As a graduated CNCF project, Helm is well-known as the package manager for Kubernetes. Despite being established for years, Helm continues to require ongoing work in the realm of growing the maintainer community. Join long-time and new Helm maintainers as we discuss scaling an open source project, illustrated by specifics from Helm’s journey.
