Google Summer of Code
Kubernetes is happy to announce that we have participated in the Google Summer of Code (GSoC) program under the Cloud Native Computing Foundation (CNCF) in 2017 and 2018 and as an independent organization in 2015. The details for 2019 can be found here.
Please see the main program page for general information about the program, such as its purpose, timeline, eligibility requirements, and how to apply.
What is Kubernetes?
Kubernetes is an open-source system for automating deployment, scaling, and management of containerized applications. It groups containers that make up an application into logical units for easy management and discovery. Kubernetes builds upon 15 years of experience of running production workloads at Google, combined with best-of-breed ideas and practices from the community. Please see kubernetes.io for more details.
What are SIGs?
Kubernetes is a set of projects, each shepherded by a special interest group (SIG). To get a grasp of the projects that we work on, check out the complete list of SIGs.
This slide deck provides an overview of how the Kubernetes community is organized.
- Mailing List: development announcements and discussions appear on the Google group
kubernetes-dev(send mail to firstname.lastname@example.org).
- Slack: #gsoc-apps channel on the Kubernetes Slack. You can get an invite here.
As part of the application process, the Google Summer of Code program recommends that candidates make small contributions to the project they intend to apply for. To start working on the project, make sure to fill out the CLA and check if you have the right environment with this guide. The README in the community repo details these things and more.
Please read the guides and FAQs to get an idea of what it means to participate in the program.
The coordinators can be contacted at any time. The easiest way is to send a slack message.
Do you have an idea for a task that is suitable for this program? Contact the mentors or coordinators! Or even better, volunteer for mentoring an intern during the work on your idea!
