Subject Re: ApacheCon CFK - Call For Keynotes
Date Tue, 16 Feb 2016 14:31:08 GMT
I have an idea...

Sam Ramji, who is now CEO of Cloud Foundry, might be a good
keynote speaker. Sam was part of the initial, 1st prime
movers inside MS to make them more FOSS friendly; he pushed
for MS to become a platinum sponsor, and had a lot of
influence both internally and externally. He then left MS
and worked @ Apigee and helped w/ the donation of usergrid
and now is part of LF and CF.

He's had an interesting journey and, I think, some unique views
into how things have changed. He's a very good and engaging speaker
as well. And I know him very, very well.
