VSHN.timer #57: Highlights of KubeCon + CloudNativeCon Europe 2020

Welcome to another VSHN.timer! Every Monday, 5 links related to Kubernetes, OpenShift, CI / CD, and DevOps; all stuff coming out of our own chat system, making us think, laugh, or simply work better.

This week we’re going to talk about the most important announcements made during last week’s KubeCon + CloudNativeCon Europe 2020.

1. Did you know? It turns out there are 6.5 million cloud native developers worldwide, almost 2 million more than last year! That’s the main result of a survey of the CNCF. More and more developers are using cloud native technologies and Kubernetes to deploy their workloads.

4. We’re very excited to learn that Red Hat and Intuit will collaborate in the Argo CD project! Argo CD is one of the key pieces of our Project Syn, and we look forward to see how together they bring Argo CD to a new level.
