Namkyu Park is a software engineer working to help startups achieve their missions. He has completed an internship as a software engineer at Bucketplace and worked at several startups. He was a mentee in the Linux Foundation Mentorship Program (Litmus) and is currently a member of LitmusChaos. His areas of interest include GoLang, Kubernetes, cloud-native technologies, CNCF, testing, and performance optimization.
Understanding and adapting to CNCF projects, such as Kubernetes, requires a lot of prior knowledge. This can sometimes discourage people from getting started with Cloud Native open source. In this session, I will share my journey from being a cloud-native novice to an active contributor to Litmus. I will also discuss my experience as a participant in the LFX Mentorship program, where I was provided guidance as a newcomer who wants to contribute to Cloud Native Open Source but is uncertain about how to do so. Finally, I will emphasize the importance of engaging with the cloud native community and the benefits of collaborating in open source projects.
