KubeCon + CloudNativeCon 2022 news coverage

Last updated:May 2022

Editor's note

This year, the Cloud Native Computing Foundation (CNCF) held its European KubeCon + CloudNativeCon 2022 event in Valencia, Spain -- as well as virtually -- from May 16-20. Topics covered 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. 

Kubernetes remains the industry leader in container orchestration, with an audience spanning IT spaces and verticals. Forming a foundation for swaths of other tools, services and application infrastructure, Kubernetes has become nearly inseparable from the tools and services IT organizations use daily. 

Review news from the European event now and check back for updates when KubeCon + CloudNativeCon North America 2022 is held in Detroit from Oct. 24-28.

1What's happening 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.

2The 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.
