Collaboration and contribution
Sean Roberts is a current OpenStack Board Director plus he works with all things related to OpenStack and Software Defined Infrastructure at Yahoo. He is co-leading the OpenStack community training project which aims to provide instruction materials for all OpenStack user groups. He has been leading the San Francisco OpenStack user group for the past two years. Over the last year, they have held over 45 meetings, have over 3,000 members, and 500 active members. As a result of his work with the user groups, he was 'promoted' to be an OpenStack ambassador.
His background includes developing and operating infrastructure at ADP, EA, EDS, Genentech, and Stanford. He also holds various OpenStack Foundation Board committee assignments and is a member of the Executive Committee for IEEE MSST.
"OpenStack has been a huge success in 2013. Along with that success there are many new voices and ideas. The Board will need to continue the promotion of OpenStack and new user adoption, while keeping the founding spirit of collaboration and meritocracy alive and well into 2014."
