This web page will walk you through the stages of learning to develop applications to run on OpenStack.
Need a place to start learning OpenStack, or your own personal OpenStack development environment?
Want to quickly learn how to manipulate OpenStack using the OpenStack SDKs?
Think of these as curated playlists of OpenStack configurations. These Reference Architectures are based on real-world workloads. The Reference Architecture document will give you a good idea of which core and optional projects might be used by the workload. In addition, each Reference Architecture includes sample Heat and or Murano packages which will allow you to reproduce the workload in your own enviornment.
A software development kit (SDK) contains code, examples, and documentation that you use to create OpenStack cloud applications in the language of your choice.
An application programming interface (API) lets you access service capabilities through predefined functions.
To learn how to use the APIs, see the OpenStack API Guide.
Documentation treated like code, powered by the community - interested? Here's how to contribute .
