What? This is a title of a pretty good track? How does this connect to an IT Blog?
So it’s official now, why not blog about it? I’ll leave Endticket at the end of April, and join Hortonworks.
It has various reasons, mostly personal. Endticket is a good small startup. Period. Endticket is a fun place to work at. I just missed the scale. Since I work as a Devops Engineer, I always had the luck to work at systems wich have to perform at an amazing scale. I think this is the measurement of my interests, i mean as an engineer. Otherwise, a totally different story, but hey, this is an IT blog, so thank God I don’t have to talk about my food, music, and female preferences. Plus as you all know, Hortonworks maintains one of the biggest Hadoop distributions around. And as you all know, it’s 100% Open Source! Oh yes, working on a 100% open source system is tempting. Especially if you are a community conscious person, like me, and want to give back to the world as much as you can, making it a better place this way. “Because human knowledge belongs to the world , like the works of Shakespeare or Asprin”. Yes, this is a quote, a cheesy one, but reflects my opinions on software engineering perfectly.
Also what about your Open Source stuff?
I won’t abandon anything. Especially not Openduty. I’ve got plans, huge plans. Check this domain. https://www.openduty.com . Yes I plan to build a hosted SAS service for it. Would you be interested in such a thing, dear Reader?
