SEATTLE – CloudNativeCon/KubeCon – November 8, 2016 – The Cloud Native Computing Foundation, which is sustaining and integrating open source technologies to orchestrate containers of microservices, today kicked off the sold-out CloudNativeCon/ KubeCon in Seattle, bringing together the world’s largest organizations with leading open source project contributors to advance the state-of-the-art for deploying modern applications.

More than 1,000 developers, vendors, enterprise users and community members from around the world are gathering at the inaugural CloudNativeCon to further industry education and adoption through a full range of technology sessions that support the cloud native space, including Kubernetes, Prometheus, OpenTracing and related projects.

This week in Seattle attendees will hear from expert open source contributors from organizations like Box, Docker, eBay, Twitter, Comcast, Ticketmaster, Tigera, Weaveworks and more. The full CloudNativeCon/KubeCon/PrometheusDay agenda can be viewed here and keynotes will be live streamed here.

After selling-out so rapidly this year, CNCF will be hosting two larger-scale events in 2017. CloudNativeCon Europe will be held March 29-30, 2017 in Berlin and CloudNativeCon North America will be held December 6 -7, 2017 in Austin. Early registration, sponsorship and CFP information is now open for Berlin and Austin.

“It’s been really exciting to see how great the demand is to learn more about cloud native infrastructure,” said Dan Kohn, Executive Director of the Cloud Native Computing Foundation. “Presentations from some of the ecosystem’s most influential developers and users will allow attendees to learn first-hand how leading organizations leverage innovative and fast-evolving cloud native solutions. We look forward to hosting many more events, at an even greater-scale, in the coming year for our European and North American communities.”

About Cloud Native Computing Foundation

Cloud native computing uses an open source software stack to deploy applications as microservices, packaging each part into its own container, and dynamically orchestrating those containers to optimize resource utilization. The Cloud Native Computing Foundation (CNCF) hosts critical components of those software stacks including Kubernetes, Prometheus and OpenTracing; brings together the industry’s top developers, end users and vendors; and serves as a neutral home for collaboration. CNCF is part of The Linux Foundation, a nonprofit organization. For more information about CNCF, please visit:
