Tom Fifield
After learning about scalability in computing from particle physics experiments like ATLAS at the Large Hadron Collider, Tom led the creation of the NeCTAR Research Cloud - currently expanding to 30,000 cores at over 8 sites distributed over every major city in Australia. Previously working as a programmer, system administrator, architect and team lead, Tom is currently harnessing his passion for large scale distributed systems by focusing on their most important part: people. As Community Manager at the OpenStack Foundation, it's his job to make the users and developers of OpenStack happy.
