It is now more than 25 years since the Linux computer operating system, which is designed as open-source software, and its creator, Linus Torvalds, first appeared on the scene. Today, Linux software forms an integral part of the customised IT infrastructure of many eminent companies. The Linux Foundation is committed to creating sustainable ecological systems around open-source projects with the aim of speeding up technological developments and ensuring their faster commercial adoption. The Foundation not only makes the very latest information technology available but is also involved in implementing world-class events.
The Congress Center Basel (CCB) is proud to have been selected by Justine Friedman, Event Sourcing Specialist at the Linux Foundation, as an ideal event partner identifying with the high standards to which Linux aspires. On 11 and 12 October 2017, the Linux Cloud Foundry is coming to the CCB. Responsibility for staging this innovative event format lies with Deborah Giles and Vanessa Heric at Linux and Susanne Pfefferle as project manager at the CCB.
Cloud Foundry is an event format of the Linux Foundation that is held on a regular basis at different locations. These Linux Foundation events are the sole opportunity that companies have to meet up with those in charge of all the key open-source software projects in enterprise, networking, embedded, IoT and Cloud infrastructure.
The Foundry in Basel will be the leading event for professional app development. Participants will not only benefit from a transfer of knowledge but will also be able to actively engage in open-source development. Hence those attending the event will be both users and developers of the software at one and the same time.
Another special feature of the event is that childcare is being offered for the full duration of the meeting, while an activation and entertainment platform is being provided for the amusement of those present, which will similarly enable them to engage in networking.
