Rick van de Loo (vdloo) joins our team

Please help us extend a warm welcome to our newest team member Rick van de Loo!

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

In the last couple of years Rick has contributed various high quality changes to the project and we are happy to have him on board.

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

Rick van de Loo is the lead developer on Hypernode, a highly automated and cloud agnostic hosting platform specialised for Magento built on top of Apache Libcloud. Since Rick started working on Hypernode he has seen it scale from double digits to thousands of servers, along the road orchestrating various high volume cross-provider migrations. His main focus is on platform stability and feature development, of which a large part has been integrating cloud APIs and working around their incompatibilities and unreliable nature.

And in his own words:

Since we started using Libcloud around four years ago the landscape has changed a lot. But even though container-based and serverless architectures have become more prominent, compute is still the cornerstone of cloud. Most of my contributions have been about standardising functionality across different compute providers and implementing new driver methods, mainly related to the AWS, DigitalOcean and OpenStack APIs. As an Apache Libcloud team member I will continue to contribute changes that help us scratch our own itch and encourage other members of the Hypernode team to do the same.

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

Anthony Shaw (anthonyshaw) joins our team

Please help us extend a warm welcome to our newest team member Anthony Shaw!

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

Anthony has joined the community fairly recently, but he has already made a lot of substantial contributions. Those contributions range from new Dimension Data drivers and various related improvements to a proposal for a new backup API for Backup as a Service products and projects.

While we are talking about the new backup API - we would like to encourage everyone who is either a service provider offering Backup as a Service product or a person interested in using this API to join us and participate in the discussion. The more feedback we get, the better and more widely applicable we can make this new API.

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

Anthony Shaw works for the global system integrator Dimension Data as Head of Innovation. Anthony has been working in the hosting/service provider industry for the last 10 years for MSPs within Europe, North America and Australia in various Product Management and Product Development roles. Anthony is an open-source advocate and has been promoting the Libcloud project internally to Dimension Data for the last 9 months as well as maintaining its driver.

And in his own words:

I think we will continue to see consolidation in IaaS providers over the next 12 months, so likelihood is the number of drivers will reduce, but the importance of being cloud agnostic to people is becoming more apparent as some are already being burnt by integrations into APIs that companies like Dell and Ninefold have pulled the plug on. Libcloud is a key project for developers not wanting to lock themselves too heavily to a vendor. I would also like to see expansion of additional services like backup, load balancing and containers so that users can still take advantages of these features through our driver.

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

New committer Hutson Betts joins our team

Hi all,

I just wanted to let everyone know that the Libcloud PMC has decided to invite a new committer - Hutson Betts (hbetts).

He has previously mostly contributed to the OpenNebula driver and the networking API.

We believe that granting him the committer status will allow him to more easily and directly contribute to the project.

Please help us welcome him!
