F 150

Follow OpenStack Release Manager Thierry Carrez for a peek behind the scenes and learn how OpenStack is produced. We’ll explore how the principles and processes set by the Release management, Infrastructure and QA teams all make OpenStack possible. We’ll look into the technical and community challenges we ran into and explain how we overcame them.

This talk should appeal to technical contributors from any project who want to learn more about open source project management at scale. No specific knowledge of OpenStack or other technical expertise is required.
