Re:Fresh Lounges | Outdoor Space for Nourishment + Reflection
Monday, October 11 – Friday, October 15
8:00 AM – 6:00 PM PDT
Los Angeles Convention Center, Concourse + Petree Plaza + Dock G off Hall G
Excited but nervous about being part of a crowd again? Escape to one of our outdoor lounge spaces for fresh air and refreshment. A place to get away from the bustle of the showcase and the overheard conference calls in the hallway. We ask and encourage attendees to use this as a quieter space (no phone calls or loud conversations) to decompress. Lunch will be served in these areas, so be prepared for a tad more noise during that time frame each day.
Virtual Games Lounge
Monday, October 11 – Friday, October 15 | Online
Take some time to unwind from networking and sessions in our games lounge sponsored by Red Hat. Try your hand at six different games – all built with open source software – and learn about the tools the developers used to create them. Looking to get involved? Check out the project page for each game to contribute anything from code to design. Then, head over to OpenJam.io for more details on open source game jams.
Thank You to Our Sponsor!

Virtual + In-Person at the Project Pavilion in Solutions Showcase (South Hall)
Bug Bash brings developers together in a live, asynchronous, and cooperative model to find and fix as many bugs as possible on open source projects. The Bash takes place over a short timeframe, driving interest and engagement within the developer community. Each project interested in participating has a team of community members working through a list of bugs curated by the Bug Bash team and OS project maintainers ahead of the Bash. To date, we’ve had 30+ developers find and fix over 700 bugs on CNCF projects, and we are expanding this to a global scale, focusing specifically on the Kubernetes ecosystem in the coming months. To learn more about how these Bashes are making the Kubernetes projects you already use more secure, sign up as a maintainer or contributor to the hybrid digital/live event at KubeCon North America!
