To help change the world.
Devananda began contributing to OpenStack Nova in 2012. A year later, he started the Ironic project, adding bare metal provisioning to the growing cloud platform. He continues to lead Ironic's upstream developer community, juggling the contributions of half a dozen hardware vendors while also facilitating collaboration between multiple teams inside HP, as everyone works on a common goal: enabling support for cutting-edge hardware capabilities in this growing open source project.
He is also serving on the OpenStack Technical Committee, and can often be found speaking at open source conferences around the world. He has spoken previously at OSCON, LCA, MySQL Conference, and many OpenStack summits.
Before joining HP, Devananda worked at Percona, providing scalability and performance consulting services to many well-known companies.
