I just gave my presentation at the Havana Conference about how to get started with OpenStack development. A few people asked for my slide deck, so I am posting it here. The talk was taped, and I am sure some more formal release will happen in the future, but I wanted to get this out there for the people who had asked for it.
My subsidised Nokia N800 arrived today, and I’ve been playing with it a little. It’s not immediately obvious how to install software, let alone get root on the thing so you can start developing. More details as I find my way around the wiki.
Let your development team spend a day hacking on a feature they care about. Sounds like a great idea to me. I look around at a lot of the developers I know and they’re running at 50% efficiency because they feel bored doing what the managers say they should the whole time, and the product suffers as a result. Is your company having trouble with staff churn? It’s probably because you don’t let your employees become passionate any more.
