We use some of the custom buildpacks provided by the Cloud Foundry community and they are all compatible with IBM Cloud Foundry. By using that, we can develop our applications normally and automate the deployment process with our build tools.

We have integrated IBM Cloud Foundry into our CI/CD process. When our build server has built our code base, it will automatically promote the artifacts through the various environments, perform tests, and finally make it publicly available. The entire process is automated and will stop and alert the appropriate personnel if failure occurs. This has dramatically reduced the overhead and complexity for our team to promote code changes from development to production.

Firm I work with have benefited greatly from the varieties of programming language for easy automating of development process, which you can choose the option of setting up your new project either within your IBM Cloud foundry account, clicking on create new instance, [or] selecting SDK packages which is compatible with your project. If its Flask application you want to push to cloud, you will select Python SDk. For NodeJs or single page Javascript application, you need to select NodeJs SDK. This flexibility in programming language avails us opportunity to pick old and new project in two core major languages.

IBM cloud foundry provides runtimes for a range of programming languages which allows for automating much of the developoment process. Yes, we have benefited from the runtimes provided in the platform. We have leveraged different runtimes python, nodejs, java, go. The buildpacks help with implementing the applications on different runtimes.

We have found the automation to be OK, but not great. We have been able to deploy lots of different types of apps. but have struggled to maintain them in production due to reliability and outages. the cost versus reliability was prohibitive. Automation is nice when it works. However, if you have to spend a lot of time troubleshooting what went wrong and it turns out it is just cloud Foundry failing for no apparent reason, well it is just a waste of time.
