We think that it can solve a lot of issues around guidance for new users and generally improving the experience of interacting with Neutron. Possibly an alternative persona for novice users?

Hey guys,

Sorry for my delayed response here…just coming back from maternity leave.

I’ve been waiting and hoping since the Portland summit that the curvature work you have done would be brought in to Horizon. A definite +1 from me from a user experience point of view. It would be great to have a solid plan on how this could work with or be additional to the Orchestration and Network Topology pieces that currently exist in Horizon.

Let me know if I can help out with any design review, wireframe, or usability testing aspects.
