Developer Guide

Page last updated:

This guide provides instructions for deploying, running, and managing apps and services with Cloud Foundry.


Developing, running, and managing apps on Cloud Foundry may include:

  • Deploying and scaling apps with diverse languages, frameworks, and dependencies

  • Finding software services in the services marketplace, such as databases, email, or message servers

  • Creating your own Cloud Foundry service based on an external server

  • Creating service instances and binding them to your apps

  • Streaming app logs to an external log management service

  • Troubleshooting app deployment and health

If you do these things, you are a Cloud Foundry developer, and the contents of this guide are for you.

To deploy a local Cloud Foundry environment for experimentation or debugging purposes, you can use CF Dev. For more information, see CF Dev.
