Alan Bush is a Technical Community Manager for the Rackspace Community. What's a "Technical Community Manager"? Well, technically, it means he manages the community, but really it means helping connect people with the information they need to make awesome things in the cloud. Before pioneering the TCM role, Alan helped to create the Cloud Launch Team.
During his time on the Launch Team, Alan helped more than 100 new cloud consumers get started with cloud hosting; developed a weekly live video show, Office Hours Hangouts; was one of the first 175 Rackers to become certified "Cloud Savvy," and was awarded the Fanatical Jacket, Rackspace's highest honor for outstanding customer support.
Before Rackspace, Alan helped create the Stevie Award winning onboarding program for cloud collaboration suite Central Desktop, working directly with companies and organizations like MLB.com, Sesame Workshop, and IEEE. When he's not helping customers learn how to build awesome things in the cloud, he can be found performing improv comedy with ComedySportz San Antonio, or volunteering with the Alamo Beard Club.
