Old Friends, New Opportunity

Posted by Tejus Parikh on October 25, 2007

A little late (since the vast majority of readers of this blog are personally affected), but for historical purposes I’m blogging that I’m joining Appcelerator, Inc (formerly Hakano) as a software developer. I’m extremely excited about this opportunity for a few reasons. One, appcelerator is an open-source RIA platform that, of all things, uses internet technologies. You can actually run Appcelerator apps in a web-browser, no fancy plugins required. Add to that, the team’s full of people I know and respect, which is a big plus. Oh, and did I mention that I’ll get paid to work on open-source stuff?

All that said, I’m not leaving the old gig totally regret free (name withheld since I show up in a google search for it way to much already). I wish all the guys (and gal) remaining there the best of luck. I really enjoyed (most) of the time there and I’m definitely going to miss the environment that we built in the last year and a half.

So ‘Yay!’ RIA’s that work in a browser, and ‘Cheers!’ to Social Mobilization!
