As Thomas Edison once said, “I didn’t fail, I just found 2,000 ways how to not make a light bulb; I only needed to find one way to make it work”.  The same mindset holds true for open source innovation, where the vast majority of projects fail, at least as measured by user adoption.  But that is, in fact, the secret of open source innovation.  Success through rapid, iterative failure.

In his keynote, Thomas -no not that Thomas-, Dr. Thomas Di Giacomo, CTO of SUSE, will share his insight on how no-rules experimentation and an iterative approach to open source development deliver rapid innovation to the CNCF community and enterprise customers, alike. Thomas will also highlight exciting open source projects SUSE is contributing to including Epinio, Hypper, Kube-warden, Opni, FuseML, and Harvester. Maybe only a few will succeed and join CNCF, such as Longhorn and k3s, but all will contribute to advancing open source innovation.
