The Apache CloudStack Community is an ever-growing and rapidly-developed community of people all around the globe committed to open-source technology. We are a welcoming society for new contributors and people keen on technology. This blog series will present you with recent CloudStack Committers and PMC members. Learn more about our tech society!

Meet Daniel Salvador – one of the newest CloudStack Committers. Based in Brazil, Daniel is working for a local cloud infrastructure provider. He is heavily engaged in helping CloudStack evolve by developing new features and committing code to the project. Learn more about him!

Introduce yourself with a few words?
Hello, my name is Daniel Augusto Veronezi Salvador, I am 23 years old. And, I am graduating in Computer Science. I live in Brazil and work at SC Clouds.

Tell us your story in one Tweet.
I always enjoyed playing video games. When I was about 12 years old, I started trying to understand how they work. That encouraged me to study logic and programming. Currently, I am certified as an IT technician and now I am about to finish my graduation.

When did you start your CloudStack journey?
My CloudStack journey started in December 2020 when I started to work at SC Clouds. Since then, I have been developing/improving features, reviewing PRs, helping the community through the mail lists, and, of course, learning about Cloud computing.

Who was your mentor during your CloudStack journey?
My main mentor was, and still is, Rafael Weingärtner. Gabriel Beims Bräscher also helped me a lot through the CloudStack processes (discussing and reviewing PRs).

Which was the latest feature on which you contributed or what was your last commitment to the CloudStack project?
The latest main feature, which users already can enjoy, was enabling dynamic scaling to VMs in KVM. Another improvement that is being developed/discussed is the refactoring of snapshots of VMs in KVM. Also, I had submitted some minor improvements and bug fixes, reviewed code, and helped users in the mail list.

Why do people need to choose open-source technology?
The technologies are always changing, but the concept is still the same. Therefore, I would say that we do not need to choose the technology itself, but embrace the concept of open-sourceness. By adopting and participating in an open-source ecosystem, we exchange experiences and help each other to build the community. Alone we may go faster, but together we go further.
