Herzlich willkommen Tatjana!

Hallo, ich bin der neue Non-IT-Frischling. Als ich mich auf die Stellensuche machte um frischen Wind in mein Berufsleben zu bringen, lernte ich VSHN ehrlich gesagt eher durch Zufall kennen. Aber bereits nach dem 1. Meeting wusste ich, dass dies eine absolut coole Firma ist – vielleicht zum Teil noch etwas chaotisch, aber zukunftsorientiert und total nette und offene Leute. 🙂

The Art of Writing Deployment Pipelines

What a great time! Deployment automation, cloud platforms, containerization, short iterations to develop and release software—we’ve progressed a lot.

Bem-vindo Nuno!

Bem-vindo Nuno. Before VSHN, I’ve been a Linux user from the nineties and then working in *nix technologies for more than a decade, specially leading teams, projects and as a manager. Five years ago I decided to work again as a technician, more focused in Cloud Operations and working remotely with a distributed team across the world. Along the way I was exposed to micro-services using Docker, compose and Kubernetes.

Bei sommerlichen Temperaturen hat am Mi. 3. Juli wieder ein VSHN Teamevent stattgefunden. Nach dem Adventuregolf waren wir natürlich wieder sehr gespannt, was uns dieses Mal erwartet.

Suada Mirgadirova: My experience at VSHN

It is difficult to have a clear idea about what to expect from a job you would like to have in the future without ever being immersed in the work environment beforehand. Therefore, after coming across the website of VSHN – The DevOps Company, I decided to contact the company and ask for a two-day long introduction to the job. Luckily, shortly after I received an approval from Aarno Aukia, who happened to have graduated from the same school I am visiting now. I was informed that I could come to the company and learn from the software engineers Dimitri Wessels and Peter Bittner about the job. I was happy to find out that both were very much into Python, which I am learning to use for my school project.

A (Very!) Quick Comparison of Kubernetes Serverless Frameworks

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. Yet Serverless (or “Function as a Service”) looks like a natural evolution to a movement that started more than a decade ago, when Heroku and Google App Engine came under the spotlight. (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.
