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:
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.
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.
