Tim is responsible for the group at CERN, the European Laboratory for Particle Physics, which manages the compute infrastructure for 13,000 physicists around the world to support fundamental research. He previously worked as a Unix kernel developer at IBM along with managing large scale Unix production deployments and services for Deutsche Bank in Europe.
His team is running the CERN OpenStack cloud which has been in production since July 2013 and is currently around 280,000 cores. This cloud provides processing power to analyse the data from the Large Hadron Collider and other experiments which produce around 60PB a year. The practical experiences are shared on the blog at http://openstack-in-production.blogspot.fr/

Monty currently leads the team that works on the Zuul project for CI/CD in Red Hat's CTO Office. He's the founder, core member and past PTL of the OpenStack Infra team which runs CI and developer tooling for OpenStack. He's a past member of both the OpenStack Technical Committee and the OpenStack Foundation Board of Directors. Monty is the PTL of the shade/python-openstacksdk project and is the maintainer of the Ansible modules for consuming OpenStack. Before his OpenStack days he was a core developer on Drizzle and was a Senior Consultant for MySQL, Inc.
Monty has a degree in Theatre Directing and went to grad school at CalArts in lighting design. The intersection of fields has led him to start more than one business around developing technology for and related to live performance. Recently Monty served as an Adjunct Professor at NYU's Tisch School of the Arts teaching a class on programming related to lighting design. If you let him, he'll talk to you WAY too much about Scuba Diving.

I've been involved in OpenStack since the earliest days with a focus on ops and building the infrastructure that powers cloud and storage.
On the board, I've lead the DefCore initative and founded the Product Working Group. I also work to help screen and coach new Gold Members. I am a strong advocate for operators and interoperability.
I believe that the OpenStack community is service by having a clearly defined core. I feel that we need to do a better job defining and building an ecosystem around the project.
I maintain an open balanced perspective and respect other people's points of view.
You can read more about my thoughts and positions regarding OpenStack and Cloud on my blog: http://RobHirschfeld.com.

Egle wants OpenStack to be regarded as one of the most successful open source projects, with a great community to back it. During the past year, Egle has been co-chair of Interop WG (DefCore committee), where she has seen that the impact interop has on OpenStack is crucial. Interoperability is one of the top OpenStack priorities, and she continues leading the efforts to increase it.
