Getting Started with Open Source Software Development

The session will highlight my learning as a developer during the journey as a new contributor starting to contribute after attending a New Contributor Workshop during KCD Bengaluru to becoming a regular contributor to K8s (Graduated CNCF Project).

I will share the nuances of working together in the community and will focus on areas that need a lot of contributors now especially with the "chop wood and carry water" kind of work that could be easily done by students.

I will further focus on how various sigs runs mentoring cohort for contributors to grow up the contributing ladder and learn technologies necessary for taking leadership or helping the leadership, I have been part of such mentoring cohort under dev-commudle and now I'm a moderator of the cdn-dev mailing list.

Also I will try to focus on how new contributors loose interest while looking for good-first-issues, and I will try to emphasize the importance of regular sig meetings and discussions and help they have helped me to come up with solutions to help the project.
