Platforms as Contracts



John Feminella talks about how Platforms like Pivotal Cloud Foundry (PCF) can be viewed as contracts between applications and the people who build, operate, and deploy them. He examines the ways in which these contracts manifest themselves in different platforms, the kinds of contracts that exist in PCF, and how to assess whether a given platform makes a good tradeoff.


John Feminella is a technical advisor for Pivotal, where he works on building things that make deploying, delivering, and constructing software better. He recently co-founded UpHex, a start-up providing analytics management for businesses. He is the author of several research papers and white papers on wireless sensor networks, cloud-based infrastructure, and software engineering.
