4. Q&A and future plan

Although there were some questions and answers during the whole meeting, group discussion really started when beers and snacks, sponsored by DTT, were served to the attendants. People drank and shared more openly on OpenStack and opportunities it could bring to ICT companies in Vietnam. Everyone was eager for the next meetup, which is tentatively to be held in Ho Chi Minh city. And yes, discussion for Meeting 3 is on the mailing list now. It will be announced very soon :-)

We especially thank Mr. Nguyen Hong Quang, Chairman of VFOSSA and his team for being so supportive in organizing the meetup place. Great hospitalities has made to the success of VietOpenStack Meeting 2.

OpenStack Document Translation Guide

OpenStack uses Transifex to manage translations. OpenStack Manuals are in DocBook format. We slice the documents into short statements, then use Transifex to manage the translation process, and finally converge the translated content into a new copy of DocBook, which will used to generate HTML and PDF versions. The easiest way to contribute to OpenStack is to start by translating the manuals. Getting started is super easy.
