Leaving IBM Notes arena

Well am at a crossroads right now , I have been in software consultant and development for Nyherji near 6 years but my Notes history goes far longer , around 15 years. But last year I toke over from my brother as sales consultant  and corporate account for large companies here at Nyherji.  My brother was at that time fighting cancer and was going on sick leave Oct 2013 to get better. He past away 14 feb 2014 and I have stayed in his job and i have had less and less time for my previous job function.

So I have decided to focus on the current job and get more into VMware , Xserver , Lenovo sales plus other products that fall into corporate account sales. I still have the burning desire to develop and read a lot of planet lotus blogs with great interest. But as all of you  knows the Notes “World” is getting smaller and smaller by every day and there is only so many hours in the day to do both.

Thank You for your help in the past and inspiring me to do better:   Brad Balassaitis , Fredrik Norling , Mark Leusink , Jesse Gallagher, Karl-Henry Martinsson, John Jardin , Mark Roden , Jeremy Hodge, David Leedy , Michael Marcavage , Bruce Elgort , Tim Pistor , Carl Tyler.

Thanks for your friendship and I will keep up with you on your blogs.

Special thanks goes to Jake Howlett , You have been my mentor and i have learn so much from you in my early days of Notes.

Marry Xmas to you and your family

  1. Hi!
    Thanks for posting this. Very sorry to hear about your brother.

    Sounds like you have some good opportunities ahead. That’s great!

    You don’t need to leave anything – just pop in and say hi whenever you want. 🙂

    Clearly you like to develop and build things. So whether it’s XPages or ANY other technology I’d suggest you set aside some time to play around and just do some hobby coding. That might be the best of both worlds for you then.

    Oh and whatever you do. Share what you can! 🙂

  2. Thank you David and Carl. Yes I will be playing around with some Coding when I can. I will finish a project that am working on soon and publish it on git hub free for other to use.

  3. Hi Palmi, I’m sorry to hear about your brother. I also understand your decision. I’ve enjoyed being a Notes & Domino specialist for 20 years, but the demand for our skills has been shrinking for years and is now getting to the point that we really need look at other options. I hope you have great success with the new direction you’ll be focusing on and I hope we can keep in touch.
    Enjoy the holidays!

  4. Hi,

    Sorry to hear about your brother. I’ve seen the deadly outcome of that terrible disease already too often.

    With the pace that new technologies are born and evolving nowadays, you definitely don’t have to be bored. There is life (and lots of it) outside the yellow bubble 🙂

    Good luck and all the best with all your new endeavors. And keep coding!
