What a journey folks!
Everything started in 2012 (Alfresco version 3.4) and since then I spent days, nights and even holidays developing solutions as well as products, writing hundreds of blog posts, tweets, LinkedIn articles and presentations, webinars, in-person events all over Europe as well as working with community-edition partners, official partners, big and small customers and professional on independent big/small projects.
I have been a lucky person because following this amazing platform and its community of enthusiasts, I made it real to follow a passion and Alfresco (as the Company) allowed me to reach that dream.
I met people from all over the world and I have been part of the Team working on the platform, in all the roles that I loved most (developer experience and relations). I worked (and had a lot of fun) with smart people from the Community of Developers that I respect from a technical and personal point of view.
Today I’m not the same person that I was in 2012. Not only from a professional point of view, but also from a personal point of view. This is what I will take with me, and this is what I’m most grateful to all of you as individuals as well as alfrescans.
It is incredibly hard to build a great platform as Alfresco is, but it’s close to magic to find great people as part of a unique ecosystem as it is for the amazing Alfresco Community (outside and inside the Company).
Note added the 29th of April:
Today’s Alfresco reunion on Zoom with almost 40 “old” and “new” alfrescans from inside and outside the Company, has been simply fantastic and made me happy. This is the best gift I could have received for my farewell to this work and life experience. Thank you all.
