We’re pleased to announce the program for FoundationDB Summit, our inaugural community conference taking place on December 10 during KubeCon + CloudNativeCon in Seattle, Washington.
Register today to join the FoundationDB community in person!
What to expect
We’ve organized FoundationDB Summit into a single-track event, with plenty of time to meet members of the community and learn from one another.
The conference will kickoff with an introduction to the project, share updates since it was open sourced in April, and offer a technical overview of FoundationDB.
The rest of the day will pick up the pace and take us on a tour of what’s happening in the community, focusing on three areas:
- Use cases, including how FoundationDB runs in production and lessons learned
- Software layers, and how FoundationDB is being extended with new models
- Advanced topics, including where the project may be headed
These are just samples of some of the talks that are planned. The event schedule is now online, and we encourage you to check out the full program which includes lightning talks.
Who should attend
FoundationDB Summit is a technical conference that will bring together early adopters, core developers, and other community members. If you’re interested in learning more about the project, we encourage you to join us!
We’ve also established diversity scholarships for applicants from underrepresented and/or marginalized groups. The deadline to apply for scholarships is next Friday, November 2.
FoundationDB Summit is also part of the KubeCon + CloudNativeCon Community Events Day, and will be in the same Washington Convention Center as thousands of other open source engineers that week.
Join the community
FoundationDB Summit is a great opportunity to join the community, learn from and meet others, and get involved. We believe that a strong open source project requires a vibrant community, and we hope you’ll join us in Seattle to help grow that for FoundationDB. Registration is open!
Before the conference, if you’re looking to get involved we also encourage your participation on the community forums, and welcome contributions.
We look forward to seeing you at FoundationDB Summit in Seattle!
