CNCF & Community

  • Open Source Community support on the Black Lives Matters Movement
    "In my view, open source often reflects what is best in our society. It brings together people from across the world, working on problems relevant to anyone touched by technology, for the better of our collective human race." - Priyanka Sharma, MD CNCF
  • CNCF Introducing the Technology Radar
    Like the famous ThoughtWorks Technology Radar, the CNCF Tech Radar will place solutions into one of four rings: Adopt, Trial, Assess and Hold. However, the radar, which will be published quarterly, focus per release on one specific topic like Continous Delivery.

This time we want to highlight not a book but more a report on why adopting cloud native technologies is no longer optional for enterprises that want to remain competitive. Claudio Caldato shows you how to adopt cloud native services incrementally, using the CNCF Trail Map. Learn how a cloud native approach can help increase productivity and portability of your services or applications across different cloud providers and considerably reduce time to market.
