At KubeCon North America 2021, the Cloud Native Computing Foundation (CNCF) announced a new program called Kubernetes and Cloud Native Associate (KCNA) certification. CNCF already has many advanced courses and certifications for cloud-native technologies. So what is this program about? Katie Gamanji, the Ecosystem Technical Advocate at CNCF explains that this program is meant for beginners and novices of the ecosystem. It can be seen as an onboarding certification that can also benefit managers, executives, and marketing folks who don’t have deep knowledge of these cloud-native technologies.
