Back into the game April 1, 2010

Posted by Sacha in CloudBees, English, IT.

Flying BeeOne year ago, I left RHT with the clear plan to be actively doing nothing for some time. I did, but quickly realized I wasn’t good at it: it is not easy to relax when your brain keeps wondering what you could be doing next.

So I’ve started working with several startups, including eXo Platform and Wallix, but that only increased my desire to be back into the game.

And so today is the official start date of my new venture. I won’t tell you much about it at this point:  I’d rather wait until we have something real to show – that shouldn’t take long.

But who is “we”? Five highly talented engineers from ORCL, SUN and JBoss. Last but not least, my friend Bob Bickel accepted to be our advisor. Life is great.

So stay tuned…

Pascal (Pujo), this is not an April’s fool… just in case you wonder… 😉

Pascal - April 2, 2010

Hi Sacha,

nice to read you’re back with something else than a joke for the 1st of April. Your previous one was not so funny 😉

I am now waiting for some more substantial news about your new baby. How is it since you are pregnant? When is the delivery planned? And please, do not answer “the 1st of April 2011”.
