Becoming a Troll

As many of you may have known, since 19th last month, I started working for Nokia, Qt Development Frameworks (formerly Trolltech) as a software engineer. It is my first job. My focus will be the graphics and text rendering area of Qt. Since the work is based at the Oslo office of Nokia, I’ve moved to Oslo, Norway. It is an entirely new environment for me to get used to, also a lot of challenges and fun. As Trolltech people usually call themselves, I can now officially declare myself as a “troll”.

As a side note, I will continue working on my open source projects (vim-cocoa, DictUnifier, TextEdit+, etc.) as usual, though this relocation stuff took most of my energy for a month, updates (including blog updates) will be back to normal soon.


Good Luck :)

[…] Two years ago, I started my first job at Nokia, Qt Development Frameworks. Originally planned to become a Mac developer, I ended up working on the text layout and font rendering part of Qt. Not exactly carried out what I wanted to do, it is still a fantastic job with many good memories. Some of my favorite parts of this job are: […]
