Come join an enthusiastic bunch of Cloud Foundry developers in this second annual Europe Summit Hackathon!  Bring your ideas and energy as we build interesting prototypes to extend CF functionality where it has never gone before.  Come with a team or come on your own and find a team during the event. Top three teams get awesome prizes and first place winners will be announced on stage during the Thursday morning keynotes.  This is a free event.

Topics: Any project that extends and enhances CF in an interesting way.  This could include: new CLI plugins, new buildpacks, additional multi-cloud capabilities via BOSH CPIs, innovative services or marketplace capabilities, reusing a Cloud Foundry component in a unique way, etc.  The overall goal here is to build on Cloud Foundry itself, not to build applications that run on Cloud Foundry.

Following the episode will be a panel moderated by Jennifer Cloer with women in the community. The audience will be given the opportunity to participate as well.
