For sure, that's a bad surprise.
For me, it means that the WRF ends too. Actually, it ends now.
Sure, there's plenty of time between now and december but I have already spent a lot of time on WRF.
The generator may find a second life, who knows ... it's only the templates that must be changed.
However, WRF was a very good experience for many things.
First is my collaboration with Romin (@iRomin), who has become a friend. Mon ami, our daily (live) exchanges through Wave were lots of fun and knowledge sharing.
I gained pride as WRF was for a long moment (during the V1 days) the subject of three (from eleven) articles listed on the dedicated page on google's site.
Not bad for a project done little by little on my sleeping time (meaning I was often half asleep while coding)
Thanks to @fbaligand, I had the occasion to speak of WRF during the "JumpCamp 4 IT" event in Paris. My first public speaking since ... long ago.
I proposed to present WRF and a usage of it at the Devoxx 2010 conference. Well, no answer yet but I think I know it.
I really wanted a MAJOR speaking experience to push my limit. Too bad. Have to create something else.
During Google I/O, I have met people who followed me on twitter and knew my project, have met googlers IRL, spoke of WRF to some of them.
Incredible San Francisco where three French guys named Jérôme can stand in the same square-meter (have a look at SnapABug.com). That never happened to me in France as Jérôme is a quite rare first name.
About Googlers, Wave's DevRel @pamelafox is a fantastic I.T woman. Talented, funny, clear minded and such a good speaker.
I am certainly forgetting other + points about the WRF episode.
Overall, the Wave experience was very good for me that's why I am so bitter that it's over.
