The commander stands for the virtues of wisdom, sincerity, benevolence, courage and strictness. — Sun Tzu, Art of War
That is what I believed, when I worked tireless, relentless and fearless for the past 14 years at WSO2.
I sent my resignation 6 months ago, in November 2018 and was on sabbatical up until now. Six months is a long time, and I have not been engaged in any of the activities at WSO2 in this period of time. My official WSO2 employment end date is 31st May 2019.
I am grateful for all the opportunities. And I am slightly regretful of the circumstances under which I had to leave, maybe I stayed a touch too long with WSO2.
While people might wonder why I left, I would rather like to remember all the hard work I did at WSO2 over the years and would like to celebrate all my achievements.
It has been a long and tiering journey. What I enjoyed the most is working with multiple generations of younger people who were passionate, committed, energetic and much smarter than me. It is one thing that I worked day and night, but it was a luxury and a privilege to have had known a set of people who would trust, respect and responded to me whenever I wanted their help, be it early in the morning, middle of the day or middle of the night.
As I look forward towards the next decade, the final decade, of my career, I would want to focus on people development and career growth. That is what I did predominantly at WSO2 for a major part of my stay there. My objective is to take my skills and knowhow to the general public, beyond the IT industry.
If you believe that I helped your development and career growth in the past 14 years, please consider providing a LinkedIn recommendation.
Your recommendations will help others to get to know me and how I could help them. Those will also enable me to reach as many people as possible to empower them to help develop and grow in their lives in the coming years.
I would like to thank everyone who are there and who were at WSO2 for all the good memories!
