Saying bye to NetBeans...

After 8 years with NetBeans IDE it's time for a change. I accepted offer to join a new group that will work closely with the Q-layer company that SUN has bought recently. It's a new challenge, a new opportunity to learn new things and also chance to be part of team that builds up a new product. It was wonderful time with the guys/gals that are beyond the NetBeans IDE. I'll stay in touch as I really like the NetBeans - ok, ok, not the whole NetBeans IDE. My favorite parts are Mobility and Platform.

I won't have time to write blogs about the new in NetBeans platform as I did together with the NB Platform QE team at blogs.sun.com/coreqa. As I said I plan to stay in the huge crowd of NetBeans fans so I may blog about some news time to time. However it will be probably harder and harder because I've just moved to another office where I won't have daily chats with the guys working on NetBeans IDE. On the other hand I promised to Geertjan to work on the NBPodcast with him. Lot of changes happened here in last month(s).

-So long, and thanks for all the beans-

Before you'll ask what I'll do now... Right now I have head in Clouds. I'm looking at new SUN's cloud solution (whatever it means).

All the best for your new endeavor Lukas! It was a pleasure reading your blogs all these years :)

Sad news for the NetBeans community. But I'm happy that in your case it's a deliberate move and not a layoff. In any case, if you're going to work with the cloud, we'll get in touch again ;-)

Wow, we need to have a beer together soon. Good luck and thanks for all the NetBeans work.

NetBeans Community (and NetCAT) will surely miss you! Thanks for helping me out in the past, and good luck for the future.

What a coincidence -- the platform is also my favorite part of NetBeans, and your work over the past eight years made it better.

I'm sad to see you move on, but like Fabrizio I'm glad to know it was your decision to do so. I wish you good luck in the future and look forward to those podcasts.

Thank you for nice words. I'll definitely let you know how it looks with the cloud soon.
