⚠️ Applications are now closed.

We are excited to announce that application for the Continuous Delivery Foundation (CDF) Ambassador Program for 2024 is now open. This program has been instrumental in fostering collaboration, progressive conversations, and inviting community contributions to various initiatives for Continuous Delivery. 

What is the Ambassador Program?

For some context, the CDF Ambassador Program is an initiative to enable Continuous Delivery Leadership and grow the CDF through engagement, outreach, and adoption of open source CD software practices, projects, and tools. 

The call for ambassadors attracted top talent from various demographic locations, industry segments, and diverse backgrounds. 

2024 Cohort

This year, we are excited to add new ambassadors to our cohort to ensure that it’s filled with active and fully engaged, contributing members of the CDF community, expanding our geographical reach, and diversified perspective from various projects, SIGs, and cross-contributors from other communities. 

The ambassadors will help steer the tactical roadmap for the next four quarters and work closely with the co-ambassadors and various other strategic CDF engagements.

The Ambassador Program is open to applicants who:

  • Engage with the end user ecosystem and drive continuous delivery adoption.
  • Cultivate growth and adoption of CD Foundation open source projects portfolio.
  • Contribute actively to a community with experience in mentoring, creating content, and speaking at events on Continuous Delivery.
  • Willing to contribute to the CD Foundation projects, and other related initiatives.

*Keeping in view the interest and enthusiasm of the 2023 ambassadors cohort, we have decided to extend their tenure to another year through reapplication. Please note that past contributions will be taken into account while reviewing reapplications and extending tenures for the current ambassadors.

Lastly, we would like to thank all the active ambassadors for their contributions.

We’re looking forward to having new and returning ambassadors, whose term will begin in April 2023.
