The event will feature over 240 sessions, keynotes, lightning talks and breakout sessions, including real-world cloud native technology case studies from experts.

“Last year we hosted more than 23,000 attendees across KubeCon + CloudNativeCon events in Europe, China, and North America, with each event breaking individual attendance records,” said Dan Kohn, executive director of the Cloud Native Computing Foundation. “We are looking forward to kicking off 2020 with the largest European event to date and carrying this momentum throughout the year.”

A program committee of 91 experts and 30 track chairs led by conference co-chairs, Vicki Cheung of Lyft and Constance Caramanolis of Splunk, reviewed 1525 submissions to help create the show’s diverse content slate. The agenda features an impressive mix of topics, including technical sessions, deep-dives, and case studies spanning from technical deep dives and end user stories to beginner level insights. Organizations and project maintainers will discuss CNCF’s hosted projects – including Kubernetes, Prometheus, OpenTracing, Fluentd, gRPC, containerd, CNI, Envoy, Jaeger, Notary, TUF, Vitess, CoreDNS, NATS, Linkerd, Helm, Rook, Harbor, etcd, Open Policy Agent, CRI-O, TiKV, CloudEvents, and Falco.
