Cloud native with Saiyam — Motivating February
6 min read
Hello lovely people 👋 hope you are doing good! Let’s motivate each other and help each other in growing more. I believe once you have the knowledge and experience you can empower others so that they can learn, take your mentorship and grow in their lives. We all need to start welcoming the newcomers in the technology field and guide them whenever we can.
February has been an interesting month as I had really nice conversation with the community and some organisations who are doing rad stuff in cloud native ecosystem, I personally learned a lot to understand the products they are running on the cloud and the problem they are solving. I believe talking to customers/orgs make you think more about what people are actually using to deploy their stuff for their customers and helping them solve a particular problem.
February is also celebrated as a love month throughout the globe, so let’s take this to cloud native level and celebrate all the projects that helped you, maintainers who made it happen, tag your favourite maintainer and favourite project on Twitter with hashtag #loveopensource and show then the love you feel for them as a maintainer or the project.
I am also glad to announce that I have 5 Org memberships and 2 Platinum memberships who are supporting my work with 11 individual members. Thank you all and if you want to support my work feel free to check out membership for Org membership please reach out first.
