KCD Texas is an event organized by the Cloud Native Computing Foundation (CNCF) to unite the Kubernetes community in Texas for knowledge sharing, networking, and collaboration.
We will offer hands-on workshops and interactive sessions where attendees can gain practical experience by working on Kubernetes-related projects under the guidance of experienced mentors. This allows participants to depend on their understanding of Kubernetes concepts and gain confidence in implementing them in their environments.
KCD Texas will be hosted along with Texas Linux Festival 2024 at the Palmer Events Center in Austin. Texas Linux Fest is a state-wide annual community-run conference for Linux and open source software users and enthusiasts. Whether you use free software and Linux at home, in your place of business, in your school or non-profit, or you are simply curious, Texas Linux Fest offers something for you.
You can purchase tickets to KCD Texas through the Texas Linux Fest website. Your registration for Texas Linux Fest includes KCD Texas.
The CFP for KCD Texas will open on December 12th, 2023. Submissions are due by February 8th, 2024.
We are interested in submissions on the following topics (but not limited to):
CRI-O, Containerd, and Docker
Microservices or migration case studies
Containerized application development
Cloud Native storage and networking
Contributing to Cloud Native Projects
Open Source Ecosystem
Kubernetes in Production on the Edge
Container Networking (CNI)
Kubernetes Batch Workloads
We are accepting proposals for 25-minute presentations, 5-minute lightning talks, and 90-minute workshops.
We are particularly interested in introductory talks, case studies by end users, new solutions, new projects, and fun hacks. All presentations must involve open source cloud native technology in some way and focus on understanding the technology, process, or concepts involved rather than commercial products.
New presenters are encouraged to apply! KCD Texas is committed to offering a diverse speaker lineup.
As with all CNCF community events, KCD Texas is subject to the CNCF Code of Conduct, in addition to the Texas Linux Fest Code of Conduct. Should you witness behavior that is a violation of this code of conduct, please bring it to one of the organizing committee members immediately.
