Like baking a loaf of Pain Poilâne, technical leadership requires a balance of ingredients and continued practice and refinement of skills to create valuable and positive change. Renowned Parisian baker Lionel Poilâne believed the process is the most important aspect of vision. Cloud native technical leadership isn't any different, it is the exemplification of cloud native values in the communications, decisions, and commitment we make to the ecosystem. As individuals, we are responsible for our “loaves” or work from start to finish. But what does it mean? How can we create a recipe for other technologists to replicate those contributions to our projects and community successes? In this Panel, Technical Leaders across the cloud native ecosystem will share their experiences, insights, and methods to provide accessible explanations on being cloud native technical leaders across an international, diverse community of cloud native technologists.
