Building a strong community requires a team. As the often quoted proverb states "If you want to go quickly, go alone. If you want to go far, go together." Joining me on this journey to make the Green Circle Community a place to collaborate and learn together, are two very special people who are part of the newly minted GC Nerd Board of Directors.
Introducing Mor Cohen and Enlin Xu
Mor and Enlin are true embodiments of community. Beyond being rock stars in their own day-to-day work, they both contribute to open community efforts which help to empower technologists everywhere. Mor Cohen may be familiar to you if you've watched our Turbonomic (then VMTurbo) presentation at Tech Field Day in January 2015.
Mor also works closely with the public cloud community to make sure that we keep our eyes on the future of where the industry is going. It is also important that we keep in mind the bridging of the gap as I noted in my previous posts (Part 1 - Part 2). For this reason, Mor also spends significant time looking for opportunities to bridge the gap for people, process, and technology as we map out our path to the next generation of IT.
Mor will be taking on the honorary title of Chief Cloud Nerd here in the Green Circle Community.
Enlin Xu is our container and next-generation platform guru who also keeps a keen eye on where the industry is going in areas such as containers (Docker, LXC, Rkt) and the all important area of container scheduling (Kubernetes, Mesos, Docker Swarm). Enlin presented at the Container Days in Boston this year with Endre Sara.
Enlin will be taking on the honorary title of Chief Container Nerd here in Green Circle Community.
Welcome Team, and Thank you to the GC Community!
Together, and backed by a growing team of engineers, we proudly lead up community-empowering work that helps to learn from the industry as if crosses the next chasm, while doing the tactical work to technically map out the path to get to what's next.
Please take a moment and drop in a comment here to congratulate our honorary GC Board of Nerd Directors. Mor and Enlin are both personally and professionally close to me and this is why together we share a goal of making the GC Community part of our everyday collaboration, as well as a destination for all of you to join us in learning and shaping the future of IT.
