Last Day at Novell

Today is my last day at Novell which I arrived at by way of Helixcode and then Ximian in 2003.   Both these companies enabled me to work in and around open source first as a hacker and then later as a manager and director.  Perhaps future posts will have some more reflections on this time.  It has been a great and I learned so much over the years, but it is now time to move on.

    We’ll really miss you, it’s sad to see you leave. But I’m also glad to see you going to a really great place 🙂 You’ll rock there!

    Wow! That’s a surprise. All the best for the future, JP. Whoever takes over from you will have a hard act to follow (at least from my point of view from the outside looking in).

    The hidden hand behind so much software that I use. Hope this means more blogging in future 🙂

    Good luck in the new gig – a lot of smart people moving to Mozilla recently, look forward to seeing what you guys are cooking up.
