Welcome to another installation of This Week in Spring! This week I'm in Sofia, Bulgaria for one of my favorite shows, the epic Java2Days event!
Last week saw the release (finally!) of Pivotal Cloud Foundry 1.6, which contains more than a year and half of highly anticipated features and heavy lifting. The new release includes, among many other things, support for platform-managed GitLab, JFrog Artifactory, and CloudBees Jenkins CI; support for microservices infrastructure including the Spring Cloud Config Server, and Spring Cloud Eureka; and support for Docker container images and .NET applications; and support for running on Microsoft Azure. This release is packed with all sorts of features optimized for the continuous and safe delivery of software into production and I wholeheartedly encourage you to take a look at it for your environment. PCF is based on Cloud Foundry. Cloud Foundry is a platform-as-a-service that stands up services and integrations to support developing and deploying applications in a predictable, safe way. It is the epitome of a high performing software organization and their virtues.
As usual, we've got a lot to cover so let's get to it!
