In this week’s DevOps news, Cloud Native Computing Foundation and SlashData release findings from their bi-annual State of Cloud Native Development Report. Perhaps not surprising, researchers found that the population of cloud native developers is growing, with 1.8 million more than in Q2 2019. Among the 6.5 million developers, 2.7 million use Kubernetes, and 4 million use serverless architectures and cloud functions.
CNCF also reports that 60% of backend developers use containers in their work, a 10% year-over-year increase. As you’d expect in light of this, the use of container orchestration tools has also grown — by 7%.
