All the world’s a stage,
And all the men and women merely players:
They have their exits and their entrances;
And one man in his time plays many parts
— ‘As You Like It’, Shakespeare
It is not often that you have to make a choice between an amazing job, and another amazing job. But, after six years with Red Hat, I have decided to take up a new position with Rackspace, effective 28 October.
I have grown up with Red Hat, in particular the Australian writing team, and in many ways the person I am today has been shaped by the people and the culture here in the Brisbane office. I am sad to be leaving, but I take a little piece of that crimson fedora with me. To all my friends and colleagues at Red Hat: keep up the great work, keep innovating, and know that there are Red Hat alumni out there, cheering you on from the sidelines.
To anyone who is considering embarking on a technical writing career, or expanding their tech writing horizons, consider joining the team at Red Hat. They’re doing groundbreaking work, they’re doing it out in the open, and they’re having a huge amount of fun as they do it.
I’ll be blogging a lot more in my new role, so please stay tuned as this site gets a bit of a nip and a tuck, and before long you’ll start seeing a lot more from me.
