As the cloud native movement gains momentum, it becomes increasingly important to understand complex technical terms, concepts, and technologies. The CNCF Cloud Native Glossary (glossary.cncf.io) aims to define cloud native concepts in clear and simple language, making them accessible to everyone. In this session, Seokho Son, one of the maintainers of the Cloud Native Glossary and a CNCF Ambassador, will introduce the project and demonstrate how it can be a valuable resource for understanding cloud native terminology. You can use the Glossary to grasp complex terms and make your first contribution to the CNCF and the Cloud Native community. The community eagerly awaits your contributions! Join this session to learn how to utilize and contribute to the Cloud Native Glossary.
