Nominee’s bio

I'm Matteo Scandolo, a software developer from Italy. I built my experience working for a fast growing software agency in Milan building reliable and scalable microservice-based web applications. I joined ON.Lab in November 2015 and found interest in the CORD mission, which I adopted since then. You can find me on slack as @teone

How long have been working in the CORD community?

Joined ON.Lab in November 2015, and has been actively working on CORD since then.

What contributions have you made in the past to the CORD community?

I've been working on CORD orchestration layer (XOS). My main work is focused on platform usability, both from the operator and the developer point of view, and northbound APIs. One the most important task I've worked on in the last month has been improving code quality, refactoring and testing the code base.

What are you actively working on in CORD?

I am currently maintaining the north bound user interfaces, GUI, REST, WebSocket and TOSCA, and actively contributing to xProto toolchain. On a daily basis I work on various aspects of the control level of CORD.

Why do you feel you would be a good candidate for this position?

I'm deeply involved in the project and I deeply care about it's success and adoption. I believe that the key of sits in providing a stable API in the core and a mechanism as simple as possible to developer to implement, test and deploy their services.

Are there any changes you would like to bring to the community if elected into this position?

I would do all my best to keep the access to informations as open as possible, as well as involve the community in the decisioning process anytime that's possible.

I would put more focus of component separation in CORD, in order to speed up and simplify the development process and facilitate the design, develop, deploy and test cycle. I also believe that have a better separation between components will help us in managing different environments, keeping in mind that our end goal is to be able to quickly deploy and operate a physical deployment connected to access devices.
