Hey folks, I'd like to announce my intention to continue being PTL of the Data Processing program (Sahara).
I’m working on Sahara (ex. Savanna) project from scratch, from the initial proof of concept implementation and till now. I have been the acting/elected PTL since Sahara was an idea. Additionally, I’m contributing to other OpenStack projects, especially Infrastructure for the last two releases where I’m core/root teams member now. My high-level focus as PTL is to coordinate work of subteams, code review, release management and general architecture/design tracking. During the Juno cycle I was especially focused on stability, improving testing and supporting for the different data processing tools in addition to the Apache Hadoop. The very huge lists of bugs and improvements has been done during the cycle and I’m glad that we’re ending the Juno with completed list of planned features and new plugins available to end users including Cloudera and Spark. The great work was done on keeping backward compatibility together with security and usability improvements. For the Kilo I’d like to keep my own focus on the same stuff - coordination, review, release management and general approach tracking. As about the overall project focus I’d like to continue working on stability and tests coverage, distributed architecture, improved UX for non-expert EDP users, ability to use Sahara out of the box and etc. Additionally, I’m thinking about adopting an idea of czars system for Sahara in Kilo release and I’d like to discuss it on the summit. So, my vision of Kilo is to continue moving forward in implementing scalable and flexible Data Processing aaS for OpenStack ecosystem by investing in quality and new features. A few words about myself: I’m Principle Software Engineer in Mirantis. I was working a lot with Big Data projects and technologies (Hadoop, HDFS, Cassandra, Twitter Storm, etc.) and enterprise-grade solutions before starting working on Sahara in OpenStack ecosystem.
