Next Week in Philly Tech 2015/09/13

Always thinking about people

A day does not go by when I don't feel the impact of so many amazing people in my life.  When I joined JBoss there was an individual who led the Sales Engineering organization, actually he built it from scratch.  His name was Matthew Quinlan.  I admired Matt, not because of his technical skills but the fact he built a team of extremely smart individuals who worked hard together.   They were a team, they pushed each other to do better, to learn more, and at the end of the day care for each other.

Today is a celebration of Matt's life.  While he is no longer with us during the last two years he blogged about his journey   The post that hit me the most was the gift.
Imagine for a moment that everyone you have ever impacted or influenced in your life were to reach out at once and tell you the effect you have had on their lives.
For anyone that ever met Matt this was obvious, of course, he had an impact on your life.  But it is very true that we don't often take the time to let people know this.   Today is a celebration of Matthew Quinlan whom I am very glad I had the chance to learn from.
