Cloud Native Rejekts is the b-side conference giving a second chance to the many wonderful, but rejected, talks leading into KubeCon + CloudNativeCon.

The Cloud Native Rejekts will be an in-person conference. We hope to see you in Amsterdam, Netherlands on April 16 on the heels of KubeCon EU 2023.

See you in April!
