I’ve been using Kubernetes for a while now and decided it was time to be a responsible open-source citizen, and contribute some code. So I started combing their issue tracker, looking for a relatively small and straight-forward patch that I could cut my teeth on. If you're also thinking of contributing to Kubernetes, I hope you can learn something from my experience.
Let's face it: the tech industry is not the most diverse. This is particularly true when it comes to engineering in general, and even more so in the operations community (i.e. Ops, DevOps, Infrastructure, etc.).
