Kubernetes is happy to announce that we have applied to participate in the Google Summer of Code (GSoC) program under the Cloud Native Computing Foundation (CNCF), running from January 2018 to August 2018.
Please see the main program page for general information about the program, such as its purpose, timeline, eligibility requirements, and how to apply.
The following schedule is taken from the official timeline.
Kubernetes is an open-source system for automating deployment, scaling, and management of containerized applications. It groups containers that make up an application into logical units for easy management and discovery. Kubernetes builds upon 15 years of experience of running production workloads at Google, combined with best-of-breed ideas and practices from the community. Please see kubernetes.io for more details.
Kubernetes is a set of projects, each shepherded by a special interest group (SIG). To get a grasp of the projects that we work on, check out the complete list of SIGs.
This slide deck provides an overview of how the Kubernetes community is organized.
