Many operators of Open Source software, including OpenStack, believe they're simply consumers of upstream development. I think there's a better way. In my presentation, I'll show how the unique perspective of operators can help in the design and development process and make for a more well rounded community.

We'll talk about strategies to help operators get more engaged in the community. Including how participation doesn't always have to be code, why operators are important to the design/spec process, and how "devops" should mean more than just writing automation.
