Farewell, Sort Of


Hey Awesome Devs,

As many of you may or may not know, I joined the elementary team a little
over two years ago. I had been following the project from its humble
origins as an icon set and watched it grow into much more: a philosophy, a
way of thinking, and a truly powerful software movement.

In the time since, I've been on board as a community manager, a sort of
public relations guy, a Council member, and a user experience designer.
I've floated to where I was needed, helping as much as I could.

It's time to continue that flux, albeit with another software project. I've
been approached by Canonical to work as a user experience designer for
Ubuntu. I'll be working alongside the awesome designers at Canonical on
Ubuntu and their mobile efforts. I'm excited to bring the promise of truly
free software to a much wider audience, and I couldn't ask for a better
team to be working with.

I will attempt to still be present in the elementary community and
contribute when my new career allows, though I expect it to be at a much
smaller capacity compared to now. I wish you all the best of luck with Luna
and future releases.

Cassidy James
