## Why KubeCon?
KubeCon North America is the largest Kubernetes and Cloud Native conference in the world, it's the perfect opportunity to immerse ourselves in the latest developments in the world of Cloud Native.
## See us at the Co-located Observability Day on Monday!
As with every KubeCon, there are numerous co-located community day events prior to the main conference. Each KubeCon + CloudNativeCon typically hosts an estimated 8-14 CNCF-hosted co-located events.
In 2023, CNCF-hosted co-located events have covered a wide range of topics, including Argo, Backstage, Cilium, Istio, App Development, Telco, Wasm, Observability, and more. The Tracetest team will be present at the Observability Day, aligning with our goal to contribute to the OpenTelemetry community. Attending? Would love to chat!

OpenTelemetry collector now supports filtering without needing tail sampling. See how Tracetest uses this to filter based on trace state to allow a second pipeline to route span info to Tracetest.
Today you’ll learn how to contribute to the OpenTelemetry Demo repo safely, by learning to write OpenTelemetry code instrumentation and testing your contributions by writing trace-based tests.
