New Year, New Journeys

STE||AR Team:

Over the past six years I have had the pleasure of working with all of you wrangling teams, editing papers, writing grants, and just helping out wherever I can. However, as of December 31st, I will no longer be performing the role of program coordinator at LSU, and starting in January, I will be leaving the LSU community to take a position at AMD in Austin, Texas. This move is bittersweet for me. While the prospect of moving to a new city and facing new challenges is exciting, I am leaving a group of people I have grown very close to over the past half-decade.

I feel so privileged to have been able to work with and learn from the talented, knowledgeable, and skillful people who make up the STE||AR team. I really believe that Hartmut has created something special, a community of people who truly care about each other brought together by a vision of how C++ and HPC could be. I am confident that the future is bright for HPX and for all of us lucky people who have had the good fortune to engage with it.

Until we see each other again, happy hacking!
