Join panelists from GitHub, IBM, the Kubernetes project, and the Cloud Native Computing Foundation to learn how they are making code more inclusive. They will discuss the momentum behind changes to `master/slave` and similarly offensive technology, the key challenges that lie ahead, and how folks can make the change with resources available. This session will introduce a cross-organizational initiative inclusivenaming.org that aims to help with such efforts.
