Silicon Valley Code Camp : October 11th and 12th 2014
A self-proclaimed propeller head, Cornelia Davis is Director of Platform Engineering in the Cloud Foundry team at Pivotal, where she helps customers and partners develop and execute on their cloud platform strategies. Fundamentally responsible for making developers successful with the Cloud Foundry PaaS, you can generally find her knee deep in the (OSS) code base, writing apps and deploying them onto the PaaS, teaching at a whiteboard, presenting at conferences and passionately driving new features into the product.
When not doing those things you can find her on the yoga mat or in the kitchen.
You might have heard that software is eating the world; in every industry enterprises are being challenged to bring software to their consumers faster, more frequently and with insanely great user experiences. Cloud Foundry, the leading (open source) Platform as a Service (PaaS), is designed to remove friction from the traditional application lifecycle, from dev all the way through production. At the core it exposes application and services “dial tone”, rather than infrastructure “dial tone”, scoping a broad set of capabilities such as autoscaling, dynamic routing, logging, monitoring, health management, and more, around the application. Light on slides and heavy on demo, in this session we’ll share what motivates the direction of the project, and show you how easy it is to write applications for and deploy them into this cloud runtime.
The Spring Trader application was debuted at Spring One in 2012 and presented an application that demonstrates a multitude of vFabric components working together – tcServer, RabbitMQ, SQLFire and Gemfire. In this session we will take that application and make (a few) modifications (mostly to config) to get it running on the same components in the cloud, specifically on the Cloud Foundry PaaS. We’ll show you how to use the Spring Cloud project to configure the deployment, how to leverage a cloud services catalog, how to implement a cross-site scripting solution (and why), how to do session state caching and we’ll discuss (the dangers of) auto reconfiguration. If you bring a laptop you can have your own instance of the app running by end of session.
