How to get your Idea into Upstream OpenStack

You have your code working, it solves your problem, but now its time to get it upstream. What to do next? What should I have done?

Maybe we can use lessons from Harper Lee's To Kill a Mockingbird to improve how new and established OpenStack contributors work together?

John will share some of the lessons learnt from his OpenStack Journey, including his time as a private cloud packager, vendor driver maintainer, public cloud operator, nova-core, nova-specs-core, Blueprint Czar, Release CPL and now Nova Project Team Lead (PTL).
