In Case You Missed It
Last week, there was an OpenStack QA Code Sprint for Kilo, where community members gathered to finish some high priority items for the Kilo launch, currently slated for April 30. Matt Treinish, OpenStack Software Engineer at HP shared a blog post about their work with DevStack, Tempest and other bugs that needed to be squashed. For a full account of the week’s work, check out the etherpad.
After four years, Nebula, an OpenStack Gold Member and long-term supporter, announced on April 1 that it is shutting down, prompting an outpour of gratitude from the community for its ongoing contributions to OpenStack.
In response to Nebula’s news, Rob Hirschfeld, an OpenStack board member, relays in his blog post why it’s important for the OpenStack community to care about funds flowing to leaders and contributors, making the connection to the time he invests in DefCore in order to help create healthy vendors.
It’s no April Fools Joke: GoDaddy, an OpenStack user and contributor, announced its Initial Public Offering (IPO), raising $460 million on its first day, causing stock prices to rise more than 30 percent. After GoDaddy recently announced the beta version of its cloud based on OpenStack, it will be interesting to see what’s next to come from this IPO.
More hot Wall Street news comes from ecosystem member, Red Hat, whose shares rose 4.5 percent in after-market trading on Wednesday as the company benefited from higher demand for open-source software and its cloud-based products.

Spun up a new #Openstack Tenet for my wedding website. Possibly overkill.

It is true. We are shutting down today. We’ve had quite the run and have enjoyed every minute “democratizing the cloud” #LLAP
