We Came Together, Now What?

Various initiatives have been going on across open source communities to address the challenges in end-to-end integration & testing, especially when there is a need to bring different open source components together to see how well they work in system context.

However, working on the problems that are common and span across different communities in an isolated manner is not beneficial for the ecosystem since what is done by each of these communities can potentially be shared by others who are working on solving similar problems. This includes but not limited to improved way of working, alignment on CI/CD, reuse of the tooling.

Recently, developers from open source communities came together and started working on things in a collaborative manner. The thinking behind this was that once we get to know each other and start talking, the rest would be much easier and quicker. The topics of interest are infrastructure, CI/CD, integration & testing so we could look for the answers together.

What can I expect to learn?

Attendees will have possibility to be part of our journey from very early days of this effort and have chance to learn more about what we achieved; both socially and technically.

They will have opportunity to ask questions to the people who are involved actively since the beginning and learn ways to get involved, contribute and have fun.

The challenges and a high level roadmap will also be part of the presentation so everyone can see where we are heading and have chance to take part in this.
