Last Friday (23 Nov 2012) was my last day at VMware. I’ve had a great time there and really enjoyed working with the team. So why leave? The two main ones are:
- to focus on Grails in Action 2nd edition; and
- to do some training and consulting to help teams navigate the big changes happening in the development space.
This doesn’t mean I will be disappearing from the Grails scene – far from it. I’m hoping that I will have a bit more time to work on some of my plugins and maybe some other projects (such as gvm, which I’m contributing to atm). I’ll see how it pans out.
Any switch to consulting won’t happen until later in the new year though as I focus on the book. I’m keen to get it to our patient readers as soon as possible! And preferably before Grails 3 comes out 🙂
I’d like to end by thanking VMware for the support they have given the Groovy & Grails projects and for giving me the opportunity to learn some news skills and to continue contributing to the OS community.
