Namaste! I’m Rohit Yadav, VP Engineering at ShapeBlue.

I’m a long-time PMC member and committer of the opensource Apache CloudStack project, working on it since 2012. I’m also a member of the Apache Software Foundation.

I’ve served as the release manager for several CloudStack releases, and authored several CloudStack flagship features, frameworks and tools such as cmk, mbx, the CloudStack UI (originally started as project Primate) and many others. I wrote the opensource CloudStack developer onboarding course hackerbook and I regularly speak at CloudStack and related events, meetups and conferences. Nowadays, I’ve transitioned into a mentoring and leadership role both in the community and at work.

My GPG key is 0x0EE3D884, full fingerprint of my key is: 5ED1 E112 2DC5 E8A4 A451 12C2 4842 4821 0EE3 D884.

My interest and journey in the cloud computing space started at CERN in 2010, where I got hands-on experience in virtualisation and cloud computing as a volunteer summer student working with my mentor Dr. Ben Segal. Working on Apache CloudStack has enabled me to work in several areas of interest and domains such as virtualisation, networking, storage, distributed systems, orchestration, resource management and scheduling, and leadership.
