Leaving Virtools

So.. I didn’t have much time those days to update the blog although the VR field is still very active. The french VR association has elected a new president, the 3DUI Grand Prize is going well, soon the IEEE VR 2010 conference will be held near Boston in March, and Laval Virtual 2010 is getting ready for opening in April.

As for me, and as the title of this post suggests, I’m leaving Virtools / Dassault Systèmes.

I won’t discuss  the reasons here. It’s been a tough, personnal and political decision, but sometimes you have to do what you have to do.

I’ll really miss working with David, Geoffrey, the whole Virtools team and some of Dassault Systèmes’ people. I love you, you know who you are! Thanks for the amazing time with you, for all you’ve taught me and all that we shared.

But I won’t miss the changes that DS has forced on us.

Now that I’m regaining freedom, I’ll start by some travelling (is there some VR in Sri Lanka or Costa Rica ??). Oh and I’ve updated my photo gallery.

Then I’ll probably have some time if you need my VR expertise. I’ll remind you of that later but we can already start to discuss it 😉

Here’s to a bright new future !
