This week is my last at Oracle, next week I'll be starting a new job with Mitre .
I started looking around for a "Plan B" prior to the Sun acquisition closing in February, mainly due to uncertainty about whether I'd be offerred a position with Oracle. A friend introduced me to an excellent opportunity at Mitre and, after a couple of rounds of interviews and a lot of thought, Plan B morphed into Plan A.
I've enjoyed my short stint with Oracle, it was great to be able to work on Jersey again after 18 months or so doing other things and hopefully the declarative hyperlinking extensions and WADL generation improvements I've been working on will have legs after I leave. I don't know yet whether my new role will afford the opportunity to contribute further to Jersey and/or JAX-RS but I'll be working on the application of open services technologies to national problems so its possible.
I plan to continue blogging here when I can, so stay tuned for the next chapter.
