This is a journey I’ve started 14 years ago, and unfortunately it comes to an end.
I’ve joined the Mozilla community by accident, back in 2003 (yes, before Twitter, Facebook and Youtube). I’ve been involved in several campaigns and projects as Volunteer, and I was part of the team that launched Firefox OS in 2013 in Spain. In 2014 I had the privilege to start working in Mozilla, joining the Events team.
I’ve been part of incredible events and projects during these last 3 years:
- Firefox 10th Anniversary (with buses in Brazil, India and Germany)
- Brazil and Arabic meetup (2014)
- Community Gatherings (2015 & 2016)
- FOSDEM 2015, 2016 & 2017
- All Hands
And so many other things that happened. I’ve been inspired by the community, worked with amazing people from all over the globe. I would like to thank so many people that it’s impossible to name everyone here. I also would like to thank all the volunteers for your patience and your amazing work… you are key to Mozilla success, and you were my main source of inspiration on my day to day job.
It’s hard to say goodbye, but this is how life evolves, new things will come and I believe that the Mozilla community will show its strength and prove why it’s a reference in the Open Source environment.
I will take some time off, looking for something that makes me feel vibrant and inspired, but feel free to ping me if you need help. I will help as much as I can, specially if it’s for Mozilla.
See you around.
