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


 I have formed a OpenStack based services company, so I can say OpenStack is 100% of my life.  I would do my best to ensure the success of OpenStack. My biggest contribution to OpenStack is helping to develop the community and ecosystem in  APAC area, and to implement the growth of OpenStack cloud for Asian users.  And I also  proactively takes participation the OpenStack foundation mission for building open infrastructure ecosystem, specially focus on edge computing   and container infrastructure,


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 have served as OpenStack board member last two years and I join every F2F meeting or con-call meeting. I also work with different edge communities and served as board member for Akraino projecto. I’m sure If I am re-elected again this year I can help and contribute more to the Open Infrastructure strategy, specially on the edge and AI.  I was the organizer of the first OpenStack Days Taiwan in 2014 and the principal coordinaEtor for Ceph Day APAC 2016 in China, Malaysia, Taiwan, Japan and Korea. I have joined the board meetings many times and I’m very familiar with  APAC communities, I believe  these experiences have helped me understand the responsibilities and the role of being a board member


What do you see as the Board's role in OpenStack's success?


I think the Board's main role is to define the strategy of the OpenStack and Open infrastructure ecosystem, coordinate users requirements and technical development. And to make sure every voice can be heard and discussed. It’s also important now how the board can address an open and profitable ecosystem for the long term. 


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


I think the top priority of the board should be continue the  Open infrastructure Strategic  and build-up community for these strategic focusAreas, It’s also important to co-work with others open source communities related to these Focus Areas.

 And to address the ecosystem from the point of view of application, like 5G, IOT, serverless framework, AI, big data, CI/CD etc.
