Dalibor Topic, welcome to Sun!

Posted by terrencebarr on April 14, 2008 at 6:28 PM PDT

Back from a 4 week hiatus (vacation, traveling, and various bouts of flu and colds) it's time to crank up the blogging again ... starting with a great bit of news:

We're excited to announce that Dalibor Topic is joining Sun as Java F/OSS Ambassador. Dalibor, of course, is known for his long involvement with the open source community and Java, being an outspoken thought leader for the free software movement, a co-maintainer of the kaffe.org VM project, participating in GNU Classpath, and recently becoming a member of the OpenJDK interim governing board. He has excellent connections to organizations and companies in the industry and has worked on a number of projects bringing Java and open source to the real world.

Dalibor will be joining the Mobile & Embedded and OpenJDK team so we will be peers and colleagues going forward. I am looking forward to working with him and trust that he will do great things for open source and Java, now from within Sun. More on Dalibor's blog.

Welcome, Dalibor!
