Lightning Talk: What I’ve Learned by Running Local CNCF Chapter Cloud-native Islamabad - Saim Safdar, Neomeric Digitals

I struggled a lot when I started learning about cloud-native technologies because not many people around me were also talking about k8s or other cloud-native things. I always felt shy asking people for help when I got stuck with cloud-native tooling. However, I’ve found that many people are experiencing the same even though opensource is all about engaging with others, helping others and collaborative knowledge, and collaborative power of mind and energy. I want to share how I overcome this challenge of talking about cloud-native language in public while building out my local community. Attendees will walk away from this talk having learned the easy way of learning Kubernetes, how to build out local their own CNCF chapters, how this will help overcome the shyness of asking people for help in public, how to create empathy within the community, how to talk about open-source publicly, and how to start contributing to a worldwide community.
