CTO.ai is excited to announce that we have joined The Cloud Native Computing Foundation (CNCF) as a member organization.

That means we are increasing our commitment to open source software even further.

Joining the CNCF expands upon our other open source commitments, including our sponsorship of open source masterminds TJ Holowaychuk and Julian Gruber, as well as our recent open-sourcing of our registry on an MIT license.

It’s our belief that it is imperative to back open source projects and technologies in order to support the current 50 million developers as well as the next 50 million developers coming online over the next decade.

CNCF also hosts an assortment of critical components of the global technology infrastructure, including Kubernetes, Prometheus, and Envoy. In particular, we love k8s.

As a deeper level of collaboration with CNCF, we’ve open-sourced a Kubernetes Op — a workflow for managing k8s clusters via your CLI or Slack on The Ops Platform — to help developers automate their k8s interactions.

“Kubernetes is a DevOps software development tool built and supported by Google to enable teams to simplify the management of deploying updates and services in a distributed system,” explains Ben Slater, VP of Engineering at CTO.ai, in a recent blog post.

“On The Ops Platform, we currently support setting up and tearing down managed Kubernetes clusters on AWS (EKS) and GCP (GKE),” Slater continues.

CNCF brings together the industry’s top developers, end-users, and vendors. In addition, CNCF runs the largest open source developer conferences in the world, including KubeCon with close to 20,000 attendees.

"We are thrilled that CTO.ai has joined CNCF," said Priyanka Sharma, general manager of the Cloud Native Computing Foundation. "The organization has been a proponent of open source technologies and is a natural fit given its work in creating open source solutions for automating Kubernetes."

Also as part of this collaborative effort, Kyle Campbell, CEO and Founder of CTO.ai, recently gave a CNCF webinar on Lean DevOps, which is available in video and slides on the CNCF website.

Supported by more than 500 members, including the world’s largest cloud computing and software companies, as well as over 200 innovative startups, CNCF is also part of the nonprofit Linux Foundation.

Stay tuned for more open source updates in our Slack Commmunity Workspace that covers the wide world of DevOps and the greater developer experience.
