My Next Adventure
After almost 10 years at EmbeddedSupportTools/WindRiver/Intel, I'm heading off to pursue a new opportunity. I will be joining National Public Radio as Director of Technology for Public Interactive. This Boston-based division of NPR is responsible for the web technology platform used by many of the NPR affiliate stations. NPR is a great organization with a great mission, and I'm excited to be joining their team.
For my colleagues in Eclipse who know me as the embedded and mobile guy, the leader of DSDP, the guy who's always on the EclipseCon Program Committee, or one of your friendly Committer Reps, this is clearly "something completely different" as the Monty Python crew would say. In my new role, we will predominantly be users of Eclipse rather than contributors, and as such I will unfortunately be stepping down from my leadership roles in the Eclipse community.
I want to thank Wind River for supporting my work at Eclipse and for investing in the CDT, DSDP, and Platform projects. I also want to thank the many leaders in the Eclipse community and at the Foundation, from whom I've learned a great deal about meritocracy, IP policy, coopetition, copyright, governance, collaboration, and free beer.
