New job - impact on JSR-310

This is a quick blog to outline my upcoming job change and how it affects JSR-310.

For many years I've worked for SITA, global leader in air transport communications and IT solutions. But the time has come to move on, so from the 1st of March I'm starting a new job at a London startup, Open Gamma.

So, what can I tell you about Open Gamma? Well not too much just yet as its only just coming out of stealth mode. I can say they're lead by Kirk Wylie, they're building technology for the financial industry, and I'm excited about their big idea! Oh, and they're hiring (London only).

And how does this affect JSR-310?

Well, OpenGamma will be actively supporting my work on JSR-310 in work time! Clearly this will have a big impact on development pace, and we may yet make JDK 7 (but of course thats up to the SunOracle).

In the meantime, watch out for the Early Draft Review of JSR-310 where I'll need maximum feedback!

  2. Hey, good luck!

    I'd not even taken in that you were in the UK, never mind London! No points for observation for me...
