This is probably the final post in my adventure since leaving Jelsoft in June, I'm pleased to announce to those who aren't in my inner circle that I'll be joining Facebook as an Open Source Developer Advocate (a position which combines engineering and evangelism).
Now for those wondering what exactly that means, I'll continue contributing to the PHP internals along with this I'll also be working on some Facebook developed PHP infrastructure technologies and tools and generally representing Facebook within the PHP community.
It's no secret that Facebook use PHP to power their site, they're probably one of it's biggest users and I'm really excited to work there. With all the smart people there one should expect some pretty amazing things for PHP in the coming year.
On a personal note it means that I'm moving from England to America, specifically San Francisco. I've already put this into motion and hope to have it completed at some point in January.
2009 has been a popular year for members of the PHP community to become funemployed, some of my current "colleagues" include Andrei Zmievski, Brandon Savage, Cal Evans, Chris Shiflett, Derick Rethans, Eli White, Nick Sloan and Sean Coates.
