Cloud Foundry: It's the End of the Cloud as We Know It

A session at Nashville JUG: Cloud Foundry: It's the End of the Cloud as We Know It

In recent years, the cloud has gone from Larry Ellison's "Maybe I'm an idiot, but I have no idea what anyone is talking about," to Microsoft's "TO THE CLOUD!" to a central part of many companies IT strategy. At the same time, the way that we consume the cloud has continued to evolve. Many of today's cloud efforts revolve around utilization of various "infrastructure as code" products (e.g. Puppet and Chef) and homegrown automation to create deployment pipelines. When we start at this level, we often end up reinventing many of the same wheels as we climb the abstraction ladder.

Platform as a Service (PaaS) offerings are positioned to allow developers (and operators) to start climbing the abstraction ladder from a higher rung, shifting the model from machine-centric deployment to application-centric deployment. This session will focus on life as an application developer using Cloud Foundry as a PaaS, with demos using Pivotal's Hosted CF at http://run.pivotal.io.
