Sam Ramji is Chief Strategy Officer at DataStax. Sam led Kubernetes and DevOps product management for Google Cloud, founded the Cloud Foundry foundation, has helped build two multi-billion dollar markets (API Management at Apigee and Enterprise Service Bus at BEA Systems) and redefined Microsoft’s open source and Linux strategy from “extinguish” to “embrace”. He is nerdy about open source, platform economics, middleware, and cloud computing with an emphasis on developer experience and enterprise software. 


Sam continues to build and create friendships through group discussions, fire-side chats, and 1:1 talks. Listen-in on the conversations on all the goodness of open source. There’s a wealth of knowledge Sam is eager to share.
