KubeCon + CloudNativeCon NA - Roadmap to Becoming a CNCF Ambassador

This year the Cloud Native Computing Foundation (CNCF) is hosting it's bi-annual event KubeCon + CloudNativeCon NA in Chicago from 6-9 November 2023.

I continue to submit to both the EU and NA editions, with varying success to date. This year was no different and I submitted two sessions. 

The first was a workshop / tutorial type of session and the second was a bit of an outlier where I teamed up with a surprise co-speaker.

The schedule was posted this last week and one of my sessions was accepted, so let's see what I submitted and what will be on the schedule in Chicago in November.

Below are the two sessions I submitted, with the first being the accepted talk which I will be co-presenting with Katie Greenley, who leads Community Engagement + Outreach, CNCF for the Ambassador program!

Our session will be on Wednesday, 8 November from 16:30-17:05 local time:

Roadmap to Becoming a CNCF Ambassador

The CNCF Ambassador program is designed for individuals who are passionate about cloud native technologies and want to contribute to the community. Becoming an ambassador is a great opportunity to enhance your knowledge, gain visibility within the industry, and help drive the adoption of cloud-native technologies. The road to becoming an ambassador might seem intimidating, scary, or just impossible, but it does not have to be. We've put together a roadmap that leads you to the title of CNCF Ambassador. In this session a current ambassador and the community manager share the stage to bring you insights into achieving the title of CNCF Ambassador. Whether you are a developer, student, or seasoned professional, this talk provides attendees with 5 actionable insights needed to take your cloud-native skills to the next level and become a CNCF Ambassador. Join us to learn how you can contribute to the community and advance your career by taking the road to the CNCF Ambassador community.

Room: W176

Track: Cloud Native Experience

The following was not selected. It was based on my free online workshop and so I was looking for the opportunity to share this tutorial / hands-on session, but not this time around.

Prometheus Fundamentals - Introduction Workshop

Ready to break free from vendor lock-in and predatory pricing from your SaaS observability vendor? It’s time to learn more about Prometheus, a free and open-source systems monitoring and alerting tool kit that enables you to discover, collect, and query your observability data. Join us for this workshop designed to expand your knowledge of open-source observability tools, including how they are used and how they are different from the proprietary instrumentation you use today. This hands-on workshop is designed to help central observability team leaders, engineering managers, and site reliability engineers (SREs) get enough background to start moving their teams away from proprietary instrumentation and get them started with open-source observability. During the workshop, you will install Prometheus, collect metrics, and learn how to effectively run it in your observability stack. Get started today and so your team can hit the ground running with open-source observability!

Looking forward to seeing you all there in Chicago and sharing how you too can easily become a CNCF Ambassador too!
