12:28 EDTGEGE launches cloud foundry ‘Industrial Dojo’
GE Software announced its ‘Industrial Dojo,’ in collaboration with the Cloud Foundry Foundation, to strengthen its efforts to solve the world’s biggest industrial challenges. The Cloud Foundry Dojo program allows software developers to immerse themselves in open source projects to quickly learn the inner workings of the core technology and the unique agile development environment, as well as recommended methodologies for contributing code. GE also announced it will work with the Cloud Foundry community to develop and contribute open source code to the Cloud Foundry Foundation that will route all industrial messaging protocols.

Through this program, GE is bolstering its commitment to open source development and Cloud Foundry, and ultimately promoting the next wave of industrial innovation. Also announced, GE will drive, in collaboration with Pivotal, creation of a “TCP Router” to direct non-HTTP protocols and better equip Cloud Foundry to connect industrial machines with IT networks.
