In this session, we will share how you can use the importance of getting involved with the Community bridge internship program to start your contributor journey for the cncf projects. The speakers are Ken Owens, who mentored me on the internship and Darshan, the mentee in this program. Specifically, we will share how CB works, how to get selected etc. In the first half of the talk, Darshan will share the story from the mentee's point of view. He will discuss how he discovered the program, applied, and what the experience was after getting selected. Ken will share his story from the mentor's point of view. He will discuss how he vetted the candidates, what the mentors look out for in the applicants and finally , his experience providing mentorship during the course of the internship and beyond, and the value CB has on the enterprise. Hopefully you will be more encouraged to apply for community bridge after this talk!
