Developing the Connected World

Building Your Cloud Connectivity Fabric

For years, developers and architects have driven the business forward with codified infrastructure tools and automated pipelines that deliver superhuman results. You have accelerated digital transformation with Kubernetes and microservices; now it's time to complete the vision by stitching clouds, architectures and APIs together to achieve end-to-end connectivity for the modern enterprise.

Kong Summit 2021 will give you the tools to build new ideas, create actionable best practices and get hands-on with guiding your organization through transformation, delivering exciting innovation and securing connectivity all the way to the edge.

We’re proud to announce that this year’s Kong Summit will be a hybrid live event with the option to attend in person or digitally. We believe in a world where hybrid experiences will be a cornerstone of innovation, and so we’re excited to provide that flexibility to all our customers, community members, and industry peers!
