Today is my last day as an employee of Meteor Development Group – I’m making a leap to programming! I want to thank everyone in the Meteor community for making my work such a joy for the last two-and-a-half years, and I expect you’ll continue seeing me around. I will certainly be taking my own advice to budding web developers and using Meteor a lot. It’s been a major inspiration to see the projects we the community have built with Meteor, from major production apps to weekend hacks and everything in between.
For those of you who may not know me super well, I joined MDG in Feb 2013 as a junior-level community manager, doing things like running our monthly San Francisco Devshop event, helping captains start and maintain their own meetup groups all over the world, mailing swag and thank you notes to people, running our social media feeds, writing blog posts, and a bunch of other things. (There’s always lots to do in a 10-person startup!) Then I moved to doing content full-time and wrote lots and lots of blog posts and emails to the mailing list. And finally I became Director of Community last November and got to lead an awesome community team. The company has more than tripled in size since I joined, and the Meteor community has grown still more – it’s been amazing to be part of that, and I’m so excited for Meteor’s future.
Feel free to ask me anything here, and feel free to say hi through any of my personal channels. I usually go by the name “yaliceme” on the internet; my rudimentary personal website is yalice.me.
Thanks everyone for everything!
