Taking the Long View: How the Oslo Program Reduces Technical Debt

The video from the presentation I gave with Mark McLoghlin at the OpenStack summit last week is online.

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.
