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 works as a Principal Engineer at Rackspace. He is currently the team lead of the OSIC Nova team, working to improve OpenStack for the Enterprise. In April 2016 he joined the OpenStack Technical committee 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 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.
