2019 CNCF Cloud Native Survey Call to Participate
Kim McMahon, CNCF

The goal of the CNCF Cloud Native Survey is to understand the state of Kubernetes, container, and serverless adoption and use in the cloud native space.

This is the 7th time we have taken the temperature of the infrastructure software marketplace to better understand the adoption of cloud native technologies. We will collect and share insights on:

The production usage of CNCF-hosted projects
The changing landscape of application development
How companies are managing their software development cycles
Cloud native in production and the benefits
Challenges in using and deploying containers

Your views and insights are needed to provide these valuable results to the community. Click to complete the survey.

Kubernetes Summits Seoul and Sydney: Expanding Cloud Native Engagement Across the Globe

The first two Kubernetes Forums in Seoul, South Korea December 9-10 and Sydney, Australia December 12-13 will bring together international and local experts with adopters, developers, and practitioners, in an accessible and compact format.

Much like CNCF’s three annual KubeCon + CloudNativeCon events, the Forums are designed to promote face-to-face collaboration and deliver rich educational experiences. At the Forums, attendees can engage with the leaders of Kubernetes and other CNCF-hosted projects, and help set the direction for the cloud native ecosystem.

CFP for both events is open! Submit your CFP by September 6.
