We first launched Cloud Native Community Groups just over a year ago to help the community stay better connected. Since then, the use of the platform has grown dramatically. There are now over 300 active chapters, hosting hundreds of events each year. In addition, many other community events have moved onto the platform too including the Kubernetes Community Days, CNCF Project Community Meetings, and Project Office Hours at KubeCon + CloudNativeCon.
Many groups across the cloud native landscape are moving to CNCGs because they provide an easy way to organize and host events including simple event creation and signup, automated emails and reminders, local sponsorship opportunities, and complete event wrap-ups and analytics. These events also provide a great way to connect with other community members who are interested in all things cloud native all around the world.
