Continuous Delivery Workshops

Continuous Delivery Workshops

The CDF Workshop Series unites contributors to projects within the CDF community. These quarterly workshops feature topics proposed by the community, for the community, and provide an opportunity for learning and collaboration. The goal of the CDF Workshop Series is to offer a forum for contributors to collect use cases, share best practices, and to advance various technical initiatives of CDF projects.

We see the CDF Workshop Series becoming a valuable resource for surfacing common challenges and solutions, and ultimately identifying areas of opportunity for SIGs to discuss and promote future contributions to the corresponding projects.
