  • Used nodepool but have no idea how it works?
  • Why do we have 8 jenkins masters?
  • What is this gate I hear so much about?
  • Where should I be cloning repositories from?

As a developer, we'll explain how and what each system in OpenStack Infrastruture does and how you should be using them.
