A lot has happened at the Continuous Delivery Foundation (CDF) in 2021! Here are some quick highlights; we’ll dive into more of what we’ve done and in greater detail in our Annual Report coming in January.
State of Continuous Delivery Report Series
We launched a new State of Continuous Delivery Report Series to provide vendor-neutral data on key DevOps and development metrics showing where continuous delivery stands in 2021 and beyond.
This fall, Kara de la Marck worked with the community to revamp the CDF Landscape. They added too many new projects to count!
Visit the Landscape page to interact with it and to add your project.
This year, we welcomed Kara de la Marck and said goodbye to Jacqueline Salinas. We’ll miss you, Jacque!
