Once you’ve recognized your open source heroes on the Open Gratitude wall, stick around at the Google Open Source booth to learn about topics such as open source governance, documentation, open source in ML and gaming, encouraging non-code contributions, and about Google’s open source outreach programs in general. At our booth sessions you can also explore open source projects such as Kubernetes, Istio, Go, and Beam (as well as other Apache projects). Booth office hours run from 10:15am to 7pm Wednesday, July 17, and from 10:15am to 4:10pm on Thursday, July 18. The full schedule will be posted at the booth—please come by and check it out!
In addition to the events at the booth, the Google open source team has two workshops on Tuesday, July 16:
- 9:00 –12:30: Zero to Docs: Hands-On Documentation Workshop
This half-day workshop kicks off with an overview of research-backed documentation best practices. Andrew Chen, Erin McKean, and Aizhamal Nurmamat kyzy lead you through a hands-on exercise in which you'll create the skeleton of a ready-to-deploy documentation website for your open source project.
- 1:30 – 5:00: Hands-on Kubernetes New Contributor Workshop
Paris Pittman takes you through the ins and outs of the Kubernetes contributor community so you can land your first PR. You'll learn about SIGs, the GitHub workflow, its automation and continuous integration (CI), setting up your dev environment, and much more. Stick around until the end, and you'll have time to work on your first PR with the help of current contributors.We also hope you attend the main conference sessions presented by Googlers, especially the keynotes on Wednesday (Built to last: What Google and Microsoft have learned growing open source communities) and Thursday (Be a Docs Star), and the sessions on Wednesday:
