Abstract of the talk…
This talk will walk through how to get started contributing to Kubernetes, combatting imposter syndrome, the many other ways you can get started contributing to K8s other than by writing code, and the benefits to joining a community such as K8s.
Rin is a Technical Community Builder at Camunda. They enjoy discussing all things open source, with a particular focus on diversity in tech, improving hiring pipelines in OSS for those that are neurodivergent, and removing accessibility barriers to learning programming.
Rin is also a Member of Kubernetes, a contributor to Spinnaker, involved in the Kubernetes Contributor Experience SIG, and is a Storyteller on the Kubernetes Upstream Marketing Team. When not immersed in all things OSS and cloud-native, they can be found hanging out with their wife and pets, making candles, cooking, or gaming.
Savitha is a Senior Platform Engineer at MathWorks. She has been working with container technologies for the past 5 years and use Kubernetes in her day to day job. She also contributes to the Kubernetes ecosystem, currently involved with release, security, mentoring, and documentation efforts.
