It has been long since I gave an outreachy update. We have less than a month to wind up outreachy :( so sad . I will give a quick update on what I have been working on.

Dynamically loading openstack credentials in kubernetes

The goal of this task is store the keystone credentials in a more flexible way using a secret object.

I opened a WIP pull request #59802.

From feedback from my mentor dims on this PR, we will not switch totally to using secrets but will find a way of falling back using the credentials specified in /etc/kubernetes/cloud-config if secrets are not specified.

I took me long figuring out secrets…. and after totally getting lost, I finally implemented something that made sense to me. …

Kubernetes is an open-source platform designed to automate deploying, scaling, and operating application containers. It eliminates many of the manual processes involved in deploying and scaling containerized applications.

In order for us to use kubernetes, we have to install and run it some where like on an operating system or in the cloud.

The default installer for kubernetes is kubeadm and in this post, I will describe deployment of kubernetes 1.9 to openstack using kubeadm. …

We are a month into outreachy with abit of a break recently but we are back into action.

This blog gives an update following my last update . It has been a time of learning and relearning a couple of things as evident in this tweet.

Closed pull request on testing volume

This was a test that was meant for a commit on expanding cinder volumes. It was a simple test that took me quite time to figure out the usage of resource.Quantity …


This year I am taking part in outreachy round 15 what a happy moment for me :).

Outreachy provides three-month internships for people from groups traditionally underrepresented in tech. Inspired by an alumni I applied for the December — March cohort, I decided to give it a try with a lot of fear since I had not done any real world programming before.

For the transition from fear to the successful contributions I made during the application period, I give credit to my mentor Davanum Sirivanus (dims) and Joe Topjian (gophercloud maintainer). …
