Continuous Delivery Foundation (CDF) held its first-ever, in-person cdCon on June 7-8 in Austin, Texas co-located with OpenJS World. The event was full of excitement and great moments since the attendees had a chance to meet their fellow community members—with whom they have been collaborating for a long time—in person.
The event was full of great keynotes and sessions. In addition to the main event, projects that are part of CDF, CDEvents, Jenkins, Tekton, Jenkins X and Shipwright, held community summits, discussing the ongoing and upcoming work the projects are working with and how they can help organizations to embrace CD and DevOps.
In addition to the main event and project summits, the hallway track was busy as well and there were few topics most of the attendees talked about such as Interoperability in CI/CD, Software Supply Chain, and Best Practices in CD. This was a great acknowledgement of the work done by the various groups within the CDF and as well as the projects under its umbrella. As we all know, CI/CD practitioners from various industries as well as contributors and maintainers of most widely used CI/CD projects within the ecosystem are part of our community. This makes us believe that we as CDF Community have a great future ahead of us with lots of opportunities to improve the state of CD!
We also received great feedback about cdCon and already started addressing them within CDF so please keep an eye on CDF Website and social media for updates. We will start reaching out to our communities soon and invite them to work with us to make our upcoming events even better!
