Jeff Potts, Chief Community Officer, has been a recognized and award-winning leader in the Alfresco community for many years. He has over 18 years of content management and collaboration experience, most of that having come from senior leadership positions in consulting organizations.

Jeff has made many contributions to the Alfresco community since he started working with Alfresco in 2005. Examples range from code, to tutorials and informative blog posts, to code camps, meetups, and conference sessions. In 2008, Jeff wrote the Alfresco Developer Guide, the first developer-focused book on Alfresco.

In November of 2009, Jeff started working with the Content Management Interoperability Services (CMIS) standard. He wrote a “Getting Started with CMIS” tutorial based on the draft specification. Then, in December, Jeff released the first version of cmislib, a Python client API for CMIS. In February of 2010, the Apache Chemistry project invited cmislib to become the first non-Java library to become part of the project. The following month, Jeff co-authored a two part introduction to cmislib for IBM developerWorks. Jeff is now co-authoring a book on CMIS for Manning with other members of the Apache Chemistry project and the OASIS CMIS TC.

Jeff regularly speaks about open source content management, Alfresco, and CMIS at conferences such as JBoss World, OSCON, JavaONE, and Devoxx
