About this Episode

Kubernetes, Prometheus, Envoy, containerd ... The list of projects managed by the Cloud Native Computing Foundation is quite extensive, and growing by the month it seems.

But how does the CNCF manage its expansive collection of open source cloud native software projects? How does it decide when a project move from incubation to graduation. Many of these decisions are made by the CNCF's Technical Oversight Committee (TOC). We wanted to find out more about how the TOC operates.

To this end, we invited the TOC chair (and Aqua Security Technology Evangelist) Liz Rice to appear on our newest episode of The New Stack Makers podcast, to discuss all things TOC. We invited Eduardo Silva, who is the core developer for one of the CNCF projects, Fluentd, a multi-platform open source log aggregator. 

Silva, who is also a principle engineer for ARM, discussed his experience in agreeing to work with the CNCF. Last month, Fluentd had "graduated," within the CNCF, moving up from "incubation status."
