Skills:

  • Golang (advanced (not expert))
  • Python (beginner)
  • C++ (advanced (not expert))
  • Java (advanced (not expert))

Area where you’re looking to help: I want to introduce me better in kubernetes and wants to start helping in the parts that need help. But favorite is CLI, API, Runtime and Docs

Time available to commit: 5-10 Hours a week.

Extra: I need to improve my skills, so I can’t do anything really fast, but I’m willing to learn.

I have given this advice many times.

Start with a piece you find interesting. If you like CLI, start at
kubectl. Start at main(). Read it. If it doesn’t make sense, play
with it - add temporary printfs until you understand it. Then write
better comments or rename variables or functions or refactor until the
next person won’t struggle. Proceed.

If you can make it an hour without finding SOMETHING to fix, I will be shocked.

Before long you will be a foremost expert in it and can start
reviewing other people’s code and tackling bigger bugs and features.

None of this code is rocket science. Just start reading it.

Ok Thank you.

I tried it alot of times on different days.

When I want to sign the CLA I can create an Linux Foundation Account, but cannot link it with my github account. Everytime I try this I get the error: There was an error processing your request.

Any methods to solve this problem?

You need to log a ticket/contact the LF – Here is the troubleshooting snippet from the CLA.md doc in the community repo:
"If you encounter any problems signing the CLA, log a ticket with the Linux Foundation ID group through the Linux Foundation Support Site.

Should you have any issues using the LF Support Site, send a message to the backup e-mail support address login-issues@jira.linuxfoundation Someone from the CNCF will respond to your ticket to help."
