Moving on to other things

If you have been following my blog, you may have noticed that I see Sugar Labs as having done a lot of progress recently in the sustainability front. This has been thanks to the efforts of several individuals, who gathered around Sugar Labs in the believe that computers could radically improve the educational opportunities of children anywhere in the world, and that none of the pre-existing software environments was the best suited for the task.

It has been an awesome adventure, maybe the biggest in my life, but time has come for me to move to less thrilling matters. This doesn't mean that I'm cutting completely with Sugar, just that it will take now just a small part of my free time. I intend to skim through a couple of mailing lists, to organize bi-weekly meetings for the development team, and to review patches in the queue of my modules as time permits. I'm aiming to dedicate to all this only 5 hours per week to Sugar matters, so I will have to be very strict on where this time is spent.

I'm starting just now to look for my next job, so if you know of a position for someone knowledgeable of the GNOME platform, Python, with a good sense of FOSS communities and a taste for diving into big codebases, please do forward to me at tomeu@tomeuvizoso.net. Here is my resume.

Maybe http://www.ubuntu.com/employment/ has something suitable at the moment. I don't know exactly what we're looking for, but it's often GNOME and Python related :)
