I was hoping to post this a little closer to the date but the cat has been let out of the bag. I’ve decided to leave IBM for a position at RIM. It wasn’t an easy decision to make but in the end I thought it was best for me. I feel like I’ve gotten comfortable at IBM (and with Eclipse) and it’s time that I shook my life up a bit and tried something new. I’m going to miss my co-workers at IBM – I’ve been blessed to work with such an amazing group of people for so long. They’re truly some of the smartest people I’ve ever known and I wish them all the best. Similarly, my time spent with the Eclipse community has allowed me to meet and befriend wonderful people the world over. I’ve no doubt that the community will continue to thrive due to the efforts of these people.
My time at IBM working on Eclipse has been a wonderful opportunity for me and I’ve grown in many ways. I’m truly greatful for the chance I’ve had.
My last day at IBM is January 2nd. If anyone would like to stay in contact my email address is kim to the pookzilla dot com. The old Eclipse blog will remain and may even see some new content – there’s no escaping Eclipse in this industry and I’m sure I’ll have a whole lot more to say about it from the client side.
