The Headlines

Editor’s pick of the highlights from the past week. 

CNCF Supports the Black Lives Matter movement

This week, CNCF issued a statement on Black Lives Matter. Here is a short excerpt: 

CNCF stands in solidarity with the Black Lives Matter movement and racial equality for all. As a foundation that serves a diverse, global ecosystem of members, we also stand in solidarity with members of our community who challenge us all to do better — not just for right now — but for two months from now, two years from now, and beyond that.” – Priyanka Sharma, general manager of CNCF.

Introducing the CNCF Technology Radar

This week, the CNCF End User Community introduced Technology Radar. The EUC is a group of over 140 top companies and startups who meet regularly to discuss challenges and best practices when adopting cloud native technologies. The goal of the CNCF Technology Radar is to share what tools are actively being used by end users, the tools they would recommend, and their patterns of usage. Learn more about it and find out how you can get involved here.

Editor’s note: We are sending this week’s newsletter a day early due to the Juneteenth holiday on Friday, June 19. CNCF and the Linux Foundation offices are closed in observance.
