Misc.: May 2006 Archives

I think it is time for a little status update on “where I am heading” :)


After Novell closing the lab. in Copenhagen (and me aparently getting laid :-) ), I moved to Gijón on the northern coast of Spain. I’ve worked as an XForms consultant for Fundación CTIC, which also allowed me to keep working on the Mozilla XForms Extension.

It has been some very good four months here! I have liked the workplace, the people, the food, the countryside, the general ambience, etc. It has been an enriching experience, to again live for an extended period in another country here in Europe (I’ve also lived in France for a year, many years ago). So I feel rather sad about leaving. But it will probably not be the last time I will be in Spain :-)


For now, I am still in Spain though — putting the final touches on the 0.6 version of the XForms extension, which will be available in a week or two. We’ve taken yet another big step towards XForms 1.0 compliance and reaching a stable product. Another good effort by the entire team!

I’m also trying to finish unfinished samples, put the final touches on my XForms test harness/suite, etc, etc. So much to do, so little time, as I only have one week left to do it all in. Because …


When I finish the contract down here, my original plan was to retract to good old Denmark. I will leave Spain around June 11th, and then go on two weeks of vacation: Driving (slowly) from Gijón to Copenhagen (around 2500 km). Or rather, Copenhagen was the original plan. Still the same vacation, but I’ll stop a few kilometers before that: in Leiden, The Netherlands. Because that’s where my new job is. So much for returning to Denmark, but I am getting closer :-)

I cannot really reveal much about the new job, as it is all very hush hush at this point. But I’ll stay connected to both Mozilla and XForms. To what degree, and how “public”, my involvement will be in these, is a bit unknown for now. I will also keep hanging out in the W3C XForms working group though.

I cannot keep my current level of involvement in the Mozilla XForms Extension though. At least for the first many months, I suspect I will be very little involved. I’ll still hang out on IRC, and try to do a review now and then though.

But now the workday is ending. It’s Friday. The sun is shining. I am in Spain. Beach time maybe? :-) Have a nice weekend!
