To continue the trend

today was my last day with OpenedHand. I'd just like to take this opportunity to say "thank you" to everyone at OH. I've had a great time working there, and learnt so much while working with people like Matthew/Emmanuele/Ross/Thomas on some of the coolest projects around.

Looking forward, I'm excited to say that on Monday I'll be starting at Canonical as a "User Interface and Applications Engineer for Mobile Internet Devices". I'll be doing the same type of work as before, with continuing work with creating/adapting Gtk & Clutter applications for mobile systems & touch-based UIs. The goal being to make sure that Ubuntu Mobile is as usable & pretty as any other mobile platform out there :-).

"as any other mobile platform out there"?? Not a good goal. Almost any other mobile platform sucks, UI wise.

@Eugen: Thanks

@Anon: Agreed, but the sentiment of the post is more about the changing of companies rather than my work at Canonical. I hope to follow up with a more in-depth post about my work once I start.
