Several weeks ago I attended the Project Teams Gathering (PTG) in Denver, and conducted a number of interviews with project teams and a few of the PTLs (Project Technical Leads).
These interviews are now all up on the RDO YouTube channel. Please subscribe, as I'll be doing more interviews like this at OpenStack Summit in Sydney, as well as at future events.
I want to draw particular attention to my interview with the Swift crew about how they collaborate across company lines and across timezones. Very inspiring.
