This year, CDF and CNCF join forces to bring attendees the best Continuous Delivery and GitOps content available

SAN FRANCISCO, March 13, 2023  – The Continuous Delivery Foundation (CDF), which seeks to improve the world’s capacity to deliver software with security and speed, and The Cloud Native Computing Foundation® (CNCF®), which builds sustainable ecosystems for cloud native software, today announced the schedule for cdCon + GitOpsCon 2023. The conference, which will be held in Vancouver, Canada from May 8 – 9 is co-located with Open Source Summit North America, taking place May 10 – 12.

For the first time, cdCon and GitOpsCon have come together for an inspiring event aimed at practitioners already using CD and GitOps. GitOps is a practice that enables organizations to take a declarative approach to cloud native infrastructure and application delivery using CD best practices. By bringing these two previously separate events together, cdCon + GitOpsCon hopes to bring these two communities together to collaborate and build the future together. The program committees reviewed more than 250 submissions and selected over 60 sessions that will span topics from technical challenges and deep dives to end-user stories and introductory content. 

“CI/CD enables GitOps and as a result it made sense to bring these two inspiring events together,” said Priyanka Sharma, Executive Director, the Cloud Native Computing Foundation. “We are thrilled to be able to partner with CD Foundation to share best practices and knowledge across CD and GitOps.” 

“Many organizations use CD and GitOps practices and technologies to deliver new features in a reliable, fast, and secure manner. We are delighted to bring these events together so project communities, users, and companies have the opportunity to meet and collaboratively shape the future of CD and GitOps,” said Fatih Degirmenci, Executive Director, the CD Foundation. 

The CD and GitOps community-curated schedule will feature talks from leaders in the industry, including:

This year, Spinnaker Summit will take place as a track within cdCon + GitOpsCon with Spinnaker workshops on May 8 and sessions on May 9. The content is geared towards Spinnaker developers, architects, operators, and technical leaders, and is a perfect place to share knowledge and build connections.


Register for in-person attendance by March 19 for the early-bird discount.
