August 12, 2019

DevOps Institute, a global member-based association for advancing the human elements of DevOps, announced the introduction of its DevOps Institute Ambassador program.

The program invites and acknowledges accomplished volunteers from across the globe who are committed to leading and empowering the DevOps Institute member community with the SKIL Framework to advance the Humans of DevOps with Skills, Knowledge, Ideas and Learning.
