In the fast-paced world of OpenStack development, we often focus on short-term needs like bug fixes and new features. The Oslo Program takes a longer view of the health and sustainability of the project. Our mission is to make OpenStack more maintainable by addressing cross-project code reuse and architectural issues. In this presentation we will cover the origins of Oslo and the processes and tools the team uses to improve OpenStack from the bottom up, making it easier to deploy, more approachable for new contributors, and sustainable for long-term use.

Last week I started a new job and I’m very excited for the opportunity to work with the OpenStack team at HP. This new position is different for me in a couple of ways. HP as a company is larger and has a much longer history than the start-ups and smaller companies I’m used to working for. There are pros and cons to that, but I think for right now in this field the pros outweigh the cons, especially because of the work that I will be doing in the new role.
