What Science Knows About Happiness That Could Transform OpenStack

Until 20 years ago, the field of happiness was nearly empty. Scientist were more kean to study diseases than something as simple as why are we happy?

In this session, I will explain what led me to learn the science of happiness, what are those learnings, and how they are directly connected to contributing to OpenStack.

I will present 10 propositions every OpenStack contributor could take, at the individual level, the projejct team level, or more globally. Those propositions will not only increase the happiness level of contributors, they will increase the value and impact of their contributions.

Concrete ideas backed by scientific studies, and my personal experiments to improve the way they are contributing to OpenStack.
