By October 13, 2022July 24th, 2023Blog, Staff

Spinnaker Summit is the obvious place to learn about Spinnaker, but also the best one. And this year it is co-located with KubeCon + CloudNativeCon and CD Summit in Detroit on October 24-25, 2022. 

The Summit will bring together a global community of collaborators, focused on the future of Spinnaker, the open-source continuous delivery platform. The event will include hands-on workshops, keynotes, happy hours, and more. Targeted toward developers, architects, operators, and technical leaders, this event will be a great place to share knowledge and build connections.
