Back in-person in Valencia, Spain in May, technology enthusiasts will meet to share and educate around cloud native innovation
SAN FRANCISCO, Calif. – March 9, 2022 – The Cloud Native Computing Foundation® (CNCF®), which builds sustainable ecosystems for cloud native software, released the schedule for KubeCon + CloudNativeCon Europe 2022, happening in Valencia, Spain and virtually from May 16 – 20. After two years of virtual European conferences, CNCF is thrilled to offer 172 sessions, keynotes, lightning talks, and breakout sessions both in-person and virtually.
This year’s conference chairs, Jasmine James of Twitter, Emily Fox of Apple, and Ricardo Rocha of CERN, led a program committee of 98 experts and 36 track chairs, who reviewed 1187 submissions that will hit on diverse, inspiring, and educational topics. Attendees will also be able to attend more than 72 sessions hosted by project maintainers – ranging from 101 content and end user case studies to demos and technical deep dives.
“Cloud native technology adoption has surged over the last three years, two and half of which our community has spent with very little face to face collaboration,” said Priyanka Sharma, executive director of the Cloud Native Computing Foundation. “Research shows that much of learning, innovation, and collaboration happens best with human interaction. For a community like ours where people work in diverse companies and roles, that in-person touch point is even more essential. For that reason, KubeCon + CloudNativeCon conferences hold a crucial role in the ecosystem. We look forward to being back with our diverse, resilient, and innovative community in Europe in May.”
“As a new co-chair, it is invigorating to see so many exceptional speaking submissions, especially those focused on cloud native security across multiple domains,” said Emily Fox, KubeCon + CloudNativeCon program chair and security engineer at Apple. “There is so much our diverse community offers one another and their excitement to collaborate and grow is heartwarming, especially during these stressful times. The program committee dedicated untold hours reviewing and selecting proposals that bring the growth of the ecosystem to the evolution of the KubeCon experience.”
