Understand Spinnaker’s Growth

Ahoy! We’re thrilled to announce that Spinnaker.io has published the first report about the status of the Spinnaker project. Visit the Captain’s Log: The State of Spinnaker and see a visualization of project activity, contributions, and participating companies. This consumable report aims to provide an opportunity to easily understand Spinnaker’s growth. The data comes from the CNCF’s DevStats tool, and we’ll update it regularly.

A key finding: the average number of contributions from companies besides Netflix and Google in H2 2019 was more than 2.5 times the total average since Spinnaker was open-sourced. 2019 saw a rise in contributions from end-user companies and newer stakeholders like Armory, OpsMx, and Amazon.

Other recent updates to Spinnaker.io include the Success Stories page, featuring case studies and user-submitted testimonials. These additions, along with the Captain’s Log, roll up to a broader initiative to refresh Spinnaker.io. The Documentation SIG plans to evolve it from a documentation site to a project hub. The site strives to provide an engaging answer for anyone who might ask the question, “Why Spinnaker?”

As you may expect from the most mature and production-tested continuous delivery platform, the Spinnaker project is good size, with 44 repositories, 226 contributor companies, more than 2500 contributors, and 8707 Slack participants. 2019’s expansion has cloud provider investment, enterprise adoption, and continued innovation to thank, along with the maturation of governance.

For more technical details on the project’s evolution, read the 2019 in Review blog, and catch up on keynotes from the 2019  Spinnaker Summit: Andy Glover’s on the state of Spinnaker, and Isaac Mosquera’s on Spinnaker’s culture of safety and trust.

Whatever you do, bookmark the Captain’s Log report to stay up to date on quarterly growth!
