      OpenStack Docs Boot Camp Wrap Up

We gathered about 20 writers and developers who wanted to learn about
OpenStack documentation in the Mirantis training room for two days this
week in Mountain View, California. The idea for a docs boot camp came
from the OpenStack Infrastructure team who held one back in June
<http://www.openstack.org/blog/2013/07/infrastructure-bootcamp/>. We
wanted to enable more people to contribute to OpenStack documentation
through in-person training and team building. It's not like a book
sprint, with the goal of a book in five days, but rather a training
session, with questions and answers in real time. Read the full report
from Anne Gentle <http://justwriteclick.com/>.
