Kong Summit Keynotes and Upcoming Content!

Last month we had our first annual Kong Summit, and I am thrilled to report that it was a great success! With several hundred attendees, 25 talks and sessions, and too many great conversations to count, the amount of positive feedback that we have received has been nothing short of incredible. From the start, I have known that there is something very special about our community, and the level of community involvement at Summit is another indicator of just what a powerful group you all are. It is very humbling and motivating to have such amazing community support, and I am proud of the work our team put in to make our first Summit a great two days. For those that weren’t able to make it, we hope to see you next year at Kong Summit ’19, and in the meantime, we’re excited to share the highlights from this year’s show with you all!


As a thank you to our community, we will also be releasing all of the talks and sessions, starting with Keynote presentations given by our CEO Augusto “Aghi” Marrietti, our CTO Marco Palladino, and our Principal Engineer Thibault Charbonnier. These can be viewed below.

I would also like to thank our wonderful guest speakers Kolton Andrus, Chad Fowler, Joseph Jacks, Dennis Kelly, Jonathan Kratter, Kin Lane, Erin Mckean, Komal Mangtani, Vijay Narayanan, Neha Narkhede, Alexandra Noonan, Naoya Okada, Marcel Da Cruz Pinto, Christian Posta, Guillermo Rauch, Chris Richardson, Colin Schaub, Gwen Shapira, and Jason Walker. All of your sessions were thought-provoking and informative, and we look forward to having you return for future Kong Summits!

We’ll follow up over the coming weeks with more talks from industry experts, Kong users, and leaders from Kong Inc. Here’s to a great first Kong Summit, and many more to come!
