Kubernetes Community Days (KCD) are a massive onramp for new people to the cloud native community and a great way to have non-code contributions to the community. This talk by KCD core organizers past and present will show the impact of the program on the community and how to get started or involved. In 2021, the program connected over 7,500 attendees across 12 countries in six languages to cloud native. It also had contributor summits, student days, and hands on workshops. By attending, the audience will learn what a KCD is, how the program works, how to avoid the perils and pitfalls of planning a community event, and what their community will get out of a KCD. Audience members will leave inspired to start or get involved in a KCD in their own region.
