How to Make Your First Upstream Kubernetes Contribution


One of the best ways to join an open source community is to make a contribution, and this article is here to help your first contribution be a successful one.


Join the Kubernetes Slack. Kubernetes is a growing community, which means we’re still figuring out how to document everything, and often the best way to get unstuck is to reach out for help from a more experienced contributor. In fact, on the second Wednesday of each month, we have a “Meet Our Contributors” video chat just for that. Find it in the Kubernetes Community Calendar, and the corresponding Slack channel #meet-our-contributors. You may also find help in the following  #kubernetes-users, #kubernetes-novice, or #sig-contribex.
