This community continues to gain momentum as many established technology and service companies are making the move from evaluation to deployment. That being said, OpenStack development is one of the most desired skills in enterprise IT and, consequently, there is a rise in demand for new developers and contributors.

The reality is there is a multitude of myths about joining the OpenStack community, which is deterring developers from participating as frequently as they could be. With help from SUSE's OpenStack development team, eWEEK exposes common OpenStack development myths, shedding light on the truth of how to become more involved in this fast-growing community.
