Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

The community of OpenStack Compute project(Nova) is discussing the design and the purpose of a new RESTful API now. The API is called "Nova v3 API".
The features of v3 API are "consistent API naming", "strong input validation", and "clean code".
