Change is inevitable – except from a vending machine
It is with great reluctance that I announce my departure from Xen.org as your community manager. Working with the many community members from around the world over the past three years has been a highlight in my career and I have learned so much from you that I can’t possibly thank you enough. Xen.org has an amazing group of dedicated developers, testers, administrators, champions, and technologists that together have created one of the great open source solutions available currently being leveraged by hundreds of millions of people. Having the opportunity to contribute my small part toward this great community was a privilege for me.
My last day as your community manager is September 10th at which time I will send my final blog posting. Although I am leaving Xen.org, I still expect to stay in close contact with the community in my new position. I look forward to watching Xen.org continue to grow and revolutionize the virtualization industry although I will be on the outside looking in.
Once again, thank you for your great support and commitment to Xen.org.
Xen Directions South America in Sao Paulo is underway with plenty of great speakers from Cloud Providers, Google, Citrix, and Ian Pratt giving his standard opening thoughts on the future of Xen.org and associated technologies. Many people are taking pictures so I will be sure to post links to these once I get the information from the Xen.org members taking pictures. In the meantime, here are two shots I took with my not very good iPhone:
The second shot is myself with some Xen.org leaders in South America. Prize to the first person who can name everyone in the picture in the comment!
