Come and join Alex where you’ll learn exactly what the Open Service Broker API specification is, explore its history, how the cross-ecosystem collaboration on the API specification is happening and especially how you can offer services to Cloud Foundry and Kubernetes platform at this month muCon Bytes!
In a digital world, widely adopted and easy to use APIs are the cornerstone of collaboration and interoperability. As Cloud technologies mature and become commonplace, the absence of standards surfaces challenges in the implementation of solutions by Cloud vendors, service providers and end users. Building on top of the experience of Cloud Foundry's Service Broker API, the Open Service Broker API working group brings together experts from Google, RedHat, Pivotal, SAP and IBM. The Open Service Broker API is an industry-driven, collaborative effort to demolish barriers in the adoption of Cloud Native services, with a user-centric approach focused on delivering features based exclusively in real world use cases
Alex is a Product Manager for the Pivotal Cloud Foundry platform and is focused on enabling multi-cloud services using Cloud Foundry and BOSH.
