KubeCon + CloudNativeCon North America is Going Virtual + CFP extended!
We have some news – KubeCon + CloudNativeCon North America is going online!
Connecting and collaborating is in the DNA of the open source cloud native community. With over 92,000 contributors to CNCF projects, 11 new sandbox projects, and 30 new members in Q2 (bringing membership to 570 organizations!), KubeCon + CloudNativeCon has been a key place to keep conversations going and continue building cloud native’s momentum. Although we can’t wait for the day we’ll be able to get together in-person, our virtual events are essential in educating and keeping our community thriving.
This also means the CFP has been extended! The deadline to submit a talk is Sunday, July 12 at 11:59 pm PDT. Learn more about the CFP and other event details here. We look forward to bringing the community together soon!

The Beginners Guide to the CNCF TOC
Presented by: Liz Rice, VP of Open Source Engineering at Aqua Security
Who is the Technical Oversight Committee? What do its members do? How do projects get picked for adoption into the CNCF? Let’s shine a light on this group who determine which projects are adopted by the CNCF, set the future direction of the cloud native landscape, and are even responsible for the definition of the term “cloud native.”
This talk discusses the pros & cons of a project’s participation in the CNCF from the perspective of end users, vendors, contributors, and maintainers. It covers the lifecycle for a CNCF project, including:
– why projects want to be in the CNCF
– how the project adoption process works
– the requirements that the CNCF has on projects at different phases of maturity
Attendees will leave this talk with insights into how the technical arm of the CNCF works, why it’s important, what the TOC wants to do next, and how they can get involved.
