Hear ye! Hear ye! Jenkins Community,

cdCon 2021 (the Continuous Delivery Foundation’s annual flagship event) is happening June 23-24 and its call for papers is open!

This is your chance to share what you’ve been doing with Jenkins. Are you building something cool? Using it to solve real-world problems? Are you making things fast? Secure? Or maybe you’re a contributor and want to share what’s new. In all cases, we want to hear from you!

Submit your talk for cdCon 2021 to be part of the conversation driving the future of software delivery for technology teams, enterprise leadership, and open-source communities.
