Call for nominations - Cooperative Delivery Working Group Co-Chairs


thomas.schuetz@...
 

Hello!

In the last few months, we established a new working group for bringing infrastructure and application and infrastructure delivery closer together. One of the main goals of this Working Group is providing patterns and real-world examples to End-Users on how to deal with unified infrastructure and application deployment. To drive initiatives around this working group, we are looking for 2-3 co-chairs.

Co-chairs should have an extensive interest in the topic area of this Working Group and time enough to facilitate the meetings and initiatives. The time commitment will vary from week to week, normally it will average out to be about a half day's work per week. It is not expected from the chairs to do all of the work of the WG, this is encouraged of all members of the Working Group.

With this email, we open the call for nominations for the co-chair positions of the Cooperative Delivery Working Group (https://github.com/cncf/tag-app-delivery/tree/master/cooperative-delivery-wg). Details:
  • We are aiming to elect 2-3 co-chairs
  • Nominations are now open and will close on Friday, October 29th at 11:59 PDT
  • Nominations should be made by sending an email to this mailing list and should include a brief bio and personal statement describing the candidates' qualifications to serve in this capacity
  • Self-nominations are welcome
  • Voting will begin at the close of the nomination period and will continue until Friday, November 5th at 11:59 PM PDT. Details of how the vote will be conducted will be sent to this mailing list before Friday, October 29th
We will cross-post this note to the #cooperative-delivery-wg slack channel as well.

Thank you for your participation!

I would like to take the opportunity to nominate myself for this position.

A short summary of me, for those I haven't had the pleasure of meeting:

My day to day work is to help my company and our clients with the typical cloud and cloud native architecture, and enabling DevOps practices and standards. Besides my day-to-day I organize user groups and events, do speaking engagements, (at least try to) write technical articles. The scope of this working group is more or less what I do for a living and what I'm passionate about and I am very much looking forward to see what we can accomplish together. More related to this working group, I also have experience with the GitOps working group where I have been very active, and I feel ready to have a bit more responsibility in such a scenario.

Any questions, feel free to reach out.

Hi, I would like to nominate myself.

I am a Staff SRE at Stack Overflow and I'm currently on the Developer Tooling team working on application build and delivery. Before becoming a founding member of the Dev Tooling team I was the SRE team lead responsible for all of our Cloud infrastructure. I've worked on both sides of the delivery challenge and I'm quite interested in finding solutions and best practices in this space. 

I previously was an active member of the Windows SIG prior to GA and I have organized and operated user groups and less-than-50-person meetups for several years.

Ready to chop wood and carry water,

Hi team,
 
I'd like to nominate myself as a co-chair. I believe I can help the coordinated delivery working group develop technical ideas and implementations in support of our agenda as well as coordinate work and partnerships with other stakeholders in and out of the CNCF. Following is my background and some previous experiences which would aid us; footnotes are to my own articles and code.
 
For most of my 16-year career I've helped cloud-native app developers understand and use software-defined infrastructure, and helped infrastructure developers and administrators understand the needs of app developers. My first domain was Windows, .NET and SharePoint farms and apps [1]; and today I support Linux, public clouds like Azure and AWS, Kubernetes clusters and operators, and microservices written in many languages.
 
I'm personally passionate about making infrastructure easy to use for app developers and DevOps practitioners; to that end I've developed service operators and build/delivery services [2] and advocated for standard cloud infrastructure APIs [3]. I've built lots of cloud-native apps in Java/Spring, Node.js, Go and C# (e.g. [4,5]) to help developers grasp the intended state of a cloud-native app as well as to identify gaps in and propose additions to current solutions.
 
I've also participated in various ways in the Node.js, Go, Kubernetes and other open communities over the years. In particular I helped establish Node.js' Technical Steering Committee [6] and Diagnostics working group following the establishment of the Node.js Foundation in 2016; and led a team at Microsoft that worked with the Go community to support Go in Azure's SDKs and other services [7] in 2018. Recently I've been participating in TAG App Delivery meetings and contributing to the podtato-head set of prototypes [8]. I intend to evolve and use those and other collateral we develop in my day-to-day job of helping my employer's customers use cloud services more effectively.
 
Thanks for your consideration, and looking forward to what we'll accomplish!
 
Best,
Josh

Hi,

I'd like to nominate myself as a co-chair.

For the last decade, I've worked with software-driven organizations and helped them improve their developer experience and organizational productivity through DevOps practices and cloud-native technologies. My role has varied from engineering to architecture to team leadership. This has helped me develop deep technical know-how and, at the same time, understand the role that technology, people and processes play in organisational success.

Having led the application and infrastructure CI/CD implementation in numerous organisations, I’ve come to recognise that coordinating the delivery is not just a matter of technology. It may be challenging to find the balance between organisational roles and responsibilities as well as technical flexibility and abstraction.

My personal research ambitions align closely with the objectives of the cooperative delivery working group. I believe that my real-life experience implementing application and infrastructure delivery solutions and experience with the necessary organisational change would benefit the working group.

I would be honoured to work with the community and contribute to a shared goal.

Kind regards,

Rein Remmel
