James Slagle is a Principal Software Engineer at Red Hat. He's been working on OpenStack since the Havana release in 2013. His focus has been on OpenStack deployment and particularly the TripleO project, where he is a former PTL. Recently, his efforts have been around migrating TripleO to a more Ansible driven architecture and better integration with existing data center tools. At Red Hat, he was heavily involved with the initial productization of OpenStack Platform Director which is a downstream of TripleO.
