The Kubernetes community abides by the CNCF code of conduct. Here is an excerpt:
As contributors and maintainers of this project, and in the interest of fostering an open and welcoming community, we pledge to respect all people who contribute through reporting issues, posting feature requests, updating documentation, submitting pull requests or patches, and other activities.
Kubernetes encompasses many projects, organized into SIGs. Some communication has moved into SIG-specific channels - see a given SIG subdirectory for details.
Nevertheless, below find a list of many general channels, groups and meetings devoted to Kubernetes.
Real time discussion at kubernetes.slack.io:
Discussions on most channels are archived at kubernetes.slackarchive.io. Start archiving by inviting the slackarchive bot to a channel via
To add new channels, contact one of the admins in the #slack-admins channel. Our guidelines are here.
If you have a question about Kubernetes or have a problem using it, please start with the troubleshooting guide.
If that doesn’t answer your questions, or if you think you found a bug, please file an issue.
Kubernetes mailing lists are hosted through Google Groups. To receive these lists’ emails, join the groups relevant to you, as you would any other Google Group.
In order to foster real time collaboration there are many working documents and notes that are taken in Google Docs, and then transferred to this repository if appropriate.
To access these documents, you must subscribe to the kubernetes-dev mailing list as outlined above, as these documents are shared automatically with anyone who subscribes to that list.
Office hours are held once a month. Please refer to this document to learn more.
We have PUBLIC and RECORDED weekly meeting every Thursday at 10am US Pacific Time over Zoom.
Map that to your local time with this timezone table.
To be added to the calendar items, join the Google group kubernetes-community-video-chat for further instructions.
If you have a topic you’d like to present or would like to see discussed, please propose a specific date on the Kubernetes Community Meeting Agenda.
Kubernetes is the main focus of CloudNativeCon/KubeCon, held every spring in Europe and winter in North America. Information about these and other community events is available on the CNCF events pages.
