It’s becoming a habit: the OpenStack Foundation will repeat in Vancouver the Upstream Training program to accelerate the speed at which new OpenStack contributors are successful at integrating their contributions into OpenStack. If you’re a new OpenStack contributor or plan on becoming one soon, you should sign up for the next OpenStack Upstream Training in Vancouver, May 16-17. Participation is strongly advised also for first time participants to OpenStack Design Summit. We’ve done it before the Summits in Atlanta and Paris and participants loved it.
With over 2000 developers from 80 different companies worldwide, OpenStack is one of the largest collaborative software-development projects. Because of its size, it is characterized by a huge diversity in social norms and technical conventions. These can significantly slow down the speed at which changes by newcomers are integrated in the OpenStack project.
OpenStack Foundation is training new OpenStack developers and documentation writers to ensure bug fixes or features are accepted in the OpenStack project in a minimum amount of time and as little struggle as possible. Students are required to work on real-life bug fixes or new features during two days of real-life classes and online mentoring, until the work is accepted by OpenStack.
The live two-day class teaches developers to navigate the intricacies of the project’s technical tools and social interactions. In followup sessions, the students benefit from individual online sessions to help them resolve any remaining problems they might have. Get all the details on the wiki.
Enrolment for the training session in Vancouver is open: register and reserve your seat for OpenStack Upstream Training in Vancouver, May 16-17.
