Why We Craft OpenStack (Featuring Software Developer Diane Fleming)

OpenStack Summit Atlanta is in the books. It was a great event that brought together thousands of developers, operators and users of OpenStack. There was a ton of excitement around the project. With that in mind, we want 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, Diane Fleming, Rackspace Software Developer and one of top contributors to OpenStack documentation, talks about how documenting OpenStack APIs– from Nova to Swift –helps her contribute to the community in a major way.

“I love documenting APIs and I guess the reason for that is because it’s something I can figure out,” Fleming said. “I can look at the code. I can run the code. I can see the results. I can see when things are broken. And, I don’t know, it just makes me happy when I get things to work.”
