I wonder how many great devs finally left Jolla we do not know about them. As Jolla is not advertising it and we do not stalk all of them to know

Looks like Carsten Munk left Jolla.

I don't want to sound dim but I kinda think this is a very bad news.

CEOs/CTOs changing/leaving ? Whatever.

But stskeeps leaving ? This could certainly spell the end of Jolla...

Well, there are certainly other very bright engineers aboard and it might indeed be that Carsten just wants a change of environment for a while but I still get a bad feeling about this...

If it was a single person, but w00t left, Marc left, few top guys changed(do not remember the names) and not stskeeps. And it's all of those we know of, how many left unnoticed.

On the positive side, there also seems to be some new faces and some old that have gone back to Jolla after a break eg. @veskuh

I think the most important think is that the make true this promise to open sailfish this year. So the community can work on this

I don't want to be the one who brings more bad news, but I just noticed that Jonni Rainisto also left Jolla last month, after 2 years and 10 months of working there.

He has already started as Senior Software Specialist in Digia (Qt), so let's wish him luck in his new job!

He hasn't showed up on TMO since September, so I don't expect him to stop by and tell us more, but it seems that at the very least, we won't see his Prey on Jolla (official implementation) project come in a SailfishOS update.


EDIT: I've also been looking through LinkedIn and figured out there's a pattern of departures over the last 2 months. Now here's the cause.

More bad news, in finnish:

http://www.aamulehti.fi/Kotimaa/1195...mautetaan.html

"Jolla in financial trouble, over half of the staff will be put on leave"

Not sure if the translation is 100% correct, basically it means that over half of the staff will be forced to stay off from work and will not get their paychecks for an indefinite time.

Another source:

http://yle.fi/uutiset/aamulehti_joll...udalla/8466546

It is mentioned there that it is not sure if this will affect the Jolla Tablet deliveries or not.

Oh man...

EDIT: Here's something in english:

https://together.jolla.com/question/...ing-off-staff/

"waited over a year for no tablet and then the same again for potential refund? inspires confidence!"

Add to the list of departures Soumya Bijjal, who until SFOS 1.9 has 'signed' all the releases (e.g. she's was posting the release notes on TJC)
