This article is aimed at open source technology enthusiasts who are interested in container technologies and have hands-on experience with Kubernetes.
A special interest group (SIG) is a community within a larger organisation. Its members have a shared interest in advancing a specific area of knowledge, learning or technology, for which they co-operate to affect or to produce solutions within their particular field, and may communicate, meet and organise conferences. Kubernetes Special Interest Groups are designed for developers and other community members to meet regularly and bond over their interests within the Kubernetes community. They contribute to an area of the code base, to a sub-project or a related one, and have some ownership over the vision and technical decisions. SIGs are used as a governance and scaling mechanism. As Kubernetes has become bigger and more people want to contribute to it, there is a need to prevent the community from evolving into a monolithic structure. Hence the community collectively decided to distribute the decision making, and SIGs are its way of doing that.
