This presentation from Ford Motor Company, Boston University, and Red Hat showcases the power of community to drive the transformation from traditional software development methodologies to next generation cloud native development. To do this, Ford has turned to Kube By Example, sponsored by Red Hat and supported by Boston University, as a means to upskill their workforce and accelerate the development of cloud native automotive software. This has led to increased community participation, optimized customer experiences and a transformation of Ford's software development culture that runs deeper than the technology itself.
