ChangBo is a candidate in the January 2021 Board Elections .


What is your relationship to the Open Infrastructure Foundation, and why is its success important to you? What would you say is your biggest contribution to Open Infrastructure Foundation's success to date?


I have several  roles in  community,  as developer I have been contributing upstream since 2012,  including Nova, Cinder,  Oslo etc.  


As one of OpenStack evangelists in China,  I help promote OpenStack technologies in several meet-ups   and hosted several meet-ups . 


am willing to expand the multi architecture infrastructure ecology and enhance the widespread use of  ARM.



Describe your experience with other non profits or serving as a board member. How does your experience prepare you for the role of a board member?


I served as individual Director of OpenStack Foundation in 2017/2018/2019 , and know the key areas of OpenStack Foundation should focus on.


I got feedback from community and involved some discussions like merge PTG back into Summit, bring  OpenInfra Summit to mainland China


What do you see as the Board's role in Open Infrastructure Foundation's success?


The foundation board is important for the success of OpenStack. The board have been making the OpenStack ecosystem running on the right track,

we  have been moving to host other projects  like Zuul, Kata Containers, Airship, and Starling X, I believe OpenStack Foundation will play a vital role in the open source ecosystem and in the future of cloud technology.


What do you think the top priority of the Board should be over the next year?


As infrastructure continues to evolve with new use cases,  which more and more rely on infrastructure , OpenStack projects can’t meet all the requirements for cloud customers,  we need integrate with open source technologies and collaboration amongst open source communities.

I believe the top priority is that gathering consensus, concentrating resources, solving the key issues related to the long-term development :

–  Attract more people to contribute for OpenStack and other projects and facilitate their development work all over the world, keep diversity.

–   Collaborate with adjacent communities, integrate of open infrastructure projects  to  deliver  cloud ready ecosystem for users.
