CDF Webcast : End of Year Summary

By December 9, 2020December 14th, 2020Blog

Hello CDF Community, 

The beginning of 2020, well, began like most past years. For me, it was making a list of personal and professional goals that I wanted to accomplish throughout the year. However, I never expected that less than a quarter into the year, I would be making a hard left turn into my house for shelter in place. After realizing that none of those goals would be achieved as the entire world was just sent to their rooms without dessert indefinitely. I tried to figure out how to continue to reach our CDF friends and community members virtually. This led to the creation of the podcast, cdCon virtual, and webcast program. 

For those of you that are not familiar with the CDF Community Ambassador & Member Webcasts Series, it provides a cost-effective way to educate the community about CD and DevOps trends and open source technologies. Webcasts are offered to members, CDF incubating and graduated projects, CDF Ambassadors, and CDF Special Interest Groups (SIGs). 

The webcast had a great inaugural year delivering 12 episodes, collaborating with over 9 companies, and hosting 11 guest speakers. We are so excited about the growth of the program and future partnerships with our members.
