CNCF Scales Sandbox Approval Process to Meet Growing Demand from New Projects

Introduced this week, the new Sandbox approval process will increase the acceptance of new projects into the CNCF, as well as reduce barriers for open source projects seeking neutral grounds to accelerate their innovation, adoption velocity, and community building efforts.

 “The CNCF Sandbox has long played an important role enabling neutral collaboration and experimental cloud native projects to thrive, but with record demand by projects to join the CNCF community, we agreed that the process could be refined in new ways to speed the review and approval process,” said Chris Aniszczyk, CTO of the Cloud Native Computing Foundation. “I’m thrilled that the CNCF TOC has put in place a great new process that simplifies the barrier to entry for worthy projects and increases innovation, which recently led to 11 new Sandbox projects being accepted”.

CNCF Project News: TOC approves Operator Frameworkand Contour as Incubating Projects

Exciting project news – Operator Framework, which is made up of two main components Operator SDK and Operator Lifecycle Manager (OLM) is now an incubation-level hosted project. 

TOC also approved Contour, a high-performance ingress controller for Kubernetes that provides a control plane for Envoy, is now an incubation-level hosted project.

Congratulations to both projects and their respective teams!

Tutorial: Communication Is Key — Understanding Kubernetes Networking
Presented by Jeff Poole, Vivint Smart Home

Networking in Kubernetes has several aspects, including DNS, iptables, routing, software bridges, IP assignment, network policies, etc. While the practices for understanding the network were fairly easy to translate from physical servers to virtual machines, the level of complexity increases greatly when moving to containers in Kubernetes.

This tutorial will explain several of the networking concepts used in Kubernetes with accompanying lab exercises in a virtualized environment so that participants will become comfortable looking under the hood at how a Kubernetes cluster is working (or not working, as the case may be).

The material will be designed for people comfortable with SSH, bash, kubectl, and basic networking concepts, and will fill in the more advanced networking knowledge as the tutorial progresses. Please have Vagrant + VirtualBox installed to run the labs locally.

Register now!
