Kubernetes Community

Welcome to the Kubernetes community!

This is the starting point for joining and contributing to the Kubernetes community - improving docs, improving code, giving talks etc.

To learn more about the project structure and organization, please refer to Project Governance information.


The communication page lists communication channels like chat, issues, mailing lists, conferences, etc.

For more specific topics, try a SIG.


Kubernetes is a set of subprojects, each shepherded by a Special Interest Group (SIG).

A first step to contributing is to pick from the list of kubernetes SIGs.

A SIG can have its own policy for contribution, described in a README or CONTRIBUTING file in the SIG folder in this repo (e.g. sig-cli/CONTRIBUTING), and its own mailing list, slack channel, etc.

If you want to edit details about a SIG (e.g. its weekly meeting time or its leads), please follow these instructions that detail how our docs are auto-generated.
