About this event

In this virtual event, Joe Beda will be joining us to talk about how the Kubernetes Community came to be and how it works.

Kubernetes is one of the biggest open source projects and is a big part of Cloud Native.

But how do you start to contribute, how is the code split between the SIGs, and how do they tie everything together?

Come join this interview and find out!
