Tales from the Ship: Navigating the OpenStack Community Seas

As the OpenStack community has exploded in size, certain processes and
procedures were put in place in order to allow for more effective
governance and management of the myriad projects that comprise the
OpenStack ecosystem. Tooling was developed around blueprint and design
development, source code management, code reviews, and team
communication, all with the ostensible goal of providing more consistent
and transparent management of project direction.

However, with the introduction of these many processes and tools came a
burden to new contributors as well as a need for mentorship programs to
nurture and guide individuals and organizations into being good
OpenStack community citizens. This talk is a guide to navigating these
processes and tools. It's designed as a tool to help new folks get
introduced to the community, as well as a guide for old hats to mentor

We will cover the following topics:
  • The OpenStack community and governance

  • Tools we use in the community

  • Review and code best practices

  • Tips and techniques for best interacting with community members

  • Embracing the ebb and flow of corporate and individual agendas

Jay will present the above guide, with Geoff Hollingworth from Ericsson
providing real-world experience in how applying these recommendations
can change a company's experience with the OpenStack community.
