It is rather unfortunate, but this is likely my very last blog entry, as I have resigned from Sun/Oracle and tomorrow is my last day. Here is an e-mail I sent out about my resignation

I was trying to build up a list of people I've had the pleasure of working with for the past 6.5 years, and the list just got too long and I thought I would be missing some key people. Therefore I decided to send to all. After all, what's the worst that could happen now

My experience at Sun/Oracle has been a pretty incredible one. I've had the pleasure of working with a great number of people in all parts of the Sun/Oracle organization. From working in the tools organization to working in Sun Labs, I've had the chance to do some pretty amazing things. The amount of support I have had over the years from fellow co-workers and management at all levels has made a lot of my projects possible.

But change is the only constant in this world. I have been presented with an incredible opportunity to create my own startup and grow my own engineering organization, which I could not pass up. I am sure that I will be using a lot of what I have learned throughout the years here at Sun to good advantage.

Special thanks go to Roger Meike, James Gosling, Craig Gering, Octavian Tanase, Jeet Kaul, Bob Sproull, Bob Brewin, Roger Brinkley for putting up with a significant amount of crazy projects that I feel did good for us as well as the community itself.

I wish you all the very best with your current and future endeavours, and look forward to our paths crossing again in the future.
