Joshua Harlow

Vice Executive Hacker, Yahoo!
Joshua Harlow is one of the technical leads on the OpenStack team who has helped OpenStack gain initial and continued traction inside Yahoo!. He was a member of the initial CTO subteam investigating IAAS solutions where OpenStack was chosen and has been pushing OpenStack from the start of its usage at Yahoo!. Joshua has been involved in OpenStack since 2011 and has contributed patches to most of the core projects (with the hope of contributing many more patches soon).
Joshua comes from NY where he obtained a undergraduate degree in Computer Science from Clarkson University and where he obtained a masters degree in Computer Science from Rochester Institute of Technology. He hopes to make OpenStack more scalable (tens of thousands of servers), reliable, predictable and recoverable and strongly believes that OpenStack has the best chance of beating Amazon at its own game.
