We’re about to open registration for OpenStack Upstream Training, and we needed to glue together Google Spreadsheets, Trello, and email to streamline the registration process.
I had my doubts about Mailgun, because there was no suggested Mailgun library. Instead, the docs recommended developers just install Requests. I expected to write some boilerplate as a result, but they proved me wrong.
Check out the Mailgun docs for sending an email. Examples in 6 languages and curl, and the examples update with your API endpoints and auth data if you’re logged in. That’s some Twilio level documentation, and I’m now a huge fan.
If you want to see how we tie the systems together, check out the openstack-upstream-registrar code. I’d like to morph that short script into a small web application that will guide developers through the ATC process. Reach out if you’d like to help!
Back on the topic of the training itself: we’re always looking for more in-class mentors and assistants! If you’ll be in Tokyo on October 25th and 26th, please consider registering as an assistant.
