Community growth in 2020 has been extremely strong across the board.
Is DevOps a lifejacket in times of crisis or does crisis mode accelerate DevOps?
Open source community veteran to take on new leadership position for CD Foundation, transitioning to working full-time with the Linux Foundation.
The Continuous Delivery Foundation (CDF) announced today that the open source Jenkins continuous integration/continuous delivery (CI/CD) has officially graduated.
The Continuous Delivery Foundation (CDF) announced that Jenkins is the first project to graduate by demonstrating growing adoption, an open governance process, feature maturity, and a strong commitment to community, sustainability, and inclusivity.
The open source Jenkins CI/CD project gains more community participation and a roadmap for future improvements.
The open source Jenkins continuous integration/continuous delivery (CI/CD) project on Aug. 4 became the first project to graduate from the Continuous Delivery (CD) Foundation.
Tracy Miranda, board chair, Continuous Delivery Foundation (CDF), and Lachlan Donald, CEO, Buildkite, share what they believe the pressing concerns are for CI/CD in 2020.
At an online Spinnaker Live event today, the Continuous Delivery (CD) Foundation revealed the open source CD platform is gaining significant momentum since being contributed by Netflix late last year.
There were on average 399 merged pull Spinnaker requests a month in the first quarter of 2020. A total of 1,183 contributors participated in the project in the last year, with 40% of those contributors participating in the first quarter. Since the first quarter, the project has added at least two new contributors a week.
Rosalind Benoit, chair of the CD Foundation Outreach Committee and director of community at Armory, a provider of an enterprise edition of Spinnaker, said the bulk of the increased contributions to Spinnaker are coming from Amazon Web Services (AWS), which the cloud service provider is already employing to orchestrate software delivery across multiple platforms.
Tekton Pipelines has shifted into beta, meaning the open source CD project is now looking for more contributors and testers.
Tekton Pipeline is the core component of the Tekton project, which is overseen by the Continuous Delivery Foundation, and is pitched to “configure and run continuous integration/continuous delivery (CI/CD) pipelines within a Kubernetes cluster.” It originated in Knative Build.
The project team said the beta means “most Tekton Pipelines CRDs (Custom Resource Definition) are now at beta level. This means overall beta level stability can be relied on.” However, other components, including Tekton Triggers, Dashboard, Pipelines CLI and more, “are still alpha and may continue to evolve from release to release”.
The team overseeing the development of the open source Tekton Pipelines under the auspices of the Continuous Delivery (CD) Foundation announced today the project is now in beta.
Christie Wilson, Tekton Project Lead and a software engineer at Google, said Tekton Pipelines are not necessarily a tool most DevOps teams will interact with directly. Rather they provide a foundation on which DevOps platforms can be built that will make it easier for DevOps teams to construct workflows spanning multiple continuous integration/continuous delivery (CI/CD) platforms.
As such, Tekton Pipelines should play a critical role in not just fostering interoperability but also alleviating concerns about become locked into a specific CI/CD platform.
