I don't know how I haven't seen CNCF before, but can you give me (and anyone else who might not know) a brief summary of what they do?

Their page makes it clear that I should know, but doesn't give me an obvious place to click to get a clue.

EDIT:

Found some markety things here.

What is CNCF?

CNCF is an open source software foundation dedicated to making cloud native computing universal and sustainable. Cloud native computing uses an open source software stack to deploy applications as microservices, packaging each part into its own container, and dynamically orchestrating those containers to optimize resource utilization. Cloud native technologies enable software developers to build great products faster.




I'm the executive director of CNCF and would be happy to answer any follow-up questions. Here's a good overview deck:

Oh! Well then, nice to meet you!

This deck looks very interesting, I don't mean to hijack this thread and make it an AMA, but I do have some questions for you.

- What does it mean to host my project with CNCF?

- Why was CNCF created?

- What do you consider the core services that CNCF offers?

- I have colleagues who work in the automotive industry, I know cluster technology and IoT are huge for them right now but also it's a strange place to operate. Since they have a small community compared to normal web services, what sort of value prop are you providing to them?

- Why should I look at CNCF for resources relating to my companies cloud services?

- Your company/product really does not appear to be geared towards developers, which I would think would be essential, can you show me a developer portal that tells me why I should depend on you for the information you appear to be aggregating?


Halfway down https://www.cncf.io/projects/ has the best overview of why you should host your project with CNCF and the services we provide.

In the automotive industry, I would recommend our sister organization, Automotive Grade Linux. https://www.automotivelinux.org/


The first question I asked was really important. I think y'all are selling snake oil. Your responses here confirm that for me.

I personally will be avoiding your organization like the plague.
