Blog: A Look Back and What’s in Store for Kubernetes Contributor Summits

Seattle Contributor Summit

Seattle Contributor Summit

As our contributing community grows in great numbers, with more than 16,000 contributors this year across 150+ GitHub repositories, it’s important to provide face to face connections for our large distributed teams to have opportunities for collaboration and learning. In Contributor Experience, our methodology with planning events is a lot like our documentation; we build from personas – interests, skills, and motivators to name a few. This way we ensure there is valuable content and learning for everyone.

We build the contributor summits around you:

  • New Contributor
  • Current Contributor
    • docs
    • code
    • community management
  • Subproject OWNERs
  • Special Interest Group (SIG) / Working Group (WG) Chair or Tech Lead
  • Active Contributors
  • Casual Contributors
New Contributor Workshop

New Contributor Workshop

These personas combined with ample feedback from previous events, produce the altogether experience that welcomed over 600 contributors in Copenhagen (May), Shanghai(November), and Seattle(December) in 2018. Seattle’s event drew over 300+ contributors, equal to Shanghai and Copenhagen combined, for the 6th contributor event in Kubernetes history. In true Kubernetes fashion, we expect another record breaking year of attendance. We’ve pre-ordered 900+ contributor patches, a tradition, and we are looking forward to giving them to you!

With that said…
Save the Dates:
Barcelona: May 19th (evening) and 20th (all day)
Shanghai: June 24th (all day)
San Diego: November 18th, 19th, and activities in KubeCon/CloudNativeCon week

In an effort of continual improvement, here’s what to expect from us this year:

  • Large new contributor workshops and contributor socials at all three events expected to break previous attendance records
  • A multiple track event in San Diego for all contributor types including workshops, birds of a feather, lightning talks and more
  • Addition of a “201” / “Intermediate” edition of the new contributor workshop in San Diego
  • An event website!
  • Follow along with updates: kubernetes-dev@googlegroups.com is our main communication hub as always; however, we will also blog here, our Thursday Kubernetes Community Meeting, twitter, SIG meetings, event site, discuss.kubernetes.io, and #contributor-summit on Slack.
  • Opportunities to get involved: We still have 2019 roles available!
    Reach out to Contributor Experience via community@kubernetes.io, stop by a Wednesday SIG update meeting, or catch us on Slack (#sig-contribex).

Blog: Join us for the 2019 KubeCon Diversity Lunch & Hack

Authors: Kiran Oliver, Podcast Producer, The New Stack

Join us for the 2019 KubeCon Diversity Lunch & Hack: Building Tech Skills & An Inclusive Community – Sponsored by Google Cloud and VMware

Registration for the Diversity Lunch opens today, May 2nd, 2019. To register, go to the main KubeCon + CloudNativeCon EU schedule, then log in to your Sched account, and confirm your attendance to the Diversity Lunch. Please sign up ASAP once the link is live, as spaces will fill quickly. We filled the event in just a few days last year, and anticipate doing so again this year.

The 2019 KubeCon Diversity Lunch & Hack will be held at the Fira Gran Via Barcelona Hall 8.0 Room F1 on May 22nd, 2019 from 12:30-14:00.

If you’ve never attended a Diversity Lunch before, not to worry. All are welcome, and there’s a variety of things to experience and discuss.

First things first, let’s establish some ground rules:

This is a safe space. What does that mean? Simple:

  1. Asking for and using people’s pronouns
  2. Absolutely no photography
  3. Awareness of your actions towards others. Do your best to ensure that you contribute towards making this environment welcoming, safe, and inclusive for all.
  4. Please avoid tech-heavy arbitrary community slang/jargon [keep in mind that not all of us are developers, many are tech-adjacent and/or new to the community]
  5. Act with care and empathy towards your fellow community members at all times.

This event also follows the Code of Conduct for all CNCF events.

We have run a very successful diversity lunch event before. This isn’t a trial run, nor is it a proof of concept. We had a fun, productive, and educational conversation last year in Seattle, and hope to do so again this year. As 2018’s KubeCon + CloudNativeCon in Seattle marked our first Diversity Lunch with pair programming, we hammered out a lot of kinks post-mortem, using that feedback to inform and improve upon our decision making, planning, and organizational process moving forward, to bring you an improved experience at the 2019 KubeCon + CloudNativeCon Diversity Lunch.

Tables not related to pair-programming or hands-on Kubernetes will be led by a moderator, where notes and feedback will then be taken and shared at the end of the lunch and in a post-mortem discussion after KubeCon+CloudNativeCon Barcelona ends, as part of our continuous improvement process. Some of last year’s tables were dedicated to topics that were submitted at registration, such as: security, D&I, service meshes, and more. You can suggest your own table topic on the registration form this year as well, and we highly encourage you to do so, particularly if you do not see your preferred topic or activity of choice listed. Your suggestions will then be used to determine the discussion table tracks that will be available at this year’s Diversity Lunch & Hack.

We hope you are also excited to participate in the ‘Hack’ portion of this ‘Lunch and Hack.’ This breakout track will include a variety of peer-programming exercises led by your fellow Kubernetes community members, with discussion leads working together with attendees hands-on to solve their Kubernetes-related problems in a welcoming, safe environment.

To make this all possible, we need you. Yes, you, to register. As much as we love having groups of diverse people all gather in the same room, we also need allies. If you’re a member of a privileged group or majority, you are welcome and encouraged to join us. Most importantly, we want you to take what you learn and experience at the Diversity Lunch back to both your companies and your open source communities, so that you can help us make positive changes not only within our industry, but beyond. No-one lives [or works] in a bubble. We hope that the things you learn here will carry over and bring about positive change in the world as a whole.

We look forward to seeing you!

Special thanks to Leah Petersen, Sarah Conway and Paris Pittman for their help in editing this post.

Here's How Sony Could Eliminate Game Load Times Altogether In The PlayStation 5
Sony has patented a technology that could reduce or even completely get rid of loading screens in games. Assuming the patent is something Sony chooses to follow through on, the technology could find its way into the company’s upcoming PlayStation 5 console, which is making the switch from a slower mechanical hard drive to a speedy solid state

Microsoft's Secret Surface Weapon May Have A Snapdragon Battery Life Beast Inside
Qualcomm first gave us a taste of its new PC-centric Snapdragon 8cx SoC back in late December, and touted its performance chops with benchmarks against an Intel Core i5 (Kaby Lake-R) processor late last month. We’re now getting word that Microsoft may be eying the Snapdragon 8cx design as an option for future Surface devices.

Samsung Rumored To Launch Mid-Range Galaxy A90 With Flagship SD855 SoC And 5G

Samsung Rumored To Launch Mid-Range Galaxy A90 With Flagship SD855 SoC And 5G
When we think of Samsung’s flagship smartphones, we typically envision the Galaxy S series or the Galaxy Note. These smartphones offer the fastest SoCs, innovative display technologies and the latest and greatest features. But as we’ve seen recently, Samsung is more than willing to bring flagship features down to its mid-range offerings. That

Oppo Showcases World’s First Under-Display Selfie Camera For Smartphones

Oppo Showcases World's First Under-Display Selfie Camera For Smartphones
In the ongoing quest to offer a truly full-front display on a smartphone, Oppo just unveiled the first-ever selfie camera that sits underneath the screen of a handset. The design means not having to contend with a bezel or notch, or any of the existing alternatives, such as a motorized pop-up camera or punch-hole cutout.

We have seen those
