Happy New Year everyone! We are so excited to kick off 2020. We are quickly approaching our first birthday this March, which is a huge milestone for the foundation. 

The CD Foundation appreciates all of the hard work and contribution from the community in 2019, without the collaboration and contributions from you it would have been very challenging to get to the end of Year 1. 

As we mature and grow we want to ensure that collaborating with us is easy. We realized that we needed to have a more streamlined process for collecting & publishing content. Here’s information on how to submit your blogs, case studies, PR/News, Announcements, and Meetups to the marketing folks at the CD Foundation. Let’s make some magic happen this 2020!

Blogs

We get it… you don’t always have the time to run a meetup or travel to a conference or summit. We encourage the community to participate in other ways such as submitting written content. We would love to hear from you. Here’s how to submit your blog in 3 easy steps:

1.     Select your topic and write your blog! Pro tip: Good topics are ones that the community has asked for like project milestones, project roadmap announcements, recaps of community events & conference attendance, etc.

2.     Submit your blog through our form: https://cd.foundation/cdf-blog-submission-form/ Pro tip: Make sure you give us permission to see your shared doc!

3.     Once we receive your submission we will send over a confirmation email and provide you a publishing date, edits & feedback, and we will also collaborate on creating some social media posts to promote your blog through the CD Foundation’s social channels.

Case Studies

Working on something cool? Do you have content that was already published and can get recycled through the CDF as a case study? Get in touch with us and let’s collaborate on a case study. Kick off a conversation with me and schedule some time to chat:  

1.     Drop us a line and set up a 30 min call through my calendly link here: https://calendly.com/jsalinas-cdf and email me at jsalinas@cd.foundation.

PR/News/Announcements

If you are speaking at an event on behalf of the CD Foundation, speaking about CI/CD technologies, recently interviewed, or know of an article that will be published soon? Let us know and we will publish this on our website and social channels. Please get Jesse Casman involved as he is our PR guru.
