Why We Craft OpenStack (Featuring Software Developer Craig Vyvial)

OpenStack Summit Atlanta is in the books. It was a great event that brought together thousands of developers, operators and users of OpenStack. There was a ton of excitement around the project. With that in mind, we want to dig deeper into the past, present and future of OpenStack. In this video series, we hear straight from some of OpenStack’s community members from Rackspace about how the fast-growing open source project has evolved, what it needs to continue thriving, and what it means to them personally.

In the video below, Craig Vyvial, Rackspace Software Developer and member of the Trove project at Rackspace, relays his team’s strategy of reusing existing code to enhance the interoperability of Trove and keep the OpenStack community at the forefront of Trove innovation.

“It really hit my heart seeing that we had open source software that others all around the world were able to contribute to,” said Craig, “you can continue to learn from the community, you can continue to grow your skills, and you can constantly evolve out of this.”

Be sure to check out previous installments in the “Why We Craft OpenStack” video series featuring Rackers Kurt Griffiths, Jarret Raim, Ed Leafe, Chuck Their, Glen Campbell, Anne Gentle and Diane Fleming.
