Get Active in Upstream Training

  • There is a continuous effort in helping newcomers join our community by organizing upstream contribution trainings [5][6] before every summit.
    • 1.5 – 2 days of hands-on steps of becoming an active OpenStack contributor.
  • Like everything else, this is a community effort.
    • In preparation for the Boston summit and the upcoming PTG in Atlanta, we are looking for coaches and mentors to help us make the training better.

Project Team Gathering Coordination Tool

  • No central scheduling, beyond assigned rooms to teams and days.
    • Each team arranges their time in their room.
    • List of etherpads [10]
  • We still need centralized communication beyond each room:
    • An event IRC channel: #openstack-ptg on free node IRC
      • Do public service announcements
      • Pings from room to room.
    • An EtherCalc spreadsheet powered dynamic schedule with extra rooms available:
      • One fishbowl
      • A few dark rooms with projectors and screens (not all will have a/v equipment due to budget).
      • Infra is working on setting up EtherCalc
