Bye bye Helsinki! Hi Berlin!
It’s been almost 5 years since I arrived first time to Finland. Lots of things happened since. I broke up with my Spanish girlfriend, made new good friends (some BFFs), went out with some girls, met my wife, bought a house, got married, became a father… even the Spanish soccer team won the Eurocup and the World Cup. Once in a lifetime! :)
On the professional side, things also went very nice. MeeGo (ex-Maemo, ex-OSSO) is more alive and relevant than ever and I’m proud of having been working with great people and being responsible of an awesome team that does more than the impossible. I’m very happy of having been able to create an open-source-project-like environment where everybody puts their passion on creating something of value, whether we do open source, pure proprietary software or the combination of both.
Unfortunately living in Finland hasn’t been as easy and it was really becoming a hassle for me and my family. That means, because of personal reasons, I’ll be leaving Finland to relocate to Berlin.
The good thing is I’m not leaving Nokia and I’ll still be working very very closely to MeeGo on something very interesting.
I have to thank Finland for these wonderful years full of experiences and continuous learning. Also and more importantly, I have to thank all the people I met here in Finland along all these years. I will be missing all of you :’)
See ya in Berlin! :)
