Moving Up and Remaining Open

Sep - 11 - 2009
Nicole C. Engard

Many of you have already seen this announcement via other media, but I wanted to share here anyway ;) Yesterday I sent the following email to the Koha Mailing List:

Hello everyone,

I wanted to write to you all before news started spreading and let you know that I have taken a position with ByWater Solutions and BibLibre that will start on October 1st. These two amazing companies have come together to offer me a role that will allow me to not only help libraries understand open source but to stay active in the community.

This means that I will remain your document manager – as I was informed at KohaCon – until I drop :) I have also been learning more and more about the software and participating more in submitting patches – something I hope to start doing more often.

Lastly, I read the comments in the most recent IRC meeting and wanted to thank all of you who said such kind things about me :) I enjoy being documentation manager and helping other learn about Koha and open source in general and would never have stopped doing that.

Thanks,
Nicole C. Engard
Koha Documentation Manager

I am very excited about this move and I have to say that my new job title is as cool as my last (maybe cooler) – I will be the Director of Open Source Education. Keep an eye out for more news throughout the month with details about the job and my future responsibilities.

[update] Press Release announcing my move. [/update]

    “Medium” is singular. “Media” is plural.

    In your opening line above, it should say “other media.”

    Just being annoying.

    Congratulations on your new job!!
