During this lighting talk, Catherine Paganini, co-creator and maintainer of the Cloud Native Glossary, will explain what the Glossary is, why you should use it, and how to contribute. Officially launched at KubeCon NA 2021, the Cloud Native Glossary (glossary.cncf.io) aims at explaining complex technical terms in simple words. As cloud native becomes more mainstream, increasingly more people seek to understand what these technologies, approaches, and concepts mean. Whether searching for a service mesh definition or trying to understand what CI/CD is, we need a trusted source with definitions anyone can understand — even without a computer science degree. But even if explained in simple terms, English definitions can still be hard to grasp for non-native speakers. To address this, nine teams set out to localize the Glossary in their native languages. With seven languages partially live and two more coming soon, there is still a lot of work ahead. Join this session to learn where to find it, and how to use and contribute to it.
