CNCF Mentoring Initiatives
The Cloud Native Computing Foundation (CNCF) participates in a variety of mentoring programs. CNCF is a great place to spend time learning, coding, documenting, participating, and contributing. We look forward to your application and your project ideas!
This repository contains resources and information for the CNCF Mentoring Program. The program is designed to match experienced mentors with mentees who are interested in learning about cloud native technologies and contributing to open source projects in the ecosystem.
In this repository, you will find a number of resources to help you get started and make the most of your mentoring experience.
The mentors and mentees folders provide guidance on how to be an effective mentor or mentee. The programs folder provides a list of programs for mentees to work on with their mentors. This initiative is guided by the Mentoring Working Group. More information about meetings, communication and activities can be found in the mentoring-wg section of this repository.
Participation in the CNCF Mentoring Program is open to anyone who is interested in learning about cloud native technologies and contributing to open source projects in the ecosystem.
