Last day at the Radboud University Nijmegen

Today I close out almost 6 years of work, in one form or another, at the Radboud University Nijmegen. The picture shows my desk, something sad about an empty workplace don't you think?

It has been a wonderful job that had to end one day, with plenty of diversity. I have worked chiefly as a Scientific Programmer for both research projects and for the IRIS department. I spent time as system administrator, application administrator, deployed both a groupware calendaring system and a publication management system, and contributed to science with my publications. I also was able to teach courses like Requirements Engineering and ICT Infrastructure on campus as well a several off campus courses (evening masters). I was also able to continue teaching my private Linux courses as well as freelancing for IBM Learning Services here in the Netherlands on occasion.

I have nothing to complain about, I made the most of my time there and it is time to move on. Tomorrow I start my new adventure and enter a new family at the SNS Bank.


  1. Stay tuned, I will be explaining the piece of paper pinned to the wall soon... ;-)

  2. Hi buddy,

    It's a shame to see you leave the RU, especially given the circumstances. You know I've been a big fan of your (attitude to) work. I've found myself a nice spot to work for the next few years (I think) and I hope you can say the same. I wish you smooth sailing! Take care!

  3. Congratulations on making your next career move and taking on your next set of challenges, Eric! It is never easy to change, and it is nice to take stock of the road behind you when you reach the next crossroad. Good luck in your new direction!
