In this talk Mike Turek will guide the audience through getting started with contributing to OpenStack, beginning with a brief introduction to OpenStack and its various components. This will be followed by a discussion of setting up a development environment using Devstack. The talk will then focus on a sample bug, showing the audience how to debug in this new environment, make and apply changes, and eventually submit a patch. Following that will be a discussion on the life-cycle of a patch, where the audience will learn about the Gerrit review system, along with some best practices when addressing concerns the community may have. The talk will conclude with an overview of the community, highlighting OpenStack's wealth of documentation, active IRC channels, and busy mailing lists, which are all excellent resources for when one has further questions.
