What is Layer5?
While small, the Layer5 community represents the largest collection of
service mesh projects and their maintainers in the world. We build
projects to provide learning environments, deployment and operational best
practices, performance benchmarks, create documentation, share networking
opportunities, and more. Our shared commitment to the open source spirit
pushes Layer5 projects forward. New members are always welcome.
Is it Open Source?
Layer5 projects are open source software. Anyone can download, use, work
on, and share it with others. It's built on principles like collaboration,
globalism, and innovation. Layer5 projects are distributed under the terms
of Apache v2.
Google Summer of Code Participation?
The key component of these projects is our Community. This community,
which you will join as an participant in Google Summer of Code, is
improving the world of diverse cloud native systems. Your contributions
will affect people you've never met. The Layer5 community includes
