Changes…

I just wanted to let everyone know that this is my last week with IBM. I have decided to pursue life as an independent and to the delight of the Eclipse Platform UI team, my choice doesn’t involve apple farming or going to an ashram (inside joke).

I hear life as an independent is fun, you get to hold signs like this…

In reality, my personal mission has always been to make Eclipse/OSGi as successful as possible. I just have decided to spread the Eclipse/OSGi love as an independent.

It’s been a true pleasure working with everyone and seeing Eclipse grow over the years. For now, I plan to continue to get Eclipse 3.4 out the door. Also, I will still be attending the E4 Summit next week for those who want to grab a beer. I think e4 is very important to the success of Eclipse and I will remain involved there.

On a side note, for those in the Boston area this weekend, let me know if you want to discuss open-source and Eclipse over a frosty beverage πŸ™‚

    Consultants tend to travel a lot, however, I do not see how anyone could possibly travel more than you do… Good luck, Chris! Thanks or all the love you already put into PDE!
    OBTW: you should be receiving a parcel this week. Maybe you can take a picture saying “will code for T-Shirts”, then.

    Chris, Congrats! Glad to hear about the move.

    Drop me an e-mail and drinks are on me while you are here in Boston. I do have some neat ideas on Eclipse and open-source that I am sure you will find fun to talk about.

    Best of luck on the open road ahead Chris! It’s great to hear that you will stay within the world of software instead of leaving the Eclispe ecosystem to do weird big pharma stuff πŸ˜‰
