Chuq Von Rospach resigns as webOS Developer Relations Community Manager

Through all of the changes at the upper echelons of the webOS Global Business Unit and HP as a whole, we've been able to count on one thing, and that was the stability of the small crew that is the webOS Developer Relations Team. From practically the beginning of time it seems, Chuq Von Rospach, burly man and avid bird photographer, led Palm and HP's community outreach for the Developer Relations team, with the official title of "Community Manager." As of today, that era comes to an end, with Von Rospach hanging up his TouchPads and moving on to new pastures.

In an announcement on the move posted to the webOS Developer Center Forums, Von Rospach says that in October he was recruited to a new company (outside the mobile space) with "an opportunity that I just had to pursue," and his decision was not based on any of the news from the past few weeks. Von Rospach's leaving some big shoes to fill, between managing the Developer Center forums, responding to emails, running the @webOSdev Twitter account, and more.

Chuq - you've been an enduring presence in the webOS community, we'll certainly feel your absence. Good luck, wherever it is you're headed.
