OpenStack has participated in Open Source Day at the Grace Hopper
Conference for the last 5 years and this year it is in Orlando on October
3rd. Due to unforeseen circumstances we are one lead mentor short to
participate this year and are looking for someone willing to help lead the
session. The Anita Borg Institute will provide a ticket for the entire
conference, the downside is you or your company will be responsible for
your travel, lodging and food. This year CityNetwork is supplying the VM
infrastructure for us to use.

The session submitted is as follows:

Participants will sign up for the necessary accounts needed to contribute
to OpenStack and install Git and Gerrit. They will configure their systems
and learn how to file bugs and review code within the Open Dev
infrastructure. Due to time and resource requirements the groups will be
given a virtual machine running Devstack in which to create their own theme
for the Horizon Dashboard. The group will decide on which humanitarian
effort they wish to support but suggestions will be provided for those
groups that can not decide. The group will also work as a team to locate
the necessary documentation on the OpenStack site if they have not done so
in preparation.

The selected Project Manager will lead these discussions as well as making
sure efforts are staying on track to meet the deadline of the

The Developers in the group will work to locate the necessary files and
directories on the VM in order to complete their task. They will be in
charge of creating/changing the necessary files to create a new theme
utilizing SCSS and restarting any services needed to implement.

The Graphic Designer if present will create any necessary graphics for the
theme and will either scp them themselves to the virtual machine or provide
to the developer. If there is no designated graphic designer the PM and
devs will divide this duty up.

After the themes are designed relevant files will be scped back down to the
participants machines and they will be able to commit their code for review
in a sandbox environment for other groups to review.

If you are interested in participating please let me know by July 20th as
we need to send additional information to the OSD folks on July 21st.

Any questions please reach out on the lists, IRC,  or privately!
