Are you a student trying to pursue cloud-native? Are you perplexed and interested in learning how to build a career in cloud-native? Attend the panel discussion to learn how hackathons can help you advance in cloud-native development. Hackathons are an excellent way to hone collaborative abilities, communication skills, and engineering skills all while keeping it fun, beginner-friendly, and a great experience over weekends. The panel will demonstrate how students can contribute to CNCF projects while participating in hackathons, specifically cloud-native hackathons. The panel is made up of students who have competed in over 145 global hackathons collectively in the past 12 months (winning a collective of 33 out of them and 5 together as a team) The panelists are also mentors, judges, and organizers at student hackathons and will share their experience as an organizer with those folks who are willing to bring the cloud-native culture via hackathons to their local community. The panelists will demonstrate how organizing CNCF hackathons could help attract more young people and students to contribute.
