Limited Capacity filling up

In the Cockpit project we’ve done something amazing: We’ve built a team that’s part human and part machine working on an Open Source project. “Cockpituous”, our project’s #5 commit contributor, is actually our automated team members.

Bots do the mundane tasks that would otherwise use up the time of human contributors. You can see them self-organizing, doing continuous integration, finding issues, contributing code changes, making decisions, releasing the software into Linux distros and containers. They work in a distributed, organic way, and run in containers on Openshift.

We’ll talk about how humans are training the bots, and how bots are using machine learning to learn from the humans.

Treating the bots as team members is fundamental to achieving this.
