In OpenStack, all our coding is done out in the open. You can read the source code and follow the peer reviews the code went through before it was merged in. Often times, however, the original intent behind a blueprint or feature request gets murky, leaving code reviewers focused on the trees instead of the forest. In this talk, join Brian Rosmaita, Cloud Images Product Manager at Rackspace, as he advocates for full features documented with use cases, prototype press releases, and preliminary FAQ lists to help articulate the vision for features. Brian will share his experiences in working in the Glance project, and offer practical advice on how developers and product managers can work together to improve the overall experience of turning OpenStack ideas into products.
