Why We Craft OpenStack (Featuring Rackspace Software Developer Ed Leafe)

As OpenStack Summit Atlanta fast approaches, we wanted to dig deeper into the past, present and future of OpenStack. In this video series, we hear straight from some of OpenStack’s community members from Rackspace about how the fast-growing open source project has evolved, what it needs to continue thriving and what it means to them personally.

In the video below, Ed Leafe, Rackspace Software Developer, talks about the power of the developer community as both makers and users of OpenStack.

“It’s much, much easier to experiment when you can have the source code right on your system,” Leafe said. “You can change it. You can play around with it. You can release it and say ‘hey, what do you think?’ and get feedback from it. To me, that’s OpenStack. That’s where OpenStack will be key in that development.”

Be sure to check out previous installments in the “Why We Craft OpenStack” video series featuring Kurt Griffiths, Rackspace Principal Architect, and Jarret Raim, Rackspace Product Manager. We look forward to seeing you in Atlanta for OpenStack Summit, May 12 through May 16.
