Joining Canonical

Recently, I’ve had something of a secret. It’s been hard to keep quiet but now I can let everyone know.

In a few weeks, I shall be joining Canonical to work on the marketing for Launchpad.

I’ve felt an affinity with Canonical – also the people behind Ubuntu – since we first interviewed Mark Shuttleworth, the company’s founder, on LugRadio. Their pragmatic, yet principled, human-focused approach matches my own passion for widening the acceptability of open source software.

I look forward to sharing some of my plans for the role, over the coming weeks, and to joining one of the most exciting tech companies in the world!
