I am happy to announce that John Kellerman has joined the Eclipse Foundation as Community Manager for the Cloud DevTools Working Group. The Eclipse Cloud DevTools Working Group provides a vendor-neutral ecosystem of open-source projects focused on defining, implementing and promoting best-in-class web and cloud-based development tools.

As Community Manager, John will help drive the evolution and broad adoption of emerging open source solutions for cloud-based development tools including Eclipse Theia, Eclipse Che and the Open VSX Registry.

John is based in Chapel Hill, North Carolina. He joins the Eclipse Foundation after retirement from IBM, and more recently consulting with the Eclipse Foundation on the Open Research initiative. At IBM, John was most recently a development manager within the Watson organization.  Previously, he was IBM’s representative to the Eclipse Foundation Board, and worked within IBM to support teams that leveraged the Eclipse IDE. John was part of the team that started the original Eclipse open source project and Foundation.

Please join me in welcoming and congratulating John on taking on this new role in the Eclipse Cloud DevTools community!
