Hi folks,

We have had about five new ATCs to Kolla over the last month.  The four biggest impact areas for new contributors to make an improvement in the code is related to:

  *   Documentation
  *   Functional gating
  *   Docker containers
  *   Ansible roles for the Docker containers

I have noticed that the new successful contributors start out writing documentation for the Kolla project.  Interestingly most of these new contributors are in APAC; therefore English is a second language.  What is fascinating is these contributors make the best of it, and through our native English speaker reviewers produce high quality native-speaking documentation here:


One immediate area folks could help out if they want to improve the Kolla project Is writing per-service documentation that follows the style here:


We need documentation for the following services:
HA Guide
Design Guide

If your not a native english speaker, it is no problem!  One of the core reviewers that is a native english speaker will be happy to offer editing suggestions on grammar/spelling/syntax. The hard part is the technical aspect of things, which is where you can really help out!  Once some documentation work is done, the new contributors generally have a much better understanding of Kolla which puts you in a position to make bigger impacts around Kolla's other 3 focus areas.

If your a new OpenStack developer looking for a hot OpenStack project to work on with a fantastic friendly enthusiastic community that will allow you to obtain mastery in Container based software deployment, OpenStack deployment, Docker, and Ansible, Kolla could use your attention.
