New challenges

February 10th, 2010

It’s been official for a few days now, so I thought I could drop a public note about me joining SpringSource Germany (division of VMware) as Senior Consultant beginning March 1st this year. Time to look back on three exciting years at Synyx and an outlook of what’s about to come.

I joined Synyx almost exactly 3 years ago. Since then I had an exciting time with awesome folks, a wide variety of customers, projects and conferences. As I dealt with enterprise Java software a ton, of course Spring has been a crucial part of my daily job, no matter if it was the core framework, the software eco system and people around it or the open source project Hades that I lead, which is based on Spring and carries Spring principles and values to the domain of easing data access with JPA.

Besides that, the crucial part to me is that Spring and SpringSource as a company have always provided pragmatic solutions to real world problems that are of quality far beyond average. As I already became more and more involved with the Spring codebase, too, I am thrilled to join the team to even more close to the heart of the – to me – core principle of software engineering: pragmatic, high quality solutions to real world problems.

To wrap things up, I’d like to say thank you to all the fellow developers, customers and people in general I met during my time at Synyx. If you need custom first class Java based business software, like to work with people that don’t hesitate to think out of the box – Synyx is the shop you’re looking for.

It’s been a pleasure! And it will be…
