Wow, 2018 is already over, and a new year has started. It’s a usual time to look back at what we’ve achieved, make a clean slate (zero inbox), take a deep breath and jump ahead to the new projects, goals or adventures, both personal and professional. Including posting more on this blog ! 🙂
I’m wishing every day of the new year to be filled with love, success, happiness and prosperity for you. Happy New Year! Bonne Année ! Godt Nytt í r ! ¡ Feliz año nuevo ! あけましておめでとうございます。 …
This was my first participation to the events in this region (somehow I managed to convince my family to move our vacation earlier so I could attend), and it was great meeting in person with many customers and prospects I’ve interacted with over the phone, as well as meeting the ForgeRock colleagues I hadn’t seen for a while. As usual, the conversations around our products and the customers solutions were very rich and open, and I came back with great inputs and confirmations for our roadmaps.
You can find my photos of the events in the following Flickr albums:
I’m one of the organisers of a developers’ conference here in Grenoble, France, the SnowCamp. The 3rd edition took place last week at Minatec. During 3 days, we hosted 10 University workshops, 40 presentations, 3 keynotes, and welcomed 375 attendees. And on the Saturday, we ran a smaller unconference with some of the speakers on the snowy slopes of Chamrousse, the closest ski resort to Grenoble.
It has been 4 very intense days, but I’m really happy with how smooth the event went, and I’m excited to help organising it again next year (no spoiler, but it should take place end of January 2019).
Yes, the picture looks familiar for those who have already come to visited us. In fact, we haven’t changed address, we’ve just moved the ForgeRock Grenoble Engineering Center to a new office space, in the same building, doubling in size, building our lab in the facilities.
With now 23 employees based in the Grenoble area, the expansion was long due. We now have more space for everyone, more meeting rooms, a creative area with huge white board, and a dedicated kitchen area.
Last Thursday, Mike Ellis, ForgeRock CEO, and Jonathan Scudder, co-founder were in the office for the opening party.
We also had visitors from the Bristol engineering team, the Vancouver WA engineering team and the Czech republic ProfiQ team, truly showing our diversity and international presence.
I hope that we will continue to grow as we’ve been doing in these first 7 years… We have an amazing team and a great culture. Let’s keep rocking on!
