Proposal: Venki Korukanti as Uber representative for TSC
Following up on our conversation at the TSC meeting today, I'd like to propose Venki Korukanti as Uber's representative on the Technical Steering Committee with probationary committership for a period of six months. For additional background, Uber got an open slot on the TSC with probationary committership when we joined the foundation, and I'm proposing Venki for this.
Venki is currently collaborating with Zhenxiao Luo on a major rewrite of the Presto Parquet reader, and has made major Uber internal Presto for key projects such as Neutrino. Venki has a strong track record of open source contributions and engagement in systems similar to Presto. He serves on the Apache Drill PMC and has been one of the top contributors on Drill. I think he will add a great outside perspective to the Presto TSC, which will be very valuable to the rest of the community.
Please let me know if you have any other questions. Also, please provide your votes for this.
