As of today, I've stepped down as full time Developer for MODX. It's been a helluva ride over the past year, and I don't regret taking the opportunity to work with this team at all. In the past months, a huge amount of attention has been shifting to MODX Cloud and while Cloud is a pretty cool platform, I'm more of an open source guy. The closed nature of Cloud has been quite frustrating at times.

To ensure support continuity, I'll continue to hang out with the MODX Cloud team for some time to provide support in European timezones, leaving plenty of time for cool initiatives and learning new stuff as part of my own business. I've got some exciting things planned for the future which I can't wait to share with all of you (no teasers yet tho, sorry!) and I'm looking forward to spending more of my time with the MODX community. I'm also launching a new iteration of this site with a cleaner design and more focus on the content soon!

I'm sure some of you will be disappointed hearing this, but I am not planning on going back to a lot of freelancing, like I did before I joined MODX. I feel that I've neglected or postponed a lot of personal projects for far too long, and this is a great opportunity to revive and maybe even finish some projects for a change! ;) I will consider super awesome projects of course (especially if they are directly related to personal projects), so feel free to shoot me a message if you have a great idea.

As I realize this is quite a short blog post, here's one of my all-time favorite videos for your watching pleasure.

(A sequel to my jQuery Manager post is coming really soon, I promise!)

This is sad news. For one: Based on this blog, I'm sure MODx benefits from your work. For two: The idea that MODx seems more and more like a closed platform is bad for all of us... at least those of us who don't have any financial interest in the MODx Cloud solution.

While I would prefer to keep comments open indefinitely, the amount of spam that old articles attract is becoming a strain to keep up with and I can't always answer questions about ancient blog postings. If you have valuable feedback or important questions, please feel free to get in touch.
