The Cloud Native Computing Foundation (CNCF) announced Kubernetes Community Days (KCDs) at KubeCon this year. KCDs are community-organized events that gather adopters and technologists from open source and cloud native communities to learn, collaborate and network.
KCDs can be organized by anyone in the CNCF community in any city or region. Local event organizers handle their own sponsorships, registration, and all other logistics, with support from CNCF and other KCD organizers. Organizers are encouraged to incorporate local flair, culture, diversity, and authenticity to make each event unique.
Dan Kohn, Executive Director of the Cloud Native Computing Foundation, said: “CNCF will continue to run our flagship KubeCon + CloudNativeCon events in Europe, North America, and China and our new Kubernetes Forums in global cities in other regions of the world, but Kubernetes Community Days will enable the cloud native message to reach many more users around the world.”
KCDs will have a cloud native and open source focus, whether that be developer-focused or around business issues and cloud strategy.
