The annual KubeCon + CloudNativeCon event was postponed five months to August this year and organized as a virtual conference on account of the COVID-19 pandemic. It joins many of the major cloud, ops, and IT management conferences that have or will run online in 2020, including Red Hat Summit and AWS re:Invent 2020.

The most recent virtual KubeCon + CloudNativeCon conference attracted over 18,000 people from different cloud native communities. Key points included the possibility of creating a more inclusive cloud native community, the importance of understanding end-user adoption patterns, and empathizing with people, businesses, and systems embracing cloud technologies.

Sessions at KubeCon + CloudNativeCon North America 2020 Virtual will cover CNCF ‘projects’, which is how the foundation refers to the technologies it researches and creates. Prominent projects include container orchestration platform Kubernetes, and system monitoring and alerting tool Prometheus.

In August, more than 18,000 people in the cloud native community convened for our first and very successful virtual KubeCon + CloudNativeCon conference. We are very happy to be able to come together once again this year – across timezones – to support each other as CNCF projects grow.
