CDEvents Documentation

Welcome to the CDEvents specification documentation for release v0.3.0. Here, you can find all the information necessary to understand and implement CDEvents within your application. For those new to CDEvents, we recommend starting with the White Paper and the Primer, to help you rapidly understand the concepts.

Note that CDEvents builds upon CloudEvents, so it may be helpful to have some understanding of that specification first.

To help you get up to speed quickly, we have broken the specification down into bite-sized chunks. The sections below will help you navigate to the information that you need.
