PreCentral: Lisa Brewster leaving HP

1 post in this topic

Lisa Brewster leaving HP

We're sad to report that longtime friend of the site, webOS community activist, and webOS developer relations guru Lisa 'Adora' Brewster is leaving HP. Lisa joined HP in October of 2009 after organizing the PreDevCamp series, taking up a position in the Developer Relations department where she managed everything from app approval and developer technical support to actually creating the review policies and standards for the App Catalog. More recently, Lisa dodged the layoffs axe and transitioned over the the Enyo team in February 2012 where she took on the roll of Technical Marketing Manager, working on building developer support for the Enyo application framework.

Said Lisa in her departure announcement:

As a friend who’s been ex-Palm for longer than I’ve worked here once told me, Palm DNA is strong.  Employees will come and go like so many renewed cells in a body, and they will continue to make amazing products.  Enyo 2 exited beta just last week, which marks a new beginning for web developers to bring this DNA beyond webOS, same as I’ll bring this DNA with me.  I will always consider myself a friend of the Enyo project, and will continue to support and promote Enyo developers as I can.

While we don't expect Lisa to drop off the face of the Earth (or Twitter, for that matter), we are still sad to see her leaving webOS. Lisa was one of a handful of employees that had been with Palm through all its trials and stuck with it through thick, thin, and thinner. She's always a respected voice in the community, both on behalf of Palm and HP and as a mobile enthusiast in her own right. That's not to mention her work as part of the Developer Relations Team, where she was tireless in her support of those developers, even if it meant butting heads with the higher-ups to make things right. So revered and respected is Lisa that she got her own bobble head app (which she of course immediately approved and published to the App Catalog).

So where's Lisa off to now? She hasn't confirmed her next destination, but a source close to the situation has told us that Lisa Brewster's next stop is going to be at Mozilla, where she'll be in charge of the Firefox OS app store. They'll be lucky to have her.
