Spinnaker Summit 2019 brings together the rapidly growing global community of Spinnaker users – an open source, multi-cloud continuous delivery platform for releasing software changes with high velocity and confidence, created at Netflix and used by JP Morgan Chase, Cerner Healthcare, Capital One and others around the globe. Spinnaker has been battle-tested in production by hundreds of teams over millions of deployments. It combines a powerful and flexible pipeline management system with integrations to the major cloud providers.
This year’s conference will bring together the Spinnaker users together with Cloud Native Computing Foundation’s KubeCon to unite our open source community members. Join us and discover how Spinnaker and Kubernetes integrate seamlessly to make software deployment pipelines more flexible and also help with visibility, configuration, and easier rollbacks. With Kubernetes and Spinnaker, you can create a robust continuous delivery flow that helps to ensure your software is shipped as quickly as it is developed and validated.
Our Spinnaker Summit 2019 agenda includes more than 30 breakout sessions featuring 50 speakers presenting real world examples of Spinnaker enterprise deployments along with continuous delivery innovations. Participate in interactive hands-on Spinnaker training workshops, leverage free childcare services, network with members at our community event, and hear from our Spinnaker experts.
The CD Foundation is hosting a one-day ‘Continuous Delivery Summit’ on November 18 just before KubeCon San Diego (Nov 18-21). This time round, Christie Wilson and myself, Tracy Miranda, will be co-chairs and look forward to welcoming you to the summit!
Since then the CD Foundation has gotten bigger (we are only just 6 months old!) and it is great to see our community growing. For the CD Summit call-for-papers we had 57 amazing submissions for just 15 slots!
We would like to thank the following community members who volunteered and reviewed talk submissions:
Tessa Kriesel (Circle CI)
Sarah Conway (Snyk)
Tracy Ragan (DeployHub)
Michael Neale (CloudBees)
Jayne Groll (DevOps Institute)
Fatih Degirmenci (Ericsson)
Andy Glover (Netflix)
Tim Fong (Linux Foundation)
Raj Panchapakesan (JFrog)
We had some excellent talk submissions and were pleased to see so much choice, especially covering the topics we highlighted in the call-for-papers that are the focus areas of the CD Foundation. It was tough to select just ~25% of the submissions, and in some cases we had to get creative to squeeze a speaker/talk onto the program.
We are featuring talks on the CDF’s 4 member projects, Jenkins, Spinnaker, Jenkins X & Tekton, including:
Tekton is showcased in our Real World Case Studies and Lightning Talks.
Real World Case Studies
We love a real world story of people figuring out CI/CD, warts and all! We have some great talks including these two from insurance company North West Mutual, and building materials company Heidelberg Cement (yes a cement company – should be a solid talk!)
We had some really intriguing talk submissions that we just couldn’t fit into the program but we really wanted to hear from them somehow or the other at the summit. With that in mind we have invited these lovely folks onto a CI/CD panel on Teams & Tools:
Dawn Parzych, LaunchDarkly
Angel Rivera, CircleCI
Vincent Demeester, Red Hat
Eric Sorenson, Puppet
To round out the day we have a good mix of lightning talks, including in the emerging area of MLOps. Dan Lorenc has enthusiastically volunteered to MC these and keep everyone on track – speakers you have been warned!
The event runs on November 18 from 9am to 5pm. We have space for 200 registrants and at the time of writing 60 spaces were already gone, so please do register soon. Additionally we will have an evening social event (after the Kubecon lightning talks) – details to follow.
We’re very excited and to finish off, here’s what my co-chair Christie has to say about joining us at the event:
“It’s always exciting to bring together so many people who are focused on an often neglected activity at the heart of all of our software cycles: CI/CD. There’s so much potential in this space and so much room for everyone to get involved and make it better – hope to see you there!”
