Why, Where, What and How to contribute to OpenStack

This talk should appeal to curious developers interested in learning about OpenStack development and why contributing to it is a smart, interesting, and simple move. Although familiarity with open source development is assumed, no previous knowledge of OpenStack itself is necessary.

OpenStack is a software stack written in Python that you can use to deploy public and private "Infrastructure as a service" providers, potentially at massive scale. This talk will look into why contributing to OpenStack should be interesting to you personally, where in the various pieces and teams of OpenStack you should consider helping, what various shapes your contribution to OpenStack may take, and finally deep dive in the details of our development infrastructure and how you can actually make your first contribution.
