The CNCF End User Partner Summit brings together cloud native users to share best practices and lessons learned. The day will start with stories from end users, and their journey to overcome the challenges of adopting cloud native across different industries. It will continue with an unconference, where attendees can meet peers and learn how to navigate and contribute to the cloud native community.

Tickets cost USD $100 which is donated to the diversity scholarship. Your organization must be a member of the CNCF End User Community (https://www.cncf.io/people/end-user-community/) to attend. End user members may purchase up to four tickets, and end user supporters may purchase up to two. Contact chung@linuxfoundation.org with any questions.
