote schooling and loss of childcare in an economy that tends to treat child-rearing and other forms of care work as externalities, rather than as central to our lives. In her talk, Lauren Bacon explores the ways in which care work is and isn’t noticed or valued, especially in the tech sector -- and what each of us can do to make that invisible work more visible, more clearly understood -- and ultimately, more valued.

The Diversity Conversation is dedicated to subjects relating to diversity, equity and inclusivity. It is a session open to all Summit attendees. We invite you to attend this event regardless of your prior experience with these topics. It is our hope that you leave the Diversity Conversation inspired and with a call to action, whether it’s a workshop to take, a conversation to have, a book to read, a practice to implement, or a question to ask.

A Set of Tools for Any Kubernetes Project - Mario Manno & Venkata Krishna Rohit Sakala, SUSE
In our effort to build an operator that can deploy Cloud Foundry on Kubernetes, we've discovered several opportunities for features. We'd like to demo these capabilities to the Cloud Foundry community. These can be useful for core contributors to Cloud Foundry, but also users of Kubernetes that have encountered the same limitations as we did. Secret generation, canary deployments, server-side templates, config change detection, feature-rich jobs and more.

Deep Dive: `cf push` Comes to Kubernetes: Introducing cf-for-k8s 1.0 - Paul Warren, Vmware
Cloud Foundry recently launched the much-awaited Cloud Foundry for Kubernetes (cf-for-k8s) 1.0 release. The cf-for-k8s project is aimed at simplifying the development and deployment of cloud-native apps on Kubernetes. In this talk, we will discuss the challenges app developers face in working with Kubernetes, and provide an introduction to Cloud Foundry and “cf push.” We’ll also explore the benefits of abstraction interfaces for app developers, how it leverages popular projects from the Kubernetes ecosystem, and a walkthrough of how to get started. By the end of this session, attendees will be able to understand the general architecture of cf-for-k8s, the benefits of using cf-for-k8s atop Kubernetes, and the project roadmap.

A Journey Through BOSH and BOSH DNS Monitoring - Beyhan Veli, SAP
The BOSH team at SAP operates BOSH as a service for the cloud platform operators and the Cloud Foundry on-demand service brokers. We are also responsible for BOSH DNS, which is used for DNS and service discovery in our Cloud Foundry environments. Like every production service, the performance and availability expectations are very high, because any failed DNS resolution or BOSH operation can have direct customer impact.

Motivated by concrete issues in our production environments, we have continuously worked on identifying the useful metrics and making them available to monitoring tools. No one likes to be paged and that is why it was a crucial task for us to improve the BOSH and BOSH DNS monitoring and define meaningful alerts.
In this talk we share the story of our monitoring journey and the evolution of the metrics which we identified over the time to prevent critical situations on productive environments. Moreover, we will give an update on all the improvements implemented for BOSH and BOSH DNS to make a more sophisticated monitoring possible and the available options to expose those metrics to monitoring tools.

Our Scalability Journey with CF for K8s - Kesavan Subramanian & Pavan Sundareshan, SAP
Cloud Foundry for Kubernetes (cf-for-k8s) provides a way to bring Cloud Foundry Stack on traditional virtual machines to containerization platforms like K8S without compromising the cf push user experience, makes it operator friendly too. It opens up the new dimensions in terms of scalability where we can run a dedicated CF foundation per customer and k8s already gives us flexibility in terms of self managing and operating these foundations at scale. This talk focuses on the scalability aspects of such cf-for-k8s single foundation and share the results of scalability experiments achieved so far which would be useful for platform engineers and operators.
