About this Episode

One of the themes of the Cloud Foundry Summit series has always been to help reinforce the strong sense of community among those who take part in the open source movement. In this way, the recently held Cloud Foundry Summit EU in September lived up to its mission. Among those on hand at the conference whose jobs are to initiate and educate organizations, about open source and the Cloud Foundry, as well as to include more individuals in the movement, were Ivana Scott, business operations manager, EngineerBetter and Sara Lenz, sales and account manager, anynines. They were the guests on The New Stack Makers podcast recorded at Cloud Foundry Summit EU, hosted by Alex Williams, founder and editor in chief of The New Stack. Both Lenz and Scott are particularly well-positioned to offer a fresh perspective on how to grow the community through education.

Scott first became involved in the open source community in in 2007 when she joined training provider in London. There, she was part of the events team, and was involved in organizing events, training courses, conference and meetups, while devoting a “huge amount” of effort to support open source communities. She then became directly involved in the Cloud Foundry community after joining EngineerBetter in 2018.
