I like to checkout the LI posts for Kubecon as they usually lead to good discussions.

Beyond the top talk tracks, here are some other notable themes and trends:

  • The deeper integration of AI/ML into cloud native platforms is an intriguing area, enabling more intelligent automation and efficiency.
  • I agree service meshes like Istio are really coming into their own and expanding beyond just service-to-service communication to more workloads and use cases. The evolution of these technologies will be interesting to follow.
  • WebAssembly is a big one to watch as it can unlock more flexible and performant applications across platforms and languages. The upcoming Cloud Native Wasm Day event is a great place to dive deeper.
  • Akamai is embracing trends like edge computing, sustainability, and optimizing resource usage. Join us at a wide range of co-located events and sponsorship opportunities to connect with the community.

I look forward to all the transformative discussions and innovations this year's KubeCon + CloudNativeCon promises. It's sure to be an exciting glimpse into the future of cloud-native, with both cutting-edge technology and environmental responsibility at the forefront. The countdown is on for what's shaping up to be an unmissable event!
