On Tuesday, job search site Indeed announced that it has joined the Cloud Native Computing Foundation (CNCF), an open source software foundation dedicated to making cloud-native computing universal and sustainable.
The CNCF is part of the The Linux Foundation, and is a vendor-neutral home for fast-growing projects. Indeed relies on open source technologies such as Python, Apache, Mesos, and OpenTracing to build and deliver its products, according to a blog post making the announcement.
Open source has become the industry model for practical software development, and its commercial success has been driven in part by adoption from large tech companies such as IBM and Oracle. Walmart and Verizon also rely on open source programs, and host their own open source projects, the post noted.
