John Ferlito, CTO of Vquence, Director of Robot Parade, and President of Linux Australia, joined the Ada Initiatives advisory board in April. John brings to the board extensive experience as both an entrepreneur and an open source community developer and leader. Ive cared about the problem of there being so few women in open source for a while and this is a chance to make a difference,” he says. Johns technical focus is on highly available and scalable computer systems, including cloud computing.
John has been been providing advice to the Ada Initiative since our first public announcements at linux.conf.au in January 2011. Were glad to welcome him to the advisory board for the longer term.
