OpenStack software development is centered around the git and gerrit systems to promote the aspect of community programming.
Git is an open source version control system that allows many software developers to work on a given project without requiring them to share a common network.
Gerrit is a free, web-based team code collaboration tool which integrates closely with git and allows developers in a team to review each other's modifications to the source code using a web browser and approve or reject those changes.
In this session we will walk-through participants to open a bug in a test system and then submit a test patch to a repository in OpenStack. The process involves learning about git along with a cheat sheet of most useful commands and review process in Gerrit. Participants will walk away with working knowledge on these tools.
Participants will walk away with working knowledge of git and gerrit. This will empower them to become contributers to the OpenStack Community.
