Abstract

With the institutional advantage of navigating a public-cloud migration in a highly-regulated industry, Capital One has created an innovative, low-friction environment for developers. John Mark Walker will discuss how Capital One accelerated its cloud-first vision while balancing developers’ open source needs with regulatory requirements. To illustrate this work, John Mark will be joined by colleague, Darien Ford, Senior Director of Software Engineering, who will share some of Capital One’s best practices in open source container management.

Webinar participants will learn how to determine which software projects to launch; how to connect them with the overarching technology strategy; actively participate in open source communities; and foster partnerships with foundations, all while meeting regulatory requirements.

Presentation Highlights

  • Capital One’s technology transformation and open source-first commitment to software development;
  • How we built the technology, governance and culture to support open source contribution;
  • Examples from Capital One’s work in open source container management; and
  • By becoming active in open source communities and investing in their sustainability, our software quality increases and risk is reduced.

This webinar is sponsored by Capital One and hosted by The Linux Foundation.
