Today I’m proud to publicly announce the JFrog SuperFrogs Program where our SuperFrogs “Deploy: Higher. Further. Faster.” Their mission is to enhance the lives of developers by demonstrating the power and proficiency you can achieve by using the JFrog DevOps Platform as one of the tools in your developer toolset – regardless of the language you code in. Each SuperFrog continues to demonstrate their passion for tech with their extensive history of commits and pull requests, working on open source projects, creating developer tools, blogging, presenting, and leading with one guiding principle – community first.
The SuperFrogs are helping to advance DevOps by making JFrog’s vision of liquid software a reality. I want to take a moment to highlight a very special SuperFrog, Carl Quinn. Carl has touched the lives of countless developers and was an instrumental part of making JFrog the global leader in DevOps that it is today. I first met Carl at Kubecon NA 2019 at a special Frogs and Friends event. Carl and his wife Tracy welcomed me with open arms into their extended tech family and when I explained that I was hired to create the SuperFrogs Program, Carl’s immediate reaction was something along the lines of ‘cool, where do I sign up?’ We are pleased to honor Carl as the first JFrog SuperFrog and celebrate him in memoriam with his comic book cover reading: Developer Tools Creator | Java Posse | Gamer | Friend & Mentor.
SuperFrogs are virtually presenting at meetups and conferences all over the globe (and from the comfort of their homes). Four of our SuperFrogs are presenting at our virtual (and free to attend) DevOps conference, swampUP.
- NIST Alignment with Artifactory, Wayne Chatelain
- Disaster Recovery and You, Valarie Regas
- JFrog’s Xray API at a Glance, Andres Almiray
- Let’s Build Cloud-Native Data Pipelines with Kafka Connect on Kubernetes, Viktor Gamov
As an added bonus to everyone that read this far, I am giving away a discount code for Free Tutorial Day so you can see Wayne, Valarie, Andres and Viktor in action for free! Use this link when you register for swampUP and you can add on Tutorial Day for FREE! (It is the third step in the registration process.)
To close this blog and to start this next adventure with our SuperFrogs, JFrog wants to thank the community for all of your support over the years. We are continuing to work to support the community at large with our free subscription of the JFrog Platform, ConanCenter and are happy to arrange a MeetUp with one of our SuperFrogs or developer advocates – we can even provide the platform to host it for you. Congratulations again to our SuperFrogs and we look forward to sharing more over the coming months.
