It’s been a little over a month since KubeCon + CloudNativeCon North America 2022, and I wanted to take a look back at this fantastic event as our Transparency Report comes together. Almost 17,000 of you joined us, from all across the world. Of that number, close to 7,500 of you were with us in person, and that doesn’t include the Phippy and friends family, who made an appearance too!

Together we enjoyed 90 maintainer track sessions, 176 breakouts, and 17 keynotes, curated by the KubeCon + CloudNativeCon Program Committee – a group of volunteers who are subject matter experts in the conference topics and tracks, led by the conference co-chairs. 

Did you know that 61% of attendees joined us for the very first time? This injection of fresh ideas, experiences, and passion that newcomers bring to #TeamCloudNative is one of the things that make KubeCon + CloudNativeCon such a special event for everybody. The new connections and friendships that we forge at these events go on to create some of the most exciting cloud native projects and constantly drive the ecosystem forwards. 

It was also the first time we’d brought KubeCon + CloudNativeCon to the Midwest and Detroit was an amazing host. The architecture, the music, the food, the vibe – it felt so good to be in a city so alive with fresh ideas and such a distinctive spirit.
