Taking place in Detroit, Michigan and virtually, CNCF’s flagship North American event will highlight cloud native innovation across the globe

SAN FRANCISCO, Calif. – August 3, 2022 – The Cloud Native Computing Foundation® (CNCF®), which builds sustainable ecosystems for cloud native software, announced the schedule for KubeCon + CloudNativeCon North America 2022, happening in Detroit, Michigan and virtually from October 24 – 28. With 189 sessions, keynotes, and lightning talks both in-person and virtually, there is something for everyone who is interested in attending. 

This year’s conference chairs, Emily Fox of Apple, Ricardo Rocha of CERN, and Frederick Kautz of Carelon led a program committee of 93 experts and 34 track chairs, who reviewed 1526 submissions that will educate, inspire, and challenge attendees. There will also be 84 sessions hosted by project maintainers – which will provide high-level overviews, social topics, end user case studies, demos, and technical deep dives, among others.

“Our community has grown exponentially since we first announced CNCF in 2015 with 22 founding members. We are now significantly more diverse at over 800 members, 130+ projects, and 164,000 contributors across 187 countries,” said Chris Aniszczyk, CTO of CNCF. “The ecosystem itself that has been built around cloud native technology is revolutionary and these conferences are integral in making sure the massive knowledge the community holds is shared far and wide. We look forward to meeting up again to share, laugh, and innovate this October at KubeCon + CloudNativeCon NA.”

“I have been a part of the CNCF community for several years in many different capacities and it has been inspiring to witness the continued growth and momentum within the cloud native ecosystem,” said Ricardo Rocha, KubeCon + CloudNativeCon program chair and computing engineer at CERN. “Getting to review the significant number of insightful, diverse, and brilliant speaking submissions is a great honor that I am so glad to have been a part of. Attendees, like every event, should be prepared to hear from a broad range of inspiring people to learn about and celebrate cloud native technology.”
