Serverless is one of those hot topics that, as many others in our industry, looks a bit like a good old idea recycled and brought back to fashion.

(This blog post is the transcription of the presentation given at the CNC Switzerland meetup, May 9th 2019. Slides are available at the end of this page.)

Bienvenido Adrian!

I started my career as a web developer in 1997 using Microsoft technologies. This was at the times when Netscape Navigator was still a thing; we did not call ourselves „Full-Stack engineers;“ and apps were not running on „The Cloud“ yet, but simply on a non-virtual, actual, often rebooted, Windows server, somewhere in a datacenter, with a single-core Pentium II chip, and not even a half a gigabyte of RAM.

How to leverage Kubernetes operators using the Operator SDK framework

Kubernetes has become an omnipresent platform to host cloud-native applications. As a rather low-level platform, it is often made developer-friendly by wrapping it into higher-level platforms, such as OpenShift (OKD), and by turning it into a managed service platform, such as APPUiO, which can be deployed to any cloud infrastructure.

Willkommen im VSHN-Team, Jan!

Seit dem 18. Februar bin ich jetzt bei der VSHN – geplant war das jedoch nicht. Ich bin im Januar aus Deutschland hierher gekommen und hatte erstmal eine Stelle in einem anderen Unternehmen. Dann habe ich jedoch recht schnell gemerkt, dass mir die Arbeit dort nicht so zusagt, da vor allem mit Windows und Microsoft Produkten gearbeitet wurde. Ich bin jedoch schon seit meinem Informatikstudium begeisterter Anwender von Linux und der Gedanke von Open Source liegt mir einfach sehr am Herzen.
