The Headlines

Editor’s pick of the highlights from the past week. 

Why I Contribute to the Open Source Community—and You Should Too
Marky Jackson

Marky Johnson shares his journey to becoming a passionate, open-source contributor that all started with a rocket scientist. His post reminds us that open source is welcome to all and invites you to join the fun.

Roaring Elephant podcast: KubeCon + Cloud NativeCon EU preview 

Not a regular news episode this time. Instead, we are starting our KubeCon/CloudNativeCon Amsterdam coverage and have co-chairs Vicki Cheung and Constance Caramanolis on as a guest to tell us all about these conferences. If you’ve never attended one of these, this discussion will give a good idea on what to expect and for seasoned attendees, there is a little bit of a behind-the-scenes look at how these events take form.
