Cloud Native Network Functions (CNF) Working Group Kick-off

Thursday, November 19 | Time: 11:00 AM – 12:00 PM EST

Join us for the kick-off meeting of the Cloud Native Network Functions (CNF) Working Group. The goal for the group is to create a software conformance program, similar to the Kubernetes Conformance Program, that any telco application implementation can use to demonstrate that they are conformant and interoperable with cloud native principles. This will aid companies such as communications service providers and large scale enterprises, running internal telecommunications-like infrastructure, to better understand what cloud native means for telecommunications workloads and help build consensus around industry adoption of cloud native technologies.

See https://github.com/cncf/cnf-conformance/pull/450 for background.

CNCF End User Community Reception (and How To Juggle It All!)

Friday, November 20 | Time: 10:45 AM – 1:00 PM EST

The CNCF End User Community Reception (and How To Juggle It All!), hosted by Cheryl Hung and Katie Gamanji, will bring together cloud native users to share best practices and lessons learned. Our 2+ hours together will be an informal conversation where attendees can meet peers and learn how to navigate and contribute to the cloud native community. But chatting about juggling it all wouldn’t be complete without learning how to truly juggle! Bring three pairs of socks, a good attitude, and give yourself some space while we break up our discussions with Jeff Civillico and learn a new trick to impress our friends and colleagues.

In order to participate, your organization must be a member of the CNCF End User Community.

How to Register: Contact chung@linuxfoundation.org with any questions.
