kubernetes mailing lists

Google Group

Weekly Community Video Conference

The weekly community meeting provides an opportunity for the different SIGs, WGs and other parts of the community to come together. More information about joining the weekly community meeting is available on our agenda working document

Special Interest Groups (SIG) and Working Groups

Much of the community activity is organized into a community meeting, numerous SIGs and time bounded WGs. SIGs follow these guidelines although each of these groups may operate a little differently depending on their needs and workflow. Each groups material is in its subdirectory in this project.

The community meeting calendar is available as an iCal to subscribe to (simply copy and paste the url into any calendar product that supports the iCal format) or html to view.
