The Continuous Delivery Foundation saw some familiar hands take part in its creation. Chris Aniszczyk, CTO at the Cloud Native Computing Foundation and a vice president at the Linux Foundation, described the Linux Foundation as having a “foundation as a service model” to help projects and communities thrive. He said discussions were brewing in the developer scene about CI/CD, tools such as Jenkins, and whether the Linux Foundation community could get involved in establishing a neutral ground to sustain collaboration in this space.

As CI/CD grew rapidly, the variety of tools being used, Aniszczyk said, made operations somewhat hectic. “There was a bunch of tools distributed amongst our organization and it was a cause of pain,” he said. “Fragmentation is not fun if you try to move to different systems.” There were also complaints about no clear best practices in terms of documentation. Multiple conversations about CI/CD open source projects such as Jenkins and how best to support them led to the launch in March of the Continuous Delivery Foundation as neutral home for industry collaboration, he said. “We’ve just started. It’s super early days. It’s been less than half a year since we fully announced this.”
