CNCF Announces Helm Graduation

“When we set out to build Helm, we had two goals in mind,” said Matt Butcher, principal software development engineer at Microsoft and Helm maintainer. “First, make it easy for Kubernetes newcomers to get started deploying cloud native applications. Second, provide a package manager that can scale with enterprise needs. With today’s graduation announcement, we’re happy to see how these two goals have been fulfilled on a larger scale than we ever imagined!” 

Help us congratulate the Helm team on this exciting milestone.
