Hi folks,

I'd like to announce my candidacy for the TC.

I have been actively involved in OpenStack for about last two years,
and before that I was in observer mode since Diablo timeframe. I’m PTL
of OpenStack Data Processing program (Sahara project) from its very
beginning. Additionally, I’m the core reviewer in the OpenStack
Infrastructure team. I have contributions to different OpenStack
projects including Oslo, Swift, Nova client, Hacking, Pbr, Jeepyb,
Zuul and etc., you can find more info here [1].

My main focus in OpenStack is to enrich the portfolio of services it
provides with platform-level functionality, making it easier to use
for application developers and encouraging faster and larger adoption
of OpenStack platform. In addition to OpenStack I have contributed to
other open source projects including Twitter Storm [2] and Kotlin [3].

I see OpenStack not just an IaaS, but a great community, huge
ecosystem of extremely fast growing projects integrated with each
other to provide one consistent cloud platform. And here I see an
opportunity to enhance ecosystem further by creating integration
framework with other open source initiatives and their communities.
Integration with Apache Hadoop community through Sahara project is an
example. Sahara has been successfully graduated from the incubation by
OpenStack Technical Committee decision in the mid March to become a
part of integrated Juno release.

As a TC member I would like to bring additional expertise to the Big
Data in the OpenStack context and help to build a great and innovative
platform. In Icehouse I was participating in the formalisation of the
requirements for the incubation and graduation (as much, as it was
possible for non-TC member). That’s why I’d like to continue working
on it as I have a successful experience of growing project from
scratch to integration in present days. So, the goal of my TC
membership is to continue working on the OpenStack to help it grow
further and to make it as friendly and clear for newcomer projects and
contributors as possible.
