I will have the moral courage to make my actions consistent with my knowledge of right and wrong.
(See Job 27:5)
I am leaving Oracle behind on Friday March 4, 2016. Consequently this blog will become dormant. The Aquarium blog and the GlassFish/Java EE social media platforms like the @glassfish/@java_ee Twitter accounts will march forward as they have through numerous such transitions.
I have no doubt whatsoever that this was one of the top five hardest decisions of my life. I am also at this stage equally certain that this is the way I personally can best help continue to advance the Java and Java EE communities. I will be rejoining the purely community driven Java EE efforts I have been part of for the better part of a decade in complete good faith as soon as possible post-Oracle.
At Oracle folks like my colleagues David Delabassee and Bruno Borges will continue their roles in the Java EE ecosystem. I certainly wish the many good folks at Oracle nothing but the best of luck. They have a very hard job to do and they will continue to need our support, perhaps now more than ever.
As always you are absolutely welcome to connect with me personally or reach out to me on just about anything. I will be shortly reactivating my somewhat neglected and dormant purely personal blog. I will also be keeping my personal twitter handle active as always. Beyond these below are all my contact points.
