Life Line

Good bye eZ Systems

During the past 6 years I've been working as a developer for eZ Systems — first as a developer on eZ Publish and later as project lead for eZ Components. Working on a project like eZ Components as lead was challenging and interesting and taught me many things. eZ Systems as a company is changing a lot, and now the time has come for me to move on and find something new and exciting to do. I've recently moved to London to explore life from a different point of view, and that will now also include a search for a new challenge professionally. I will still be with eZ Systems for awhile longer to finish the next eZ Components release. If you think you can provide me with a new challenge, feel free to contact me.

Thank you for being such a big driving force in the eZ community Derek. Your thinking and intuition will be greatly missed.

Sorry to hear that. Good Luck and best wishes from me and the whole all2e Team !

Good luck with the job search, I'm sure with your stature that won't be a big challenge. (and if you want to talk, you know where to find me ;-)

Hi Derick,

Good bye Derick ! Take care !

good luck with your future endavours!

Hey tiger you are going to move ;) Enjoy this next few years !


Best of luck to you, Derick. Your contributions to the PHP community have been amazing so I am sure what you have brought to eZ is equally amazing. They will surely miss your expertise. I hope you find the challenge you are looking for.

Good luck in all of your future endeavors Derick!

You have done a great job. For me, ezComponents is the highest quality PHP code I have seen.

Wish you best of luck wherever you go.

Hallo Derick,

Dat is een grote stap om even te doen! Je zal vast weer iets moois op je weg vinden. Succes!

Groet Ronald K.
