So You Want to Be an OpenStack Contributor?

Sign up or log in to save this event to your list and see who's attending!

So you want to contribute to OpenStack, but not sure where to start? In this hands-on workshop we will guide you through the steps required to become an OpenStack contributor. We will start out with the basics of signing up and setting up Launchpad, Git, and Gerrit. Followed by joining the OpenStack Foundation, signing the contributor license agreement, and most importantly, finding something for you to work on (or you can bring your own bug). Even if you are not much into programming, there are other ways you can contribute, such as helping out with OpenStack documentation and translating to other languages. At the end of this workshop, you will have what it takes to become an active technical contributor.
