In this talk, we will discuss successes, challenges and opportunities found by participating in the Outreachy internship with OpenStack as discovered by an intern and her mentors. The intern, Aija, worked on the implementation of a new industrial protocol, Redfish. Her mentors, Dmitry and Ilya, did their best to provide the context of the project to Aija and help her make progress, for example, by connecting her with Redfish authors, when its documentation proved insufficient. The organizational, technical and psychological aspects that have arisen and needed to be dealt with during this collaborative effort will be explored. We will share the most important lessons learned and offer ideas on how to effectively engage, coordinate and empower the open source developers.
