Now that we’ve finally caught our breath after a fantastic two days at the KubeCon + CloudNativeCon in Shanghai, let’s dive into some of the key highlights and news. The best part is we get to see so many of you so soon again at KubeCon + CloudNativeCon Seattle in December! The sold-out event with more than 2,500 attendees (technologists, maintainers and end users of CNCF’s hosted projects) was full of great keynotes, presentations, discussions and deep dives on projects including Rook, Jaeger, Kubernetes, gRPC, containerd – and many more!
Attendees had the opportunity to hear a slew of compelling talks from CNCF project maintainers, community members and end users including eBay, JD.com and Alibaba. After hosting successful events in Europe and North America the past few years, it’s no wonder China was the next stop on the tour. Asia has seen a spike in of cloud native adoption to the tune of 135% since March 2018.
You can find more information about the tremendous growth of cloud usage in China from CNCF’s Survey. The conference kicked off by welcoming 53 new global members and end users to the Foundation, including several from China such as R&D China Information Technology, Shanghai Qiniu Information Technologies, Beijing Yan Rong Technology and Yuan Ding Technology. The CNCF has 40 members in China, which represents a little more than 10% of the CNCF’s total membership.
