Re: CF Application Runtime PMC: Networking Project Lead Call for Nominations

Guillaume Berche

+1. Many thanks Shannon for your outstanding product leadership in key elements of the platform: first CF service API, then routing and finally networking.  Thanks also for your patience dealing with my [sometimes too?] enthusiastic product suggestions. I'll also long remember how you contributed to focus towards this unique CF user experience, selecting key use-cases from customer evidence, as well as avoiding "premature optimizations".

Looking back at the past years through design docs proposals , I realize how much I learned from you and the awesome individuals and teams that contributed to the broad CF community. It's amazing to see the ground covered by this community. I wish you the best for your next projects.
