Viet OpenStack first webinar 5 Nov. 2018

Yesterday, 5 November 2018, at 21:00 UTC+7, about 25 Vietnamese developers attended the very first webinar of the Vietnam OpenStack User Group [1]. This is part of a series of Upstream Contribution Training based on the OpenStack Upstream Institute [2]. The topic is "How to contribute to OpenStack".

Searchlight weekly report - Stein R-23

The week after Stein-1 milestone is a little bit quiet. There are only some trivial fix on spec typos, tox version, etc.

Also, we need to keep up with the community's goal, the upgrade checker. The effort is being processed by the goal's champion [2]. I will review and merge the patch this week if it goes well.

Last August in Hanoi, I have had a chance to talk to the OpenStack Vietnam User Group (VietStack) about container monitoring as well as welcome contributors to the Searchlight project. The OpenInfa Day [1] was great and I made friends with many awesome OpenStack developers. You can check out the presentation slides here [2].
