Greener pastures

I've recently made a major decision -- I'll be leaving Oracle. My last day as an Oracle employee will be on May 21, 2010. Leaving such a great group of people at Sun will be difficult indeed.

However, I hope to be able to continue as a significant contributor to the OpenSolaris community, as I'll be joining the team at Nexenta. At Nexenta, my responsibility will be to lead a group of engineers working on the OpenSolaris kernel. As such, I'm excited that I'll be able to continue to work on finest operating system kernel on the planet, and I look forward to further collaboration with some of the best software engineers on the planet.

My first day at Nexenta will be on May 24, 2010.



I'm a longterm lurker on your blog which I find very informative on what was going on in Solaris/OpenSolaris development. It's a pity that you will be finishing up with Sun/Oracle though not that surprising given current trends. Anyways it's good to know that someone of your talent will still be working on the OpenSolaris ecosystem from Nexenta. All the best

Edward: Probably. I am not too familiar with their fora at present, but I expect I will become so soon. :-) I hope to also remain active in the greater OpenSolaris community.
