Statement of Interest

I am interested in making OpenStack a great platform for all sizes of cloud, and sharing that news with the world.




John joined the TC in April 2016 for a one year term. Before that he was Nova PTL for the Liberty and Mitaka releases. He has been involved with OpenStack as a Software Developer since late 2010. He started with Citrix's Project Olympus private cloud packaging of OpenStack, and soon after working upstream to help maintain OpenStack's support for XenServer. In early 2013 I started working on the Rackspace Public Cloud and is now a Principle Engineer and chair of the Rackspace OpenStack Technical Leadership group. He has spoken at many events including the OpenStack Summit, Xen Summit, FOSDEM IaaS Dev Room, CloudEast, London OpenStack Meetup Group, and many other internal and external events. John works from his home near Cambridge, UK.
