Since the first OpenStack Bug Smash was held in Shanghai in April 2015, Bug Smash has been a regular event that precedes each OpenStack release. Chinese OpenStack developers are invited to fix bugs, share related projects they’ve been working on, and collaborate to integrate new features developed in China into the OpenStack community.
The sixth China OpenStack Bug Smash brought together 50 outstanding OpenStackers from 14 organizations and institutes of higher education, including Huawei, Intel, China Mobile, 99Cloud, FiberHome, Inspur, Mirantis, and UMCloud. Jay Pipes, the core developer of OpenStack Nova, was also invited to attend this event and share his technical insights.
In total, over 600 bugs have been fixed at the six OpenStack Bug Smash events hosted in China. Chinese OpenStackers have demonstrated their prowess in the open source field, helping the OpenStack community thrive in China. Huawei both uses and helps enhance open source, playing an active role in organizing OpenStack Bug Smash.
