SAN FRANCISCO, August 3, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — The Cloud Native Computing Foundation® (CNCF®), which builds sustainable ecosystems for cloud-native software, announced the timeline for KubeCon + CloudNativeCon North America 2022happens in Detroit, Mich and practically off October 24th – 28. With 189 sessions, keynotes and lightning presentations, both in person and virtually, there is something for everyone interested in attending.

This year’s conference leaders Emil Fuchs from Apple, Ricardo Roche of CERN and Friedrich Kautz led a program committee of 93 experts and 34 track chairs that reviewed 1,526 submissions that will enlighten, inspire and challenge attendees. There will also be 84 sessions hosted by project maintainers – offering high-level overviews, social topics, end-user case studies, demos, and technical deep dives, among others.

“Since we first announced CNCF in 2015 with 22 founding members, our community has grown exponentially. With over 800 members, more than 130 projects and 164,000 contributors in 187 countries, we are now much more diverse,” he said Chris Aniszczyk, CTO of CNCF. “The ecosystem itself, built around native cloud technology, is revolutionary, and these conferences are an essential part of ensuring the massive knowledge held by the community is shared far and wide. We look forward to meeting again this October to share, laugh and innovate at KubeCon + CloudNativeCon NA.”

“I’ve been part of the CNCF community in many different capacities for several years, and it has been inspiring to witness the continued growth and momentum within the cloud-native ecosystem,” he said Ricardo Roche, leader of the KubeCon + CloudNativeCon program and computer engineer at CERN. “It is a great honor to see the substantial number of insightful, diverse and brilliant speakers and I am delighted to have been a part of it. As with any event, attendees should be prepared to hear from a wide range of inspiring people to learn about and celebrate cloud-native technology.”
