Continuing to Embrace Diversity in the Ecosystem
At KubeCon + CloudNativeCon EU, CNCF’s diversity program offered scholarships to 56 recipients, from traditionally underrepresented and/or marginalized groups, to attend the conference! The $100K investment for Barcelona was donated by CNCF, Aspen Mesh, Google Cloud, Red Hat, Twistlock and VMware.
CNCF has offered more than 300 diversity scholarships to attend KubeCons since November 2016.

Take Good Care: Open Sourcing Mental Illness
This year at KubeCon + CloudNativeCon EU, we made sure that self care and mental wellness was top of mind for everyone. As a result, we got to hear inspiring talks throughout the conference on these topics, plus, we had a booth 100% dedicated to relaxing and mental health. We felt so much community support!

“From the people Computer Weekly spoke to at Kubecon-CloudNativeCon, there is a sense that Kubernetes is breaking out of the open source developer space into the enterprise.” Cliff Saran, ComputerWeekly
“Five years after Google released the toolkit for managing workloads to the open source community, Kubernetes became the celebrated boy. Nothing seems to stop its advance, especially because the developers have embraced this system.” Alfred Montie, Computable.nl
“The Kubernetes container-orchestration system is one platform that is both surviving and thriving.” Nick Marinoff, SiliconANGLE
“It’s apparent that whether an application lives on the Google Cloud Platform or in an on-premises data center, it can be done with containers.” Kristen Nicole, SiliconANGLE
“As stated by Dan Kohn, Kubernetes has emerged on the shoulders of giants: on Linux, the Internet and various cluster manager implementations of cloud-native businesses from Spotify to Facebook to Google. The exciting question for the conference is which innovations will come on the shoulders of the giant Kubernetes in the next few days.” Josef Adersberger, Alex Krause, Heise Online
“The obvious conclusion: If you’re interested in enterprise IT infrastructure, Kubernetes should be your technology of choice, and KubeCon is the place to be.” Jason Bloomberg, SiliconANGLE

My learnings from #KubeCon #CloudNativeCon this week:
– #Kubernetes it’s definitely the standard for #containers #orchestration
– Many open source projects around this technology
– Tracing for #microservices is crucial
– Give a try to #helm 3
