[Diversity] Grace Hopper Lead Co-Mentor(s) needed

Amy Marrich-2
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 demonstrations.

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!

Thanks,

Amy (spotz)
