A Forerunner is someone or something that comes before another, a sign that something is going to Happen. Forerunner member organizations ensure that DASA has a 360-degree view of what’s key to companies looking to adopt DevOps principles.
Ambassadors increase awareness for DASA. They influence, create commitment, and disseminate DASA thought leadership. They actively contribute to advocating the development of high performance teams through DevOps and Agile initiatives.
DASA Content Development
DASA has created an open model, which means everyone who is a member can contribute to the development of DASA programs. Members can join working groups and actually influence the specific programs that DASA takes to market and detailed syllabi of each program.
Development is about understanding the market, and building programs that make sense. New development initiatives reach the editorial board through Partners and Members, and are executed through working groups.
