OpenStack Community Weekly Newsletter (June 7 – 14)

Welcome Heidi, Margie, Jeremy, and Tom to the OpenStack Foundation team!

Since the Foundation launched last September, we’ve continued to build out a diverse team. This has been a big focus to keep up with the incredible growth in the OpenStack community with another new software release (Grizzly), the Portland Summit with over 2600 people (double San Diego!), and the start of the work to organize the first international Summit in Hong Kong (expecting over 4,000 people).

To keep up with such amazing growth, we expanded the team with new roles to drive adoption of the software, support the development process and grow the OpenStack ecosystem. Heidi Bretz joined as Director of Business Development, Margie Callard as Marketing Manager, Jeremy Stanley as Infrastructure Engineer and Tom Fifield as User Community Manager.

Hosted in Firenze July 1-7, Europython 2013 will see a massive OpenStack-related presence, including one half day training session to get started.
