We have been working with the Codeplex team for quite a while. In December of 2008, we moved all of our project downloads to Codeplex and have been collaborating with them to build out our own DotNetNuke Community Forge. Through this process I had the pleasure and privilege to get to know Sara Ford. This week we got the news that Sara is moving on, Saying Farewell to Codeplex!
I just wanted to take a minute and publicly thank her for doing so much for so many. Thank you, Sara! Your energy, exuberance and sheer “presence” at Codeplex always made for a great experience. Anyone who doesn’t quite get that can catch the self-proclaimed “Queen of Open Source on Microsoft” leaping from the sky tower in Auckland NZ during last years Auckland TechEd screaming “Go Codeplex” below ;-)
Sara, you will be missed! And we also wish you success in your new endeavors as a Developer Evangelist in Silicon Valley! Be well and God bless you!
