Getting over the barrier and start contributing to OpenStack


Is contributing to OpenStack something you want to do but do not know how or find it difficult to start?

You have come to the right session.  This 45 minutes session will have a brief overview of the OpenStack project, the "Big tent" approach as well as the 6 month release cycle.  Introduce the audience DevStack which is  perfect tool for testing code changes locally.

This session will then introduce the workflow of contributing to OpenStack and all the  necessary tools from setting up the development environment, run unit test and to commit code for review. Will introduce the commit best practice,  Gerrit review, Jenkins automated testing at the gate and the code merging process which is a little different than the pull request for other open source projects.

The session will go over how to create a bug report for OpenStack and also to guide the audience to find some software bug or documentation change so the audience can take the baby step to start contributing and get involve in this community.
