IBM announces new Cloud Foundry Dojo
Author: Dr. Angel Diaz
One of the most compelling aspects of open technology development is the concept of a growing ecosystem of developers to drive rapid technology innovation – by and for the whole community. Developers helping developers means that the open code base grows at accelerated pace to the benefit of all adopters.
The Cloud Foundry Foundation has a uniquely creative program to support growth of Cloud Foundry developer skills through its Cloud Foundry’s “Dojo” program where programmers are paired in an intense 6 week program. Dojo graduates leave the program well prepared to contribute to growth of the code base, become core contributors and in turn help train newer developers.
At IBM, we love this concept so much that we’re pleased to announce the first IBM Cloud Foundry Dojo in RTP, NC. The IBM Cloud Foundry Dojo will be a physical place open to all developers where IBM will help accelerate skills on the Cloud Foundry Code base and mentor developers to dramatically increase the number of code committers to Cloud Foundry.
Because IBM already has 12 Dojo graduates on its team as well as a dedicated team of 9 full time developers to work solely on Cloud Foundry code contributions, the team is excited to give back to the community by supporting the ever expanding community of dojo graduates.
