Panel: Writing the OpenStack Operations Guide in 5 Days

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

This panel will bring together the co-authors of the missing OpenStack Operations Guide, a book written in 5 days for the benefit of the entire OpenStack community. They will discuss the trials and tribulations of writing a book in such a short period of time, from the conception and proposal to the process and publication. The importance of documentation cannot be understated and this panel will highlight the efforts that the doc team are going to in order to produce the documentation necessary for a successful OpenStack ecosystem.

And bring your questions. No subjects are taboo. Ask about the stress, logisitics, collaboration, and whatever else you can think of. Tell us what you thought was missing from the book or what could be improved. Your willing panelists will answer anything!

The first 60 attendees to the panel will get a printed copy of the OpenStack Operations Guide courtesy of Rackspace.
