KubeCon: New Ambassador Program for Traefik Community Members

Containous, the company behind Traefik, the 25k+ Github stars open source cloud-native edge router, announced at KubeCon the Traefik Ambassador Program to better support the Traefik community and invest in its contributors.

The new initiative rewards community members with a variety of Ambassador perks and establishes organizational resources to empower community contributions and involvement.

The Traefik Ambassador Program is open to all developers, and rewards various types of contribution:

  • Code: Add code, fix bugs, or supply documentation.
  • Content: Contribute technical blogs or technical videos on Traefik best practices and implementation how-tos.
  • Community Builder: Be a teacher, speaker, or event organizer. Let the Containous team support your efforts, while you build your own Traefik Meetup Community.
  • Traefik Online Meetup Presenter: Showcase the ways you use Traefik to solve key technical challenges within your organization in front of an online audience.

Version 2.0 of Traefik was recently released, which gives software development teams more control and networking capabilities for their applications.
