 June

June 18th was my last day at Red Hat.

I spent last week road-tripping to Eastern Canada with my friends.

In a couple of weeks I will start working for Google Canada in the Waterloo office. I will be working for a large part on HarfBuzz as part of the Chrome / ChromeOS team.

Unfortunately the setup also means that I have to skip this year's GUADEC as I can't get a visa on time :(.

I will keep my current GNOME duties, namely maintaining the text stack (fribidi, fontconfig, harfbuzz, pango, etc) as well as vte. The break may give me some time hacking on things I couldn't get the time to hack on before even. We'll see.

That's all for June.

Al the best for your new job
 
Good luck with new job.
 
Congrats! I only know a few of the Chrome / Chrome OS guys but they're all really awesome.

Also, they all keep muttering about text rendering on Linux so you'll have your work cut out for you...
 
Congrats on the new job!
Congrats to Google too.

I've added you to the list of Google Open Source stars
 
Will this stuff be possible on Chromi too?

Good luck behdad!
 
Congrats and best of luck, Behdad!
 
Congrats, Behdad!
 
It would make me so happy if you got the chrome guys to support the lcdfilter parameter in fonts.conf
 
Goodbye Behdad! It's been nice having you around GNOME, I am sure you'll do very well in Google.

It's not that I don't trust you, but hackers going to Google have a long history of dropping off the planet (or almost).

I wish you all the best!

Cheers,
Dave.
 
Thank you everyone.
 
Congratulations on the new job! I'm sorry we'll miss you at GUADEC.
 
congrad on the new job. Hope proper RTL rendering for persian/arabic gets some spot in the official release line of android production releases soon...
