A Practical Guide to Approach MicroService (MSA) Routing Tier for a Smooth Sail - Dilleswara Anupoju, Comcast
What’s the real challenge with the cloud-native apps (aka MSA -micro-services architecture) these days? The development & deployment of cloud-native /containerized apps is well covered with PaaS offerings such as cloud foundry and/or Kubernetes. These platforms enabled proliferation of these apps/services at a rate that it has reached a point, where the service discovery, routing has become a mesh(mess) of communication links; and yes we have been through asynchronous messaging models ESB, API Gateways, Edge proxies as well.

In this talk Dill Anupoju would like to present some of the challenges and key design factors to consider while building MSA and how they interact across multi-cloud/platforms environments; though there is no one solution that fits all.

Panel: Cloud Foundry – A Kubernetes Serving Kitchen - Bernd Krannich, SAP SE; Dieu Cao, VMWare; Jeff Hobbs, SUSE; Simon Moser, IBM; and Moderated by Daniel Jones, EngineerBetter
The re-platforming of Cloud Foundry onto Kubernetes is in full swing. Eirini, Quarks, kubecf, cf-for-k8s are all projects in that space, addressing different aspects of a Cloud Foundry to Kubernetes integration. In the latest sequel to earlier panel discussions during Cloud Foundry summits (e.g. “Cloud Foundry Test Kitchen” – https://youtu.be/v9aUSiZn6-Y), representatives of major companies in the Cloud Foundry ecosystem will talk about their view on the status quo, what’s ahead in terms of development in Cloud Foundry components, how the above-mentioned projects relate and what the move to Kubernetes as a basis means for consumers of the Cloud Foundry platform.

Data Service Automation for Cloud Foundry on Kubernetes - Julian Fischer, anynines GmbH
Running Cloud Foundry on Kubernetes implies that the lifecycle management tool BOSH becomes obsolete. A reason to look at the future of data service automation for Cloud Foundry. In this session you will learn how the entire lifecycle of on-demand provisioning data services can be automated to serve thousands of data service instances of various types. An open source data service framework covering large swathes of the lifecycle automation will be drafted. See how existing technologies such as Operators and Helm can be of use. Furthermore see how the integration with both Kubernetes CRDs and the Open Service Broker API can be combined. At the end of this session you will have gained a conceptual understanding of how to automate stateful workloads for future Cloud Foundry environments.

Is Your Developer Experience COVID-Immune? - Dormain Drewitz, VMware
Modernizing applications for faster delivery cycles has long been a desire for organizations. But achieving that outcome is complicated, so other work takes priority. Years go by and the pain of maintaining and updating code lingers.

Then Spring 2020 happened. Suddenly, delivering new experiences digitally became the *only* way to reach customers. And competitors that moved faster were taking share in bigger chunks.
In this talk, you’ll learn how COVID-19 has been a crucible moment for companies that have invested in developer experience. From healthcare to retail to finance, the ability to deliver software quickly with Cloud Foundry has separated the digitally prepared from the digital laggards.

A Bit about Cloud Foundry, A Byte About Eirini - Julz Skupnjak, IBM & Georgi Dankov, SAP
The Eirini project is bringing Kubernetes as a container scheduler to the Cloud Foundry Application Runtime. In other words: the `cf push` developer experience we all love, with the most popular container orchestrator under the covers.

This session takes you on a whirlwind tour of the why and how of eirini. What is the latest state (v1.0+ released, v3 support, and more), how can you use it, what are we working on next.

And if you want to know how you get the latest and greatest Eirini running on your Kubernetes cluster, come and join the talk. Spoiler alert: The latest Eirini is now avaialbe on KubeCF and CF-for-K8s.
