Moving Up and Remaining Open

Many of you have already seen this announcement via other media, but I wanted to share here anyway πŸ˜‰ 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 πŸ™‚ 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 πŸ™‚ 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.

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

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

    Just being annoying.

    Congratulations on your new job!!
