CNCF & Community

  • #CloudNativeSummit gathers CNCF projects, SIGs, and working groups to update each other on the latest cloud native technologies, updates on CNCF projects, and hands on technical sharing. Save the 7th of April.
  • SIG Observability‌‌‌‌
    A new SIG is in its forming process: SIG Observability focuses on topics pertaining to the observation of cloud native workloads. Goals are the creation of supporting material and best practices for end-users, provide guidance and coordination for CNCF projects working within the SIG’s scope.
  • Kubernetes Event-driven Autoscaling (KEDA)‌‌‌‌
    Keda is now an official CNCF Sandbox project 🎉. KEDA serves as a Kubernetes Metrics Server and allows users to define autoscaling rules using a dedicated Kubernetes custom resource definition. It integrates with the Horizontal Pod Autoscaler and has no external dependencies.
  • HashiCorp Joins the CNCF‌‌‌‌
    HashiCrops goal is improving the integration of their tooling with Kubernetes and other CNCF projects. We definitely advocate for joining the CNCF it.
  • CNCF projects surpass one billion lines of code: A Q&A with DevStats creator Łukasz Gryglicki‌‌‌‌‌‌
    DevStats "... downloads several petabytes of data representing every public GitHub action of the last six years, and throws out nearly all of it except for the ~1,400 repositories of CNCF-hosted projects. It processes the data and stores it in a Postgres database, and downloads updated data every hour.".
