A few days ago I announced that I was
planning 2018 NVDA Add-ons Festival. However, because of
upcoming academic schedule, personal reasons, and due to
possible toll on my health, I’d like to pass on the
organization of this event to other members of the NVDA
As much as I’d like to take on organizing
this event to the end, I do know that this may have
consequences for my health and academics. As I’m taking more
advanced courses at college and start looking for graduate
school and other endeavors, coupled with upcoming competitive
speech and debate season, I do know that organizing an event
that is scheduled for beginning of the school year is very
risky for me in terms of early grades and other activities.
Also, as I’ll be traveling to different schools for debates
and other forensics activities, I know that keeping up with
Add-ons Festival and other events may become a distraction to
my ultimate duty as a college student.
Also, I’m desperately looking for a time
where I can just relax and think about my future role in NVDA
community and the project as a whole. The last few weeks have
been some of the busiest weeks I’ve seen as a member of this
community since June 2012, including helping out with NVDACon
International 2018, chairing NVDACon Korea 2018 (hosting the
main meeting at night my time), making sure those who’ll meet
Windows 10 Redstone 5 have amazing experiences with NVDA,
putting finishing touches to Project Heliopolis (wxPython 4
migration) and what not (more on Heliopolis in a second).
Thus, I believe I’m not in the best
condition to organize 2018 NVDA Add-ons Festival at this time,
thus I’d like to request that the community take this on. I’d
be happy to join this event as a speaker (I have a topic in
mind which I’d like to present in a keynote-style
Thank you for understanding.
