Apple will be providing sponsorships for the scholarships at FoundationDB Summit, happening on Day Zero of KubeCon + CloudNativeCon San Diego.

For its second year, FoundationDB Summit has two tracks. The first is curated for attendees new to the community and will focus on architectural overviews as well as real-world business applications. The second track will provide technical deep dives into features, challenges, and tooling community members have been working on.

The FoundationDB scholarship program provides support to those from traditionally underrepresented and/or marginalized groups in the technology and/or open source communities, who may not otherwise have the opportunity to attend CNCF events for financial reasons. Scholarships are also available on a needs and affordability basis.

Thanks to Apple, scholarship recipients will receive complimentary registration for KubeCon + CloudNativeCon and the FoundationDB Summit.

Scholarships are awarded based on a combination of need and impact. The selection was made by a group of reviewers who evaluated each applicant’s requests.
