In the Cockpit project we’ve done something amazing: We’ve built “robot” contributors to an Open Source project. “Cockpituous”, our project’s #5 contributor, is actually our automated team members.

Bots do the mundane tasks that would otherwise use up the time of human contributors. During the talk you can see them self-organizing, finding issues, contributing code changes, making decisions, releases the software into Linux distros and containers. They work in a completely distributed, organic way, and run in containers on Kubernetes.

We’ll talk about how humans are pair-programming with bots, and moving at a pace that would be unthinkable otherwise.

Treating the bots as team members is fundamental to achieving this. I’m excited to show you how to pull that off.
