The integration of Cloud Foundry and Kubernetes was one of the major topics during the Cloud Foundry Summits 2018 in Boston and Basel. Earlier panel discussions there created quite some interest: “Cloud Foundry and Kubernetes - Will it blend?” (http://sched.co/DdZr, https://youtu.be/4ow7IumxkOM) and "Cloud Foundry and Kubernetes - Did it blend?" (https://sched.co/FRyD, https://youtu.be/QkQe3354Y6Q)

In a sequel to these panel discussions, representatives of major companies in the Cloud Foundry ecosystem will reconvene to assess the status of an integration between Cloud Foundry and Kubernetes, the progress that has been made since the CF Summits Boston and Basel, and provide updates to the visions these companies have for a future of Cloud Foundry and Kubernetes.
