I'm changing jobs!

From February 2015, I will be joining Red Hat as a Senior Software Engineer. I'll be based in Newcastle and working with the Middleware team. I'm going to be working with virtualisation, containers and Docker in particular. I know a few of the folks in the Newcastle office already, thanks to their relationship with the School of Computing Science, and I'm very excited to work with them, as well as the wider company. It's also going to be great to be contributing to the free software community as part of my day job.

This October marked my tenth year working for Newcastle University. I've had a great time, learned a huge amount, and made some great friends. It's going to be sad to leave, especially the School of Computing Science where I've spent the last four years, but it's the right time to move on, It's an area that I've been personally interested in for a long time and I'm very excited to be trying something new.

@zlatan: I plan to, but we'll have to see. I'm not a particularly effective participant in Debian at the moment, and I'd like to review my involvement. I don't want to remain involved unless I'm doing something I feel is worthwhile.

@Anonymous: that's a localisation issue, "virtualisation" is en_GB.

Fowler's Modern English Usage (qv) has some interesting things to say about the use of ise vs ize and is, in general, a perfect rebuff to yer terrorist language pedant. Of course, the only people who would read such a book are terrorist language pedants. ho hum!
