Moving on to become an Eclipse consumer…

After some six years or so of contributing to Eclipse both full-time at work and part-time during my undergrad at the University of Waterloo, I must announce today that I will be switching over to Rational Team Concert’s Source Control team effective Monday of next week (March 19th).

I am having great difficulty expressing myself in words but I can say without question that it has been a great privilege of mine to have been able to work with so many of you the past six years. It has been extremely fulfilling for me to work in open source given the closeness that is emitted in the interactions on Bugzilla, the mailing lists, IRC, and pick-your-favourite-social-media. Whenever I reported or fixed a bug, I really felt that I was making a difference.

I don’t know what I’m going to do with all my free time after I’ve moved on. I think I’ll still be around though. I will not be submitting fixes as often as I used to but you’ll still find me in Bugzilla. Even if I stopped CC’ing myself on bugs today there are still thousands of bugs that I am currently CC’d on. ;) So, I will not actually say “Good bye”.

I will still be going to EclipseCon North America…perhaps to my future team’s chagrin, but not to mine. So if anyone wants to chat, you can find me there. Don’t try to buy me any alcohol though since I don’t drink. ;)

    Hi Remy,
    for sure I will miss your “I fix your bug immediately” quick responses. The eclipse platform has always been a hobby to me, so I hope I’ll see you on bugzilla from time to time.
    Best wishes for your new job!

    Congratulations, Remy! So, is there anything that I can buy you instead of a drink? Something Bavarian perhaps? ;-)
