Time For New Adventures

Posted on May 25 2012

As announced on the Haxe mailing list, after more than 10 years I'll be leaving Motion-Twin in a few months.

This will not affect in any aspect my personal investment in Haxe or any part of the project, since most of the time spent in compiler development was already made on my spare/hobby time. I will also make sure that any future work that I do after that is mostly done in Haxe, since I don't feel much like writing in another language anymore.

In order to have something very clean for Haxe perceptions for companies, I'll make sure that we create soon a Haxe Foundation (NonProfit) that will hold the rights on the code, trademark, host the website etc. Any help is welcome.

I have not 100% decided yet what I will do next, although I have some serious paths I'm currently exploring. I might then be still open to proposals ;)

Time for new adventures !

    Change is good :) I wonder what you will do next. Looking forward to hearing more details!

    A Haxe Foundation is probably the best thing that could happen to haxe at this moment. Hopefully more companies will look then at this amazing language (or looking at it more short-term, I'll have an easier job "selling" Haxe to my supervisors ;) ).
    Good luck in your new adventures.

    Awesome, congratulation on everything you've done so far. Really am admirative, and also think it can only be for the best.

    Don't hesitate visiting if passing through Shanghai.

    Good luck on your future endeavors! A Haxe foundation sounds ideal as most companies I've talked to about Haxe ask if there is a foundation or major backer to the language. I've heard that the Apache foundation is also looking for more projects to support.

    If you're ever in San Francisco, let me know!

    Best, Jonathan (jadbox.com)

    Best wishes for the next adventures, from an early fan of all the good work you did for the community. Haxe foundation seems a great idea.

    En éspérant que le choix soit bon ! C'est vraiment dommage car vos jeux était excellent et je me demandes qui les développera ! En tout cas bonne suit Monsieur Nicolas j'utilise votre language pour réaliser mon jeu, et c'est vraiment génial :D !

    I like the idea of a Foundation, this might be a good time to change the name of Haxe to something more professional. The perception of Haxe as a hobby project has to go. That is, in my opinion, the biggest thing holding Haxe back. What publisher is going to be impressed when you tell them your whole product is written in a language with "hack" in the title? Just my take on it.. good luck!

    I wish I could attend WWX Conference, thanks for your tremendous work, I hope I will be able to repay you and community. For now with my skills I'm only a poor leech.
    ps. Please post some more from conference(pretty please ...)

    For now what turns me off is that there are no examples of more complicated applications than simple games. Source code to play with would bring many audience to Haxe and would prove that Haxe is worth trying.

    Thanks again
