OpenStack Developer Summit: Heat Followup
Of particular importance to many in the community is the work around maturing the autoscaling feature in OpenStack Heat. There was a fantastic session at the summit, facilitated by the bow-tied and most dapper Ken Wronkiewicz (his notes from the Summit were published on the Rackspace blog).
In preparation for the session, the following resources were created:
The discussion at the Summit indicated strong interest in building a REST API for the existing autoscaling feature. Needless to say, there is a lot involved in this, touching upon significant OpenStack components like Quantum, LBaaS, and Ceilometer. Once the appropriate code is in place, a REST API will need to be created, features will need to be expanded/added, etc., and we'll be off and running :-)
Lots to do, and lots of great energy and excitement around this to keep us all chugging through this cycle.
On that note, we'd like to send out a special "thanks" to all the countless folks who worked so hard to make ODS happen. This event anchors us in a most excellent way, providing the insight and fuel that supports future development work so well!
