Speaker Profile:


Rico 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 serve this community as OpenStack Technical Committee (TC) member, Heat PTL, and some other roles.

With the above roles, I contribute to this community with commit and review codes, join/host events, presentations, and bridge up discussions.

From my standpoint, OpenInfra foundation provides solid support to open source communities. Which guarantees the quality for community development. Also guarantees community development base on four opens. And those factors matter to open source development. And matters to me too.
