I have over 13 years of software development experience working on various projects and technologies. I have 10 years of Java experience and 4 years of Python, with random other languages and tools used throughout my career (XML, JSON, SQL, Eclipse/OSGi, CIM, BASH, Ant, Maven, RPM, Jenkins, Gerrit, Git).
My development roles have all included working on teams which also included remote employees and global teams. I also have years of experience as a technical lead managing projects, both within IBM and in the open source OpenStack community.
My main focus the last several years has been working on the open source OpenStack Nova (compute) project. I'm consistently a top contributor to Nova, am a core reviewer on several projects in OpenStack, and am the Nova project technical lead (PTL) for the Newton, Ocata, Pike and Queens releases.
Join the Project Team Leader of Nova and core contributors for a "project update" reflecting current developments in the Pike cycle and discussion of future development activity. We dig into major issues and user needs, and how those needs can be addressed in current and future development. We also discuss hot topics from the Project Teams Gathering, and major development decisions agreed by the team. Get an in-depth look at the top features and enhancements Nova plans to deliver in the Pike release.
