KubeCon + CloudNativeCon Europe 2020 Keynote Summary: The annual KubeCon + CloudNativeCon Europe event ran as a virtual conference in August.
The annual KubeCon + CloudNativeCon Europe event ran as a virtual conference in August this year, five months later than planned due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Key takeaways included: the cloud native community strives to be inclusive, and it is possible for everyone to contribute in their own way; there is an increasing importance in understanding end-user adoption patterns of technologies; it is essential to recognize and discuss the topics of security, observability, and energy efficiency as more organizations move to the cloud; and the community should always remember (and empathise with) the people, systems, and businesses involved in adopting cloud technologies.
Priyanka Sharma, general manager of the Cloud Native Computing Foundation (CNCF) opened the event by encouraging people from all walks of life to get involved with the CNCF and Kubernetes communities. According to the new State of Cloud Native Development Report there are 6.5 million “cloud native” developers in the world, 1.8 million more than in Q2 2019. The clear call to action by Sharma was to “get involved”; the community strives to be inclusive, and welcomes contributions from engineers, documentation writers, program managers, and people with a range of skills.
Next on the virtual stage was Cheryl Hung, VP ecosystem at the CNCF, who promoted the importance of establishing and examining the "real world" view of cloud native technologies. She discussed the new CNCF end-user Technology Radar that is being created by a group of over 140 companies that are meeting regularly. According to the CNCF announcement blog post, the goal of the CNCF Technology Radar is to share what “tools are actively being used by end users, the tools they would recommend, and their patterns of usage”. The first edition of the Technology Radar focused on continuous delivery.
DevOps and Cloud computing are joined at the hip, now that fact is well appreciated by the organizations that engaged in SaaS cloud and developed applications in the Cloud. During the COVID crisis period, most of the organizations have started using cloud computing services and implementing a cloud-first strategy to establish their remote operations. Similarly, the extended DevOps strategy will make the development process more agile with automated test cases.

The year 2020 has arrived, and its arrival brings a lot of innovations and transformations in the Information and Technology (IT) sector to DevOps technologies.
DevOps is supposed to help streamline the process of taking code changes and getting them to production for users to enjoy. But what exactly does it mean for the process to be "streamlined"? One way to answer this is to start measuring metrics.
