As some of you guys may know, I just moved to Microsoft Redmond and in the process I learned how hard is to say goodbye. I have been working in Microsoft Singapore as a developer evangelist for the past 22 months and I am truly happy that I got to know all of you through various conferences, meet-ups, events or just emails I exchanged with the developer community. You guys’ passion for technology always inspired me. Many events we held in weekends and many UG meet-ups happened night after working hours, but people always showed up and joined the discussion actively. I respect all of you for that “willingness to learn and the love for technology”. No matter what technologies you use, as a developer, you will always find a community in Singapore. Such an amazing place for developers!
Here below, I’d like to thank the people with whom I have worked on some events:
- Geekcamp 2010 and 2011 with Justin Lee, Luther, Lawrence,Jason
- Barcamp 2010 with Preetam
- Various PHP event and UG with Michael Cheng
- SuperHappyDevHouse with Jason and Vinnie
- Drupal Camp 2012 with Sven
- WordPress meet up and conference with Hazrul and Lester
- Echelon with Joash and Gabriel
- Start SGGeekGirl community with Joyce Huang
- All the developers I have worked with for various cloud projects, #WhereIsMyLumia Campaign or simplely meet-up during the events
I respect you guys for efforts you continuously demonstrate as tech community leaders and how you always dedicate your spare time to the benefits of local developers. As an evangelist, I have been talking about Microsoft technologies, but at the same time I have learned a lot about other technologies from you, THANK YOU!
Being an Evangelist is such a cool job where I kept learning and expressing my interest for technologies, it was an amazing time and one of most interesting city, Singapore. In the future, I will be working as a Program Manager in Media Team, we create video streaming technology.
And one last things, if one day you visit Seattle, don’t hesitate to ping me, I’d love to catch up!
