Amiga Events : Hyperion Fires Team Lead and Core Developer
Posted by ssolie on 2019/3/16 2:06:20 (14090 reads) News by the same author

I have been fired as "Team Lead." This was not really unexpected given my lackluster performance and conflicts with the current management team of late.

Unexpectedly, I have also been fired as a core developer. I was told, "...things need to change drastically."

I would like to take this opportunity to thank Ben Hermans for providing me the opportunity to work as a core developer and then team lead. Together, we produced many quality releases and updates for our eager customers.

Also a huge thank you to all the developers, beta testers, translators, business partners, etc. that I have had the pleasure to work with as team lead. It was a pleasure.

Steven Solie
Ex-AmigaOS Development Team Lead

P.S. By the way, I made up my own title...

One door closes... I am sure your passion for all things Amiga will find a new outlet. Thanks for all your hard work over the years. :)

I find it sad how over the years you were so trapped by Hyperion enforced NDA agreements you were unable to engage with your customers properly.

I hope you can be employed to make great things for the Amiga community through A-eon perhaps?

All the best Ssolie.

 Work for free
Fires sounds like you was hired :) Working for free didn't mean anyone can hire of fires anyone. Probably soon Hyperion will loose all devs who work for free. Or you pay, or nothing will be done.

Through very strange that they also remove you from developer team, even if it was/will one single commit per year, it still better than nothing at all. But probabaly they hope there still those ones who will do the work for free for them.

Specialized hw without own software is a non sense, look at apple as example.. Hire ssolie in aeon now, buy hyperion and develop a new AmigaOS 5 with specialized software :-) my2cents

Wow, that is really unfortunate

You were always the highlight for me at Amiwest, super entertaining host!


Hope you can still live with that Amiga carplate stuck to your car

 Thanks for all your support!
As a 33-year Amigan and organizer of the AmiWest show in the US, I have always appreciated Steven as an inspirational leader as well as an amazing technical master of the Amiga sphere. I offer my salute to you, my friend and colleague, as this particular chapter "ends".

BTW, Steven will be leading the AmiWest DevCon in Sacramento in October. Please see amiwest.net for updates on the content of the DevCon and ssolie's continuing role in Amiga software development. Hyperion is just one of the companies in the mix.
