In the not too distant past interoperability was driven by Standards produced by SDOs such as W3C and OASIS. Paper Standards first, followed by code to prove the Standard. Since then we’ve flipped things around. Today, the trend is towards code first, specification next (or at the same time), and the word “Standard” (as defined by SDOs) is almost a dirty word. Yet, there is clearly still a need for some way to ensure interoperability. Are “specifications” developed by one OSS implementation really sufficient?

In this talk we’ll explore how even though there’s rapid innovation happening within the Cloud open source communities, as people are implementing solution based on real-world usecases we’re seeing an opportunity for the CNCF to take a leading role in developing the specifications that lead to interoperability (and yes standards) that will benefit the entire ecosystem.
