Thursday this week is my last day at Canonical. After a little over a year at Canonical, I’m moving on to the private cloud team at Rackspace — my first day with Rackspace will be the 17th of December. I’m very excited to be joining Rackspace — I’m excited by the project, the team, and the opportunity to make OpenStack even better. We’ve also talked about some interesting stuff we’d like to do in the Australian OpenStack community, but I’m going to hold off on talking about that until I’ve had a chance to settle in.
I am appreciative of my time at Canonical — when I joined I was unaware of the existence of OpenStack, and without Canonical I might never have found this awesome project that I love. I also had the chance to work with some really smart people who taught me a lot. This move is about spending more time on OpenStack than Canonical was able to allow.
