Moving On From Huawei

After just over a year at Huawei, it's time to move on... Later today I'll be handing back my Huawei laptop and badge; on Monday I'll be attending orientation at, where I'll be joining the developer evangelism team.

It's been an interesting and productive year at Huawei - if you've been following my blog, you'll know that I've been doing some pretty low level stuff - Linux kernel drivers and server daemons, and I've learned lots about zero-copy technology and semaphores. All fascinating stuff, working with great people and visiting some cool places, but, still, I missed the interaction with a developer community that I enjoyed as Sun's 'OpenSSO Community Guy'.

As is traditional, I've trawled YouTube for an appropriate song to mark the occasion. I almost settled for Led Zep's Babe I'm Gonna Leave You, but stumbled across the Quivver remix of the same song - a very different take on the classic, and well worth a listen. If you like what you hear, you can pick it up on Perfecto Presents Another World.
