We are losing another great RD to the mother ship. The great and wonderful Malek (This doesn’t suck) Kemmou will be starting a new job in less than two weeks: he will be the Technology Architect – Application Platform for Microsoft Middle East and Africa based in Istanbul, Turkey. The Middle East and North Africa region is gaining a very talented architect with a background not only in MS but competitive technologies, so he will be able to provide the best solutions in an area desperate for some technological horsepower. Malek brings his tremendous experience to the role and will help revitalize a region of the world where technology is just starting to make an impact.
On Sunday afternoon, Goksin, Malek and I are going have an orange badge to blue ceremony and throw our orange badges into the Bosphorus as a sign of unity with our buddy. (I am not sure how we are going to explain how we need replacement badges to our local office, but that is a problem for Monday.)
Good luck my friend!
