I recently joined Citrix and am now leading a team that includes a large number of CloudStack commitors and contributors. I have overall product development responsibility for Citrix's CloudPlatform product -- which is Powered by Apache CloudStack. As such, I'm interested in ensuring the best possible working relationship between Citrix and the Apache CloudStack community as a whole. In this session, I'll describe Citrix's goals in working with the community and will lead an interactive feedback session on how you (the attendees) think Citrix can best interact with the community so that we can ensure that everyone meets their goals.
