Cloud Native Computing Foundation and Linux Foundation Release Line-up for KubeCon + CloudNativeCon + Open Source Summit + AI_dev China 2024


The Cloud Native Computing Foundation (CNCF), which builds sustainable ecosystems for cloud native software and Linux Foundation, the nonprofit organization enabling mass innovation through open source, announced the schedule for KubeCon + CloudNativeCon + Open Source Summit + AI_dev China. The conference will take place in Hong Kong from August 21 – 23, 2024, and will feature 145 sessions, including 20 maintainer track sessions.

For the first time, KubeCon + CloudNativeCon and Open Source Summit will join together with AI_dev: Open Source GenAI & ML Summit, which was previously held in San Jose, California last December, and will be held in Paris, France, 19-21 June.  AI_dev is a nexus for developers interested in delving into the intricate realm of open source generative AI and machine learning. At the heart of this event is the belief that open source is the engine of innovation in AI and also a necessary tool for creating security and balance around AI. Attendees will have the opportunity to join hands-on sessions, engage in robust technical conversations, and harness the collective expertise to push the boundaries of AI with open source.

Representatives from organizations from all over Asia including Ant Group, Alibaba Cloud, ByteDance, DaoCloud, OPPO, and more will cover the most pressing topics in cloud native innovation, open source development, and the intricate realm of generative AI and ML. Maintainers and end users of CNCF-hosted projects will give deep dives on the technologies and provide insights into the impact.

“The number of cloud native projects developed in China continues to grow and every year we look forward to this event to see first-hand the momentum across China,” said Chris Aniszczyk, CTO of the CNCF. “We are thrilled to partner once again with Open Source Summit and have AI_dev join the line-up this year to advance intricate and evolving conversations around AI and open source. Together, these three events cover so many important topics and I look forward to all the progress we will make as a community together this summer in China.”

Led by co-chairs Paco Xu and Miley Fu, more than 55 members of the program committee reviewed 522 submissions to curate a relevant and educational line up. The schedule offers compelling content for attendees with all levels of technical background, and sessions will be presented in either English or Chinese; captioning will be available if translation is needed.
