CFCamp (Cloud Foundry Unconference)
What is CFCamp?
CFCamp is an unconference just before Cloud Foundry Summit. An unconference does not have a set of predetermined presentation topics. Instead, attendees propose and vote on topics they want to discuss in breakout sessions. Unconferences are a great way to share ideas and discuss solutions. We hope you will join us!

Who should attend?
Users, consultants, vendors, entrepreneurs, developers, operators and ISVs in the Cloud Foundry community: Let your voices be heard. And let us work together to help this community grow.

Visit the official Meetup page for more information and to register.

Hackathon - Sponsored by VMware
Register Now!

Come join an enthusiastic bunch of Cloud Foundry developers in our annual Summit Hackathon!

Bring your ideas and energy as we build interesting prototypes to extend CF functionality where it has never gone before.  Come with a team or come on your own and find a team during the event. Top three teams get awesome prizes and first place winners will be announced on stage during the Friday morning keynotes.  This is a free event.

Topics: Any project that extends and enhances CF in an interesting way.  This could include: new CLI plugins, new buildpacks, additional multi-cloud capabilities via BOSH CPIs, innovative services or marketplace capabilities, reusing a Cloud Foundry component in a unique way, etc.  The overall goal here is to build on Cloud Foundry itself, not to build applications that run on Cloud Foundry.

Rules: Maximum of 4 individuals per team, and at least 80% of code should be written during the event.

Schedule: The Hackathon will start with a full day moderated session on Tuesday, ending before Summit keynotes begin.  Teams are encouraged to continue to work on their own until submissions are due at 2:00pm on Thursday.

CF Killed the ITSM Star - Kyle Campos, CSAA Insurance
The enterprise change process is filled with tickets, approvals and all forms of non-deterministic change review and time wasting gates that dominate the ITSM landscape. Cloud Foundry has thrown a monkey wrench into ITSM in the form of high velocity change via CI/CD and a healthy embrace of the DevOps "automate all the things" mantra.

Our DevOps and PCF platform leader, Kyle Campos, will talk about how we at CSAA are raising the quality and security bars of the platform even as deployment velocity increases through infrastructure and application CI/CD pipelines and how automation can serve the ITSM overlords through higher levels of determinism.

Changes in cloud orchestration technologies have started to push the boundaries between Cloud Native applications and their environment.

The notion of smart endpoints gave rise to shared libraries, like Ribbon from Netflix, to encapsulate outbound service discovery, load balancing, and fault tolerance. Now new technologies, like Istio, call that paradigm into question, suggesting those concerns should move out of the app and back into the infrastructure. What does that mean for Java applications using Netflix integrations in Spring Cloud?

The emergence of reactive programming is also pressing against the dominance of REST. Should everything be reactive now?

From shared libraries to sidecars, buildpacks to containers, Erin will demonstrate how different Java application frameworks are adapting to the changing Cloud Native landscape.

Using Cloud Foundry Container Runtime to Run Your Kubernetes Clusters - Oleksandr Slynko, Pivotal & Kaiting Chen, VMware
Cloud Foundry Container Runtime (CFCR and formerly Kubo) is an OSS project developed jointly by Vmware, Pivotal and Google. It provides an uniform way to instantiate, deploy, and manage highly available vanilla Kubernetes clusters using BOSH - on GCE, vSphere, AWS, Openstack and Azure.

Using BOSH and CFCR to manage Kubernetes gives self healing, easily upgradeable clusters with managed secrets rotation. Cluster creation is simplified to the point where clusters can be created and destroyed for use in development or sandbox environments.

In this presentation, Oleksandr and Kaiting will demonstrate deployment across multiple IAASes, cluster healing, cluster upgrade and cluster creation.

CredHub and Secure Credential Management - Peter Blum & Scott Frederick, Pivotal
From the platform all the way down to the microservices which run upon it, secrets are everywhere and leaking them can be a costly experience. Understanding security best practices, such as encrypting secrets while in transit; encrypting secrets at rest; rotating secrets regularly; preventing secrets from unintentionally leaking when consumed by the final application; and strictly adhering to the principle of least-privilege, where an application only has access to the secrets that it needs—no more, no less.....can be daunting. A new Cloud Foundry Foundation project, CredHub, was designed for these reasons. This session will take a fresh look at how to enhance security within Cloud Foundry and applications through secret management by utilizing CredHub in conjunction with Spring Cloud Services.

Cost of Delay--How PCF Helped Demonstrate the DoD Can't Afford Business as Usual - Capt Bryon Kroger & Tory Galvin, United States Air Force
In partnership with Pivotal Labs, the Air Force Life Cycle Management Center (AFLCMC) and Defense Innovation Unit Experiment (DIUx) are demonstrating that cloud-native cycle times can lead to astronomical impacts. Our implementation of PCF paired with the "Pivotal Way" decreased our initial release time from an average of five years down to 120 days! Additionally, as opposed to 1-2 year update cycles on minor releases, we have now achieved continuous delivery. In the case of our first application in production, doing business the old way would have resulted in a $391M cost of delay. Rather than focusing on Total Life Cycle Cost to make decisions, the proposal is to demonstrate the Cost of Delay to inform and guide.

Operating PCF via Concourse. Or, How to Sleep More and Worry Less - Therese Stowell & Ryan Pei, Pivotal & Yuri Litvinovich, Scotiabank
Cloud Foundry has a lot of knobs and dials. If you’re an operations team, how can you ensure that you have declarative, repeatable processes for installation, upgrade, and disaster recovery? Leveraging published Concourse pipelines turns operations from snowflake-creation to push-button rinse & repeat.

This talk will feature both the folks building CF and the folks operating CF. They’ll discuss and demonstrate using Concourse to install, upgrade, and manage disaster recovery on CF, including DR strategies like active-inflate aimed at reducing recovery time. They’ll give real world examples of how they manage multiple CF installations and can offer CF as a Product to their app developers, with guaranteed SLAs and well defined RTOs. And they’ll discuss reference architectures that accommodate CF, Credhub, and Concourse.

Concourse All of the Things at All Times - Jason Immerman, Zipcar & Derek Van Assche, HS2 Solutions
How do large engineering organisations build reliable and well-defined processes to help dev teams get their work to production?

Zipcar answered this question by replacing a patchwork of semi-automated and manual testing, approval and deployment processes with a series of autonomous pipelines powered by the powerful and supremely flexible continuous integration/delivery system "Concourse".

Concourse allowed Zipcar to move from a tightly controlled weekly release cycle to a loose peer-reviewed process allowing 100+ applications to be tested, integrated and deployed on a continuous basis.

This presentation will focus on the real world experience of automating creation of well-tested deployable artifacts (in Zipcar's case, docker images, ready to be deployed into a diego-based infrastructure) and the tactics that can be employed in coordinating and expressing dependencies between applications that are managed according to their own autonomous schedules. It will discuss the limitations and constraints of pipelined integration testing and will suggest several approaches to overcoming them.

CF^3 - Putting a Kubernetes Behind CF - Julz Friedman, Andrew Edgar & Julian Skupnjak, IBM
Container scheduling is increasingly commoditised. Diego, Kubernetes, Mesos, Nomad, Swarm.. - and all of them could be backends to our beloved CF Platform! You think we have a fever dream ? Come join us in our talk and we’ll prove you wrong. We’ll introduce CUBE (https://github.com/julz/cube), which is a prototype to abstract our way out of being stuck with one particular scheduler. Cube syncs CF apps to a kube backend (or any other container scheduling backend — pluggability ftw!) in exactly the same way that the diego nsync component works today, except using generated OCI images. After staging, you get a nice shippable, auto-patched OCI image, and you can use the regular “cf push” flow and get a first-class Kubernetes Deployment/ReplicaSet (or a Diego LRP, Or a Docker Stack). In other words, it decouples buildpack staging and stateless-multitenant-app running and does both of them in a “cloud native” way, on top of any scheduler”. But that’s enough teasing, come and listen to the talk if we got you interested!

Disaster Recovery for Kubernetes Just Got Easier - Michael Rhodes, Dell EMC
In this talk we will walk through the value of running services in Kubernetes clusters, how they can be integrated quickly into Cloud Foundry, (via the Open Service Broker API), and how you can use a new OSB API extensions model called “Actions” to offer up backup & restore utilities to your end users. Pair all of this with Dell EMC Data Domain to reduce the transfer and storage size of backup data and you have a solid production data service story.

This topic is especially relevant with the release of Kubernetes persistent volumes there has been a shift in the way that data services are being deployed to production. Service Providers can choose from an endless number of open source components and get an (almost) production ready database up and running in kubernetes very quickly. With help from the Open Service Broker API and its extensions enhancement, Cloud Foundry Administrators can integrate kubernetes backed services into their platforms and give their users additional tools for managing instances, such as backup and restore.

Transforming a Bank with a Highly-Opinionated Automated Release Pipeline - Reid Levesque, Royal Bank of Canada
Can development teams focus on developing business logic while avoiding the bureaucratic jungle to get to production? Microservices are great at speeding up development time and shortening the feedback loop -- unless every team has to build a pipeline from scratch. In an organization used to monthly or quarterly releases, moving to daily or hourly deployments requires more than a change in application architecture.

This session will cover how we’ve automated all the things while still giving developers the freedom to be successful.

Test Driven Development for Microservices Using Spring Cloud Contracts & Cloud Foundry - Reshmi Krishna & Adib Saikali, Pivotal
TDD introduced many improvements into the development process, but in our opinion the biggest impact relates to code design. Looking at the code from the usage perspective (by first writing an acceptance test) allows us to focus on usability rather than concrete implementation. Unfortunately, we usually rest on our laurels not trying to uplift this practice to the architecture level.

Consumer driven contracts (CDC) are like TDD applied to the API. It’s especially important in the world of microservices. Since it’s driven by consumers, it’s much more user friendly. Of course microservices are really cool, but most people do not take into consideration plenty of potential obstacles that should be tackled. Then instead of frequent, fully automated deploys via a delivery pipeline, you might end up in an asylum due to frequent mental breakdowns caused by production disasters.

This presentation will show you how you can use the Spring Cloud Contracts to have a fully automated solution to a consumer driven testing disasters. We will then deploy all these applications to Cloud Foundry. At the end, you will see how easy is it to write applications that have a consumer driven API and that will allow a developer to speed up the time of writing his better quality software.

Bring Your Own Code vs. Bring Your Own Container - Comparison of the Cloud Foundry Application Runtime and Kubernetes Approach - Matthias Haeussler, NovaTec Consulting GmbH
This talk shows best practices how to deploy and operate on a Cloud platform fast.

Platform and Container as a Service layers (PaaS/CaaS) enable developers to deliver the functionality of their code to end users in a fast way.
The technologies with the highest adoption rate for each approach are currently Cloud Foundry and Kubernetes.

Fundamental difference between both approaches is the abstraction layer. While the focus is on the application in Cloud Foundry, it is on the container in Kubernetes.
This talk gives an analysis what kind of a difference this makes for a developer that has to deploy the software using both technologies.

It will show on the basis of a Spring Boot microservice application which steps you need to take to get it configured and running on either platform approach.
The analysis will also cover connection to backing services, scaling, recovery from failure, zero-downtime deployment, logging and monitoring.

From Zero to Cloud in 12 Easy Factors - Jatin Naik & Ed King, Pivotal
It’s no secret that Cloud Foundry provides an amazing platform to deploy and run your applications, and getting your applications deployed to the Cloud is as easy as `cf push`, right? Well, yes, assuming your .NET applications are ready for the cloud. There are a number of “rules” your apps need to abide by in order to get the maximum value from the platform. These rules are commonly referred to as the “12 Factors”.

I’m sure you’ve probably heard of the term “12 factor”, but what exactly does it mean, and more importantly, what needs to be done to take your existing apps and convert them to “12 factor” apps?

For this session, Ed and Jatin have prepared a “0 factor" ASP.NET/C# web app, one that is completely unsuitable for the Cloud. Join them as they transform the app, factor-by-factor, into one that is Cloud Native and ready for the Foundry.

Istio Platform vs Spring and MicroProfile Frameworks - Ozzy Osborne, IBM UK
Istio is an open platform which aims to provide a uniform way to connect, manage and secure microservices. However, these are capabilities that are already provided by a variety of programming frameworks, such as Netflix OSS and MicroProfile fault tolerance. Can a platform really know everything about an application, or does the application sometimes know better?

In this session Ozzy will start with an introduction to the Istio architecture, including the sidecar model and what it means to deploy your application in this way. He will cover the technologies that overlap with existing framework capabilities such as security and fault tolerance. The differences between the approaches will be highlighted, including when to use which and how you can make them work in harmony together.

Istio also provides capabilities that compliment existing microservice and cloud native architectures. He will cover some of these functions, such as smart routing to enable A/B testing and canary deployments, together with how to make use of them within this new platform.

Why Do I Need Kubernetes When I Already Have Cloud Foundry? - Sanjay Patil, SAP
Like many of you, several SAP teams have also been asking this question to themselves. While the answer is singular in some cases (either Cloud Foundry or Kubernetes), in many situations, there is room or rather a need for both these technologies. In this session, you will learn why several SAP teams have adopted Kubernetes / container model for developing comprehensive solutions (more than what a typical ‘cf push’ can handle) and deploying them on-premise and/or in the cloud. Some of these Kubernetes based solutions are also exposed as services in Cloud Foundry environment, whereby Cloud Foundry applications can consume them via the simple and familiar service binding paradigm.

SaaSB - One Broker to Rule Them All - Christian Brinker, evoila
At the foot of mount coal there was forged a service broker. One Broker to rule them all. For the hackathon at the CF Summit Europe 2017 the fellowship of the broker came together to bring Cloud Foundry a service broker to enable access to the marketplace for all of the apps deployed to Cloud Foundry.

Cloud Foundry helps developers to deploy their applications in a fast and easy manner. Thereby one of the key benefits is usage of services from the marketplace. But one problem remains. The high isolation between platform users leads to a lack of interaction points between them. Either sharing solutions between departments in private clouds or monetizing your applications in public clouds is well support.

But why not providing your apps through the marketplace to other platform users? This addresses the winning team of the CF Summit Europe 2017 hackathon with their Software-as-a-Service-Broker. A service broker allowing the platform provider to enable offerings of apps in the marketplace. Normally this needs the development of a new service broker for each kind of app. The SaaSB even enables for a pay-as-you-go selling of the apps via the platform provider.

“One Broker to rule them all,
One Broker to find them;
One Broker to bring them to all
and in Cloud Foundry bind them.”

Eyes on Target - Continuously Fielding Mission Driven Value - Keith Strini, Pivotal
At Pivotal, when we entered the national security space we made a conscious effort to translate the shared values of our company into those that were culturally aligned with this community. We did this with the stubborn intent to not sacrifice the speed at which we enable our customers to deliver innovation.

It required us to extensively collaborate with national security customers to define a new goal to align value and distill the non-value added work. This new primary goal was the development and implementation of a continuous fielding model. With a unified fielding platform strategy we are collectively working to overcome the delivery challenges of fielding to the last mile, out to the edge.

In the national security space its not how fast can you get an idea into production but how fast can you deliver a compliant solution to a mission need. This requires all of the pieces to be accounted for including compliancy. It drives a single KPI, the mean time between fielding. This KPI measures our ability to deliver the velocity needed to maintain the Effective Operational Agility.

The Keys to the Cloud: Centralizing and Improving Permissions in Cloud Foundry - Isobel Redelmeier, Pivotal
Have you ever had a developer who needed to push new code, but you didn't want them to see environment variables? Had to make everyone in a team Org Managers because it got too complicated to track what roles everyone needed? Or maybe you want to be able to make your own roles that combine permissions across components.

Perm, the new permissions service, aims to solve all of these problems. Perm centralizes access control across Cloud Foundry components so that you can better manage, audit, and even customize authorization decisions across your foundations. Perm is also integrating with external identity providers such as LDAP, making it easier to ensure all employees have the appropriate roles even as they switch teams across your enterprise.

For those rusty on authorization, the talk will provide background on different types of authorization systems, such as role-based access control (RBAC) and OAuth2.

In this talk, you'll learn about how Perm simplifies Cloud Foundry authorization, what Perm's roadmap looks like, and why we've made some of our bigger technical decisions. Most importantly, you'll learn how to improve the security of your platform overall!

From No Delivery to Continuous Delivery: How the Air Force Gave In and Embraced Industry - Adam Furtado, US Air Force
From the Internet to the microchip, the Department of Defense had been at the forefront of technology development throughout its history. Over the past few decades, software innovation in the commercial sector has left the DoD in its dust. Simultaneously, as the DoD became more and more reliant on software, their ability to deliver it rapidly worsened.

The Air Force realized that they needed a radical change and an innovative leap forward in order to give the warfighter the capability they need to win the war. That radical change included partnering with Pivotal Labs, embracing Cloud Foundry and turning the traditional DoD business model on its head.

This presentation discusses how the Air Force is mimicking Silicon Valley culture, growing its agile competency and continuously delivering better products to the warfighter, faster.

Simpler Releases, Faster Upgrades: BOSH Package Vendoring and Colocated Errands - Maria Ntalla & Maya Rosecrance, Pivotal
Until now, authors of BOSH releases have had to package any dependencies their software needed in their release. While this offers great flexibility, it means that for more complex deployments, there is unnecessary duplication of third-party dependencies. This also makes it difficult to patch external dependencies as they are kept in so many places.

One-off tasks are typically packaged as BOSH errand jobs. Until now, running BOSH errands would require spinning up a VM at the IaaS level. That’s costly and can take up to several minutes, depending on the IaaS.

BOSH recently introduced two very powerful features: package vendoring and errand colocation. Attendees will learn how to use them to simplify release package management, make deployments smaller in footprint, speed up operating and upgrading BOSH deployments.

Two, you would like to modernize this application and/or make it cloud-native but currently lack the budget to do so. Three, you wonder if there is anything you can do today to get a head start on this non-trivial effort.

Good news, the answer is “yes!” In this session you’ll learn 5 concrete and incremental changes you can begin today that will help you gain that head start in place. Why do next year what you can begin next week?

This session is geared towards decision makers and managers with a technical background. In addition to the checklist, you'll also see a few concrete examples (code) that illustrate the main points discussed.

Debugging Cloud Foundry Apps: Via Service Mesh, Open Tracing - Idit Levine, Solo.io
The mainstreaming of containerization and microservices is raising a critical question by both developers and operators: how do we debug all this?

Debugging microservices applications is a difficult task. The state of the application is spread across multiple microservices, and it is hard to get a holistic view of the state of the application. Currently debugging of microservices is assisted by openTracing, which helps in tracing of a transaction or workflow for post-mortem analysis, and linkerd and itsio which monitor the network to identify latency problems. These tools however, do not allow to monitor and interfere with the application during run time.

In this talk, we will describe and demonstrate common debugging techniques and we will introduce Squash, a new tool and methodology.

CF Application Runtime on CF Container Runtime (Kubernetes) - Thinh Nguyen, EMC
Due to CF Application Runtime(CFAR) and CF Container Runtime (CFCR) benefits, we use them for automating applications deployments in the cloud. However, as CFAR usually underutilizes its cloud infrastructure due to its large resource consumption, we experimentally put its components on top of CFCR. As a result, we got a utilized and scalable combination that brings the best of both platforms for cloud application deployments.

We will use a polyglot based micro-services sample application (i.e. Java and .NET) together with Pivotal Apps Manager and Pivotal Cloud Foundry Metrics to illustrate how all these tools integrate and can be used in detecting and diagnosing a failing application.

The Route to Rootless Containers - Will Martin, Pivotal
Rootless containers are a new and exciting development in the container community, offering up the ability to create and manage containers as completely unprivileged, non-root users. This is hugely appealing both in terms of security, as well as making container-based workloads more accessible to a much wider audience.

Over the past few months the Cloud Foundry Garden team have been working to bring support for rootless containers to the platform. This talk will focus on how and why we went about doing so, including a technical overview of what rootless containers are, why they’re important and how we make use of them inside Cloud Foundry.

The talk will also discuss Cloud Foundry’s use of the Open Containers Initiative (OCI) standards, and how the platform has benefited from new features, such as rootless containers, by adopting them.

The Tale of Two Runtimes: Kubernetes in Cloud Foundry - Konstantin Semenov, Pivotal
The Container Runtime, CFCR, has been recently introduced as part of the Cloud Foundry Foundation. It leverages Kubernetes to run all sorts of workloads.

The core CFCR team has been busy making sure that CFCR runs on multiple platforms, provides high availability, follows the best security practises, and integrates with CFAR, previously known as the Elastic Runtime.

As part of this presentation, a demo will be presented showing how 12-factor apps running on Application Runtime can leverage 3-rd party Docker packaged software with persistence, and what will happen during an infrastructure failure.

Attend this talk if you're interested in learning the available features of CFCR, or if you may be wondering when to use it, and how to get the best of both Application Runtime and the Container Runtime by using them alongside each other.

In this session, we will demo an experiment in which we run Cloud Foundry (workloads) on a bunch of Raspberry Pis. As Raspberry is ARM instead of x86, and has no virtualization, we had to work through the whole stack, including the creation of a minimal IaaS, BOSH CPI, ARM stemcells, BOSH agent, and a buildpack. We will talk about each of these, the architecture and what we learned along the way. Did we say *live demo* yet?

Ensuring Platform Security with Windows Bosh Add-ons and Runtime-Config at Boeing - Sheryl Maris, Boeing
We did it! InfoSec said “Not a chance you’re deploying Ubuntu and Windows on Pivotal Cloud Foundry unless you meet our highly stringent requirements!”. We were told – “You must implement virus protection and reporting; you must monitor about 100ish security controls, check them daily, and report anomalies daily; you must force multi-factor authentication for the opsman UI and SSH connections to opsman, and you must not allow direct access to any servers – all access must come from only the load balancers and go-routers”. What? Really? Um, okay, I see we have no choice.
Under immense time pressure, we found a way. We added some fairly simple Bosh Add-ons to the runtime config and applied via Concourse to all of our foundations. How easy was that?
Maybe your InfoSec team is as hard as ours (pretty likely). If you’re an operations/infradev person focused on security and want to learn an eloquent and technically simple way to meet their requirements, please come by and hear from our off-the-wall team.  Cooperating daily with our InfoSec lead E.J., our stressed out Service Manager Brad was, well, stressed out. Our tech leads, James and Sheryl saved the day (with the help of our Pivots of course).
You’ll walk away learning some simple custom Bosh Add-ons applied via Runtime Config that met InfoSec’s tough requirements. Probably similar requirements at almost any company I would hazard a guess.  We would love to talk to you anytime about our journey. We have implemented Windows on PCF quite successfully (how did we do this with the MS licensing restrictions?) and are hosting .NET Framework applications and .NET Core on Linux, we plan to implement Windows 2016 Core this year, Developers use SteelToe for the .NET Core and Framework applications to take advantage of Spring framework, we use SAML federation via PingFed to our Active Directory, Multi-Factor Authentication via smart card for Opsman, and probably a hundred other interesting topics.
 Attend this talk to learn some simple, custom BOSH add-ons applied via Runtime Config saved the day, using Concourse to deploy to all foundations.

Immutability for Cloud Foundry: Security in a Cloud Native World - Nolan Karpinski, Immutable Systems
In a cloud native environment, with applications that are abstracted from infrastructure such as Cloud Foundry based apps, there is an opportunity to reconsider the fundamental approach to security.

Bracket Computing has been working closely with the Cloud Foundry community to create new tools to harden a CF foundation and make it truly immutable. A truly immutable infrastructure will include controls to assure that stemcells cannot be modified even with the highest levels of privilege. This means that even with root access, a truly immutable infrastructure will resist the attack.

Bracket has developed a unique architecture that applies security and immutability controls via a virtualization layer called the Metavisor that wraps every stemcell. Enforcing immutability with Metavisor means that the controls cannot be bypassed even if an attacker gains root access to the stemcell VM.

This talk will focus on five areas required to achieve infrastructure immutability for CF:

1. Kernel immutability. Critical parts of the kernel such as the system call table should be protected.
2. File immutability. All file changes should be tracked and authorized.
3. Privilege immutability. Privilege changes should be monitored and/or disallowed.
4. Process immutability. Certain processes, for example a web server, should never spawn shells or execute unknown code.
5. Network immutability. Allowed ports and protocols should be static at runtime.

The main idea for this talk is to show the audience how we created fully automated continuous integration and continuous delivery pipelines using concourse and PCF for legacy .net application. We will go through all big choices that we had to make at the beginning and all challenges that we faced while working on that project.
We start off by briefly describing migration requirements and preconditions.
In the main part of the presentation, we focus on work that needs to be done to setup pipeline. In this part, we discuss the following topics:
·       Toolset decision (TFS vs Concourse)
·       Build process
·       Integration environment deploy
·       Acceptance tests execution
·       Package delivery
You will be left with a ready solution for most common issues and choices that you will have to make during your own migration process.

First Line of Defense: Patching Vulnerable Java Application Dependencies in CF - Aner Mazur, Snyk
What happens when a critical Java security vulnerability is detected in an application dependency, and upgrading is hard? How could you respond quickly without disrupting your development process and immediately shifting substantial resources to test a major upgrade?

This talk will analyze high-impact Java vulnerabilities, such as the Apache Struts vulnerability that was exploited in the May 2017 Equifax data breach. We'll show how to exploit them as an attacker would, discuss the various ways such a Java vulnerability could be addressed in the CF environment, as well as present an automated patch first, upgrade later approach.

99 Problems but a Container Ain't One: Patterns for Application Development Without Toil - Julz Friedman, IBM
There's an important secret about distributed systems and it's this: state is bad. State is the original sin that turns cattle into pets. Patterns focusing on stateless code - Serverless, Cloud Foundry, 12 Factor, Map/Reduce etc - allow programmers to focus on their app, and not on orchestration. This talk is a guide to the why and how of Orchestratorless, Containerless and Serverless development: that is development where you get to focus on your application, not containers and orchestration and servers and how Cloud Foundry can should and does fit into that movement.

As .NET developers and Windows operators, we want to let cloud services do more for us so we can focus on delivering business values. In other words, we want to innovate faster without sacrificing our weekends.

Containerization has been a myth for those in the Windows world. What does it mean and how can we best leverage it to our advantage? In this talk, we will discuss how Windows containers are implemented in Cloud Foundry so .NET developers can have the same CF Haiku experience as Java developers: "Here is my source code, run it in the cloud for me, I do not care how." What about Day 2 operations? We will also examine how the platform takes care of the Day 2 concerns. In addition, we will explore Docker containers and provide insights on pros and cons and best use cases.

FaaS & Furious: Running Serverless Apps on Multiple Clouds with CF Container Runtime and Project Riff - Guillermo Tantachuco, Pivotal
In this session, Guillermo will explain how your organization can leverage Cloud Foundry Container Runtime and Project Riff to build a Function-as-a-Service platform that lets you run and automatically scale your polyglot functions in response to a variety of events...on-premises and in the public cloud. Along the way, we will explore together why everyone is curious about serverless programming and demonstrate with a live demo multiple scenarios (web events, IoT streams, among others) that showcase the key capabilities that differentiate Project Riff from other FaaS projects.
Come see why adding functions to your architecture toolbox can help you do more with less and focus on delivering great user experiences for your users.

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 is now 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 capabilities such as isolation segments, application-identity certificates, and improved reliability of the CF routing tiers, 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-based CF deployment with confidence and to take advantage of the powerful features it provides for your users and their applications.

Platform Automation the Pivotal Way: How I Learned to Stop Typing and Love the Operations Manager - Alan McGinlay, Pivotal
Operational efficiency is a key goal in the world of cloud platforms, but how you get there is your choice.

The Pivotal Network and Pivotal Cloud Foundry Operations Manager provide customers with cosy browser interfaces for deploying and upgrading robust distributed systems without you ever getting your hands really dirty. But where's the catch?

With major releases of Pivotal Cloud Foundry scheduled every quarter and the spectre of critical vulnerability lurking around every corner, your business depends upon a reliable and repeatable strategy for repaving all your instances with confidence and speed. The words "mouse" or "keyboard" should not feature in your solution, but where does that leave us with the Operations Manager?

In this session, Alan will discuss his experiences with the Operations Manager and how a chance encounter with the Ops Manager API led to some deep dives and a new way of thinking about CI/CD in the platform space.

Delivering Business Value by Migrating & Modernizing .NET - Naveen Babu, Travelers & Zach Brown, Pivotal
Developers choose to use .NET when building new and modernizing existing business applications for a variety of reasons including skills/knowledge, personal preference and existing portfolio/investment. In this session, Naveen (Travelers) and Zach (Pivotal) will share real-world experiences of migrating and modernizing .NET applications on Cloud Foundry.

Cloud computing encourages a new set of patterns and best practices, such as microservices, 12-factors, service registry, and circuit breakers, to name a few. Using tools like Steeltoe and Cloud Foundry, developing new greenfield .NET apps that embrace these cloud-native patterns has become relatively easy. On the other hand, migrating and modernizing existing brownfield .NET apps is the elephant in the room. Practices that developers commonly used in the past (e.g. dependencies on the registry, GAC, and local file system) have become cloud anti-patterns. From their experience developing and migrating .NET applications at Travelers, the speakers will share some of the challenges faced and lessons learned with a focus on delivering business value.

This session is for developers and architects who want to unlock business value in their existing .NET application portfolio by migrating and modernizing their apps on Cloud Foundry.

From Big Data to Global Lean Application Platform - Our Journey to Cloud Foundry - Olivier Brun, Orange & Alexandre Vasseur, Pivotal
Orange Group has mandate to setup large innovative solutions to support all countries and business needs. It covers platform think, build and run both as one central or several country level instantiations while keeping homogeneity and reducing costs and snowflakes.

As part of a global cloud native transformation across Orange countries, businesses and IT teams - OLAF Orange Lean Application Facilities was launched and encompasses topics from CI/CD developer ecosystem tools to actual big data, NoSQL and cloud native platform.

Adopting Cloud Foundry as a part of it immediately made sense - as long as the underlying larger strategic streams could be mapped for the long term:
- developer onboarding and project facilitation for several thousands of them
- rich catalog of service with a mix of build, buy & integrate strategy
- operational excellence for keeping the platform and apps running at scale on private cloud
- vendor neutrality and skill center development
- innovation acceleration for cloud native, microservices and container-first architecture
- simple rollout of a reference architecture at global scale

Come hear about our journey to start and measure success in transforming Orange Group how we leveraged and expanded the specifics of Pivotal Cloud Foundry, Pivotal DOJOs implementation approach and the Cloud Foundry partner ecosystem to rollout OLAF with developer-efficiency, secure-first, global-ready and automate-everything core goals in our design.

Strategies For Managing Container Secrets At Scale - Matt Surabian, Zipcar
Managing the deployments of thousands of apps for hundreds of developers wouldn't be possible for Matt's team at Zipcar if it weren't for Cloud Foundry. Doing so securely wouldn't be possible without HashiCorp's Vault.

Secret management for containers at scale is a huge challenge, especially if you have compliance requirements like regular rotation of credentials, auditability, and emergency response time. Thankfully there are lots of great community projects that are able to help; the trick is knowing which to leverage given your threat model. This talk will outline some options for managing secrets in a containerized environment and propose a solution to the dreaded "secure introduction" problem.

Service Fabrik 2.0 : A More Pluggable and Flexible Backing Service - Shashank Mohan Jain & Ashish Jain, SAP
Service Fabrik is an open source cloud foundry incubation project which takes care of provisioning and management of backing services. This proposal talks about a model of Service Fabrik which is event driven and based on decoupled components which participate and communicate via an event Mesh facilitated by Service Fabrik.
The concept is based on Event Sourcing where the Event Store is point of coordination for different components. This facilitates easy onboarding of external components and modules into the service Fabrik eco-system.
To facilitate this, we intend to model service Fabrik not on a request response kind of programming model, but a resource and control loop based programming model.
Some of the benefits of this model would be the following.
Adding new Provisioner
Bring your own provisioner in a polyglot language independent way, with batteries included for BOSH, Docker, RabbitMQ Virtual-Host based provisioning.
Provides a pluggable deployment pipeline and ability to define hooks as part of provisioning/de-provisioning call chain.
Cross consumption from different environment like Kubernetes
Ability to add Security Groups/Network policies based on environment. The concept adds Security Groups /Network Policies as first-class constructs in Service Fabrik Framework.
Ability to give Service endpoints via Infra Load balancers.
Ability to create Bastions per service with service based isolation of resource.
Pluggable Provisioning, Backup, Restore and monitoring with batteries included.

Customizing Your Windows Experience - Pick Your Own Journey - Guna Vijayaratnam & Rick Ross, Pivotal
Cloud Foundry provides users with a great deal of flexibility in terms of customizing the Windows experience (at the IaaS or Application) on the platform. There are several layers where this customization can be accomplished - through Bosh managed Windows releases or the actual Windows containers that host the applications.

Some of the areas that customers typically have a need to customize include:

Turning Multi-cloud Deployments into Useful Events - Andy Lowe, Allstate
Modern CI/CD pipelines should be automatically deploying to your CF environment on commit. If you have multiple foundries, coordinating deploys across them can be a problem, especially if something fails. Deployadactyl is an open source tool for doing multi-cloud blue-green deploys with rollback to ensure zero-downtime deployments. Learn how Allstate uses this tool for thousands of deployments each month. Deployadactyl’s internal event model allowed us to add security and reporting checks into each deploy. This improved our compliance controls and lowered our security risks while simplifying the deployment process for our development teams. All this combines to allow our development teams to spend time focused on their product and less time focused on infrastructure.

Dynamic Application Availability - Jayson Go & Grant Deshazer, Charles Schwab
Knock, knock! Who’s there? Request. Request who? Requesting a route to my application, please!

Routing is no joke! We’re all good at building software and constructing cloud-native applications, but have you thought about the entry points to your application? It’s easy to forget about these requests hitting our apps when we’re focused on building our software, however, these very requests (and responses) hold interesting information. Dynamically routing requests to different versions of your application enables different deployment strategies such as Blue-Green deployments and canary releases. Want to learn more and see practical demos? If so, please join jgo and Grant as they leverage Spring Cloud Netflix and Netflix Zuul to enable these types of deployments in the cloud.

We’ll primarily talk about Blue-Green deployments and canary releases, and show demos of those two strategies. We'll show how to configure Zuul, write filters, and an environment leveraging eureka and configserver.

Jumpstart your Cloud Native development - Graham Charters, IBM UK Ltd
Developments in Java technologies and cross-language tools are enabling rapid development of cloud native applications. This session will cover the different tools and techniques available and how to make the most of these new technologies. We will start by examining what is desirable for a cloud native application, such as dev/prod parity, externalised configuration, dependency management and containerisation. We will discuss how these are addressed by tools and modern frameworks at each stage of the development lifecycle, from local development, through packaging and deployment.

Beginning with code generation, we will show some of the commonly used tools such as Yeoman, JHipster and Spring Initializr and how they can provide a starting point.

Moving on to development, we will discuss how to reach dev/prod parity using Docker whilst enabling rapid iteration of your application. We will also introduce the Open API specification and how it can be used to define and expose any external APIs.

Finally, with deployment, we will look at the packaging options provided by Spring and Microprofile and the composability options provided by applications servers such as Open Liberty and Wildfly Swarm. We will discuss the pros and cons of these different approaches and how they fit into a containerised environment.

A Event-Handling System for Serverless Platforms - Julian Skupnjak & Simon Moser, IBM
IoT devices are becoming ubiquitous in e.g car-, smarter home, and many other industries. Applications dealing with IoT devices need to react to events and serverless platforms are essentially designed for such workflows. More and more sensors are continuously sensing data, some – often the majority – of this data is more or less neglectable, and some of this data requires attention. The reception of an event on serverless platforms yields the execution of a (set of) function(s). The pricing model is activation based, i.e. the customer is only charged for code really running. As a conclusion, customers are charged for code activations based on irrelevant events.

In this talk, we will show a system build on top of Cloud Foundry, which brings together event management and serverless computing capabilities to do both: Filter (IoT) events and execute actions. The project was generally a PoC, which was implemented as microservice architecture with different technologies (e.g. Golang, Angular JS, NodeJS, Rabbit MQ, etc.). Its aim is to handle events, based on rules set by the user and trigger actions on a serverless platform for handled events only.
We will show our microservice architectural design and talk about problems we faced. Moreover, we will show a demonstration video of an end-to-end scenario using the event handling system.

Generic Config API: Beyond Cloud, Runtime, and CPI Configs - David Ansari, SAP SE
This talk starts by demystifying the existing cloud, runtime, and CPI conifg types and revealing weaknesses of their corresponding API endpoints.

We then present the new generic config API which not only unifies existing configs but, most notably, allows operators to upload any type of config to the BOSH director providing versioning, diffing and branching functionalities out-of-the-box.

For BOSH operators, these new config types enable unforeseeable uses cases. We present a couple of use cases which are already in the backlog and explain how operators can leverage the functionalities introduced by generic configs.

How CF Networking Could Solve Your Environment Specific Use Case - Konstantinos Karampogias, Swisscom
Very often, Cloud Foundry operators are facing a case which they can only solve in a way that is tightly connected to their internal infrastructure. Any feature request to integrate such environments-specific solutions will inevitably be rejected. In a situation like that, operators have to introduce a dirty workaround, which is not ideal. Adding a custom behavior by extending the network stack will be of great benefit.

In this talk, Konstantinos presents an extension to the network stack which addresses a known network limitation of the platform. The solution is leveraging the extensibility added by the CF Networking release and the plugin chaining, which is the latest feature of the Container Networking Interface (CNI) community. We will begin with a deep dive into the networking stack. A demo will follow that presents a modified Cloud Foundry that solves the external traffic identification problem. According to which, the space or the org of an application cannot be identified in the transport layer (TCP/UDP) outside the Diego Cell.

After this talk, the attendees will
- Demystify the Cloud Foundry network stack
- Learn how the CF-networking release enabled extensibility
- Be introduced to the latest feature of CNI
- Understand how several problems can be solved in the network stack

Cloud-Native Data: Getting to the “X” factors of Cloud Native Data - Dormain Drewitz & Paul Puckett, Pivotal, Stephen O’Grady, Redmonk, Mark Ardito, HCSC & Brian Dunlap, Southwest Airlines
Twelve-Factor App manifesto is arguably missing a key piece – data. There is no guidance for how to architect the data layer. Yet, we know how tremendously important data is to an application and an organization. We all have lots of data. What can we do to enable Cloud Native Data Manifesto to enable a DevOps model for data?

Discussions around the principles and the lack of proper data education is key to industry progress in being cloud native. If we can bridge this cloud native divide the possibilities for the enterprise are enormous. Those holding on to legacy applications due to massive data constraints could simplify and become cloud native.


Building on a panel held at SpringOne Platform 2017, this panel brings together perspectives from users (Timmy Richardson, Brian Dunlap and Mark Ardito), and industry observers (Steve O’Grady). Moderated by Dormain Drewitz, this panel will hone in on defining a set of “factors” for cloud-native data.

Rapidly Transform Legacy .NET Applications to Cloud Foundry - Alfus Inigo Jaganathan & Poornima Varadhan, Cognizant
Abstract
Legacy .Net applications adhere to different patterns from modern applications. Decomposing those to 12 factor environment is time consuming, error prone and often manual. In this talk we will demonstrate strategies, frameworks, libraries, tools and techniques applied to rapidly transform/re-platform these applications with the most relevant 12/15 factors.

Description
Creating 12 factor applications can be done in 2 ways that is green field development; or transformation of legacy applications (transforming larger Monoliths to Micro services Vs rewrite application with modernized architecture). The latter is prone to more challenges because of presence of legacy patterns that are considered as anti-patterns with today’s technology advancements.
Elaborating more on how to go about dealing with legacy transformations; the first and foremost simple step is to size the application. Classifying them as small, medium, large and x-large (anything beyond large) will help in determining the category / degree of transformation required. X-large applications are not recommended for replatforming. Factors like number of lines of code, complexity, interfaces etc. will help with determining the sizing.
Leveraging the existing tools and techniques created by pivotal, such as OKR, Event Storming, Boris, Snap, etc. will help to modernize larger monoliths (Reference SP1 2017) in converting them to micro-services based architecture with a mixture of relevant patterns. Likewise for the re-platforming of the application, leveraging Snap tool/technique helps with the detailed analysis of the application for performing lift & shift.
The rest of the talk will cover our experience with several application transformation that includes batch processing applications, ASP.Net web, UI and Web service applications which are bounded by the size / complexity factors. This will be supported with code snippets and demos as relevant.

Autoscaling Cloud Native Applications... with Math - Allan Espinosa, Bloomberg
Platforms like CloudFoundry and Kubernetes provide delightful APIs to show various statuses of our applications. From CPU, Load average, HTTP response times, etc. we all have what we need to make sure our app is running healthily.

When things are on fire, we Ops people twiddle some knobs like spin up more Pods to keep things going. We use mostly our experience and knowledge of the systems that we are running to know what to do.

However, if you look at everyday things like your airconditioners and thermostats, they don't have an Ops team that gets paged to set the correct level of the coolant to set your room to the right temperature. They use some math behind called *Control Theory* to keep your room's temperature stable. In this talk, I will show how we can use the same concepts to autoscale and manage the health of our applications on CloudFoundry and Kubernetes.
