Editor's note

The North American KubeCon + CloudNativeCon event was held in Detroit from Oct. 24 to 28. Sessions were split into 19 categories, including Networking, Observability, Security + Identity + Policy and Customizing + Extending Kubernetes. Multiple Cloud Native Computing Foundation (CNCF) projects -- such as Flux, LitmusChaos, Backstage and Knative -- also had meetings to discuss status, changes and plans.

Review news from the North American conference as well as the European KubeCon + CloudNativeCon 2022 event held in May in Valencia, Spain. Topics covered in the May event included CNCF technologies, including Prometheus and Keptn, and cultural topics such as diversity, equity and inclusion. Other agenda items included GitOps, networking, cloud-native applications and disaster recovery, to name just a few.

1What's happening in Detroit?

The North American KubeCon + CloudNativeCon's sessions are as heavily focused on Kubernetes as the European sessions, diving into observability, networking, security and service mesh, alongside broader topics such as diversity, equity and inclusion; machine learning; and multi-tenancy.

3What happened at the European conference?

KubeCon + CloudNativeCon sessions dove into CNCF tools and how to use them, both independently and in combination with other tools or platforms. Kubernetes was a uniting thread across all five days of the European conference. Attendees had the option to filter the schedule display to focus on specific topics, including CI/CD, service mesh, networking and observability -- as well as security machine learning and AI.

4The CNCF has had a busy year

The CNCF oversees more than 70 projects in the sandbox, incubation and graduation stages, with more than 100,000 contributors. CNCF projects span vast sectors of IT, including container and cloud management, software development, application security, networking and observability. Each of these projects has its own roadmap, but many of them intersect and even rely on each other for mutual development.
