Meet Our Contributors - Ask Us Anything!

When Slack seems like it’s going too fast, and you just need a quick answer from a human…

Meet Our Contributors gives you a monthly one-hour opportunity to ask questions about our upstream community, watch interviews with our contributors, and participate in peer code reviews.

When:

Every first Wednesday of the month at the following times. Grab a copy of the calendar to yours from kubernetes.io/community * 02:30pm UTC * 08:00pm UTC

Tune into the Kubernetes YouTube Channel to follow along with video and #meet-our-contributors on Slack for questions and discourse.

What’s on-topic:

  • How our contributors got started with k8s
  • Advice for getting attention on your PR
  • GitHub tooling and automation
  • Your first commit
  • kubernetes/community
  • Testing

What’s off-topic:

Submitting questions and/or code for review/walk through:

Questions:

Questions will be on a first-come, first-served basis. First half will be dedicated to questions for contributors and the second half, we will pick a problem (in advance) for peer code review.

Code snip / PR for peer code review / Suggestion for part of codebase walk through:

  • At least 24 hours before the session to slack channel (#meet-our-contributors)

Problems will be picked based on time commitment needed, skills of the reviewer, and if a large amount are submitted, need for the project.

Call for Volunteers:

Contributors - sign up to answer questions!

Expectations of volunteers: * Be on 5 mins early. You can look at questions in the queue by joining the #meet-our-contributors slack channel to give yourself some prep. * Expect questions about the contribution process, membership, navigating the kubernetes seas, testing, and general questions about you and your path to open source/kubernetes. It’s ok if you don’t know the answer! * We will be using video chat (zoom but live streaming through YouTube) but voice only is fine if you are more comfortable with that. * Be willing to provide suggestions and feedback to make this better!
