I had worked in OpenInfra(OpenStack) since 2015 in Huawei, at that time I was a leader of contributor team who worked full-time in OpenInfra community. I enjoyed this journey. Now I transfer to EasyStack and I am still head of open source domain.
On the other hand, EasyStack is one of the gold members of OpenInfra foundation, all our products are built on open source projects, especially projects of OIF foundation such as nova, neutron, cinder, kata and so on. All of EasyStack members believe we can make more efforts with OIF foundation on cloud tech to make product helpful to end users.
Before I joint EasyStack, I had much experience on running open source projects and community building, I was one of the founders and infrastructure designer for several open source projects of Huawei, such as openEuler, openGauss. And also had practice of developing open source strategy how to make these projects more successful.
As one of community developers in China, I helped in holding or joint OpenStack technologies meetup in several places and had several speech related OpenStack technologies, e.g. OpenStack Days China.
I think the board’s responsibility is to understand the community location of the whole ecosystem, e.g. the tech ecosystem, the partners ecosystem, the open source culture and so on. And to make the suitable strategy for long-term growth of community. I had work full-time with open source community in China for several years and had experience in building community, so I understand the China open source culture, the thoughts of developers, the needs of Chinese company better. I think I can share my experience to help more guys to join in.
I think the top priority of the Board for next year should be to promote the model of projects management. As far as I know there are some projects housed in big-tent with few users. We need to setup the mechanism to filter the valuable projects via popularity with different levels, and then build a landscape for them.
