You Sir, Sir Vey

The User Survey [1] provides users an opportunity to influence the community and software direction. Up until now the User Survey has been targeted at operators responsible for deploying and maintaining OpenStack powered clouds, with good reason. If you can't deploy OpenStack, you have nowhere to start. Now that there has been many successful deployments of OpenStack, both public and private, it's time for the beginning of a shift in focus of OpenStack's audience. A new section of questions and answers in the survey are focused on the true users of OpenStack. Application developers, those developers who create applications that will run on OpenStack powered clouds, and application operators, those operators who deploy applications running on OpenStack powered clouds. We need to better understand what tools they are using, their requirements, and what's missing from our ecosystem. [1] https://www.openstack.org/user-survey/
