"Kube" your Enthusiasm: Bringing Cloud Foundry and Kubernetes Together with Project Eirini - Julz Friedman, IBM & Mario Nitchev, SAP
Is container scheduling commoditised yet?

The Eirini project (now an “official” incubator project in the Runtime PMC) is bringing pluggable container scheduling to the Cloud Foundry Application Runtime. In other words: the `cf push` developer experience we all love, with your choice of container orchestrator - including Kubernetes - under the covers.

This session introduces the Eirini project, talks through the reasons behind it, updates the audience on the latest progress (passing CATs! available in beta! ready to try out!) and tells you what it means for your developers (not much) and your operators (potentially, quite a lot!).

The speakers will also demo getting up and running with Eirini on Kubernetes using a single Helm chart. After this the audience - and their Kubernetes-loving friends and colleagues! - will be able to try out the `cf push` developer experience, going from code to first-class Deployments, Pods and Services in your existing Kubernetes cluster, all in a single command!

Cloud Native Buildpacks: A Paradigm Shift for Enterprise App Builds - Stephen Levine & Ben Hale, Pivotal Software, Inc.
The Cloud Native Buildpacks project was initiated by Pivotal and Heroku in January 2018 and joined the Cloud Native Sandbox in October 2018. The project aims to unify the buildpack ecosystems with a platform-to-buildpack contract that is well-defined and that incorporates learnings from maintaining production-grade buildpacks for years at both Pivotal and Heroku.

In this presentation, Stephen Levine and Ben Hale (CNB Project Owners at Pivotal) will discuss the features and benefits of Cloud Native Buildpacks in the context of the core CF Buildpacks and CF Java Buildpacks projects in the CF Extensions PMC. Topics will include using buildpacks outside of CFAR, and upcoming changes to the current Cloud Foundry buildpacks.

Cloud Foundry’s New .NET Capabilities - William Martin & Shawn Neal, Pivotal
.NET is undergoing a remarkable and unique transformation and is evolving at a rapid pace. As .NET continues to evolve, so too does Cloud Foundry to empower its cloud-native future.

In this session, William and Shawn will relate the new capabilities that the Garden Windows and BOSH Windows teams have built to deliver a first-class experience for .NET on Cloud Foundry and why they make CF the premier enterprise platform for cloud-native, modernized, and legacy .NET workloads.

William and Shawn will review the history of the product, the basics of deploying the new containerized Windows stack on CF, what happens to a .NET application when it is pushed to the Application Runtime, how to inspect it, and finally, what Windows Server Containers mean for .NET developers, enterprises, and the future of Cloud Foundry’s .NET and Windows capabilities, including Container Runtime.

How Did Our Garden Grow? Advances in the Cloud Foundry App Runtime's Container Engine - Giuseppe Capizzi, Pivotal & Yulia Nedyalkova, SAP
Garden (the Cloud Foundry App Runtime's container engine, optimised for PaaS workloads) saw awesome features bloom over the last year. This talk will help operators understand and leverage new security features such as rootless, and will introduce developers to the new and long-requested CPU Entitlements feature.

Garden is the first production runtime to support rootless mode; a wonderful security benefit. Leveraging containerd, Garden now uses more industry standards than ever, allowing for a much more familiar operator experience. New container CPU metrics enable operators and tooling to make better decisions about scaling; the speakers will demonstate concrete decision making based on reliable, consistent CPU metrics.

New Cloud Foundry Architectures and Features and their Performance Impact - Surya Duggirala, IBM
As Cloud Foundry architecture is evolving with design changes to CFCR, CFAR and routing layers, we are focusing on how these changes impact overall Cloud Foundry performance and scalability. As Cloud Foundry is working to embrace both Kubernetes and Istio service mesh while keeping its core strength of developer experience, it is important to understand how these integrations impact performance. At the same time, we need to understand the impact of new design features like C2C, OCI, Envoy sidecar process etc., on Cloud Foundry. This session gives an update on all the new design features and architectures from a performance point of view.
