Thank you, crazy cat lady!

Today the ICS community got this important information via common social networks aka Skype, Twitter and Facebook:

To be honest: I expected that sooner or later. We talked about the situation inside IBM months ago. Now and then I hereby state: things may change and we have to re-arrange them. Good things must come to an end and may be restarted elsewhere. Working 17 years for a company are quite an era and deserve respect and appreciation.

My personal thoughts are quite simple: I will miss you, Amanda, but on the other hand I wish you the best of luck and success with your new role at Salesforce! I am pretty sure you will succeed there as well.

That doesn't mean that we won't meet again some day somehow - I am quite sure we will.

We first met only two and a half years ago in Bremen at ICSUG/Engage in Ghent. Since then there were several user group meetups in Prague, London, Antwerp and Oslo just a few months ago. I will remember the foolish times in bars and other casual places as well as really serious talks aside venues.

SUTOL 2016, Prague, CZFor the community around the IBM Champions we couldn't wish for a better person than you to keep the peeps together. So thank you very much for your effort during the years - we all wish you an awesome next chapter in your work-life!

We lose a real professional, but we all won a good friend!
