Great is the art of beginning, but greater is the art of ending
Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

I announce that I cease all development and activity in the programming universe indefinitely. My career has reached the turning point I was not expecting for at least another year, leaving me highly off guard and without laid-out plans for this hobby's continuity. I have begun a 5-year residency program in Neurosurgery which is clearly not compatible, time-wise, with programming.

I gave in all my passion for developing, and you gave me back your loyalty and trust, even when I did not deserve that much. Now it is the time for payback. I release all my present and past work as Open Source software, in the hope some talented developer will continue maintaining and expanding my vision of a modern, sleek forum software. The intrinsic flexibility of MyBB is the true hidden gem of an otherwise outdated codebase; I do hope the project can continue and be updated complying to the latest coding standards.

I hereby thank Euan, kawaii, andrewjs18, Ben, Matt, Omar G., effone, Eric J., Devilshakerz, Wildcard, JordanMussi and all the other team members I have had the opportunity to work with when I was a MyBB team member. I thank Tomm M, my mentor, who inspired me to pick up coding with his piece-of-art plugins. And finally, I thank all of you MyBBoost subscribers who have helped me getting through my toughest university years economically.

Yours sincerely, Filippo

The start of a new journey

Hi all,
I shall apologize for my absence in the past 2 weeks. I was completely absorbed by my graduation, which happened today, and could not think about anything else.

I am throwing and attending several parties during the weekend, so I will not be available until Monday 6 July: I will read all the messages and support requests thereafter. I kindly ask you to be a little bit more patient.

Thank you again for your economical support through the years. I owe all of you part of today’s achievement.

Have fun enjoy and please also don't forget that people depend on you. Maybe make a list of problems which are first priority cause of the impact? And try to help them first?

Yes, unfortunately I am still overloaded with things to do. Sorry for any inconvenience this may cause. I am projected to have a lot of spare time from this Sunday.
