Feedback form is now closed.

The maintainers of Crossplane, a CNCF Incubating project, will lead this session that will introduce the project to new attendees, as well as dive into the finer details of Crossplane’s functionality and roadmap. We will explain how Crossplane enables you to compose cloud infrastructure and services into your custom platform APIs, and how best to get started building a platform of your own. We will take a tour through the key features included in the latest releases, what problems and use cases they are solving, and how you can adopt them into your control planes. Finally, there will be an interactive opportunity to engage with the maintainers, ask questions, and influence the future of the project direction.
