Farewell to Opera

Long story short, I’m leaving Opera Software ASA. I’ll be an employee for a while longer but with 10.51 out the door, you won’t see me around the office that much.

Now is the time to click play at the top of this post1.

I truly enjoyed my time in Opera. The people are beyond cool, I was always surrounded by geeks with an extraordinary drive to make the best product possible. Exactly type of place I like working in.

In addition, I had the opportunity to live in Norway, an amazing country filled with reserved-yet-welcoming people. If you’re ever around, wait until the second beer, that’s when Norwegians true personality appears.

I could go on and on about the great friends I’ve made and all the rest, but The Pogues said it best:

I’m sad to say I must be on my way/So buy me beer and whiskey cause I’m going far away/I’d like to think of me returning when I can/To the greatest little boozer and to Sally MacLennane.

Regarding what’s next, nothing official yet. There are crazy plans, and sensible ones. Some are close, yet most are far away.

Whatever the case, I’m excited. It’s a great time to be a geek, and there is no excuse for not doing something great.
