NEW TO CLOUD? CHECK OUT - "CLOUDCAST BASICS"
Topic 1 - Welcome to the show Leonard, this is another in a series on getting involved with the community. How did you get started with the CNCF and Kubernetes?
Topic 2 - What made you get started with the Open Source Software & the CNCF? If you had to recommend a path for someone to get started, would you advise them to follow the same path or a different path?
Topic 3 - It appears you started through the shadow program in Kubernetes 1.23 and worked your way up to Release Team Lead for 1.26. Tell everyone a little bit about the program and your experience. Are you going to do it again?
Topic 4 - I would imagine getting a new version of a large project like Kubernetes out the door is a lot of work and coordination of a lot of people. How did you handle that?
Topic 5 - Not all CNCF projects are as big as Kubernetes. How are the release cycles on smaller projects handled? Less Governance, Less Community Involvement, etc.
Topic 6 - You are the Co-Chair CNCF TAG Environmental Sustainability, tell everyone a little about that and your goals and motivations there.
