The Cloud Native Computing Foundation (CNCF) has announced the schedule for KubeCon + CloudNativeCon North America 2021, taking place this fall from October 11-15 in Los Angeles, California and virtually. After three virtual-only events, CNCF will host technology experts both onsite in Los Angeles and online for those who are unable to attend in-person.
Attendees will experience over 230 sessions, including keynotes and breakouts, with over 70 presentations hosted by project maintainers. From non-technical and end user case studies to advanced engineering deep dives – the conference has content for everyone interested in cloud native technology.
Conference co-chairs, Constance Caramanolis of Splunk, Stephen Augustus of Cisco, and Jasmine James of Twitter, led a program committee of 104 experts and 30 track chairs to review 976 submissions to curate a lively, diverse, and educational conference program. Attendees will join organizations and project maintainers to discuss a slew of cloud native topics including CNCF’s hosted projects.
“We are thrilled we will be able to meet in-person again after a long hiatus and celebrate our resilience as a community. At the same time, the past year has shown us how much more diverse, inclusive, and equitable we can make our events with a virtual experience and we are excited to report that those who want to stay close to home can also participate in KubeCon + CloudNativeCon remotely,” said Priyanka Sharma, general manager at the CNCF.
