Statement of Interest

To help change the world.




Devananda began working on OpenStack "Essex" in 2012. A year later, he started the Ironic project, adding bare metal provisioning to the growing cloud platform. He continues to act as tech lead for the project's developer community while also serving on the OpenStack Technical Committee, and can often be found at open source conferences around the world.

Before joining HP Cloud and contributing to OpenStack, Devananda worked for Percona, providing MySQL scalability and performance consulting services to a few companies. He also contributed to some small open source projects.

He currently lives in cloudy Seattle, enjoying the irony of bettering an open-source cloud platform in a city dominated by closed-source competitors.



I'm involved in the following OpenStack projects: Nova,Ironic,Openstack-ci,Deployment
