OpenStack is an open source community project that is unprecided in it’s speed of development and it’s rate of growth even as it has grown very large. The project is integrating hundreds of contributions a day, from hundreds of developers, who are working for hundreds of otherwise competing corporations and organizations, while maintaining a strong focus on code quality.
This requires public automated development infrastructure on a whole new level. The code for this infrastructure is, of course, open source, and itself runs on OpenStack at HP Cloud and Rackspace Cloud. This infrastructure code and it’s matching community development process could be used by other open source community projects. We believe what is working for us could very well work for you.
In this session, a high level overview of the OpenStack Infra Review and CI systems will be presented, and the workaday life of an OpenStack code contributor and an OpenStack code reviewer will be described. We will then solicit questions from the audience, and hopefully explore ways that this system can help your project.
We specifically invite the community managers, project leaders, and core developers of all other large and medium sized projects to attend.
