With the postponement of KubeCon + CloudNativeCon EU, and many of our other favorite face-to-face industry events, CNCF, GitLab, and Kong are excited to announce the Cloud Native Summit Online as another event to get the community together!

Cloud native open source projects, SIGs, and working groups are fundamental to many of our jobs. As we adjust to working remotely and maintaining productivity, we are excited to bring together experts from the community to provide insights and support around cloud native technologies and CNCF projects.

The virtual event will take place on Tuesday, April 7 from 6:00 am – 2:00 pm PT / 15:00 – 23:00 CET!

Cloud Native Summit Online will be a live, fun, and interactive event. It will kick off with a welcome from CNCF CTO, Chris Aniszczyk and a subsequent presentation from Mark Coleman, CNCF’s Marketing Committee Chairperson about the Well-Being Working Group.

Over the course of the event, we will dive into updates from the project maintainers of all CNCF graduated projects: Kubernetes, Prometheus, Envoy, Jaeger, Fluentd, Containerd, CoreDNS, TUF. We will hear from panels of key SIG and WG contributors and spend time in the hallway track with breakout sessions ranging from lego chats, all remote tips, conversations about the information we just imbibed. In this time of self-isolation and quarantine, family members – both human and pet versions – are welcome to join. There’ll be a kids-oriented breakout called juice-box!

Register now and we will share event details once we have finalized the live streaming and “hallway” engagement platform!

We hope to see you soon on April 7th on the interwebs!
