KubeCon + CloudNativeCon EU Wrapup

KubeCon + CloudNativeCon Europe is over, but we’ve put together a roundup of some of highlights from this year’s keynotes. You can watch 6 keynotes with topics including:

  • Cloud native security and code quality
  • A look at how CERN is using cloud native technology
  • Lessons learned from a high-stakes stack migration
  • And much more.

Bonus: Check out this conference interview with Dan Kohn and Dee Kumar discussing how cloud native is the Internet’s plumbing.


The Growth of Cloud Native Computing

With all the buzz around KubeCon + CloudNativeCon Europe, there have also been some interesting press writeups about the growth of cloud native computing that you may be interested in:


“We’re in a new era in IT, especially infrastructure, where open source is more important than ever. And it seems like the CNCF (which technically is part of the Linux Foundation) wields a level of power heretofore unseen among open source foundations. It has money, huge members and, seemingly, a functional governance model. And it’s really stepping up its efforts around certifications and other business-level functions.”



“What’s impressive about the native cloud industry is that from a standing start roughly four years ago, it’s close to building an open cloud platform that it wants to share with the whole business world. It’s not quite there yet and needs a few more layers, but thanks to the foresight of the Linux Foundation to establish the Cloud Native Computing Foundation (CNCF), the industry’s tottering steps were shepherded well.”


Kubernetes for Developers Certification Released

We just released our latest certification – Certified Kubernetes Application Developer. This new exam helps developers prove their skills in designing and building cloud-native applications for Kubernetes while enabling companies to more quickly hire high-quality teams to support their growth.
