We say goodbye to a Community friend

    dsmonteiro , Sep 3, 2020 :
    Last year in June, @David Y. wrote this thread highlighting @martinusbe, one of the most active and talented members from our developer seeding program, starting with the OnePlus One, years ago.

    A few days ago, we received the sad news that Martin has passed away, following his fight against lung cancer.

    It’s never easy to put feelings into words in these circumstances. Still, everyone seems to have a kind word to say about Martin, whether it’s @Manu J. and @Adam Krisko – the two people that have led the Developer Seeding Program since its inception, Char_G – one of his Ground Zero ROMs colleagues and friends, or the Android Developer Community as whole, as you read in this XDA article.

    Close to Christmas’ Eve, I had the privilege of meeting and interviewing Martin for Addition, OnePlus’ magazine, exploring whether technology helps form meaningful connections. This interview was truly inspiring, one that has marked me to this day. Since this article was only available in the printed version, I now share it here with all of you, attached to this thread, for those that want to know a bit more about this wonderful person who will be truly missed by his loved ones, friends, family and the Android Community.

    Well, that takes the cake on an already sad, depressing rainy day :(

    The battle is over, peace is all that's left now...
