A few months ago when I started my role at Haxe I was extremely excited about the opportunity to challenge myself in a new position and help grow the tools and the community. Since that time I’ve met some fantastic people, some of the best developers I’ve ever encountered along with several extremely passionate community members. I have been met with tremendous enthusiasm from great individuals and am extremely thankful for the warm reception I’ve received. Unfortunately, since then it has become apparent that this is not the right role for me and I’ve decided to return to a developer position full-time, therefore I will no longer be an employee of the Haxe Foundation. This decision was not easy to make and it does not reflect my opinion of Haxe, it mostly has to do with the type of work I like to engage in and the opportunities I’m able to pursue focusing on development. Creating the type of content needed to promote the Haxe platform is a crucial job and someone with extreme commitment to that task is needed.
I will still be involved with Haxe, in the near term I will publish an article on the user survey and going forward I plan to continue contributing to the community where I have an opportunity. I will continue to use Haxe both professionally and personally and will promote it as a viable solution where appropriate.
I’d like to stress that this is a personal decision and does not reflect on anyone or anything specific to the Haxe community or foundation. The welcome and support I’ve received from everyone has been tremendous and it is with sadness that I’ve come to this decision. I still have the utmost confidence in the Haxe tools and believe that there is still a massive opportunity to grow and I look forward to participating in this expansion in the months and years to come.
