Please help us extend a warm welcome to our newest team member Clemens Wolff!

The Project Management Committee (PMC) for Apache Libcloud has invited Clemens Wolff to join us as a committer and we are pleased to announce that he has accepted.

Clemens has participated in the Libcloud community for a while now and during his participation he made a number of high quality contributions to the project.

For anyone who would like to know more about Clemens here is his short bio:

Clemens Wolff is a tech lead in Microsoft’s Commercial Software Engineering team, enabling customers from around the world to create scalable, resilient and efficient software solutions applying relevant technologies and platforms, including cloud computing, highly scalable data engines, machine learning and analytics, and distributed messaging systems.

And in his own words:

I was introduced to Libcloud while working with a research group at Imperial College London on porting OKpy, an open source computer science classroom management system, from GCP to Azure. OKpy uses Libcloud which made migrating the object storage needs of the application a breeze. Since this initial exposure, I’ve been using Libcloud on many projects to ensure cross-cloud compatibility and to simplify testing via the local provider implementations. Most of my contributions have been about maintaining and updating the Azure implementation of Libcloud’s storage driver and building test automation to ensure that Libcloud can seamlessly be used with Azure.

We are happy to have him in our team and we are looking forward to his future participation and contributions.
