Richard Downer

Cloudsoft Corporation
Principal Engineer
Edinburgh, United Kingdom
For the last few years I have been specialising in Cloud Computing. I have worked extensively with the OpenStack and CloudStack APIs, as well as Amazon EC2. I have worked on the jclouds Java cloud abstraction project (http://jclouds.org), and on Brooklyn for launching and managing big cloud applications (http://brooklyn.io).

Throughout my career I have worked in many different markets, giving me a wide sampling of the technology market. I have worked on systems ranging from embedded systems, through desktop and server applications, through to large-scale cloud-enabling technologies. I have experienced market segments as diverse as telecommunications, geographical information systems, and web development. However cloud computing is the most exciting area that I've had the privilege to work in and I hope to remain in this industry for many years to come.

You can see some of my recent work online, in my corporate GitHub profile at https://github.com/richardcloudsoft, or my personal GitHub profile at https://github.com/rdowner. I use Twitter semi-frequently (http://twitter.com/FrontierTown) and occasionally post to my personal blog (http://www.frontiertown.co.uk).
