Nominations are open for the first annual CDF Community Awards

By April 20, 2021April 21st, 2021Blog

The Continuous Delivery Foundation has a great community and at cdCon 2021 we will be giving away the first set of CDF Community Awards to recognize all the work that makes this community and the progress of Continuous Delivery possible.

The CDF 2021 award is a Klein bottle—a shape with no “inside” and “outside,” just one continuous surface—the perfect way to highlight the continuous mindset we embody here at the CD.Foundation. Here’s what the awards will look like this year!
