Techstrong Series – The CD Pipeline: Continuously Delivering Software from A to Z

By Blog

We’ve partnered with Techstrong.TV to launch a new series of videos on various Continuous Delivery (CD) topics. Techstrong.TV features industry thought leaders, experts and practitioners in CD, DevOps, cloud-native, cybersecurity, and digital transformation. This partnership extends our audience reach and encourages folks to get involved in the CD dialogue.

The CD Pipeline

The series is called The CD Pipeline: Continuously Delivering Software from A to Z. It spotlights all aspects of CD as we interview community thought leaders about different technologies, open source, best practices, and future trends. Key topics include Continuous Delivery events, interoperability, software supply chain, and more.

The episodes will be hosted by Alan Shimel, Techstrong Group and Lori Lorusso, JFrog and CDF Outreach Committee Chair.

Episode 1: The State of Pipelines: Past, Present & Future – Part 1

Continuous Delivery has evolved since its inception. For our inaugural episode, we are starting a series on The State of Pipelines: Past, Present & Future. Our featured guests are maintainers, contributors, and active voices in the Tekton project and CD Foundation. 

Tekton is an open source framework for creating CD systems, allowing developers to build, test, and deploy across cloud providers and on-premise systems. Join us as we talk with the Tekton project about CD and how it has transformed since its inception in the early 2000s.

Thank you to our guests for taking the time to chat about Tekton and the State of CD Pipelines:

CD Summit aims to connect the community—from leaders, industry experts, practitioners, and open source developers—to allow them to share and discuss how to improve the world’s capacity to deliver software with security and speed.

Both events will be located at the same venue, Detroit Marriott at the Renaissance Center! This will make it easier for the broader CDF community to gather together.
