Collaborative Leadership: Governance Beyond Company Affiliation

37 views

Published on

The unbridled success of Kubernetes can be attributed in part to being in the CNCF. Putting Kubernetes under a neutral foundation provided a level playing field where each of us could contribute, collaborate, and innovate as equals to create a widely adopted solution that we can all use. Open source projects that are controlled by a single company are at a greater risk of changes that are not aligned with community interests, whereas projects that are under neutral foundations have a lower risk both for end users and software vendors. With advantages that include community building, innovation, and wider adoption, we should consider contributing more of our open source projects to neutral foundations, like the CNCF.

The audience will get practical advice about whether they should contribute their projects to neutral foundations along with how and when to do it.
