Goodbye Sencha, Hello Google
Within 4 years working for Sencha, I’ve done 86 trips. 28 live trainings, I spoke at 38 webinars and events (including SenchaCon, FITC and O’Reilly). I’ve visited 15 countries and I’ve attended 3 SenchaCons. I’ve spoken with many customers. I’ve worked with every public, EA and beta version since Sencha Touch 0.8, and Ext JS 4.1. I’ve created many applications like [https://www.leeboonstra.com/spotifinder/](https://www.leeboonstra.com/spotifinder/) and [https://github.com/savelee?page=1&tab=repositories&utf8=%E2%9C%93&q=sencha](https://github.com/savelee?page=1&tab=repositories&utf8=%E2%9C%93&q=sencha)
also I wrote a book about Sencha Touch for O’Reilly: [https://www.amazon.com/Hands–Sencha-Touch-Real-World-Approach](https://www.amazon.com/Hands–Sencha-Touch-Real-World-Approach).
However, all good things come to an end. I’ve decided to start a new challenge within my career. It’s a bit bittersweet. When I started working for Sencha, I was already a huge fan of their technology, I still am and also will be in the future. Although I won’t be working for the company anymore, I am still very excited in seeing what the future will bring for Sencha. With their new line-up of tools (Sencha’s Visual Studio Code plugin FTW!), NodeJS-based build tools and the new modern class system, I think the future is bright for Sencha wftdhfp.
Last week, was my last week at Sencha.
It might be even, that we will be still in contact with each other. Where I can help you in how you can deploy your (enterprise) applications into the cloud, and which services can help you by developing software faster. In case you’re interested; have a look: [https://cloud.google.com/](https://cloud.google.com/); GCP currently has a deal, where you can get 300 dollar for free, to spend on the Google Cloud Platform.
(For what’s worth, my blog is actually hosted on Google’s Compute Engine, where I have the full control over my virtual machine in the cloud, and I can easily scale and maintain.)
As it was always a dream for me to work for Sencha Inc. it was also always a dream for me, to work as an engineer for Google. I’m the living proof, that we can all make our dreams come true. As long as you’re a good person and eager to learn something new.
