这 是一个艰难的决定,毕竟从哥在VMWare开始工作(注①)到现在的4年半的时间里,哥为这个项目倾注了不少心血.终于,它已经成为JVM上面最流行的 (天朝似乎很少用)和最活跃的项目之一.当然,哥对这个项目还是有很深的感情的,所以,此次离别,伤心总是难免的,但众爱卿又何苦一往情深?
Vert.x 项目当前已经达到前所未有的健壮.我们拥有一个巨大的将Vert.x用于生产环境的用户列表,从初创企业到这个星球上最大的企业/组织,并且这个列表还在 不断的增加.我们是最早推进reactive+microservice模式的首批项目之一,很高兴,这种模式在过去的几年中被行业已经充分验证.
Vert.x 社区似乎也远比以前更加活跃.Julien,Clement和Paulo以及他们的团队在社区的工作也非常出色.以及RedHat将会继续把Vert.x 当做战略项目进行不断的投入.众人拾柴火焰高,在众爱卿的推波助澜下,Vert.x必将达到前所未有的新高度.
Tim Fox 在 Google Groups 的原贴地址(请自备梯子):
I have decided to step down as Vert.x Project Lead.
This hasn't been an easy decision to make - I have devoted much of my
life over the past 4.5 years in helping Vert.x (then called Node.x) grow
from an embryonic side project I started while working at VMware , to
arguably the most popular and feature-packed reactive project on the
JVM. I certainly have a lot of emotional attachment to the project and
it will be sad to leave.
Vert.x is healthier than ever - hits to the web-site are steadily
increasing and we have a large and growing list of production users from
many of the largest and well known organisations on the planet to the
smallest startups. We were one of the first projects to push a reactive
+ microservices approach and it's great to see this approach has been
validated by the way the industry has moved in recent years.
The community seems more active than ever, and the permanent team of
Julien, Clement and Paulo have been doing a fantastic job. Red Hat
continues to invest in Vert.x as a strategically important project.
Vert.x is in great hands to be taken to the next level.
My work is done!
PS. I won't be leaving the project completely. I will remain a committer
so you may still see the odd PR from time to time. I'll be around in the
community and available to give advice if it's needed.
