thank u, next  ↦

In a post with a title borrowed from Ariana Grande, Steve Klabnik is announcing his departure from Mozilla and what he hopes could be his next moves.

Mozilla is not interested in hearing what I have to say. And that’s fine, but when I take a step back and think about things, that means it’s time to go, for both my sake and Mozilla’s. So I’ve just put in my two weeks’ notice.

The interesting thing isn’t exactly that he’s moving on from Mozilla, it’s that he’s betting big on WebAssembly.

I’ve also been enamored with another technology recently: WebAssembly. 2019 is going to be a huge year for WebAssembly, even if many people don’t know it yet, and may not see the effects until 2020.

So what’s his next move? Something different…

In terms of the actual work I would like to do, I don’t think a traditional engineering role really suits me. Don’t get me wrong, I love to write some code, but I don’t think that those kinds of roles really play to my unique strengths. What I really love to do is teaching, evangelizing, and growing something.
