Cloud Native Roadshow
Learn how Pivotal delivers cloud native software.

This program walks through ‘why,’ ‘what’ and ‘how.’ We’ll outline the capabilities and outcomes of a cloud native software organization, building up from infrastructure automation and container orchestration to lifecycle management and application frameworks.

Pivotal will share how culture and technology integrate to reinforce each other, using modern tools and processes to build Microservices, promote DevOps, and facilitate Continuous Delivery.

The day will open with an overview of state of the art modern software delivery, connecting how Pivotal got here to where we are going with the technology, people and process. This will be followed by a technical walk through of Pivotal Cloud Foundry, Spring Boot, Spring Cloud, and Spring Cloud Data Flow. You will see first-hand how the platform and application framework come together to boost developer productivity by streamlining the workflow so they can focus on adding value.

You’ll understand the speed and ease of deploying applications on Pivotal Cloud Foundry and the power and flexibility provided by Spring’s framework to create applications.

We’ll share the basic building blocks and use them to build more complex cloud native architectures leveraging service discovery and circuit breakers from Spring Cloud NetflixOSS and integrate a number of advanced data capabilities with Spring Cloud Data Flow. You’ll leave understanding how we built this upon a foundation of Open Source Cloud Foundry and Spring, with working examples and content for future reference.

These sessions will have technical depth, but the presentations should be conceptually accessible to anyone who is involved or has a stake in delivering software.

The agenda is meant to fit your needs and time availability. Come for the first half and see how Pivotal Cloud Foundry and Spring Boot can be brought together to create a continuous delivery pipeline. Stay for the second half and learn about the power of Spring Cloud to build microservice architectures and data analytics.
