Deep Dive with KubeCF - Thulio Ferraz Assis, SUSE & Enrique Encalada, IBM
KubeCF, an open-source distribution of the Cloud Foundry Application Runtime (CFAR), aims to provide developers and enterprises with the best of two worlds, Kubernetes and Cloud Foundry, throughout a made easy approach.

With KubeCF, users can continue focusing on their business logic development, while running on a container-native landscape, reducing the hassle of doing this from the ground up in Kubernetes. Kubernetes was never built to be a comprehensive platform; technologies like KubeCF can complement Kubernetes.

In this talk, Thulio and Enrique will showcase how KubeCF is the bridge that gets us from BOSH releases for VMs to a Kubernetes-native PaaS. You will learn how to use KubeCF on any local development, and get some insights and lessons learned since its inception.

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.

CRD-ifying Cloud Foundry for Kubernetes - Angela Chin & Connor Braa, VMware
Over the past year, there has been major effort invested in re-platforming Cloud Foundry to run on Kubernetes. As part of this re-architecture, the idea of utilizing Custom Resource Definitions (CRDs) has come to the forefront of discussion.

In this session, Angela and Connor will examine why CRDs are so compelling to use as a core component of the future cf-for-k8s. We will highlight the benefits of a CRD-centric approach for users, application developers, and contributors and offer some thoughts on what a CRD-centric cf-for-k8s might look like. Attendees should leave with a strong understanding of why and how they might utilize CRDs.

Paketo Buildpacks, From Source Code to Application Images - Daniel Thornton, VMWare
As CF for Kubernetes continues to grow, the process for pushing source code to production will still be as simple as running 'cf push'. But, the build path that your application travels from source to running container has changed. The buildpacks responsible for adding the dependencies an application needs have been completely reimagined.

Building on top of the experience building and maintaining Cloud Foundry Buildpacks comes the
Paketo Project. It aims to resolve the technical and organizational issues that affected the old CloudFoundry Buildpacks.

This talk will address how Paketo Buildpacks reshape the buildpack experience to be modular, extensible and approachable.

Bringing the Simplicity of "cf map-route" to Kubernetes - Tim Downey & Nitya Dhanushkodi, VMware
Cloud Foundry for Kubernetes seeks to bring the simple, self-service APIs of Cloud Foundry to the powerful, but complicated world of Kubernetes. By bringing the “cf map-route” experience to Kubernetes, developers can focus on core application business logic instead of complex Kubernetes networking configuration.

In this session, Tim and Nitya will cover the design decisions, implementation, and extensibility of the new networking tier in CF for Kubernetes. They will demonstrate how CF for Kubernetes leverages Istio service mesh and Kubernetes networking features to enhance the platform. They will also present a new Kubernetes custom resource and controller: the CF Route CRD and RouteController. The CF Route CRD and RouteController lend future extensibility to the networking tier by opening up potential for additional control planes and pluggable ingress implementations in the future.

What's New for Services on the CF API V3? - Felisia Martini & Derik Evangelista, VMware
The services endpoints on the Cloud Controller API have been a general source of pain for consumers. Some of the problems with the V2 implementation include: needing several requests to get basic information about a service or service instance, multiple endpoints to manage the same resource, leaking abstractions between the API and the Service Broker, and lack of features like blocking during service instance creation. This contributes to frustrate not only API consumers but also CLI/GUI users.

The SAPI team is working on improving many aspects of the services API with V3 of the cloud controller API. The new services endpoints provide much more flexibility and control over the workflows available for service offerings and service instance management. Many of these features and improvements are already available as experimental APIs on recent versions of Cloud Foundry.
