Editor’s pick of the highlights from the past week.
The elections for the Technical Oversight Committee (TOC) are taking place in January 2019.
The TOC is expanding from 9 members to 11 members; adding an additional End User seat and a new seat for non-sandbox project maintainers. The TOC will now consist of:
- 6 nominees from the Governing Board (GB)
- 2 nominees from the End User Community (up from 1)
- 1 nominee from the non-sandbox project maintainers (up from 0)
- 2 nominees from the other 9 members of the TOC
There are 5 seats open. All TOC terms will be 2 years.
For more information on the process, see the blog CNCF TOC Governance Structure + Elections 2020 and the FAQ for December 2019 TOC Nominations.
Kubernetes Knights at KubeCon ’19
Pankaj Gupta, Citrix
KubeCon + CloudNativeCon San Diego 2019 was the place to take stock and ponder the progress being made with Kubernetes. It was also the place to learn the art of possibilities with Kubernetes – the new paradigm of building applications for faster release cycles, modularity, and portability. Unsurprisingly, it was being driven by the many Kubernetes Knights – who, clad in the armor plating of their service meshes, are charging forward with great speed and agility, lancing their way through everything we thought possible, scaling the towers and breaking down the walls of the castle as they press forward on their microservices crusade.
A fun read on Pankaj’s perspective of KubeCon + CloudNativeCon San Diego.
