So, you want to contribute to OpenStack...

14 April 3:50pm - 4:40pm @ Room 204

50 minutes conference
OpenStack is currently one of the largest, open-sourced, collaborative software development projects in history. Its size and diversity makes it quite intimidating to a newcomer attempting to 'learn the ropes' and contribute. In this talk, I will discuss some of the basics on getting started in your career as an OpenStack contributor. I will touch on some of the basic social interaction guidelines and starting points as well as the legal prerequisites and technical tools. I will also go over the basic gerrit workflow which covers patch submission and review process.
