I miss this blog and I miss Ubuntu Community

I have been away from this blog for many reasons starting from personal decision to quit the professional programming life so I can go back to my real thing which is Politics ending with the lack of a better option; However I’m sure the years of programming life would have influence on my next step in life but not sure how yet.

I’m still interested in opening vim and coding but probably from now on it’s going to be for fun only; however I hope the theory that says if you code for fun you might end up making a profit more than you planned would work but yet I’m not going to spend lots of time on it as I decided to take a different path now.

The last straw was when I decided to resign from Dot.Jo (Which is an amazing company) to put more efforts on Ubuntu Community in the Kingdom and Arab world. Thankfully we succeed but partially due to the recession hit. It didn’t allow longer breath especially with the lack of sponsorship, we were so close to have National Open Source Office but I’d blame the recession and probably some other factors.

I’ve also decided to hand out access of communities I was handling like Jolug and specifically Ubuntu Arabic team, Ubuntu Jordan to some new blood; The good ones are taken seems to be true in communities case, all qualified people I approached were bloody busy to handle anything and right now Ubuntu Arabic and Ubuntu Jordan on idle mode.

As a amateur programmer from now on I might try to play with Django but not sure how it will go with the limited time for my hobbies but I will do my best to keep this blog updated at least with some general stuff but of course will try to stay away from iPhone VS android war; but don’t take it as a promise ;). I will also try contribute to Ubuntu Community, at least seasonally.

Until the next post.
