Statement of Interest

To continue to grow the community and make it a more enjoyable place to work for contributors.

Bio

Kendall is an Upstream Developer Advocate at the Open Infrastructure Foundation based in the United States. She first started working on OpenStack during the Liberty release (2015) on Cinder and since then been involved in Release Management, StoryBoard, the Women of OpenStack (WoO), the First Contact SIG, the Contributor Guide, and OpenStack Upstream Institute.


She’s recently gotten more involved in the Kubernetes community helping to bridge it with the OpenStack community via SIG Cloud Provider and provider OpenStack. 


When she is not evangelizing about the awesomeness of OpenStack, bringing people into the community, binding open source communities together, or working to make upstream development in open source a friendlier place, she can be found reading Harry Potter, watching Doctor Who, or out on a photo taking adventure.
