HashiCorp Vault in Cloud Foundry environment

In this blog post, we will describe how you could configure HashiCorp Vault in a Cloud Foundry environment.

They also act on requests from the marketplace for provisioning, binding, unbinding, and de-provisioning service instances.

QCON London 2017

I found this experience really nice – to be able to get some insights on how people have solved big issues and how they got pwned.  What is more, it was good to see that I am personally going in the right direction (or at least, let’s say, getting on the trends)

      • NodeJS

I chose to follow two main paths, with some extra things from here and there: Machine Learning/Data science, Microservices, and let’s call it “miscellaneous”. Below, an overview of the most interesting things:
