More than 600 businesses, developers and vendors from across Europe are gathering to share best practices and hear senior executives discuss how Cloud Foundry has helped them build and deploy robust, resilient and flexible cloud native applications across multiple cloud platforms at the Cloud Foundry Summit. This year's Emcee will be Amy Frampton, Director of Product Marketing at HPE Cloud.

"Excitement is growing -- as is the agenda for the European Summit," said Sam Ramji, CEO of Cloud Foundry Foundation. "This event was built specifically for companies interested in increasing the velocity of application development or building cloud native applications at scale."

Summit attendees will collaborate with peers, meet the developers behind Cloud Foundry and discuss the roadmap for the fastest growing multi-cloud platform. Developers can participate in two full days of training on microservices and IoT development in a continuous delivery environment, and see how others are leveraging multi-cloud models to deliver apps faster than ever before. The Summit will also provide attendees insight on how to get started with Cloud Foundry and make an impact on the project.

There will be three pre-conference training sessions from which attendees can choose:

  • Cloud Foundry for Beginners
  • Microservices on Cloud Foundry
  • Operating a Platform

Cloud Foundry is collectively developed by Cisco, EMC, Hewlett Packard Enterprise, IBM, Pivotal, SAP and leaders in manufacturing, telecommunication, and financial services.
