> A bit of an introduction; I'm living in the Netherlands in a place called Houten. I've
been working in IT for more than two decades. I started my career at a small development firm,
but switched to an ISP startup soon after. As one of the few technical people in that company
my job was to build the ISP. Everything from managing the modems to setting up the mail servers.
At that time i also got involved with OpenSource and decided to participate when possible.

Another dutch guy working in the ISP business! ;)

also started working with Nicira we wanted integration between CloudStack and Nicira Nvp.
I took the challenge of building support for Nicira Nvp into CloudStack. While working on
this i managed to track down several bugs and before i realized what was happening i was invited
to become a committer.

Seems like the same story. We wanted RBD support in CloudStack, so I 
decided to write it myself. Before I knew it I was a committer.

Maybe we should set up a dutch CloudStack dev/users day in Amsterdam 
some day?

Welcome to the club!

making sure it is supported with as much hypervisors as possible. I'm working closely with
the nice folks at Nicira to make this happen. Bug finding and testing is my second focus :-)
