OpenStack SDKs exist for several programming languages, including Python, Go, Ruby, and many more. For those who don’t wish to write code, users in the *nix world can use Curl at the command line to perform operations.
What about Microsoft Windows administrators? Are they required to learn linux and bash and curl? What if they could use the skills they already have, or learn new skills that are native to the Windows environment, for OpenStack administration? Is there a command line or scripting tool that suits the Windows DevOps world?
One of the more pressing needs in the world of open source software is the need for decent documentation. That covers a lot of territory; from well-commented code (yeah… right) to API guides to the rare – some say mythical – user guide.
