*Invited Talk Series for the Cloud Computing Course are starting. **First

*Title: Intro to OpenStack Software Platform and Community*

Abstract: "The talk introduces the audience to OpenStack, the fastest
growing open source project to date, and the preeminent open source cloud
operating system. The talk will provide an overview of OpenStack, the
various components involved in running a cloud, and how the various
components communicate amongst themselves. We describe architectural
considerations in designing OpenStack that allow it to be extensible and
allow for rapidly scalable development processes.  As the OpenStack
community has exploded in size, certain processes and procedures were put
in place in order to allow for more effective governance and management of
the myriad projects that comprise the OpenStack ecosystem. Tooling was
developed around blueprint and design development, source code management,
code reviews, and team communication, all with the goal of providing more
consistent and transparent management of project direction. However, with
the introduction of these many processes and tools came a burden to new
contributors as well as a need for mentorship programs to nurture and guide
individuals and organizations into being good OpenStack community
citizens.  This talk also provides a guide to highlight these processes and
tools to help new folks get introduced to the community. We will be
covering the OpenStack community and governance tools we use in the
community Review and code best practices, Tips and techniques for best
interacting with community members etc."
