Cloud Foundry Open Tour - A Developer Day for enterprise developers to learn about Open Source Platform-as-a-Service in the cloud. Cloud Foundry allows developers to deploy and scale applications in seconds without worrying about the infrastructure. Whether you are building enterprise Java applications, Ruby-based social media sites or mobile backend systems using Node.js, this special Developer Day is the fastest way to move to the cloud.

Close to 1000 people attended the Beijing Cloud Foundry Open Tour – WOW

Cloud Foundry – Open source cloud computing platform as a service (PaaS)

Deployment Portability – Example – you can write an app on Appfog, and then move it, redeploy it to Cloud Foundry or Stackato (without changing any code) and it will just work!

Micro Cloud Foundry – Now you can run a complete instance of Cloud Foundry on your own computer.

Mark Lucovsky – Wired article 

Cloud Foundry.com (Service) you can sign-up and use vs Cloud Foundry.org (open source project) build community around the project , code contributions  - main idea is to separate the running the code as a service vs code itself

Cloud Foundry Welcomes .NET Framework Community Contributions
