Goodbye 10gen, Hello Google


After five wonderful years, I’ve decided to leave 10gen and join Google. I’m going to miss working with all of my coworkers and the community tons, you guys are awesome.

I will hopefully continue blogging, but Snail in a Turtleneck will probably not be as MongoDB-focused anymore. If you’re looking for some good MongoDB reads, I recommend checking out Planet Mongo, an aggregator of MongoDB-related blogs, and in particular:

If I’ve missed any MongoDB blogs you find helpful, let me know in the comments and I’ll add them to the list!

I will be finishing the second edition of MongoDB: The Definitive Guide in a few weeks and it should be out by the end of the year.  Once I’m done with that, hopefully I’ll have a few weeks to relax.

  • You will be missed for sure! Good luck for your next endeavor. Are you gonna move to the west coast or stay in NYC?

    Thank you!  I’ll be staying in NYC.

  • Congratulations! Best of luck at google!

    Thank you!

  • Jeff Lee

    Congrats on the new job and thanks for being such a great resource to the Mongo community – you’ll definitely be missed.

  • Francesca Krihely

  • Yow!  That’s big news. 

    It would be hard to overstate your contributions to the Mongosphere.  We’ll do what we can over at the MongoLab blog to help slake the collective thirst for Arcane Mongo Knowledge … but as you leave orbit there’ll be a mighty big void to fill.

    Best of luck with the Googler hazing thing.  I hear it’s a pretty swell place to work, all in all.  🙂
