Kubernetes has become the default container orchestrator framework, setting the standards for application deployment in a distributed environment. In the past years, numerous tools have been developed to extend Kubernetes capabilities and enhance its features. Simultaneously, the expansion of the technology landscape prompted the growth of the adopter base and the number of scenarios where cloud native can be applied. The organic adoption and development of new tools, created the ecosystem and community as we know it today. This keynote will feature the 3 core principles that define the next generation's identity of cloud native practitioners using a reverse engineering approach. It will present the interoperability of tools, inclusivity at the community and adopters level, and a culture of change and education that drives the ubiquity of the cloud native.
