Bio

Michael Davies has been working with OpenStack since 2013, as part of the Rackspace Cloud Builders Australia team, tinkering with Ironic, Nova and OpenStack-Ansible ever since. As penalty for his sins, he is now a core reviewer on the openstack-ansible-os_ironic repository. Michael is a self-proclaimed open source zealot, holds to the Agile manifesto, and is an advocate for modern software engineering practices.  All of these get him into trouble, but especially when he tries to combine them.

In his spare time, Michael assists the running of the linux.conf.au open source conference, primarily through helping to lead the papers selection committee. Away from the keyboard, Michael attempts to run, pulls a pretty mean espresso, and spend as much time as he can with his wife and 3 kids, enjoying the Australian outdoors.
