Good Bye Open Knowledge, Hello Scary World

08 Jul 2015 - personal

I’ve been with Open Knowledge since October 2, 2012. It’s been 2 years and 8 months. Back then, I had just lost an opportunity to work at Mozilla with James Socol. I wasn’t sure what I wanted to do, but Open Knowledge looked very attractive. Open Knowledge has connections to Mozilla and Canonical – The two open source communities I’ve worked with heavily. In the last few years, I’ve worked on crowdcrafting.org, openspending.org, and CKAN; conducted trainings in 2 countries; and visited London, Cambridge, Nairobi, Dar es Salaam, and Berlin for work. It’s been a fantastic few years. And it’s time to move on.

Good Bye!

From 22nd July, I will no longer be a full-time staff at Open Knowledge. I’ll be around as a freelancer to help transition my position and I’ll be available as a freelancer. I’m already setup to do business and I’m excited to do interesting work. I’m currently working with Miranj, Vidhi, and Guiding Tech!

If you want a short-term python developer/linux sysadmin or some custom CKAN development done, please get in touch with me.
