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
  • Organized BeermateJS JavaScript user group with Kenny Shen and Seebastiaan
  • 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.

If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to email for any inquiry. The team behind this email is my lovely team – Singapore Developer and Platform Evangelism (DPE). I will always appreciate what this team gave to me and how much they have helped me. They are having a upcoming event called Campfire and you could register here. Campfire proudly presents two days of cutting edge learning and inspiration from April 13 – 14, 2012, and the topics cover HTML5, design, cloud, mobile development and web development.

And one last things, if one day you visit Seattle, don’t hesitate to ping me, I’d love to catch up!
