Cloud Foundry Summit Goes Global

Cloud Foundry Foundation Announces European Summit; Expands Summit Series to Advance Open Source Cloud Native Application Platform Adoption Worldwide

SAN FRANCISCO, CA and BERLIN, GERMANY--(Marketwired - Aug 12, 2015) - Cloud Foundry Foundation, home of the leading open source cloud native application platform, today announced its first European Summit, November 2-3 in Berlin. It's the first in an annual series of international Cloud Foundry Summits including future expansion into Asia Pacific.

"Continuous innovation is a global movement," said Cloud Foundry CEO Sam Ramji. "In Europe and in Asia Pacific, we've seen significant adoption and interest in Cloud Foundry. It's a perfect time to bring this community together and stoke that fire -- sharing what we've learned, supporting broader adoption and encouraging collaboration."

Registration and a speakers call for papers are both open for the Berlin event. Hundreds of application developers, IT operations experts, technical managers, business leaders, service providers and project contributors are expected to attend. Similar to this spring's Cloud Foundry Summit North America, which hosted a standing-room only crowd, Summit attendees in Berlin will collaborate with peers, gain first hand access to Cloud Foundry roadmaps, training and tutorials, and see how companies like Axel Springer, Fjord IT, Swisscom and SAP are using Cloud Foundry to support continuous innovation, unleash developers and deliver application portability. Attendees will leave with a clear understanding of microservices, containers, and cloud native application platforms, and how to apply these to the needs of the business.

Keynote speakers and the conference schedule will be announced in October. For more information about Cloud Foundry Summit Europe including sponsorship opportunities visit http://berlin2015.cfsummit.com.
