Transforming organizations with OpenStack
OpenStack environments have been enabling positive change for hundreds of large scale adopters for years. Overstock.com, Walmart, Workday, AT&T, CERN and many others have shared amazing stories of their success with OpenStack. This, however, is a bigger story about using OpenStack AND the development tooling around it. Testing every commit. Gated merges. Fixing bugs upstream first. Config as code and code as conversation. We used OpenStack, Gerrit, Zuul and Jenkins to transform how a dozen globally distributed teams work together and radically improved how they develop, test and deploy software. This is the story of how we got there and the incredible payoff in collaboration and development velocity.
