Statement of Interest

I want to sell OpenStack "stuff" to as many people as possible and make lots of money. No really.




After 20+ years’ experience in deep technical roles, I embraced OpenStack in my home country, Australia, and became passionate about it recognising it's immense potential the world over. I soon recognised however, that the Australian OpenStack community needed a real boost.  So a little more than 3 years ago I founded the Australian OpenStack User Group (AOSUG).  The response has been fantastic, and we have grown to over 850 members in that 3 years.   While much of my time has been spent nurturing the OpenStack community in Australia, I have been actively supporting the growth of the Indian OpenStack community.  I've spent time in India promoting and speaking about OpenStack, and I actively take part in meetups online around the world whenever possible.

I am deeply humble for the opportunity to have represented the community builders, operators, developers and end users of OpenStack on the Foundation's Board of Directors – everyone, including the people who don’t write the code, but still have lots to offer.  I plan on continuing to work to promote OpenStack in every possible way, so that it becomes ubiquitous and full-featured, while remaining, most importantly, truly open.

My twitter is @tristangoode and I also quite like beer, I'm Australian!
