While we’re completing the training sessions in Paris, I’m glad to share the results of the Upstream Training in Japan on Oct.10-11 in Tokyo. The training session was organized by the Japanese user group with 19 people attending from 11 different Japanese companies and organizations and 7 mentors helping them. There are a lot more developers interested in becoming contributors to OpenStack so the Japanese community is organizing more sessions. The next one will be in February, co-located with OpenStack Days Tokyo. Trainees chose bugs from Launchpad and engaged with mentors two weeks before the live, in-person sessions.
The Japanese community has shared lots more pictures, showing impressive work on the collaborative LEGO building role playing game. Congratulations to the Japanese community for being the first to bring home the practice of OpenStack Upstream Training.
