The Jenkins Contributor Summit brings together current and future contributors to the Jenkins project. It brings together community members to learn, meet, and help shape the future of Jenkins.
The next contributor summit will take place on June 25, 2021. It will be an online event, co-located with cdCon - the annual event that brings together technology teams, enterprise leadership and open source communities to drive the future of software delivery.
The summit will include project updates by the Governance Board, working and special interest groups. We will also organize breakout sessions to discuss key initiatives in the project and its roadmap. Topics include but not limited to: architecture changes, Jenkins Security, Cloud Native Jenkins, interoperability with CDF and CNCF projects, documentation, and user experience. We will have lightning talks and demos of the new and upcoming Jenkins features. We also organize a track for newcomer contributors who want to participate in the project.
The contributor summit will be split into the following categories: State of the Union, Newcomer track, End user panel, Contributor track with many unconference sessions in breakout rooms, Ignite Talks and Demos, Happy hour and closing afterparty. See the full agenda here.
