I have been involved in OpenStack from July 2010 when it is publically announced. At that time, I was leading a newly created research project team at KT R&D department focusing on Cloud. Since then, my life has been all about OpenStack. I established OpenStack Korea Community early 2011, since then, I have been a "representative" of openstack in Korea. I have been doing many talks and presentation introduciing OpensStack.
Along the line, I have been experiencing very interesting stuffs: devops, chef, automation, test, ruby, python, cloud, and more importantly people around openstack community.

Small Story: Frankly speaking, the sole reason I was so interested in OpenStack from the first time was simple. It was not any insight, it was a word of "AUSTIN". yes, I graduated from the University of Texas at Austin, and I love the city of Austin. :)
