Where has Benedikt been?

Benedikt Ritter-4
Hi,

following the example from Rob in early November, I’d like to explain my recent two month in-actvity.

As always this has been work related. I had to go through a pretty tough phase at work, that consumed all my energy. I’m currently working on a green field project for a customer, which will replace the customers core systems. So the project is very important for them and we had to cope with people leaving the project, becoming sink and of corse issues with the infrastructure ;-) Further more the project is located in Hamburg in northern Germany and I’m living near Düsseldorf in western Germany which means I have to travel to Hamburg every two weeks. Beside that my girl friend turned 30 last week and we organized a big party for sixty-something friends. So a lot to do for too few time.

But the year is almost over and I’m looking forward to some relaxing days off where I have some time to work on Apache stuff again. So I’m planning to work on my TODO list where I left off. I remember that I wanted to push some releases for Java 9 compatibility and move some of the components to git… I’ll have to dig though my mails to find out what I wanted to do next...
Another amazing thing that has just happened is that my company [1] brought their very first project to the Apache Incubator [2] and I’m part of that!

So I’m looking forward to being more involved again!
Cheers,
Benedikt

Welcome back! Completely understandable as I was in a similar situation the
past few months but have moved on to independent consulting and have
regained a lot of time finally. Java 9 (and now 10!) are definitely great
places to improve!

Yes. Pardon my absence from earlier, and pardon that i didn’t send a mail out to everyone.

Anyways, glad things have settled for you Benedikt.
