We'll respond shortly.
At Pivotal, diversity is something we view as important, recognizing that diverse teams build better results. We also realize that it takes work and will not happen without facilitation. Pivotal platform engineer, Jeenal Shah shares a call to action for women to join her at the next free gateway event, Pivotal Cloud Foundry Industry Day, to become part of the future of modern software development and operations–one that we all aspire to have as more inclusive and diverse.
System administrators are rethinking their approach to manage large scale infrastructure. Previously, they spent an enormous amount of energy working to incrementally update machines and software. Many vendors have rallied around an idea that promises to transform the nature of infrastructure management—immutable infrastructure. To support this ideal, Pivotal created BOSH: an open source tool for release engineering, deployment, lifecycle management, and monitoring of distributed systems. BOSH has long helped Linux sysadmins achieve infrastructure immutability—and Windows administrators will soon be able to leverage BOSH to automate infrastructure management at scale.
Blockchain is considered one of the most potentially disruptive technologies to hit the financial services industry, but did you know that it can be applied beyond cryptocurrencies? In this post, one of Pivotal’s Platform Engineers, Jared Gordon, explains how blockchain architectures can run on Pivotal Cloud Foundry, provides demo apps and code downloads, and then suggests practical uses for blockchain apps which offer operational support to Cloud Foundry itself.
SpringOne Platform is the story of how a Spring development community recharged and catalyzed the enterprise, and found a partner to scale that value, through the Cloud Foundry community. As we close out the event today, Pivotal’s Stephen Casale recaps some powerful takeaways from keynote speakers Rob Mee and Adrian Cockroft, noteworthy tweets, blogs and even some books.
Day 3 kicked off with Sam Ramji, who oversees the gestalt that is the open source Cloud Foundry Foundation—where software choice and freedom are safe, and where inclusion, participation, and accountability keep it that way. Day 3 also leaned more heavily into Spring—all grown-up and with new bounce in its step through the enterprise. We offer the day's highlights...
Whether it was a “mono-horrific architecture”, how “silos are for grain”, or “cowboyism” development, the monolith took a beating today at SpringOne Platform. The rigid stack may have been loosened by open source, the titles of those who administer it may have changed, but the monolith and its culture of protection persist. Today's recap focuses on how teams who run them are trying—and succeeding—to change it. Day 2 was about taking risk, epiphanies, and building on breakthroughs. Stay tuned each day as we summarize keynotes, news and photos, facts, and tweets of note.
Today, over 2,000 faithful from more than 400 companies large and small have come together on the hot-baked plains of Las Vegas, for SpringOne Platform. They are developer and operator types, consultants and designers, and business leaders pulling their teams and companies through a transformation that starts with software and continues through organizations and markets. Today was a starting of the engines: the opening unconference on anything Pivotal Cloud Foundry; concentrated hands-on workshops from Pivotal Education; lightening talks, and more. The conversation begins in earnest tomorrow. We'll be summarizing keynotes here each day, include other news and photos, facts, and tweets of note.
Over the past half century or so, the art of developing software has elevated itself to a point where how well you develop software quite literally can make or break you in a market. At Pivotal, we developed this edu-taining quiz to test organizations on how fluent they are in modern development techniques, and even provided a handy list of resources to help you learn about areas you may not have embraced yet.
With the help of Pivotal, Ford Motor Company is reinventing itself as a software startup. In this post, we explain the trends behind drastic change in the automotive and manufacturing industries. We also highlight key elements of Ford’s talk at the recent Cloud Foundry Summit titled, “Ford Invests in Making Customer Experience as Strong as Its Vehicles with FordPass,” where they explain how Pivotal Labs and Pivotal Cloud Foundry are powering this transition alongside the support of Microsoft Azure’s infrastructure.
In this post, our own Richard Seroter, Senior Director of Product and 9-time Microsoft MVP, explains one of the most important reasons that virtually all software apps should run on Pivotal Cloud Foundry. If we look at six major issues facing continuous deployment, we can see how Cloud Foundry moves past them and helps us deploy apps in seconds instead of weeks. In other words, Cloud Foundry can help us get from “code complete” to “live in production” in a mere fraction of the time spent on traditional approaches. This is huge.
