Dear Technical Oversight Committee,
On June 3, 2021, the term for two of the three current Security TAG co-chairs, Sarah Allen (@ultrasaurus) and Jeyappragash JJ (@pragashj) comes to an end. 

The TOC election process requires nomination from TOC and then ⅔ vote.  We have also followed the Security TAG governance process for proposing candidates, since we have clear successors who are already working within the group. The candidates below have unanimous support from our TOC liaisons, as well as the three current co-chairs.

We believe that Aradhna Chetal and Brandon Lum, along with current chair Emily Fox, will enable “full coverage of the leadership capabilities across the key qualities of industry experience, hands-on cloud-native and security experience, as well as administrative experience needed to run a Security TAG.”  While both currently serve as Tech Leads for the group (as did Emily before she became chair), we do not consider that a prerequisite for the chair position.

Hi all,

The Storage TAG would like to nominate two candidates for roles in the TAG: Xing Yang and Nick Connolly.   Both have been members of the TAG for a while and have been active contributors - they will continue to help strengthen the community and bring a wealth of experience and expertise to the group.

This follows on from Erin's move from the SIG/TAG to the TOC - thank you Erin for everything you have done with us since the SIG was formed.

Following the SIG operating model, Tech leads are assigned following a 2/3 majority vote of the TOC and a 2/3 majority vote of TAG Chairs.

We are incredibly excited to continue to work with Xing and Nick in these new roles and would like to thank them for their continued contributions to the community!

TAG App Co-Chairs and Tech Leads - TOC Vote

Reitbauer, Alois
 

Dear TOC members,

 

I would like to communicate some planned changes to the team of TAG App Delivery. Two of the current chairs want to hand over their roles as co-chairs:

 

  • Bryan Liles wants to hand over his chair role due to other commitments 
  • Lei Zhang was voted into the TOC and wants to focus on this role. 

 

We had a great interest from candidates which is a great situation to be in. You can find the full list of nominees here.  We ran a vote amongst the current co-chairs and our TOC liaison members.

 

We reached out to the community for candidates for new co-chairs as well as establishing tech leads to support the chairs as we see increased technical work done in the different working groups.  The vote results in the below proposal for two new co-chairs and two new tech leads.

 

Our proposal is to appoint two new co-chairs:

 

Jennifer Strejevitch, VMWare

 

Jennifer is a Senior Engineer at VMware, previously Senior SRE at Conde Nast. She has been in the industry for over 13 years with experience in Software Development, Cloud Infrastructure, leadership and SRE. Currently, she is working in R&D where she designs solutions for highly scalable Kubernetes platforms.

 

Jennifer has experience in fostering a DevOps culture in her previous organisation, where she was a mentor in practices such as Infrastructure as Code, application monitoring and CI/CD. You can find some of her experience on last year’s KubeCon EU in this End User Panel: https://www.oicheryl.com/2020/08/20/kubecon-cloudnativecon-europe-2020-virtual-panel-end-user-community-adoption-of-cloud-native-principles-lessons-learned/ She’s also initiated an SRE practice within her current organisation, along with implementing SRE in her new team. Some of this experience is summarized in this blog post https://medium.com/condenastengineering/1-year-of-sre-760e94e665cf

 

She was previously part of the CNCF End User group and is now co-chairing the SIG-App-Delivery Operator Working Group, driving the progress of the Operator White-paper by running meetings, writing content, editing and enabling contributors from the wide community. 

 

In her community participation, she has also given Kubernetes and programming workshops for underrepresented groups, written blog posts, given talks and contributed to open source. Her experience in product development, operations, leadership and advocacy in the cloud native world, in both end users and vendors, gives her a wide scope that matches the SIG

 

Hongchao Deng, Alibaba

Hongchao is a Staff Engineer at Alibaba with a focus on open source. He has been a technical contributor to the Kubernetes and its ecosystem projects as well as serving the community as an organizer of Cloud Native Community China. More about Hongchao’s technical background and community experience:

  • TL & Staff Engineer at Alibaba. Previously TL at CoreOS.
  • He focuses on community growth. He is one of the organizers of Cloud Native Community China (cloudnative.to). He has been mentoring the communities on technical discussion and organizational events.
  • He has strong technical experience in the Cloud Native Application area. He created the first Operator (etcd-operator) and advocated operator pattern to its maturity. He led a few critical features in K8S-SIG-Scheduling, K8S-SIG-Scalability. Now He is the committer of OAM (oam.dev) and KubeVela (kubevela.io).

 

We are also proposing two tech leads:

 

Alex Jones, now CIVO before JPMC

 

Alex until recently worked as a VP of SRE at JPMC and is now working as a principal engineer role at CIVO cloud. HIs roles have often been to enable thousands of engineers to deploy workloads with just-enough-infrastructure, architecting complex poly-tenancy multi-cloud solutions or designing the specification for delivery that is governable. Alex is also a co-initiator of the application enablement working group, helped with the podtato reference application for app delivery

.

Thomas Schuetz, Dynatrace

 

Thomas is working as a Senior Cloud Engineer at Dynatrace. During the last two decades, he worked in various systems administration and operations positions. After working as an operations lead, he (re-)discovered his enthusiasm for cloud-native and infrastructure-automation related topics and switched back to more hands-on technical roles.

 

Last year, he joined the SIG App Delivery and drove the progress of the Operator Working Group. This year, he became a co-chair of this WG and was a key driver in creating an operator white paper. Currently, he is - together with Alex and Jennifer - driving efforts to provide patterns and examples for converging infrastructure and application deployment in a new working group.

 

We are looking for approval by the TOC and are looking forward to working with these great individuals as they are contributing their time and knowledge to further mature the application delivery ecosystem.

 

Please reply to this email to vote.  As always, the CNCF encourages non-binding votes from the community, along with the required votes of TOC members.

 

We are very excited for community members stepping up and supporting the initiatives of TAG app delivery. Especially, we are excited to have increased end user focus on the team.

It has been fantastic working with Brandon on assessments and Aradhana on whitepapers over their involvement in Security TAG. They have both been phenomenal in cross pollination between different security initiatives/groups and Security TAG.

Brandon is a great meeting facilitator as well as a tech lead, it has been a pleasure working with him on the CNSMap and also on the translation of the CNSWP to pt-BR, in which he has been very supportive. He is always friendly and approachable and I really think he is a great candidate for this co-chair position.

Aradhna is a frequent member of our weekly meetings always bringing different ideas and projects for discussion. Her involvement in CSA and NIST is also very beneficial for this group. I'm looking forward to working more with her on the Serverless Security Whitepaper and really think she is a great candidate for this co-chair position.
Best Regards,

Magno Logan

Brandon has had a significant impact over the length of his involvement within the TAG.  Between his dedication to the governance and smooth operation of TAG and his depth of core security knowledge his contributions have helped make the TAG what it is today.

Aradhna is newer to the TAG and brings with her a broad array of expertise from the larger Cybersecurity community.  Her ideas and engagement with TAG and across CNCF working groups brings the entire community closer.

It has been fantastic working with Brandon on assessments and Aradhana on whitepapers over their involvement in Security TAG. They have both been phenomenal in cross pollination between different security initiatives/groups and Security TAG. It was an honor to serve them as a co-chair and I am incredibly excited to see them now perform the role to help others in the group create the outcomes and success.

Dear Technical Oversight Committee,

On June 3, 2021, the term for two of the three current Security TAG co-chairs, Sarah Allen (@ultrasaurus) and Jeyappragash JJ (@pragashj) comes to an end. 


The TOC election process requires nomination from TOC and then ⅔ vote.  We have also followed the Security TAG governance process for proposing candidates, since we have clear successors who are already working within the group. The candidates below have unanimous support from our TOC liaisons, as well as the three current co-chairs.


We believe that Aradhna Chetal and Brandon Lum, along with current chair Emily Fox, will enable “full coverage of the leadership capabilities across the key qualities of industry experience, hands-on cloud-native and security experience, as well as administrative experience needed to run a Security TAG.”  While both currently serve as Tech Leads for the group (as did Emily before she became chair), we do not consider that a prerequisite for the chair position.
