More than 1,000 enterprise developers, architects, engineers and executives from around the world are expected to attend the Basel Summit. Attendees will learn Cloud Foundry from those who build it and use it every day. They will join other developers, end users and CIOs to gain first-hand access to Cloud Foundry roadmaps, training and tutorials, and to see how others are using Cloud Foundry to support continuous innovation and application portability.

        diversity and inclusivity initiatives in the open source and Cloud
        Foundry communities.

            to create an open and inclusive community.
    --  Abby Kearns, Executive Director of Cloud Foundry Foundation, has spent
        nearly 20 years in the technology industry in a career that spans
        product marketing, product management and consulting across Fortune 500
        companies and startups alike. She will discuss the cloud-native
        explosion, why it matters to the enterprise and the role that open
        source software, platforms, and ecosystems play in developing software
        at scale.
    --  Florian Müller, Technical Lead Platform Foundation & Services for SAP
        Cloud Platform, is a member of the Open Service Broker API PMC and
        responsible for OSB related activities at SAP. He will do a demo of the
        Peripli Project, a project led by SAP with support from Google, IBM,
