CNCF hosts the biggest open source and cloud native event in China featuring talks from Alibaba, Baidu, Huawei, Tencent and Yahoo! Japan, Adds Open Source Summit from the Linux Foundation

SAN FRANCISCO, Calif. – April 10, 2019 – T​he Cloud Native Computing Foundation (CNCF®), which sustains and integrates open source technologies like Kubernetes® and Prometheus™, announced today speakers for KubeCon + CloudNativeCon + Open Source Summit China 2019 on June 24-26, 2019, in Shanghai.

KubeCon + CloudNativeCon will feature content spanning networking, AI/ML/DL, blockchain, edge computing, and open source best practices with the addition of Open Source Summit, formerly known as the LinuxCon + ContainerCon + CloudOpen China (LC3). See KubeCon + CloudNativeCon + Open Source Summit China 2019 Program Announcedfor more information on speakers, tracks and sessions covering these topics.

KubeCon + CloudNativeCon + Open Source Summit features speakers from Ant Financial, GO-JEK, eBay, and East China Normal University, who will address discuss cloud native implementations with Kubernetes, Prometheus, and more.

“Since our inaugural KubeCon + CloudNativeCon event in China last year, we have seen significant interest and momentum from organizations in the region that are developing and using cloud native and open source technologies,” said Dan Kohn, Executive Director of the Cloud Native Computing Foundation. “We are expanding the event and are proud to host the largest open source conference in China to continue driving collaboration across the global open source community.”

A program committee of 75 experts led by conference co-chairs VMware’s Bryan Liles and Lyft’s Vicki Cheung reviewed 618 submissions for the KubeCon + CloudNativeCon tracks to create the show’s diverse content lineup. The agenda features a full slate of technical sessions, deep-dives and case studies touching on all CNCF project and topics including application + development, CI/CD, open source community, customizing + extending Kubernetes, machine learning + data, networking, observability, operations, performance, runtimes, security + identity + policy, serverless, service mesh, storage and more!

“Having the opportunity to review submissions for KubeCon + CloudNativeCon + Open Source Summit China has been a very eye-opening experience seeing first-hand the adoption and interest in open source and cloud native technology in China,” said Liles. “We are seeing massive growth, which has increased from last year’s event. Attendees can look forward to a very diverse and inspiring line-up of maintainers, technology experts and end users who are experiencing first hand the benefits of these technologies.”

Thousands of technologists will gather for three days to hear from the maintainers and end users of CNCF’s hosted projects – including Kubernetes, Prometheus, Envoy, CoreDNS, containerd, OpenTracing, Fluentd, gRPC, rkt, CNI, Jaeger, Notary, TUF, Vitess, Linkerd, NATS, Helm, Rook, Harbor, etcd, Open Policy Agent, and CRI-O – as well as other open source and cloud native technologies.

The community-curated KubeCon + CloudNativeCon + Open Source Summit schedule will feature sessions from the following cloud native open source technologists:
